I expect I'm not alone on this. Occasionally I'll find myself persuading non-goon friends to come and visit some new parks with me. There's something really great about getting your friends on rides you love just so you can gauge their reactions. This got me thinking about which coasters I would pick to 'introduce' non-goons into the hobby. Years ago, I managed to get my friend on Corkscrew at Alton Towers which set him off on his journey to semi-goonism. This was a guy who was afraid of the Gold Mine at BPB. Since then, he's come to various foreign trips and will pretty much ride anything. I'm hoping to reel him into more goonism by taking him to Europa and Liseberg. At the moment though, I've got him hooked on videos of Taron, which will keep him sweet for a while. I think I could get some of my friends and family members "into" the fun of woodies with rides like Joris & Heidi. Most of them only really understand wooden rollercoasters in terms of the oldies at BPB. Maybe something like Helix would be a good introduction to the thrill selection, since it isn't particularly high speed or notably intense. What coasters do you think would draw otherwise non-riders into the hobby? Perhaps you have some similar experiences with family or friends?
