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!
Goliath testing before the park opens.
The mass of humanity waiting to get in. And by "mass," I mean about 100 people.
It's business time.
In case you forgot.
Such a pretty ride. Such a horrible headache ensues.
For those about to get headbanged... we salute you.
Poltergeist threading the needle.
Didn't ride it.
Why are we doing this?
I can has spine damage?
Through the cliche.
I'm Superman, and I approved this big ass loop.
When do I get my Gleaming the Cube ride? (Thanks, Billy)
And, as you can see, I ripped a hole in the time-space continuum by taking a digital photo of an LCD screen. Thanks for reading!
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!
