How old were you when you rode your first proper coaster?

13 with Air, then the next day I also did Nemesis

If you count Thi3teen (or whatever it is) then I was 12. ;)

Big thunder mountain at the age of 4 at Disneyland Paris :D the most emotional coaster for me now, first big coaster with inversions was mumbo jumbo on opening day (I didn't go on any looping coasters til I was 7 as my dad thought I was too thin :lol I did go on Sonic somewhere around 2008 as well as steeplechase and all the woodies at blackpool (basically went on any coaster I was tall enough for)

I was three. And The Stinger at Paulton's Park. If you don't count that then a few years later I returned for Cobra.

First complete experience (i.e. themed) was Vampire at Chessington, the ride that got me into theme parks in the first place! Haha!

First inverting was Space Mountain: Mission 2 at DLP.

I actually think it was The Corkscrew when I was 8... When I got off I had caught the coaster bug, and a headache.

I think I was 7 when I was tall enough to ride the corkscrew... And get bruised ears from the restraints hahaha... My head didn't clear them at all! I was still in primary school when I got on nemesis and very very scared!

I was also 7 and Corkscrew was one of the first rides I went on. On the same visit I also went on The Beast (Which no one ever mentions on here for some reason) and The Black hole, if my memory serves me correctly.

Nobody remembers the beast haha. I went on that before corkscrew but wasn't sure if it would count as a proper rollercoaster, fun, but no inversions or proper restraints hahaha

I loved the beast and black hole but my fav short lived ride was the thunder looper which I would run round to ride again.

I was 6 when I went on Nemesis so I've been told! I remember wearing my big school shoes so I was just tall enough. I was desperate to go on as I had an older brother, I was very jealous!

A 6 year old that was over 1.4m, that's impressive. My sisters 7 and tall for her age, just passing 1.2m now ready for Sonic and Th13teen. You must be very tall indeed

My school shoes had quite a big chunky heel on and I was always the tallest in the class (much to my misery!) But the age came from my mum so could have been around 6/7 :lol

I definitely wasn't actually 1.4, with the shoes I only just hit 1.4. This was back in 1998 so I'm going on my mothers word! I remember Oblivion being rather new but like I said this is what my mother has claimed, maybe she's mad :lol
