Goliath officially opened today with all of the expected fanfare. Which would be none. I was on the second train of the day. The ride was silky smooth, even after all the trauma it's been through. They're definitely anticipating long lines for Goliath--the queue is ridiculously long. Alas, they already scaled it back to one train operation by midday. The park was absolutely dead. Saw a few field trips and out-of-towners, and that was pretty much it.

Rode everything once, except for Boomerang and Rattler, because I value my spine. I hadn't been on Tony Hawk yet... spinning is not my thing. But my first ride was pretty gentle. The worst part was when we were in the brakes waiting to get back to the station and the car kept spinning. Definitely a great family ride and a needed addition to the park. Goliath just put the icing on the cake. SFFT has a solid lineup of rides now.

Enough chat... onto the pictures!

Wow, thanks for the photos. I really like how Goliath looks, very flashy, very bright. But I could see how alot of others wouldn't like the color scheme.

It's good to know that the park was pretty much empty so you could ride Goliath as many times as you wanted. I really like the colors of the ride. This just adds to SFFT great coaster line up. Great Photo TR!

Great TR! Goliath looks amazing! The colors are great. I think this coaster has one of my favorite color schemes! Your second photo looks like something straight from coaster dynamics! Great job!

Nice Photo TR from a park that I'd like to visit sometime.

Goliath looks nice...interesting thing, a mirror-image Batman clone with seven-car trains instead of the usual eight-car ones.

Wow, you got some great pictures! Goliath looks pretty good, although I'm still not crazy about the name.

That is some amazingly bright paint! I hope it keeps its shine in the hot Texas sun!

I'm looking forward to getting back to this park next year!

^ Hopefully Six Flags used the same 15-year no-fade paint as they did at SFMM!

I think Goliath may have one my favorite color schemes on a coaster! It almost looks fake.
