    Psyké Underground (Walibi Belgium), when it was known as Turbine then. I believe it was also my first Schwarzkopf. The launch felt powerful and so did the looping! Too bad they switched for a fairly lacklustre LIM system since :(

    Batman and Robin the Chiller at SF Great Adventure.
    1998, I was 10 years old and that was one of the first 10 coasters I've ever been on. That was my first time at a big park, before hand was just the Jet Star and that looping coaster at Seaside Heights. My parents kinda threw me right into this hobby :)

    Fun ride btw especially later on when lines were near nothing and they went to lap bars

    I remember the launch on The Chiller felt pretty intense, too!

    Yet another to Rock n Roller Coaster, but I was too young to actively enjoy it. The first one I really did experience was Motocoaster at Darien Lake, and after that was Stormrunner.

    Rita at Alton! Remember loving the thing when I first came off it in September 2013 (I actually thought it was Alton's best at the time!) but then I slowly went off it as it gradually got rougher to the point where it is now my 2nd least favourite coaster... the launch is still quite good, though.
