While this listing provides an in-depth overview of the rides opening during 2017, it is not exhaustive.

Except for a few instances those rides that have relocated from one park to another have been omitted from this analysis; along with those rides that have been renovated, restored or re-themed. In addition, the vast majority of rides geared towards the very young child (i.e. Alton Towers CBeebies Land) along with aquatic attractions have been omitted.

The material used to create this report has been obtained through a variety of reliable sources including the ride manufacturers, park operators, architects and designers. Per usual, no rumors or speculation of rides has been included. All information reported below has been well researched and is believed to be accurate at press time.
