Plans for 2014

At a high level I'm looking to do the following.


Bucharest @ RomaniaSofia @ Bulgaria (NEW)New Delhi @ India (NEW)Reykjavik @ Iceland (NEW)Dakar @ Senegal (NEW)Rabat @ Morocco (NEW)

Estimate is around 80 but I'm happy if I go to 100, unhappy if I go higher; I really need to keep the hobby under control.

2013 Year in Review

I had no new countries visited this year but I did still manage to visit the following.

IrelandNorthern Ireland (twice)Scotland (twice)WalesAmerica (twice)ChinaItaly

78 parks (there were more with no coasters)
17 fairs
5 Ridge Riders

and from those I was able to ride 156 new coasters. This is down on last year's 227 but is still too many so I'll be doing less next year. I did reach 1400 (Maximus @ Crealy's) and 1500 (Space Coaster @ M&D's). I only have around 70 to ride in 2014 if I'm to reach 1600.

More importantly some of my holidaying had nothing to do with coasters. I had a blast in January visiting Seattle for Twin Peak locations and the Cirque shows in Vegas, and I'm considering doing similar again next year.
