    Re: The Goliath - New rollercoaster at Six Flags in Gurnee

    I want to go there.


    "I watch the Cyclone players and they look like guys who grew up fighting for everything they got, on and off the court. In a word, men. I look at the Iowa players and I assume when they were kids they played soccer in leagues that didn't keep score to avoid hurting anyone's feelings. There is not one single leader on this team. It's a group of high school friends playing a pickup game at the YMCA and maybe they will keep score, maybe not, because they are just happy to be there."

    Re: The Goliath - New rollercoaster at Six Flags in Gurnee

    "Wooden rollercoaster"

    Yah..ok. Steel cars that are fixed to a steal track so they can't fall when going upside down...IMO not a a Wooden Rollercoaster.

    Calling this a Wooden Rollercoaster puts it in the same class as the Tornado at Adventureland. Do they look like the same ride outside of what holds the track up?

    Son of Beast RIP btw...Probably the last true great "big" wooden rollercoaster.

    Having said that...I have nothing against the coaster itself. Looks friggin awesome.


    Good times on Hawkeyenation.com after the 2010 Wisconsin Game!

    The designers are better people than me.

    On Rolleroaster Tycoon I would occasional take out sections of track mid-ride.

    Re: The Goliath - New rollercoaster at Six Flags in Gurnee

    I haven't been on it yet. We always get season passes, because if you buy them at the end of the year for the next year, a season pass, with free parking, costs as much as a one day ticket, so it's well worth it. We were up there on Father's day and they were running it for press and employees. It may not be what a steel coaster can get you, but that first drop is crazy steep. And a coaster that goes upside down without shoulder a shoulder harness sounds like a wild ride.

    I still don't think the over all ride will be better than their Raging Bull they have. That's still my favorite because of the speed and it's still a higher drop than Goliath will be. Plus, you basically sit on the car, as opposed to being in the car.

    We'll probably get up there next week to ride it, my kids are going nuts for it. I'll report back, when and if the lines go down a bit. I heard on Friday it was a 2 hour wait to ride it. Although the good thing about that, all the other coasters probably won't have lines.

    You should go to Cedar Point and be blown away. My first ever amusement park experience was Cedar Point and everything is just kinda meh compared to it. Though Six Flags Great America is pretty good
