I also have A Photo TR from media day. ^Were you there at 4:30 with ACE or did you show up at 10:00 with the contest winners. If you showed up at 10 you missed the awesome lights that Goliath had on in the morning.
I arrived at SFNE around 4:30, as asked, and proceeded to check in. We were brought into CAC and stood around staring at Goliath for maybe a half hour/45 minutes before the finally began testing. Once testing was completed they let us all onto ride for the next 4 and a half hours. It was awesome. The queue was always empty, and re-rides were possible 100% of the time. I took a lot of this time to take the pictures for this TPR, as well as just look around. All in all, SFNE put on a fantastic event, I was so pleased and it exceeded my expectations for my first media day. Everything (except for merch) was free which made my day so easy because everything was right there when I needed it. I'm gonna quit the rambling and move onto the pictures, enjoy!
Arriving this early gave everyone there a peak at Goliath's lighting package, which looks amazing in person!
Goliath began testing around 5 I think. Maybe a little later?
Then the sun came up, but it was cloudy. So the next few pictures aren't that spectacular
Finally the sun came out, and Goliath looked beautiful!
Riding Goliath with absolutely no body there was awesome. I'm so happy I got all my riding in today so I won't have to wait in those horrific lines this summer
This was one of two places where we were able to get our lunch (this photo was taken around 7:30. We didn't have lunch until 11:30.) The other place was at Riverboat Cafe
I think this one looks really cool, even though it really isn't that special. It's just balloons.
Shipwreck Fall's old station looks awesome as Goliath's queue house. I'm so happy they kept it.
This, as well as the next, are probably my two favorite from the whole report. As well as the very first night picture in this report.
Artsy. These three were so hard for me to take.
Around 10 the contest winners showed up and media day kicked into high gear. Actors, magicians, free stuff, music... It was just a great atmosphere!
The stage where the ceremony happened as well as where the DJ was during the day. He played really awesome music!
I have definitely never seen those two costumes in the park before. (Not the cowboys)
I really love this. SFNE did a fantastic job on Goliath's landscaping!
So is Shipwreck's old entrance a new viewing area? Because it wasn't fenced off but there wasn't anything there...
But what the hell, it provides great views!
Flashback looks so pathetic right next to Goliath. It's just so small and sad.
Balloon race was running briefly!
Goliath absolutely dominates SFNE's skyline.
I thought this was a cute touch
To conclude, I just want to praise SFNE for doing a fantastic job with today. Everything was perfect! Goliath never broke down, the free stuff was a nice perk, and the weather couldn't have been any better.
