What’s Your First Ride of 2013 Going to Be?

Coaster Questions

First Ride - Dollywood - Wild Eagle
There it is. You’ve been waiting all winter for this. An empty seat. Your seat. To kick off another year of theme park riding.

For many of us, it’s been a long cold winter, but the beautiful sound of a chain lift is only weeks away. To kick off a new season of Coaster Questions, I thought it’d be good to ask, what your first ride of the year will be?

For me, my first ride won’t be as exhilarating as the one pictured above (Wild Eagle). I know that a visit to Carowinds will be my first opportunity to ride. And, it’ll likely be a family trip so my first ride could be the something in Planet Snoopy with my oldest daughter. The junior woodie, Woodstock Express would be a fun way to kick off the year.

How about you? Do you already have your first ride of the year in your sights? What will be your first roller coaster or other theme park ride of the year? Let us know below and  Happy Coastering!
