My first was oblivion...a mere 10 months ago. A very late starter you may say but my family werent into the theme-amusement park thing when i was a kid and when you live in Scotland there arent too many parks around.
Was fine about it till we got to the overhang..then I was not enamoured at all and wanted off....ah well too late..weeeeeeeeeee!... that was fun..NEXT!
Step up...Nemmie....Oh boy was I not wantin to go near this thing....the queue was 2 hours long so I had ever loop turn and roll photographically indented in my mind....I got on.....then byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.....what a ride.....and hasnt been beaten since.
Oblivion was just a mere warm up for the delights of the ride ahead. :)
my very first coaster was a kiddie coaster at great yarmouth pleasure beach. It looked really fun back then, but it had loads of sharp turns and i felt like I was going to fall out! Then at legoland my dad dragged me on the rollercoaster there, I was really scared but I loved it! my first invertered coaster was Shockwave at DMP. I was not very good with big rides then, and was worried the day before we went, Shockwave was the last ride i went on and it was the most exhilirating thing I had ever done. It was that ride that started my love for coasters.
Great Topic but sadly I really don't remember> I remember going to Blackpool in 1988 when I was 8 - I'm guessing it would have been then. Failing that I went to Meli Park in Belgium in April 1991 and also definately rode the Corkscrew in July 1991 at the ripe age of 11. In 1992 I visited Thorpe and Windsor Safari park.. so would have been on a coaster by then!
Scary to think my first coaster wasn't even the towers!
Well i started off by going on the RMT at american adventure and it scared me to hell. I then went on the mine train at AT and coasters like the buffalo coaster at Drayton Manor. My first big log flume was when i was 8 and i went to Austrailia. I went on the Wild Wild West and loved it, i then went on Stormforce. I hope to go on Jurrasic park in Florida! My first big rollercoaster was on Air! Unfortunately i haven't plucked up the courage to go on Nemesis, Rita or Oblivion :cry:
mine was corkscrew when i was eight, that was my first proper one, coz i had been on stuff like baby apple and roka dragon roller coaster an baby ones like that you know baby bob, lil monster coaster, ok i'll stop i think i'm going mad
