What was your first coaster with inversions?


Recommended Posts

First Looper: Canobie Corkscrew

First GOOD Looper: Montu

First Hyper: SROS @ SFNE

First Suspended: Ninja @ SFMM

First Stand-Up: Riddler's Revenge

 

By the way, there is some INSANE airtime on the Yankee Cannonball.

Also, there is a waterslide with a drop taller than anything at Canobie Lake.

My first was Chang. I was surprisingly calm and relaxed on the ride. I really loved the pop of airtime between the inclined loop and the turn up to the MCBR.

The only real coaster I had been on before that was Twisted Twins.

My first looping coaster was the one in the picture below, but when I rode it, it was a light blue color, it was located at Six Flags St. Louis, and it was called the Jetscream... although it was a fun coaster, it didn't last long at all before it was removed to make room for a silly dance club, then it became the station for Batman the Ride...

Revolution, in 1976. I was 10. Scared the pee outa me.

 

(Remember the theme song? "It'll knock your little socks flat off!")

 

(There was a small observation deck under the loop, VERY close. It had a sign that said, "Watch out for flying socks!" Just remembered that while singing the song.)

 

Here's a pic from 1979:

"The turn of the century" (now significantly modified and renamed "The Demon") at Marriots Great America (now Paramounts Great America) in Santa Clara, CA. I rode it in 1976, the year it opened. I'm not really sure that the addition of vertical loops to "The Demon" was necessarily an improvement. I liked "Willard's Wizzer" more though. I still miss that ride. It was awesome. They also used to have this three-armed ferris wheel type ride (I forget the name of it) that was really cool. I miss that one too.

REVOLUTION at sfmm

 

Yes, May 10th 1976. When it was called "The Great American Revolution"

I was 9 years old.

 

No shoulder restraints, no seat belts. Just lap bars... as God himself intended it to be.
