Your first, favourite and least favourite coaster in each country/US state you've visited

Hi guys. As I saw that my topic "Your first, favourite and least favourite coaster from each manufacturer" recently got bumped, it gave me the idea to make a similar thread, but for countries instead of manufacturers! Mine will be a bit dull, as I've only been to 2 countries, but I think it could be interesting to see the responses of those of you who've visited more countries. Anyway, I'll get the ball rolling with mine:
United Kingdom
  • First: Runaway Mine Train (Alton Towers)
  • Favourite: Icon (Blackpool Pleasure Beach)
  • Least Favourite: Infusion (Blackpool Pleasure Beach)
USA (Florida)
  • First: Incredible Hulk (Universal's Islands of Adventure)
  • Favourite: Mako (SeaWorld Orlando)
  • Least Favourite: Primeval Whirl (Disney's Animal Kingdom)
I'd be intrigued to see you guys' responses!
P.S. As implied by my post, you can split the USA into states if you wish!

I know these haven't been active for a while, but similar topics do exist on the forums already. :)

Well, we don't have a topic that would join the three together and we don't have one that focuses on the least favorite coasters (I'll get back here with that once I get hold of my good ol' spreadsheet later this month), though!
