Nice pictures! Although, I think the color schemes for the coasters at SFOT are all obnoxiously bright... :?r

Yeah the color scheme is great! Looks alot better than the old paint, IMO.

Hope it doesn't fade too quickly...

Great trip report!

That's some seriously bright paint on Goliath!

I've seen a few recent Fiesta Texas trip reports and the park looks like a nice place to visit.

I like that paint on Goliath. Great photos of the other coasters too.

Wow, I love the colors of Goliath. I haven't been to SFFT since 2005, looks as if I need a trip back. I really enjoy Superman:KC. I would love to see SFoT get a floorless.

I had always skipped Boomerang at Fiesta Texas because of the long lines and the reputation Boomerangs have among coaster enthusiasts. When I visited Fiesta Texas a few weeks ago I took my first ride on a Boomerang (yes, I've never been on a Boomerang period). I was expecting the worst but was surprised that, even in the back seat, I didn't experience any slamming or head banging etc. It was actually a decent ride, and with no lines would have been easily re-ridable. I was told by Texcoaster that this Boomerang is one of the better ones and that the restraints are of a newer model, perhaps this makes a difference, but IMO the Boomerang at Fiesta Texas doesn't live up to the painful reputation that Boomerangs in general seem to have.

The Rattler, on the other hand, is a totally different story altogether... Needlessly rough, slow and boring for 85% of the ride.

^^ I've only ridden two Boomerangs---the one at Knott's, and the one at SFDK. The latter has the newer trains (like SFFT), but I don't see much of a difference.

In the last couple of years, I've finally learned how to ride without the headbashing, so the ride isn't uncomfortable for me.

Goliath looks great. Not that good of a name for it though, it's not goliath sized... I almost got to go there while i was in Galveston but i didn't realize it's about a five hour drive...
