I know a lot of people out there in the coaster world do not consider EXT the first stand-up coaster (even though it was), I think that it is interesting that Wiki has a thought on said topic. ;)
(edited to add winkies so that people know I am joking)

Keep your head high and the coaster's higher.
Wikipedia is a useful guide, but it is anything but gospel.
The more credible information would be from rcdb.
In regards to "first in opperation" EXT was the first in North America (though that was only for the 1983 season) but Standing & Loop Coaster was the first in the world.

... on this or any other subject.
Me, if I had the chance to go back in time to ride this...meh, I'd give it a credit lap - then I'd park my silly butt in line for Zinger for the remainder of the day... :)
Almost forgot: ;)
And Eric, even though I am NOT a huge fan of the stand-up gimmick, I still think only two of the B&M crop could compete with KC...Paramount had a 1-in-3 chance of removing the WRONG Togo stand-up coaster...but pulled it off anyway... ;)
