The current record for the most ridden in 24 hours is 40 details are as follows:
A team of seven people (Patricia M. Byron, Denise Lau Cortopassi, David A. Curley, David M. Escalante, John C. Green, Jr., John Sutherland, Steven Wilson) from the American Coaster Enthusiasts (ACE), Mission, Kansas, USA, rode on 40 different roller coasters at a total of eight different amusement parks from October 14-15, 2000.
The amusement parks, located in northern and southern California, were (in visit order): Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk; Paramount's Great America; Six Flags Marine World; Scandia Amusement Park; Fountain Valley Family Fun Center; Knott's Berry Farm; Adventure City; Six Flags Magic Mountain. The participants were driven between the parks in two Ford Club Wagons. The record attempt began at 5 p.m. on October 14 and finished at 5 p.m. the following day. The rides ridden (in order) were: Giant Dipper, Sea Serpent, Hurricane (Santa Cruz); Demon, Green Slime Machine, Stealth, Top Gun, Greased Lightnin', Taxi Jam, Vortex, Invertigo, Grizzly (Paramounts); Medusa, Cobra, Boomerang, Kong, Roar, Road Runner Express (Six Flags Marine World); Scandia Screamer, Little Screamer (Scandia Family Fun Center); Dare Devil (Upland Family Fun Center); Ghostrider, Timberline Twister, Montezuma's Revenge, Jaguar, Boomerang (Knott's Berry Farm); Bumper to Bumper Freeway, Tree Top Riders (Adventure City Theme Park); Canyon Blaster, Revolution, Viper, Ninja, Superman the Ride, Gold Rusher, Psyclone, Riddler's Revenge, Batman the Ride, Colossus - backwards, Colossus - forwards, Goliath (Six Flags Magic Mountain).
I was greatly disappointed that this record was done by a few out-of-towners from Kansas. Shouldn't California residents be a part of this record too? I think so, especially since we know the area better.
First mistake: the venture started at 5:00 in the evening right in the middle of rush hour traffic, costing 1-2 hours time. Second mistake: they missed 7 coasters! That's right the record could've been 47! So, to do this right, you need a native Californian to guide you through. This is why I am doing this. If you wish to sponsor us, please email me. Thanks!

The proposed itinerary. I had to confirm that we could arrive at these places at these times after figuring the ride time in the parks before making this list. This is at best scenario, so we may need to eliminate a location in case we fall behind the rigorous schedule.

6:30 Paramount Great America

I like to have 30 minutes to spare!
Note there will be no time to sleep in the first 24 hours
If we get ahead of schedule we will get on the Sky Coaster at MGM Grand.
I would like the sponsor to consider letting us set
48 hour record best case scenario 120 (46 Texas, Okla, New Mexico, Utah)
72 hour record best case scenario 161 (41 Missouri, Illinois, Minn., Ind., Kans.
96 hour record best case scenario 202 (41 Ohio, Mich., Penn.,)
One week record best case scenario 300 (Can't give it all away now)
Two week record best case scenario 500 (Yes, I am crazy)
It's been figured out and it can be done.
Average amount of sleep, if we get sponsored on the full 14 days is about 3 hours per day.
Expect a few headaches, body aches, tiredness, sleep deprevation, etc... Eating will be minimal and as needed. Just enough to get us by.
We will also need a few goal monitors stationed to make sure we are on time. Video coverage will come from body and helmet cams.
I'd also consider a real time reality show to be aired on national TV as it happens, catching every piece of vomit that may be a flying across the video screen.
