I have reposted this thread because the last thread on this was closed by Mr. Wood (Hey, I work in Akron!) and linked to a poll thread that was closed and I could not post in it. I tried searching for "first coaster" as suggested and got this: "The following words are either very common, too long, or too short and were not included in your search: first" and ended up with 5000 search results for coaster! I WILL NOT look through 5000 threads to find the one I am looking for so here it is.

First coaster:
Jack Rabbit at Idora Park~Defunct
First steel:
Corkscrew at Geauga Lake~Defunct
First stand up:
King Cobra at Kings Island~Defunct
First suspended:
Big Bad Wolf at Busch Gardens, Williamsburg~Still thrilling
First inverted:
Raptor at Cedar Point~Still thrilling

Two out of five still standing isn't bad. Is it? So, am I lucky enough to get some rides in before these coasters closed or do I predict the future of things to come? Any guesses on when Big Bad Wolf will close?:confused:

P.S. Mr. Wood,
Send me your pay pal account or e mail and I will send you your dime.;)

My first coaster was Thunderbolt at Kennywood...which was a mistake to begin with...when you're 10, lost in the park from your group, and trying to find the bumper cars, lol, you stumble on Thunderbolt.

I remember it well enough that I almost got ejected from the train because I so short at the time...but now, I love the ride. :)

Right now, I have 24 coasters to my credit, mostly at CP and Geauga Lake...hopefully, I will visit more parks soon...:)

When I was in SFH for the first time, I only rode the Roadrunner express (kiddie ride), and the water rides.
When I started riding "real" coasters, I started with a bobsled coaster (Bob at Efteling, a park in the Netherlands that does not concentrate on coasters, but on scenery and gentle rides) because my brother said that it was cool. I liked it and I went on to Pegasus with my father. It's a not too big wooden coaster in Efteling I liked that also, and then my father went with my in my first ride with loops: Python at Efteling. It has four inversions, and I really loved the first ride. I came out saying "This goes FAST!" (it goes 55 mph, so that's not really fast). When I and a few friends went to SFH a year or so later, I tried out all coasters and I loved them all. Except for La Via Volta... those damn vekoma cars...
So:
1st: Bob at Efteling
2nd: First woodie: Pegasus at Efteling
3rd: First Looper: Python at Efteling
I don't know the exact orther, but i did
First Hyper: Goliath at SFH
First Boomerang: La Via Volta at SFH
First Mouse: Flying Dutchman Gold Mine at SFH
First Launched: Superman, the Ride at SFH
First Inverted: El Condor at SFH
And I did Robin Hood too, of course.

Looking at how some of you know every single first coaster (obviously seaier depending how long you've been riding coasters) i should sit down and have a think about this. Mind you I'm 17 (on wednesday 7th, happy birthday to me etc.!) and I started when I was 6!

First coaster ever: Thriller at Euclid Beach Park
First steel coaster: This is hard because the first two steel coasters I ever rode were in the same year, and it was a long time ago. lol The two I rode were Wild Mouse at GL, and Broadway Trip at CP, both were in the 60's sometime. Maybe you don't consider wild mouse rides and such as "steel" coasters, but we did back then.

The first standup was King Cobra at PKI, I was on my honeymoon at the time. I hated that ride, but back then the seat did not move up and down to fit your height, so as a very short person, it was not very comfortable! I kind of stood on my tippy toes. :rolleyes:

The rest of the types of coasters you're listing, I really can't remember, they're all a blur to me. But then again any coasters I rode between my first steel one to King Cobra, well, those were my hippie days. LOL, just kidding people!! I think I just don't remember because none of them really stood out in my memory. :leeloo2:

Coaster types yet to ride -...Boomerang...

It's hard to believe that there is anybody left who hasn't been on a boomerang yet...but I guess you're not missing much.


First Coaster: Millenium Force at CP

Well that's a hell of a way to start out. I don't think I would've been able to make that my first coaster ever, although I did ride it in my first day of riding coasters ever.

Yeah it's hard to believe, considering I've been on 99 coasters. But there's none in the southeast that I know of. Most of them are out of my area for some reason.

But from what I've heard, I'm not missing too much lol ;)

Ok, true story. My first ever ride on a roller coaster was at Valleyfair on the High Roller (out and back woodie). I was 5 and was so proud cause I was just barely tall enough. So my little brother and mom have to wait by the side till my dad and I get through with the ride. We wait for what seems like ages and finally get on. The ride up the lift hill felt like forever, but then we were on our way down. I was holding on for dear life, but at the bottom of the first hill, my head flew forward and I broke my nose on the hand bars on the front of the car. Blood is squirting everywhere and we're in the front. The lady behind us hands me her bandana so my dad can stop the bleeding, but by now my shirt is drenched and so are several people behind me. My dad just held me in a vice grip the rest of the ride. Now this was back in '84 so they just wiped down the seats and sent it back out. Now there'd be a guy in a chemical suit wiping everything down and sterilizing it.

Yeah I was quite scared. But I had no idea what was going on while I was on it. I just remember going down the huge hill. And everything else was a blur. When I got off I noticed there was actually a second and third hill that I didnt even notice. Oh well, it was still fun

My first coaster must have been some rink-a-dink coaster in kiddie land or wherever I was. But if you want to look at it in a "real" coaster way, it must have been JackRabbit at Kennywood Park.

Mine was Space Mountain at WDW in 1993. For being 8 years old, SM scared me a lot the first time. But I just had to keep on riding it, I don't know why, but I didn't care. I even threw away the chance to be on tv during the Very Merry Christmas Spectacular at Disney so I could get a few more rides in on Space Mountain.

Hmm isnt this the 5049th clone of this topic?

anyways.. I do not know my first coaster. I have been going to parks all my life so I grew up at parks and on rides...

The parks that "should" have my first woud be.. Whalom, Canobie, Storyland, Yorks, or Santasvillage. But I do not know what came first...

Canobie Corkscrew was my first looper in 1990-1991 when i was 5-6 years old.. lol

Mine was the old left side of the River King Mine Train at SFSL, before they moved it to Dollywood. Now it's at Magic Springs as Big Bad John. I still have trouble remembering the ride, but I remember both sides had a final drop into some weird concrete ravine where they used to store parts for rides, as well as extra logs for the log flume.

Probably my earliest memory of a coaster experience was over twenty years ago at a historic small park in my hometown of Corpus Christi, Texas (don't have any clue as to the name of the park or coaster) and a compact family-style steel coaster; it was a vague memory that I can't recall very well. The first time -- that I clearly remember -- riding a coaster was the Excalibur formerly at Six Flags Astroworld. Up until five years ago, I hardly rode any coasters then; but since 1999, I've been going to parks and riding much more consistently.

Same here. My mom is incredibly safe conscious. I was in the front car and she was in the front car as well but in the seat behind me. She was holding on to my hair the whole time. Well I suppose she had a point. This being my first roller coaster and I was 5 or 6 years old.

Sometimes, even now, she still says, " I don't know if you can go on that one. You might get brain damage." Luckily my dad is the man and he lets me go on what ever the hell I want.

First coaster: MINE TRAIN - The ride that changed roller coasters forever! The Six Flags Over Texas mine train was the world's first tubular steel roller coaster. (This coaster scared the ***** outta me when I first rode it when I was 6 yrs. old. I rode it last week and though it is still pretty cool the last drop didn't seem as steep as I remember it as a kid. Funny how your prospective is different when you grow up)

Favorite Coaster: The Hulk at Island of Adventures in Florida. I just love when you get shot ourt of that tunnel into a corkscrew. totallly awesome!!!

Other favorites I have ridden over the years:

Texas Cyclone - Six Flags Astroworld
The Rattler - Six Flags FiestaTexas
Superman Krypton Coaster - Six Flags FiestaTexas
Poltergeist - Six Flags FiestaTexas
The Texas Giant (wooden coaster) Six Flags Over Texas
Titan- Towering 255 feet drop at 85 MPH!!!! YES!!!!
Batman The Ride - Six Flags Over Texas
Mr. Freeze - Six Flags Over Texas
Dueling Dragons - IOA
The Mummy The Ride - Universal Studios Florida
Rockin' Rollercoaster Starring Aerosmith - Disney MGM Studios
Great White - Seaworld San Antonio
Serial Thriller - Six Flags Astroworld
Viper - Six Flags Astroworld
Batman The Escape - Six Flags Astroworld
Greased Lightning - Six Flags Astroworld
XLR8- Six Flags Astroworld
Mayan Mindbender - Six Flags Astroworld
Ultra Twister - Six Flags Astroworld

I think that's it... so far.

Hmm, first wooden coaster was Jack Rabbit at Clementon Park. I don't remember my first steel coaster, I KNOW it was at Great Adventure, but I can't remember exactly what coaster it was, I THINK it was Great American Scream Machine....now I'm going to a corner to go think about it...lol

My first coaster was in my back yard. Way back in the mid 60s.

I recently found this old picture. Link (http://home.comcast.net/~genefitz/gene_rollercoaster.JPG)

That's me with the tool belt, I kept the ride well maintained :)

The ride featured a double down and 2 bunny hops

My first coaster at a park was The Jumper followed by The Wild Mouse both at West Point Park

I went to Cedar Point at the age of 8. i can't remember which coaster I went on first. This was before the Raptor and anything built afterward. I know I DID NOT ride the Mean Streak or the Magnum on that visit. So, any of the others could have been it. I know my favorite from that day was the Iron Dragon.

My first roller coaster was the Rock Candy Express at Six Flags over Mid-America. My first "real" roller coaster was the River King Mine Train at Six Flags over Mid-America that is no longer there. It is now at Magic Springs, and this past summer I took a trip down there for the sole purpose of riding that coaster since it was my first.

I have reposted this thread because the last thread on this was closed by Mr. Wood (Hey, I work in Akron!) and linked to a poll thread that was closed and I could not post in it. I tried searching for "first coaster" as suggested and got this: "The following words are either very common, too long, or too short and were not included in your search: first" and ended up with 5000 search results for coaster! I WILL NOT look through 5000 threads to find the one I am looking for so here it is.

First coaster:
Jack Rabbit at Idora Park~Defunct
First steel:
Corkscrew at Geauga Lake~Defunct
First stand up:
King Cobra at Kings Island~Defunct
First suspended:
Big Bad Wolf at Busch Gardens, Williamsburg~Still thrilling
First inverted:
Raptor at Cedar Point~Still thrilling

Two out of five still standing isn't bad. Is it? So, am I lucky enough to get some rides in before these coasters closed or do I predict the future of things to come? Any guesses on when Big Bad Wolf will close?:confused:

P.S. Mr. Wood,
Send me your pay pal account or e mail and I will send you your dime.;)



Hello,

Here are my first roller coasters ever:
First roller coaster ever: Incredible Hulk Coaster (IOA)
First inverted roller coaster: Dueling Dragons (IOA)
First dive coaster: Sheikra (Bush Gardens Tampa)

I was a bit nervous when I rode my first coaster, called The Incredible Hulk Coaster, because I have never ridden anything like a coaster.
The launch and the Zero-G-Roll on Hulk were incredible!
I was 15 years old when I rode them.

^Actually, Batman is suspended.

Quote: Sixflags.com/greatadventure

Batman the Ride puts you in the role of the Caped Crusader. Soar over Gotham City with the track and sky above, and nothing but air below your dangling feet. This suspended outside-looping roller coaster includes five head-over-heels experiences and a zero-gravity roll.



I guess your right about Medusa, though.
