My first was Batman the Ride (SFOMA/SFSTL) in 1995. I loved it and is still one of the better B&Ms in my eyes.

My second was Patriot (WOF) in 2007. Not quite as good but I still like it better than some others (Alpengeist, Raptor due to head banging)

My first floorless was Superman Krypton Coaster (SFFT) in 2011. One of my favorite B&Ms and by far my favorite floorless (excluding dive coasters).

My first B&M hyper was Diamondback (KI) in 2011. My first disappointment with them.

My first B&M stand up was Mantis (CP) in 2012. The first B&M I hated; however, Rougarou is a huge improvement (still not one of their best in my opinion).

My first B&M sit down was Wildfire (SDC) in 2013. Among my favorite B&Ms.

My first B&M flying coaster was Tatsu (SFMM) in 2013. Not a bad coaster by anymeans, It's not for me and neither are the Vekoma flying dutchmans to be fair.

My first B&M dive coaster was Griffon (BGW) in 2014. One of my favorite B&Ms.

My first B&M winged coaster was Gatekeeper (CP) in 2015. It's okay, Cedar Point has yet to have a B&M that I really like, but that's fine because they have my #1 and #2 favorite Intamin coasters and 2 of my favorite Arrow coasters.

Of you want to be really, really technical, then it was Shockwave at SFMM.

 

Technically, that is an Intamin, not B&M.

It looks like a B&M, it was designed by B&M, to me it's a B&M.

 

If we want to be really technical, it was actually designed by B&M, built by Giovanola, and sold to Intamin.

It was designed by Intamin and subcontracted to Giovanola and opened in 1986. B&M was founded in 1988. It doesn't matter who Walter & Claude worked for at the time since B&M was not in existence yet. It's manufacturer is still Intamin.

My first B&M was Silver Bullet at Knott's. I still remember the first time I rode it because that was the ride that made me a coaster enthusiast. It'll always have a special place in my heart for that reason, despite all the hate it gets usually for not being intense.
