This past summer when the final breaks stopped the train on Shivering Timbers on my first ride. I was shocked, amazed, flabberghasted, and babbling like an idiot at how awesome that ride was. I realized that coaster perfection has been achieved, and I had just experienced it. Pure coaster bliss. And the best part... a 10 minute wait at the most, usually a walk-on all afternoon!! I would wait gladly 2 hours or more for a coaster experience this good, too bad it is so far away from California :( .
My number two is a draw. MF first time, MF in the rain, or MF front seat (after waiting in the station for an hour since it broke down). Its a close one, but front might be a little bit better, then first time. My heart was going a mile a minute, while I was thinking "I'm about to ride on the fastest and tallest ride in the US."
------------- Top 3: 1. Millenium Force 2. Raptor 3. Batman: the Ride
My first ever ride on Son of Beast! I was screaming in happiness during the ride so much I didn't have a voice after I got off of it. Today, Son of Beast is still my favorite ride even overpassing Millennium Force.
Mine was bringing back into the station a 4 ft. long weed I snagged on a ride on Gold Rusher. Second on my list was finding out that the liquid coming form the seat in front of me on Viper's corkscrew was indeed water and not puke.
Hmmmmm This is a tough one but I will try.... First ride on Millenium Force (of course), first ride on Shivering Timbers in '99 (I had been too scared to ride it in '98, heheheh), ride on Hulk (my first BIG steel coaster), and Ice Dragon--as it was my first Inverted and I had no idea what to expect!
Lots of great moments, ones that come to mind are my first ride on Millennium Force opening day in the front seat, first time on Batman: The Ride at Great America, and riding the Raging Bull for the first time, first Raptor and Montu too... I guess theres nothing quite like your first ride on a coaster you've never experienced!
I'd have to say my first ride on Twister at Knoebels. I watched it being built for 8 months and just wondering where this track was going and which way the car was going there. Finally in late July last year I took my first ride on it. The bad part was waiting 2 hours for the next ride.
