My first coaster that I can remember was Dracor at Santa's Village. I was about 2 years old. Since Dracor is so small I like to refer to my first "big" coaster as the Whizzer. I was 4 years old at the time.
My first coaster was the Jackrabbit at Kennywood park. I was four years old at the time and I remember that I was too small to ride the racer, but just big enough for the rabbit. I can still remember going up the lift for the first time.

My first was a portable billed as "the world's largest portable roller coaster" at the Soldier's and Sailor's Reunion in Salem Illinois. It was actually a portable steel kiddie coaster of perhaps slightly larger that average size for such a coaster.
My second was the Wild Mouse at Pontchartrain Beach, a wooden wild mouse.
You guys might laugh at this, but it was the Little dipper at the Memphis Kiddie Park, in Ohio. =o) My First Actual Multi Milliondollar costing rollercoaster, was Iron Dragon At Cedar Point. =o) ----------------- "Past this point of no return your only choice is freeze or burn." -Merlin
My first was (I forgot the name) at the now defunct Hammell's Park many years ago. However, it was a special moment for me this summer when I went to Branson USA and rode it (it was moved).....it was a cool moment in my coaster life. ----------------- "There ain't nothing worse'n when a woman gets pushy." -Ferris Layman, The Diviners
