Do you remember the first time?

Postby LionOfNarnia » Wed Jun 22, 2011 9:02 pm

What do you remember of the first time you ever rode a REAL rollercoaster?

How old were you, why were you there, what was it, what did you feel before, during & after?

.......................................................................................

For me it was a ride called "The Wild Mouse" during a family holiday to a Butlins (Butlitz!) holiday camp at Pwllheli (Wales), I was about 10 years old. As I was queueing I was scared that my folks would see me and drag me out of the line. The ride wasn't anywhere near as scary as it looked from the ground but afterwards I was SO proud that I'd done something Mum & Dad frowned upon.

I found this BBC article about peoples recollections of this camp, there are some special memories there

Good question
What do you remember of the first time you ever rode a REAL rollercoaster?
Well my first coaster was Flying Fish at Thorpe Park.

I think I was about 5 or 6 at the time,

Their was no real reason why we went their on that day. (but their never really is a reason).

Slight nervouse in the queue line because I did not know what to expect.

Slightly proud because it was my first coaster.

At the end I was just proud that I went on it.
(If it was not for that day I might not off started this forum and got a passion for Theme Parks and Coasters)

Probally Vampire in Chessigton World of Adventures, round about 8 I would say. Scared the shit out of me, and promised myself I would never go on a roller coaster again. Thank god I broke that promise half a year later! :coaster4

First inversion was on Gauntlet, Camelot. I remember being really nervous in the queue and not wanting go on it due to the loop. I ended up loving it.

Though it was mainly Kumali, This coaster also helped me get into coasters.
