What coaster will you always remember?? Your first coaster? My answer is my second hyper(steel force).

Mine has to be my first upside down coaster.
The good ol' Tidal Wave at SFGAm.
I really miss that ride, and I would love to go on it again. Wherever it is.

I hope they rename the other new one another Tidal wave or something *** This post was edited by kcies13-SFGAm on 2/15/2001. ***

It's down at SFoG, and is now known as the Viper.

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.

Get wrapped in the coils of Viper at SFGAm.

The one coaster I will always remember is The Beast. It may not have been my first coaster ever, or even second, but it's amazing course has given me more great rides than I can remember.

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.

Hopefully I'll have all the fun I can STAND!

I will always remember my first real rollercoaster ride which was the Whizzer when I was 3 or 4. I will also remember my first looping coaster which was Demon when I was 5.

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.

Oh yeah, it was Looping Star at the LA County Fair.

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.

Steel Phantom. Now that it is gone, it is even more important to remember this legendary monster forever.

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.

I will always remember my first hyper. It was the Raging Bull

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.

Squeezing my fat rear-end into the Scooby Doo Ghoaster Coaster. That alone threw off their capacity for all of June 2000!

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.
