Blue Fire - That was also the coaster that instantly turned me into a roller coaster addict. Before it I was afraid of most coasters. When reaching the final brakes my life was changed xD

Flamingoland's Corkscrew. Probably around 1990 I think. I was around 10 anyway.

Canobie Corkscrew at Canobie Lake.... Sometime in the early 90's.
But I had ridden looping flat rides before that

I'm pretty sure it was Kumba at BGT. Went in at the deep end...
Was really nervous about going on, forced myself to go on, came off and ran back round for another go haha.

Depends what you count as an inversion, Air at Alton Towers has the lie to fly 'inversions' but eh, they kinda don't really count. Otherwise it was Nemesis Inferno at Thorpe, which in all fairness is a really good beginner inverting coaster.
