How to tick a coaster

Every coaster you've ridden is recorded with us. Always enter the date of your first ride. Later rides are currently not recorded.

For every place Coaster-Count displays a coaster you will see a coloured dot to the right end of the coasters facts row. This dot is grey if you cannot ride the coaster, red for non ridden coasters and turns blue after ticking.

Press on this coloured dot and a popup will open. You may just click on Store or optionally add the date ridden. There you will find some buttons that let you quickly access the current date, yesterday and the last few dates you used. Further you can select the date by choosing a year, a month and a day. If you are not sure about the month or day you can just choose a year or year and month.

How do you find coasters to tick? There a multiple ways: Choose Catalogue in the menu, select a continent and a country and you will see all coasters of this country. You can also use maps. Again choose Catalogue in the menu and select the map of a continent or a continent and the map of a country. You will now see a map with dots, click on a dot to see the coasters in the chosen location. Another way is to choose Search in the menu and enter some letters to find a specific coaster or park. An advanced option lets you also see the dots in the friends list.

Colours for coasters, parks and on maps

These colours are used for coasters and on maps. On maps, red dots are marked with the number of unridden coasters.

We use the same colours for parks and maps but without icons. A location containing a coaster under construction are shown with:    

Filters and Medals

Besides the real coaster (for definition) we provide some more categories of coasters that are indeed lacking basic coaster-characteristics (Enclosed track, always on track, moving up and down by gravity, look like a coaster, passive ride). Alpine coasters do not go up and are no passive rides, butterflies do not have enclosed tracks and do not look like coasters, powered coasters do not move by gravity, water coasters leave track and undefined coasters make just people happy. You may want to ride these coaster anyway but have in mind, these credits will NOT affect ranking and count seen by other peoples. Therefore the real compare value is the strict number of coasters.

As an example: You rode 100 coasters including 20 butterflies. Your friend rode 90 coasters, no butterflies. Your total is 100 and in the rankings you are 10 coasters above your friend. On the other hand, your friend sees you rode 80 coasters and in his ranking he is 10 above you. The crucial number is the strict number of coasters including only real coasters, so please no conflicts.

You can set your personal coaster definition here. All filters turned on is the recommended default.
You will get a for every filter turned on.

  Filter is turned on, you agree these are not coasters (recommended)

  Filter is turned off, you want to ride these coasters


About unique coasters, relocations and differences in sum

Coasters can be relocated or sold, therefore they may be listed serveral times in our records. At all locations or at all owners. However, these coasters are identical and therefore count only as one credit even if you have ridden the coaster at different locations / at different owners.

Coasters that are listed several times in our records are always attached by number of identical coaster in brackets.

If you ride such identical coasters at different locations / at different owners over country or continent borders, the sum of ridden coasters in countries / continents will not match the actual number of ridden coasters. For example: You ride the same identical coaster in North America and Europe, it shows you have ridden 1 coaster in North America and 1 in Europe, that's a total of 2. However you only earn 1 credit.

About rare coasters, points and evaluation

Every coaster gets between 0 and 10 points depending how many people have ridden it. These rare points are displayed on the coaster details page.

Please mind, the current points are only updated once in a few hours.

Please bear in mind, only active and visible users take part in the rankings, therefore the order my change often. A user will go inactive and drop from all rankings if not seen for over 60 days.

Information about complete countries, their evaluation and the rules

A country is finished after ridding all non traveling coasters, dependant on the personal coaster definition. e.g. If there is a butterfly and a user has filtered butterflies then the butterfly doesn't need to be ridden to finish the country. Also you do not have to ride coasters already ridden in another country.

Futhermore you do have to ride a minimum of one coaster in a country to get it to finished, even if there is no coaster in the country you have to ride.

This calculation is cached and will be updated once a few hours.

Please bear in mind, only active and visible users take part in the rankings, therefore the order my change often. A user will go inactive and drop from all rankings if not seen for over 60 days.

About To Go coasters

In this ranking only non traveling coasters of a country are relevant. All numbers are based on the users personal coaster definition. If there is a butterfly for example and a user has filtered butterflies then the butterfly dont need to be ridden. That may result in different numbers although people may have ridden the same coasters. In general: the more you filter, the less you have to ride.

Futhermore you do have to ride a minimum of one coaster in this country to be shown in this list, even if there is no coaster in the country you have to ride.

Please bear in mind, only active and visible users take part in the rankings, therefore the order my change often. A user will go inactive and drop from all rankings if not seen for over 60 days.

About ride sequence, reordering and tips

The coasters will be ordered depending on the ride date entered and the internal timestamp of counting. You should always count coasters in the same order as ridden.

About sharing tours with friends

You may share your tours with your friends. A shared tour will be directly listed in your friends list of tours. There are two different settings: View (no ability to change anything) and Edit (your friend will be able to edit the tour the same as you except for the options made in the overview page of your tours).

Please have in mind, sharing tours is possible even if you set the visibility of a tour to nobody. Both options do not affect each other.

About sharing a tour on Facebook

You can share tours on Facebook. Coaster-Count will generate a post with the headline of your tour title, a map based image with the route of your tour and the number of days, parks and coasters. The tour has to be public to be shared. You can also share tours of other users when they are public.

To share a tour, edit or view it then press the Facebook button.

You must log into the Facebook Coaster-Count App and grand permission to post to your timeline. Please bear in mind, you will be logged into Facebook with your browser. Please go to the Facebook page and manually log out if prefered.

About hiding counts

If you don't want to ride a coaster, you can now hide it. The colour of the coaster in all lists and on maps will turn to black. Please note, this is only invisible to yourself and will not affect the calculation for completed countries.
