What would be a good pattern of rides (in what order to ride the rides in) for a first-timer-rider that is an 8-year-old? I mean, just go straight to the coasters, or go on the Marry-Go-Round first, or what? We are going to SFMM

If tall enough, head straight for the thrill rides. Their lines grow extremely each passing minute, non-thrill rides tend to not draw a big line, at any point in the day you will be able to get on them within minutes.

another thing, PLEASE, please make sure the child is tall enough for the thril rides. 54 inches is the tallest one has to be to ride scream and such. if they are not tall enough, they don't get to ride.

Well if they seem a bit intimidated by the rides, I'd go on Ninja, Revolution, Viper, Batman, Tatsu, Goliath, X. I did something similar with someone who had been almost traumatized by rollercoasters before we got there and ended up loving them after we left.
