    Sorry @Howie...
    I never said anything about us beating up the Welsh! I only said that I thought of Scotland as a region of the UK as opposed to its own country, a statement which I now regret!

    I think both of us are not being completely serious Matt.

    Ok then, if counting Wales and Scotland separately to England, my first foreign coaster would have been my first ever coaster! Can't remember what it was but would have definitely been in England somewhere, likely Pleasurewood Hills. Being Welsh does have it's benefits.....

    (First Scottish coaster would have been after the aforementioned Phantasialand trip, would have been the Landmark Forest Park cred as well (Would have been Codonas but was closed due to rain))

    So nice.

    Mine was Revenge of the Mummy - Universal Singapore - 27/12/2013
    The one that started it all really. Very happy with that.

    First wood was Robin Hood - Walibi Holland - 11/05/2015 11:05am ;)
    Eww. At least that rhymes.

    I think it was around 2005 when I went to Disneyland Paris for the first time. It must have been either Rock'n'Roller Coaster or Big Thunder Mountain.

    Mine was Wodan back in 2016, which was also my first wooden coaster. Two birds with one stone.

    Pretty sure mine was Space Mountain at Disney World (Florida) back in 1988. There's a slim chance we may have visited Boardwalk & Baseball before WDW in which case it probably would've been the woodie there, but I'm pretty sure we did Disney first. After that Florida trip I waited another 25 years before my next foreign cred, which was the Coney Island Cyclone. :)

    Oh and @Matt N, please do stop apologising when you start a thread! If you've searched for the topic, not found it and can't see it already on the first page of the forum, it's pretty safe to assume you're OK to post about it. ;)

    Mine would probably be Vol D’Icare at Parc Asterix back in 2002, followed by Zeus and Goudurix which were my first major coasters, don’t remember much of them but I do remember the pain.

    Mine was Wild Mouse at Sydney Australia in 2010. It was a great little coaster.

    Some Wacky Worm in Cyprus, which I can't find on RCDB, but have a picture of me on it. Only foreign coaster I've done, Unless you count Wales which would probably be Megafobia

    Uhhhh, don't actually know for sure. Something at Magic Kingdom back in 2001, but no idea what it would have been because we rode everything that day.

    I think I rode some creds at a travelling fair in France in 1999 but I really don't know for sure.

    My first foreign Woodie was probably... Stampida? In 2005?

    It was something at the now defunct Wonderland in Sydney in 2002 - either the Bush Beast or Beastie :)

    It would've been Big Thunder Mountain, Orlando, July/August 1991. Space Mountain on the same day, but I remember that being at night.

    I believe my first visit to a park abroad wasn't until I visited my mate in Germany back in 2014, so my first international cred would be Expedition GeForce. Feels weird thinking that was nearly 5 years ago now!
