After the 2017 calendar year, I did the first annual "100 Coasters" retrospective. I had a banner year for myself, and discussing/reviewing 100 different roller coasters that I rode seemed like an interesting way to go about doing a review of the entire year in a nice, neat format. I didn't expect to have that kind of year in 2018 again: I started the year on the unemployment line, for starters. By the time it was over, I had actually surpassed my huge year with a monster 73 new coasters riden. Getting 70 coasters is super tough; it takes real effort. I was frequently at parks from March all the way through New Year's Eve. I visited 19 states, 2 Canadian provinces, and 5 European countries. From RMCs to Mountain Coasters to the ubiquitous SBF Visa Spinning Coasters that reproduce like rabbits, I saw a lot of stuff and I rode it too.
