What was your first coaster to feature a launch? Mine was Revolution at Blackpool Pleasure Beach (electric winch launch) :--D :--D :--D

[strike]Another for Rock n Roller Coaster[/strike]

Thinking back it was actually Incredible Hulk Coaster.

Black Widow at Riverside (now Six Flags New England) in the mid 90's..... Also my first vertical loop and first shuttle... And uh, first backwards?
 
I pretty much jumped in the deep end (or atleast for the UK anyway) with Stealth. It's peculiar, even to thiss day that launch still surprises me. It's just so intense.

Yeah, +1 to Rock n Rollercoaster.

Just realizing I actually haven't ridden it since I first rode it!

Either Revolution (BPB) or Thunder Looper (Alton). It would make sense that it was Revolution based on the age of the rides but I don't recall going on that until I was a lot older for some reason.

Space Mountain in Disneyland Paris. If that doesn't count, it's the European Rock'n'Rollercoaster for me.

Unlike several people in this thread, mine wasn't Rock 'n' Roller Coaster but its brother Xpress: Platform 13 (though when I rode it, it was still called Superman The Ride)
