    Good question - I think it was Rock n Roller Coaster at WDW, shortly followed by Montezooma's Revenge.

    I did Revolution first but I ain't counting that as a launch unless you count the end of Th13teen. Like nah.

    Yeah, Rock 'n Roller Coaster Hollywood Studios for me. #basic

    Actually if we're counting Revolution, the argument might be made for KI's long lost Capirio suspended coaster Scooby's Ghoster Coaster. It's more of an elevator lift with a release, but it doesn't have a chain. :p

    That's a little coaster I wish we still had sometimes. :p

    I was pretty nervous about how the launch would feel (The man next to me even asked me if it was my first time) but I ended up loving it. I *temporarily* gave it my #1 spot. Then I rode Raging Bull again haha.

    First proper launch (because the Revolution is a push and not a launch) was Bullet at Flamingoland in 2000.
