I'm always going to remember my first ride on Millennium Force. For me it was the first coaster of the 2000 season, first hyper, first Intamin. I'd be hard pressed to forget the few seconds while you're at the top. I looked out into the bay, and saw a huge barge which looked the size of a dinky toy. I looked at my friend, then swore a couple of times. When we crested the top, I put my hands up, and acheived inner peace. I then screamed my lungs out, out of pure joy, for the next few minutes. Pure bliss :) -------------

I always remember my first coaster ever the Whizzer at SFGAm. And the first inverted coaster ever Batman at SFGAm. My first hyper Raging Bull And of course Millennium Force, the Force gave me an adrenline rush greater than any coaster before it.

I went going to Busch Gardens Tamp in 1993, I was 7 and had never been on a coaster. I was scared to go on the Python. My dad convinced me to go on and I loved every second of it. Kumba had just opened up and I remember being mad because I was too short to go on it. ------------- SFNE 2001 Hopefully I'll have all the fun I can STAND!
I'll never forget my first ride on the "Great Bear" at Hershey. It was my first B&M inverted and my first coaster that did more than just a loop. Wow, I remember getting off and getting right back in line. My first B&M is definitely one I'll always remember.
I will allways remember my first roller coaster ride; The American Eagle. I was in the 2nd grade and I was so scared. However that led to what I am today. I had no clue... My favorite memorable experience though has to be my ride on Millennium Force. I will never forget the ride on America's Tallest and Fastest coaster. It was such a great time.... Well, those are my favorite. ------------- "4 Seats are better than 2"
I'll never forget two expiences i had. One, is my first ride on a floorless coaster, medusa. I've never felt so much adrenaline in my body! Another isn't good but ill never forget it. I was on that crappy 'heartline' Viper at sfgadv. At the top of the lift, right before the drop they had a trim because of the speed from coming off the lift. I rode it early in the morning, and they never opened the trim (I dont know how - I would have tested it). Anyway i was on the first train and when i hit the drop, the trim stalled it and the train went like 15 mph, and when we got to the 1st heartline, it got stuck up there for about 10 seconds, then just drifted down. I felt the blood rush to my head, and thought 'O god'.They closed the ride to see what was wrong with the trim. I try to avoid it today but once and a while its ok.
Yes, MF was memorable. but I personally will never forget the Screamin' Demon (now Thunderbolt Express at Camden Park). It was my first looper back in '82. ------------- www.angelfire.com/oh4/tk173 First rule of Stormtroopers: Pee BEFORE you put on the uniform!
Ok,, I used to be terrified of that lil carnival ride,, the dragon thing,, but thats a joke.. Now,, when like 14 years ago,, or somethin,, I dunno, I was 6 or 7,, I rode the Whizzer,, at my home park, SFGA,, OK,, those turns scared me to death! I cried the whole time,, but the turns at the end made me laugh... My first looping roller coaster, I was with my friends and my brother,, they went on the Demon,, (SFGA) and we acted like we werent scared, that drop scared me ! but now,, im obsessed with roller coasters,, AMERICAN EAGLE ROCKS! (red train!)
My first roller coaster was Thunder Mountain Railroad. My first looping coaster was Vortex at PKI. And probably the most memorable ride I will ever have is the time I got to ride Batman at night ERT. We got stuck at the top of the lift hill on Friday the 14th with a full moon. Hey it was close enough to have been Friday the 13th.
