I was seven years old, in the second grade. Magnum XL-200, my first hypercoaster, was also my first rollercoaster. I didn't know what to expect, having never been on a rollercoaster before. I was very pleased, and have never been the same. ------------- Dictate a memo to myself - Try to find if I'm the only one in complete health Consult contemporaries if there's some to see There really isn't anyone who's in my league...
Apollo's Chariot. It was this year. I hated heights(still do!), and I had to close my eyes going up the lift because I was so scared....:) ----------------- Ricochet: Bouncing to you in 2002, Only at King's Dominion!
S:ROS @ SFDL. All I knew to expect was to go really fast and to spend a lot of time hovering in my seat. I loved it so much I'm gonna head back to DL next year. ----------------- Acrophobia--High Alititude Attitude
My first hyper was Magnum, the year it opened. I was 11. I was just getting to the point where I would ride everything, and when I rode Magnum, I was convinced I could ride anything. I absolutely loved it. I haven't been on too many other hypers (Only S:ROS at SFDL, Steel Phantom (if you count it), Nitro, and Millennium Force), but I started on them early. :) Jman ----------------- Jman Webmaster: Gravibulb Coasters http://balder.prohosting.com/gravbulb/coasters/

mine was Magnum XL 200 just like everyone else. I was 11 years old, i was so scared i literely peed my pants going up...it was the sweetest thing in the world, since then i have been on, Apollos chariot, Millennium force, goliath, SOB, Steel Force, and superman and NE. they are all great.
I live in Toronto, and it's home park is PCW. All the coaster they got is a sorry little 1995 Vekoma SLC, a super short arrow suspended, a super rough TOGO standup, and 2 woodies... Plus a 1987 bommerang! Sad...
I wish I have the chance to ride a hypercoaster...
Goliath was the first and only one for me so far. That is, until I get a chance to ride Steel Force, Superman: ROS and Nitro when I head back for the Phoenix Phall Phunfest in October! :) I thought Goliath was an awesome coaster, still one of the best in California. They've trimmed it something awful, but it still gives an intense ride. -----------------
My first hyper was Mamba followed shortly there after by Magnum. Angela, who has an extreme fear of heights will ride her first hyper hopefully 2 weeks from today should be desperado, followed by Manhattan express( kind of a hyper) and a few days later Goliath and hopefully X (we hope). ----------------- Just a couple of G-force junkies!
