Thread: What was your first Coaster Ride?

  1. #1
    My first roller coaster ride was unforgettable! The Loch Ness Monster addicted me on that warm May day so long ago! Which coaster made you the addict you are today?
    I've done some awesome things
    <BR>in my life and only found one thing
    <BR>greater than a roller coaster ride...
    <BR>that would be knowing Jesus!

    Mine was Racer at Kennywood. I was so terrified it wasn't funny. After the first drop, I loved it. Now, I can't get enough of it! Aaahhh...the memories.

    My first ride was the Mindbender at Six Flags Over Georgia. It's still in my top twenty favorite rides. The helix has 5 g's! Awesome coaster!

    Roller koasters are beautiful pieces of art. The movement of the trains is my anime. The screams are music to my ears.

    My first ride was Super Dooper Looper at Hershey Park, but the one that got me addicted was also the Loch Ness Monster Icky, but I don't have quite the same interest as Jesus as you do.

    My first coaster was the Mister Twister at Elitch Gardens in Denver in 1979. One of the best coasters I have ever ridden. It is a shame that it no longer exists. I know Knoebels built one based on the blue print but it was modified and it is not the same ride.

    My first was a pretty intense one....

    Mine was on Runaway Mine Train at SFOT. That final drop seems huge when your 6.

    Demon at Six Flags Great America twice followed by American Eagle. Eagles drop was so big back then, now it seems to have shrunk very much

    Here's an interesting one:
    <BR>Dragon Mountain at Marineland in Niagara Falls, Canada.
    <BR>It was the second tallest looping coaster in the world at the time, right after Viper. I was 8. I was scared shootless.
    <BR>As soon as I got home, i started drawing up my own incredible design. Not surprisingly, it looked almost EXACTLY like Dragon Mountain.
    <BR>Ive been obsessed ever since.

    The Deamon at Paramount's Great America. I cried up the lift and down the drop and never stoped loven coasters afterwards.

    Mine was Zipper Dipper at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, and then it was the Rollercoaster at Blackpool Pleasure Beach but my first ever coaster that I went on with an inversion in it was Rock 'n' Rollercoaster at Disney MGM Studios, Florida.
