Mine was Ye Olde Corky. With out Corky I dont think I would have survived being 1.3m. It killed me not being tall enough for Nemesis, Oblivion and Air. (Although I did manage to sneak onto Ripsaw at 1.3m, that was fun). Obviously it was also my first coaster with an inversion.
First coaster at Thorpe was Colossus.
And my first AT Big 3 (Air, Bliv, Nem) coaster was Nemesis. I spent the whole way round holding tightly onto my harness, but never chickened out (Never chickened out on a ride at all now that I think about it)

Mine was Missile at American Adventure. What a way to start, with a good ol' Vekoma Boomerang? I really, really miss that park; I lived nearby and went every year. Their flume was awesome.
After Missile, it was Corky and Black Hole, which I did on the same visit. They all live in a very special place in my heart. :love:

My first real coaster was Rita.

My first big thrill was the Smiler. I am quite new on the roller coaster scene.

The Scenic Railway at Dreamland. I was so scared of roller coasters back then. I remember queueing with my parents and then leaving the queue because I didn't want to go on it. I overcame that fear eventually though, and shortly after that would have been the Looping Star (also at Dreamland). Man that thing gave you a headache...probably not as much as Colossus though!
