Steel First was a steel junior roller coaster located at Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom in South Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania.

The coaster was originally located in East Dundee, IL at Santa's Village as Snowball Express from the 1960s until 1985, and then was in storage until it was bought by Dorney Park and reopened in 1990. Maximum rider height was 34". It was originally named the Little Laser, however, after the removal of Laser, the ride was renamed Steel First, which is a take on the hypercoaster Steel Force. Steel First was removed after the 2010 season.
