I am taking my friend to Disney in August. She has never been on a rollercoaster before and i don't want to go on them by myself. So I was wondering what you all thought would be a good first and second rollercoaster. I was thinking going on splash mountain(shes never been on that either) then thundermountain and then spacemountain. and then going on from there. What do you all think?

1st - Big Thunder
2nd - Space Mountain
3rd/4th- Rockin Roller Coaster or Expedition Mt. Everest (take your pick, not sure what one is more intense because Everest doesnt open til spring '06 but you'll be there when Everest is open, but i'll try to find more info bout Everest and let you know)

That would be a good order to go in because, it would let her get used to them without anything too intense on her 1st try. :)

Here's a pic of the track I found: http://www.screamscape.com/html/wdw_-_everest_0.html

Hope that helps a little! Have Fun! :grouphug: :wizard:

I agree with you Travis; those are easy roller coasters to start your friend on! I would put Splash before Rockin' because I think it's less intense.

Yeah, I'm gonna start with Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, then Space Mountain, and hopefully my friend will agree to go on Rock n Roller coaster lol.

i thought of it but then realized its pretty much not even a roller coaster, its more for children and thats why its in Mickeys Toontown Fair. :)

Actually I tried that, "work your way up" stuff. It's never worked. Take them on RNR first thing and then you will see if they are a coaster person. :)

We tried working my friend up to RNR, but it didn't work. She didn't like Space Mountain, Splash, or RNR....but she did like Dinosaur? Weird. :confused3

Dinosaur isn't a rollercoaster. I love Space Mountain, RNR, and Thunder Mountain, but I absolutly will not ride Dinosaur.

Yea, but the thing that was weird to me was that, to me Dinosaur is rough and jerky but RNR, Space, and Splash are way smoother. (Space is a little rough, though) But she hated those three ^ because she said they were way to rough and scary....To me Dinosaur is alot scarier than Splash. :confused3

But she did like BTM; She kept saying," Let's go ride the Hubba-Bubba Whirlwind!" ....She called it that the whole trip. lol

The work your way up doesnt' work. first find out if you are a roller coaster person, then if you are, ride them all, if you're not, don't.

But I am just a thrill ride junky and I ride everything over and over again, anyway. ;)

Wow. :earseek: When My friend who went (she's only 90 lbs.) rode splash, she rose up out of her seat completely! The 2nd time she rode, we convinced her that she'd be alright; her Mom had put her legs over her. That was the last time she rode splash, lol

lol the first time I road TOT there was this guy in the back and he had to hold his daughter down, she kept flying way up out of her seat. She was tiny. In the picture the guy has both of his hands on her shoulders pulling her back down. :rotfl:

Try and talk her into it! We had to work on Chelsea for months until she agreed to go on! She's scared to death of Rollercoasters and she tried it. She didn't like them, but she was glad she tried them. She even bought a shirt that said something like" I survived RNR" or something like that. Now she wears that shirt to school and shows everyone. ;) :rotfl2:

It's up to you if you want to try and talk her into it though. :goodvibes
