    Hi guys. The title of this thread is pretty self-explanatory, so; what was your first night ride? The closest I've ever had to a night ride on a coaster was a sunset ride on Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit in 2014, but if I'm allowed to count waterparks, then my first (and currently the only proper) night ride was the Wild Water Rapids at Center Parcs Longleat Forest.

    Mine was either Colossus or Nemesis Inferno at Thorpe Park Fright Nights back in 2006.

    Can't be 100% but I think it was most likely Nemesis in November 2002, after the fireworks.

    Back in my first year of going to CF Lives, it will have been something at Thorpe Park at Ghosterforce 2006. Memory isn't good enough to remember which. Inferno? I think it might have been Inferno.

    My first coaster ride actually was the Barnstormer during the Mickey Halloween Party at night. So magical <3

    Think it was the CF live at Thorpe just after Swarm opened in early 2012 for me. We had ERT after park close meaning it got dark by the time we left. Still love the fact I can claim I'm one of the first people to ride Swarm at the front at night!

    It's probably Big Thunder Mountain in Florida. I know I definitely had a night ride on it, and can't remember anything prior to that.

    Dude, I'm 43, I can barely remember the last night ride I had, let alone the first one.

    No... wait, Nemesis, November 1994, front row, outer right seat. It was awesome!

    Maverick, this year. Fantastic!
    It might have been Banshee a few years ago, but I can't remember much.

    The Big One around 2002 I think. I remember the illuminations being on which was great to see on ride.

    Big one, sometime around September 95/96, I was too short to go on when it opened but was straight on the next time we went!
