hey! I'm going to SFGAdv next week for a class trip. My one friend is a total coasterphobic and i want to get her on a coaster. How would you suggest that i get her on one and what which one would you suggest?

Blind fold her, lead her along the queue and into a train. Then at the top of the lift, take the blind fold off. Or you could just start her off on something easy, Runaway Train and build up from there.

Start with Nitro, pay her money if you have to. Then, everything else will be easy. Tell her she won't die and say thousands of people go on it every day and come of safe, so she will too. I did this at Knott's with my coasterphobic friend and Supreme Scream...Boomerang, Montezumma's Revenge, and Ghostrider were cake for him after that...
Life is like a coaster---
You go up, down, turn-around, and upside-down...and then there's all that pressure on your head, too...

My husband was terrified of coasters at first, the trick is to start off slow! Especially not something that has inversions, those are worse. Just start with something slower/lower (I haven't been to SFGAm so I wouldn't know which) and build up from there, with sufficient time to recuperate. And celebrate for conquering it!
