yeah. . I noticed that.
luckily I knew I was eating with friends later that night, so didn't have to purchase any food (paid WAY too much for steak & oyster dinner at SEAR in the Marriott Marquis -- but that's also a Dragon*con tradition for us: big, expensive meal with whatever friends hang around until Tuesday).
but multiple dining options - even the Ice Cream stand! - had lines out the door.
I tried to get water at a couple of restaurants (after not seeing any waterfountains (anywhere!)), and luckily folks let me jump in front of them just to ask for a cup. but was told "we don't do that"
so ended up buying bottles at Goliath gift shop (at 2/$10 it's a way better deal than at Fiesta Texas, where it's now 2/$14. . but I don't ever buy anymore, since the cups of water are free)

agreed, too bad we missed (tho Sunday at con, no way was I blowing it off).
you shoulda come back on Mon. . lines were pretty much non-existent
Bamwa wrote:As a fellow Texan, what did you think of Goliath? Kinda rules over our two Goliaths wouldn't you say? I absolutely think so. It's my fav in the chain for sure and maybe top 5 ever.
oh, for what it is? I love it (our Goliath at SFFT is just a Batman Clone.. a good one, but a Batman), and Titan at SFOT has been neutered to the point that it just meanders (to me).
but for a hyper? it's really good.
if I had a choice between Iron Rattler or Golitath at SFOG, I'd go for Iron Rattler.. but within the park? it's the 2nd best coaster (only slightly behind Twisted Cyclone, and slightly ahead of Mindbender & Batman (which SFOG runs INTENSE).
bert425 wrote:^ what is that Alien Abduction thing over by Goliath?
they were building it during my prior visit to the park (with TPR), and tho it looks like a Haunt, it seemed a bit too permanent? concrete queue line.
i called the # Stenciled on the door, but it didn't seem like a real # anymore . . seemed to go to some company.
so just wondering if this is a usual attraction that just wasn't open?
Alien Abduction is a permanent haunt building which operates during Fright Fest but sits dormant the remainder of the year, similar to the Fearman's Manor building near Dare Devil Dive. From what I heard from a manager, SFoG was granted some capital from corporate last year in response to the crowded conditions during prior Fright Fests so they decided to add capacity with a new haunt building. I have never tried calling that phone# - kind of surprised they used a 'real' number. They could do what SFFT does with their teaser phone number which is a real recorded message.
At any rate, we know what one of the 2019 haunts will be. ZX-1 will be there as well, for what will likely be the last year in Axis Arena.
Hey everyone..Long time watcher. Finally registered and looking forward to joining the discussion. I am planning on going to Six Flags Over Georgia on Sunday Sept 29th. Does anyone have a gauge on how lines might be that day, or just sundays in September in general?
Sunday crowds are typically very light. If you are there before the gates open, you can knock out all the coasters in a couple hours with no lines. Might start getting busy around 1 or 2 but it's also likely to stay dead. Do Twisted Cyclone first. Hit Daredevil. Sit on Goliath for a couple laps since no one will be in line waiting. I usually wait for row 1, then sit on whatever is open when we get back to the station. Knock out Superman, Scream Machine, Blue Hawk. Then get Batman and Mindbender. Kiddie coaster and mine train will round it out. Acrophobia is pretty good.
