5 Signs You're A Credit Whore


We all love a good rollercoaster and some of us like to keep track of what we've ridden, but there are some amongst us who live and breathe their coaster count and will do everything they can to guarantee that next coaster credit. Those people are known as cred whores. Here's ten signs you are one:

You've got some questionable attractions on your list
Anything that slightly even resembles a coaster and bam, you've whacked on a +1 to your list. I'm talking ghost trains, I'm talking the ET ride at Universal Studios. Heck I've met some people who even have those RidgeRiders you can find at some local parks on their list! If it coasts, it counts!

You've been known to go out of your way for a +1
Oh, there's a questionable Big Apple just a short FOUR HOUR drive from your family holiday? No big deal, you see nothing wrong with hiring a car and driving into the middle of the desert or taking a train journey with seven transfers to a neighbourhood even the locals won't touch with a barge pole to ride.

You've used some frankly ridiculous excuses to sneak onto a coaster
To you, any coaster  in an adults-with-children only park is just a challenge to you. Claiming you're attempting a Guinness World Record, raising money for charity or even that it's your dying wish to ride this coaster, your imagination knows no ends (and has no shame) when it comes to spinning the tale that will secure that cred.

When arguing how many credits certain coasters are worth, you'll always argue for more
Grand National? That's two. Steeplechase? That's three. Nitro at Dennlys Parc? That's two (IT HAS TWO STATIONS DAMMIT!) Even if all the signs are pointing to it being just one cred, you'll argue to the death that it's worth more just to keep hold of those precious credits.

You have no shame
You've bribed kids to ride with you without batting an eyelid. You've strolled confidently to the front seat of a Mini Apple and hopped on board without even a flinch. Who cares if everybody is pointing and laughing at you, you're the one adding a delicious plus one to your count. More fool them!

If these apply to you, then congratulations, you're a shameless credit whore! But I know you won't care, you're too busy tallying up your precious coaster count and working out when you'll be getting your next cred injection.

Talk later xoxo,

CONVERSATION
