Gary Coleman of Monfort Heights, Ohio, began riding the 230-foot tall steel roller coaster when it opened in 2009 "just for fun," he said, but it quickly turned into a passion.
His landmark 7,000th ride came on the Fourth of July.
Coleman has spent more than 350 hours on the one-mile long coaster since it opened, and achieved a single-day high of 111 rides on June 17, WXIX-TV, Cincinnati, reported Thursday.
