Space Mountain: The Final Frontier of Peer Pressure

Remember the first time you drove a car?

Wasn’t it the biggest day in your life?

Same is true for my niece who is 9-years old and just drove her first car at Disney World’s go kart ride.

She was really thrilled because:
1. She was 51 and 7/8 inches and the sign said you had to be 52 inches. She just passed by standing up very, very straight.

2. She could do it and her sister, who is a year younger, couldn’t.

3. She could drive for the first time — and it wasn’t just a kiddie bumper car ride.

However, her enthusiasm passed when she realized that her friends back home told her the best ride was “Space Mountain,” the roller coaster ride with a long, long line.

I’m not sure she really likes roller coasters, but she sure does react to her peers. And if they say sitting in a roller coaster and holding on is better than driving a car for the first time, then who am I to argue?

Space Mountain was all she could talk about.

So if you are marketing to the under 10 set, remember that peer pressure is the big factor, not internal motivation.
