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.

Don't shoot me, but I count them both. I guess I just see it as a track record and it is easiest to enter either the other side or backwards into my spreadsheet as a new credit. This being said, I still only count Racer at Kennywood as one credit. I count re-locations, as well as if the park markets some change. Like I count Legend again at Holiday World after GCI came in and re-profiled the drop and the last turns, but not Hades this year with the new double down. Finally, VR does not count. Probably unpopular, but oh well.

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.
