I loved Goliath with the old trains but these new ones are garbage and I still have no clue why Six Flags took on the additional expense of adding these. The capacity is the same and the ride is just as unreliable but now it's slower and rougher.
I must have been lucky the day I went, I rode Golijavu several times last fall and really enjoyed it! I do miss it being tucked in the corner of SFMM.
How long is the ride time on this because I just rode Pandemonium at Great Escape last week and it had a ridiculously short ride cycle. You maybe got 2-3 full rotations while it was at it's most vertical point. Overall it felt like and looked like it maybe lasted 45 seconds from start to finish. Hopefully this is longer being indoors and having a story attached.

I've been on Quassy's Reverse Time and Great Escape's Pandemonium, which is the same ride and manufacturer as Cyborg.
Reverse Time is a bit more intense and uncomfortable. The reason for this is that Reverse Time hits its max speed before fully inclined. This means you're forced outwards into the restraint which is a bit of a ball buster.
Pandemonium only hit the top speed when inclined so it avoids that issue.
I still think it would make sense if they changed the DC area to Metropolis, rename Catwoman to "Wonder Woman Lasso Coaster" and rename GCG to Justice League and have all the cars themed to all the Justice League members.

Idk. I think Six Flags would keep it just DC themed. That area is nice as it is like the sign walking down to DC is something Six Flags WOULD NOT do today
