That's such a hard question to answer. My daughter is 7 and had never even been on a roller coaster before. AK was our first day so FOP was our first ride. I was a nervous wreck worried about her, even during the ride bc it is very intense. I had told her several times in advance to just close her eyes if she got scared. Turns out she loved it. LOVED IT! I think she was more scared on Barnstormer days later.
