It was Montezoomers revenge in Knotts berry farm, i was about 12 and we went on it non stop for an hour (you know getting off running around, getting back on kinda thing!)

I got the bug from there and the rest is history!


Aaaw good old Knott's. I have a lot of memories from that place. That ride is really good!

I believe my first rollercoaster was the Buffalo at AA, and my first invertion was Twin Looper. Had me crying, until mid loop while my tears quickly transfered to tears of joy and laughter!

Memories, memories, memories :sadblink: Growing up sucks!

:-k Think my first roller coaster was corkie i was about 7 so the coaster seemed very big. I didnt like going up the hill as it was quite a windy day and i swear we were rocking slightly. But once we started the drop i loved it.

Second coaster was nemmie, i ran straight from corkie ( i am talking about the same day) but when i got there i ran straight to the fence and just as i put my hands on the fence, the fence by the first helix corner nemesis came thundering past. It really scared me as i hadnt seen it go round before. Anyway i checked my height and i was just height enough. As me and my friends inside the station, they all chickened out and said they were going to go back, so they did i was going to go with them but this random guy said he would give me a tenner if i went on it so sat by him and loved the whole ride. I was calling my friends pussys for days. And i never did get that tenner.

Definitely! :shock:

Errr I started early, went on loads of kiddie coasters which I can't remember...but the first one I do remember was the Mini Apple at Alton Towers. My, wasn't I proud when I came off that - even gloated to my little brother who was too scared :lol: That was followed by Steeplechase in PBB, my first BIG coaster at AT being Oblivion in 1999. :)

:twisted: :P

The first rollercoaster I remember was Oblivion when I was 12, but I've been told that I went on the Runaway Mine Train and whatever The Beastie used to be when I was 3 or something.

My first inverster was Corkscrew.
Me? Adrenaline junkie? Never *whistles and stares at ceiling*

RMT @ Chessie when I was about 8. Yeah, I know, it's not a coaster.....
so it would have been Vampire when I was 12-13ish. Scared the [email protected] outta me. Until, that is, I got to Alton (not till I was 17!) and legged it straight towards Nemmie.
I've never looked back.

The first ever looper coaster was Klondike at Drayton Manor when I was about 9 or 10 years old, but the first small kiddie coaster was Mini Apple (Drayton Manor) when I was very young, think about 6 or 7 years old.

The first biggest coaster was Shockwave also at Drayton Manor when I was 12, I screamed "sh*t!" at the drop but gone silent for the rest of the ride lol cos I started to like it as soon as lol it was my very first experience on a big ride (Shockwave) with big loop, twists etc.

The first inverted coaster was Nemesis at Alton Towers when I was also 12, I can't remember what it was like when I rode Nemesis when I was 12, it felt like it was only for a second, like everything was blurred, can't really remember going on the twists, loop and turns, all I can remember was going on the first drop and when arriving at the end of the ride, looking pale! lol.

I was really nervous before going on big rides but now I love them for life :)
