On my latest trip to Disney I was able to walk down the stairs on Space Mountain. It was a really cool experience seeing the lights on inside the mountain and then getting evac-Ed off.

Kinda bringing up a dead topic, i didnt want to start a new one and this is sorta related to the topic. Two questions, does repiv, or any backwards coaster that usually operates as a forward coaster count as a new credit? And do dueling coasters count as 1 or 2 credits? Ive ridden both sides on AE and Gemini, so I'm wondering if they count as 1 or 2.

Dueling do as long as they're two seperate tracks (So not mobius-loop)

Backwards, I'd go with no because it's the same ride/track as before, just with the trains turned around.

Although I would not count relocated rides, I have never been on one at both parks. Rajun Cajun I rode here but not at SFA, and Iron Wolf and Deja Vu I rode for the first time after they were already shipped off from SFGAm. Maybe one day if I get on a relocation I will give it more thought but for now I wouldn't.

I would say that if I have ridden it, and it got relocated, then it isn't a new credit. But, everyone has their own opinions.

Along the lines of credits, how do you all score rides that have 2 tracks like Eagle, Gemini, Racer (King's Island), Space Mountain (Disney World) , Dueling Dragons (Universal) , etc?? I have each of these as 2 credits.

Would love to hear everyone's thoughts!

For my count, I figure if they can operate separately, I count them separate.
