Could we get a screengrab? Even after trying to enter my credentials (also having it claim I was never registered when I entered my email for a new password) I couldn't view it.

EDIT: Or am I the only one for whom it's asking for a WordPress blog login?

That URL . . . first YOLO, now it looks like they're going with 'ermahgerd'. I feel like maybe this is a failed attempt with marketing to the teenage demographic (which statistics show has been decreasing in park attendance). They use outdated meme phrases and slang terms. I haven't seen an 'ermahgerd' meme in months.

Record Breaking Rollercoaster Coming to Six Flags Great America in 2014
Fastest Wooden Roller Coaster with Steepest and Tallest Drop on the Planet

Gurnee, Ill. — August 29, 2013 — /PRNewswire/ — Get ready for the new GIANT in the world of wooden roller coasters! Six Flags Great America announced plans for the next addition to its arsenal of world-class rides with an all-new wooden roller coaster. New for 2014, Goliath will be the fastest wooden roller coaster in the world and feature the world’s tallest and steepest drop. All total, this wooden marvel will tout three world records making it the most extreme coaster of its kind on the planet!

“Six Flags Great America is known for introducing record-breaking and first-of-its-kind roller coasters,” said Hank Salemi, Six Flags Great America park president. “Goliath will be unmatched – setting not only one, but three world records and featuring two inversions. All of the ride elements, including an 85 degree plunge down the tallest drop on a wooden roller coaster, make Goliath the most extreme wooden roller coaster in the world. We are thrilled to bring this record-smashing coaster to our guests for the 2014 season.”

Goliath takes riders up a mammoth 165 foot lift hill, then plunges them down a record-setting 180 foot, 85 degree drop, crowning it the tallest and steepest drop on a wooden roller coaster in the world. Riders will gain record-breaking speeds of up to 72 miles-per-hour and blast into jaw-dropping maneuvers including three over-banked turns, a 180 degree zero G roll, an inverted drop and an inverted zero G stall. Goliath completely annihilates the wooden roller coaster competition.

Record Breaking Facts

Fastest wooden roller coaster – 72 miles-per-hour
Tallest drop on a wooden roller coaster – 180 feet
Steepest drop on a roller coaster – 85 degrees

Goliath will make its home in the County Fair section of the park. Construction begins this fall and Goliath is scheduled to open spring of 2014.

The biggest Fright Fest® ever is coming this fall. Six Flags Great America’s annual celebration will undergo the largest expansion in the park’s history with more haunted houses and ghouls than ever.

Six Flags Great America also announced today that 2014 season passes are now on sale at the lowest prices of the year and provide unlimited visits for the rest of the 2013 season (including Fright Fest®) and all of the 2014 season. For a limited time, with the purchase of a season pass four-pack, guests will receive a free upgrade to a gold season pass that includes free admission and free season parking to any Six Flags Theme Park with every pass.
