Vampire at Chessington

Colossus at Thorpe Park - so for my first inverting rollercoaster, I went as extreme as you can currently go! (Although I don't think I knew that at the time)

Mine was probably the 'dubious' credit of the Snails at Joyland Gt. Yarmouth, some say it is, some say it isn't.

Myself on said ride many years later

Obviously RCDb disagrees with this, however, which would mean that my first coaster was the Big Apple at Alton Towers (now operating, funnily enough,at Pleasure Beach Great Yarmouth). My first 'proper' coaster was Klondike Gold Mine at Drayton Manor, though I probably didn't become a fully fledged enthusiast until experiencing the (then called) Dueling Dragon coasters at Universal Islands of Adventure is 2005. I've never looked back since. :)

My one was the scenic railway at Dreamland in Margate for me. Yeah not the white knucle ride that you get today but definitely not too shaby for being my first coaster ride.

I was just 4 years of age when I had my first roller coaster ride. It was the little kiddies coaster at Wicksteed Park... and I've been hooked ever since!

Colossus at Thorpe Park back in 2001 was my first 'proper' rollercoaster. Was intimidated to say the least considering it was a world record breaker (at the time, no idea about now) and also my first.

I take back what I said previously. Caterpillar Capers now lives on at my favourite childhood park over at Gulliver's World  :)

Shame I can't ride it on my own without looking like a predator  :(
