First kiddie coaster was in a local park By the Fresno Zoo around 1964. My first real coaster that I can remember was the Big Dipper at SCBB around 1966. It scared the heck out of me. I was riding with my Dad and he pulled the lap bar down tight for him, but me being 6 or 7 at the time left a lot of room. I remember sliding all over the place.

First looping coaster was Montezuma's Revenge at KBF in about 1978.

I'm 35.


My first coaster was when I was 10 (I was terrified of coasters before that), and it was Runaway Mine Train at SFGAdv.


My first looping coaster was Lightning Loops at SFGAdv, which was terrifying to me (when I was 12), simply because it shook as you were climbing the stairs to the platform. Just getting the nerve to climb those stairs was harder than getting the nerve to ride!

Aww... I can't vote... I'm 11 but I will be 12 in a month! YAY! Can't wait to be able to vote on this.


My first was the small powered coaster at American Adventures when I was about 3. I rode the mine train at SFOG when I was 4. I rode my first "big" coaster when I was 7: The Great American Screem Machine!

My First Coaster was the Whizzer at Great America in Santa Clara... It was the only time I ever rode it as it was torn out during the offseason for the splash boats soon to follow...



I enjoyed that ride, and it is my cousins, well was, his favorite ride at the park


I don't think he knows that Six Flags Great America still has theirs, or he would probably try to find a way there, I will have to tell him
