I am 23 & for one pretty amazed that the majority of members on here are 12-15yrs old. Jeezus. haha


My first roller coaster was the LITTLE DIPPER when I was very young prob around 5-7 at its original home, kiddieland - Melrose Park, IL. I am very thankful that SFGAm has it now so I can enjoy my first coaster (practically) anytime I want. I love my park with an extreme passion & I gained another world of respect with the decision they made to bring in LD!!

No option under 12?

I was 2 when I rode my first coaster, Barnstormer at Magic Kingdom. Scared the absolute shizz out of me. Didn't ride another coaster till I was 6 on a trip to Australia, went on the wooden wild mouse at Aussie World. Bad idea. That thing put me off coasters till I was 10 when I rode Spingear at Sega Republic in Dubai, when I finally got over my fear.

So you could call Spingear my first coaster that didnt leave me scarred for years.


I am now 12 years old. I fully got into coasters when I moved to Australia a year ago, which sucks as now that I'm here I only have limited coasters to ride, while when I was younger I travelled to New Jersey, Florida, LA, Toronto and many other places with awesome coasters, but I wasnt interested back then.

Luckily this year I'll be travelling to UK and maybe Florida and I'm planning to ride as many coasters as possible.

I'm sure that there was a kids' metal coaster available to me,

at my local annual fair (the PNE) when it came by, every year.


But I would like to think - the first honest roller coaster

I ever rode, enjoyed and wanted to ride again?


The Matterhorn at Disneyland - I was ten - it was Easter, 1963.


Not to mention the rest of the New TomorrowLand,

(Monorail & Submarine) having only opened

a few years earlier, in 1959.


Not only that - but it was me and my mom riding together.

Both of us, not really understanding it was a true coaster

we were riding on.


No. To us, we were riding on A Disney Adventure.

My first "big" coaster was Silver Comet at Martin's Fantasy Island summer of 2000 or 2001. I was 8 or 9. Unfortunately the photos don't have a date stamp.


Edit: I'm 20 at the time of this posting.
