Total Timber Tour 2
About the Tour
After 18 trips to the US over 20 years, Adrian & Ian, 2 Roller Coaster Enthusiasts from the UK, have ridden over 700 Roller Coasters, and visited more than 100 Theme and Amusements Parks around the world. Before this trip, they had ridden almost every wooden coaster in the US.
In 2010, after a failed attempt 2 years earlier, they embarked on this trip with one mission - to complete their boast that they have ridden every operating wooden coaster in the US*.
The remaining coasters were spread from Alabama to California and the trip took in some new steel coasters spread across the country. It covered 24 parks, 6 new to them and 154 coasters in total, 41 new to them.
The ‘Total Timber Tour 2’ travelled from New Jersey, through Canada, Ohio, Missouri, Minnesota, Texas, Southern Alabama, and through to the West via New Mexico. The climax of the tour was a ride on ‘Terminator Salvation: The Ride’ at Six Flags Magic Mountain, California - a new wooden coaster that opened in May 2009. In all, the tour crossed 27 state lines, and totalled 7935 miles!
You can see their adventures of the trip via the daily blog which tracked the route as the pair worked their way from East to West. This website peaked at 8900+ hits a day during the tour.
