I HATE SNOW!!! I am boycotting snow, I refuse to have fun in it.
I rode Nitro at the Nitro First Blast Campout, the first time it was opened to the public on April 6th 2001.
Of course, thats the public....I'm sure designers, staff, and many people rode it before I did!
I went for the first rides on XF at the commercial shoot. It was awesome!
Well, on May 15th, 1999 I came 3 hours early for S:ROS... but, I definitly wasn't the only one. However, everybody was gathered around the fountain waiting for the opening cermonies, where everybody was held back... however, we managed to find away around all the gates and radio stations and ended getting right in front of the ride... the first ones! A security gueard said it was OK to stay there.. and we were the only ones there in front of the ride for about an hour. Than 3 other people managed to make it as far as us. OMG I couldn't beleive the ride was right in front of me... nonetheless be on the first ride to the public (front seat baby!)
.... However.... after the fireworks went off 3 hours later... came the massive rampage, everybody was stopped behind us, HOWEVER, the special "VIP" people had to come through.... which consitsted of about 300 people!! People were so pissed, and so was I... but what are ya gonna do....
We ended up waiting around an hour (a few breakdowns occured) even though we were essentially "first"... darn, I was looking forward to the 1st ride. Later in the day, around 4:00 or so, the line was only about 45 min and it would have been better if I hadn't even come really early in the first place. Oh well, that first ride was one hell of a ride near the back.. and lets not forget about the last (insane) bunny hop before the trim was installed.... *droooool*.....
I was on the first train of Media for Son of Beast. I'll never forget that ride. I almost wished they had keeped the jerk at the top of the second hill. IT WAS WICKED. Too much for the general public though. You guys would've loved to ride it in it's origonal form. Hey I just noticed something. I've done something Sean F. hasn't. :)
It's his turn to feast, when you ride the Son of Beast.

Never been the first, we were there for the first operating day of Cheetah! We (ACE/FLCC) were also *supposed* to open DBH, but they went ahead and had a "soft" opening on the Wednesday prior...:(
On the other side of the coin, I DID get the Last Ride on Viper at SFoG, which really should strike somewhere for the third time, provided SF doesn't let it rust to pieces in some god-awful "boneyard"...
I was one of the first people on Test Track at Epcot and on Star Tours at MGM
I also intend on crushing all the kids that will be at opening day for SfoG's Superman. Muhahahaha

I was also on Dragon's first train at it's "Grand Opening," a couple of weeks after it opened to the public, but the Governor of Iowa was there for the opening and he was on the same train as I was. He was in the front seat and I was near the back.
Also, I rode Shivering Timbers a couple weeks after it opened; Millennium Force about a week after its opening and Mamba on its third day . Aren't you glad you asked?
