When did you ride your first "big" roller coaster?

My first "big" coaster would probably have to be Rockin Roller Coaster at MGM opening year, then a few months later I rode Big Bad Wolf at Busch Gardens and Grizzly+Hurler at Kings Dominion. Didn't go on another looping coaster until 2001 cause my parents wouldn't let me, lol.

Before those three I believe my coaster count only consisted of kiddie creds and the Sky Princess at Dutch Wonderland.

Oh man it was Demon at Six Flags Great America and I criiiieed all the way through the queue. I'm sure it was really embarrassing for my parents. I think I was 7? or maybe 8? Shockwave was still there, so I couldn't have been that old. I had just passed 48" that year.

My first ever roller coaster was the (now demolished) Mad Mouse at Quassy. I couldn't have been older than 4 or 5 at the time, so I definitely thought it was big :)

My first coaster with an inversion would come quite a few years later, in the form of Scorpion at Busch Gardens Tampa, probably 7 years old.

First hyper coaster was S:RoS at SFNE, as soon as I hit the height requirement. Too long ago to remember much of it though :(

Hoosier Hurricane at Indiana Beach. Fourth cred ever. Absolutely loved it and its closeness to the water the entire time.
