Goliath is apparently open for the season for anyone that cares. Hurry up and ride it before the next catastrophic mechanical failure which should be any minute now...

:lol:

My friend is chaperoning a field trip there today and asked for an overview what to ride. And I'm pretty sure it ended with "forget about Goliath, it's a lost cause."

Goliath was running when we left the park around 2:30 pm today.

^ Did Batman open up? My friend said that was the one ride they found closed but it looks open per QueueTimes.

They did get on Goliath and hated it.

I actually didn’t get over there. Harley Quinn was our last stop but I think Batman was running. Just wasn’t really paying attention.

What is the actual reason Goliath has been closed so much? Is it one thing or just an S-show of problems keeping it down? We were there last Sunday and it was running but we didn’t ride it.....just watching it go through the boomerang you could see the seats rattling so hard....and when it goes backwards through the boomerang I swear it’s not gonna make it - looks so slow

I know it can't run below a certain temperature (I think it's 50-60 degrees but someone else may know exactly), which is a problem in New England.

And then it has a whole litany of mechanical problems.

It can usually run down to 40 degrees during Fright Fest but I'm not sure what the start up temperature is. Silverwood's has an insanely high temperature limit but that's because they don't have an evacuation platform in the cobra roll like New England does. It's the only coaster in the park that ever closes when the temperature gets too low when it's been running all day. It also doesn't operate in the rain or on any day ending in a Y.

As far as the mechanical issues that it has, I don't know and I don't care because the ride sucks anyway. I'd rather ride Flashback. :lol:

^ I will take Goliath over Flashback, but I only really ride either if I'm with someone else who wants to.
