    Well... since this topic came up again, I guess I'll make my comment

    My first adult coaster was Mind Bender at at SFOG, I think my first coaster might have been Lil' Rock n' rollercoaster at Opryland. I was too scared to even go on Scooby Doo at Carowinds lol

    EDIT: Actually I had forgotten, but I think Space Mtn (DWO) was my first adult coaster. Scared me to death! I didn't want to ever ride that thing again. lol How times have changed

    I remember going on the Scooby Doo coaster at Carowinds when I was 7 years old, and being terrified. I got off the ride, and ran right back on. I was hooked.

    My first big coaster ride was on Loch Ness Monster the same summer I first rode Scooby Doo.

    I think I was 5, the year was 1984. It was the Comet at HP. I loved it from the beginning. It was the only coaster I was tall enough for at the time. I believe it had a 42" requirement, and the looper was 48". I was somewhere in between. I remember we went to BGW that same year, it was the year that the BBW opened, if memory serves, I couldn't ride that or the Loch Ness monster. I was too short for either.

    The Thriller at Euclid Beach, age 7 , they had no height restrictions back then. Sometimes, when I think about it, I don't know how some us survived those rides.

    My first coaster of the 52 I've been on in 3 continents was Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at Disneyland, when I was 1 year and 9 months old. I don't remember it, but my dad says I was really scared and said afterwards: "I don't want to go on any more rides with the word mountain in them."

    WDW's Space Mountain, 1974. I was 4 and it scared the hell out of me. My Grandmother took me on it, and she says that all I said the whole ride was, "I want my Mommmmmy...Mommmmmmy!!!"

    It wasn't until 1980, when I rode the Loch Ness Monster at "The Old Country" that I was hooked for life.

    First coaster ride for me was a steel wild mouse type Called the Bavarian Beetle at Kinds Island (no Paramount's then) in the mid-70's. I'm not sure the exact year, but it was the last year they had that coaster before tearing it down. It was also the year before they built the "Screamin Demon" a.k.a. the worlds lamest looping coaster.

    I also rode the Racer later that day, and that was when I was hooked for life.

    When you start typing better and/or get a new keyboard, you'll see that sig change.

    Obviously YOU did not read through the entire thread.

    [url]http://www.thrillnetwork.com/boards/showthread.php?s=&threadid=248&perpage=15&pagenumber=15[/url] shows what my first coaster was. Next time, do a little research before you flame.

    And speaking of a life, if it wasn't for working third shift this month, I definitely would have one.

    First coaster for me:

    Rollercoaster at Western Washington Fair Grounds. I was six, and I loved it. However, coasters with bigger drops scared the crap out of me.
