Recommended Posts

What were your first coasters from any coaster manufacturers?




Intamin - Jr. Gemini (first coaster)

B&M - Raptor

Vekoma - Woodstock Express (CP)

Arrow - SFOT Mine Train and Mini Mine Train (I don't know which one was first) - THIS IS WRONG - it is Iron Dragon.

Schwarzkopf - Shockwave (SFOT)

Giovanola - Titan

Premier Rides - Runaway Mountain (SFOT)

Chance - Probably the SFOT Canyon Blaster

Morgan - Probably Wild Thing

Dinn - Probably Mean Streak, but there is a chance it could be the old Texas Giant

CCI - Either Shivering Timbers, Zach's Zoomer , Cyclops or Zeus - Not sure which of them was first

RCCA - Son of Beast (no loop)

Gravity Group - Hades (original)

GCI - Renegade
