SFMM GOLIATH'S BRAKES ARE NOT TURNED UP!
...to the message below, i went to the mountain last friday, it was my first time on Goliath since Media-Day, and believe me(!!!) the 2nd part is as intense as ever, no difference at all, just to assure people who plan on coming to california to ride this beast. I guess, there will always be those MM basher, who just make up things instead of enjoying that the West-coast finally is catching up with the rest of the country and even in LA lA land we can have an World-class theme park, which excactly what Magic Mountain is! P/S ....if you check Gooses Message-Board you will find a lot of trip reports from last weekend observing excactly what i said, the brakes are the same as always! www.philkpress.com/goose
... as Eric himself reported, people who came to a COMPLETE STOP on the brake run on media day still reported the remainder of the ride as being intense! I re-rode it again a couple of weeks ago and again "grayed-out" on the helix. No matter how much some jealous people try to diminish the impact of this coaster, it's a winner! Al W.
...i agree with you 100%!
> Me too
I was getting rather dissapointed when I read that earlier post, being that I am planning to play a little "hooky" from work Wed. or Thurs of next week to go ride Goliath. I guess it's all in perception - seems the last time I rode it when the breaks hit it was like nothing more than cruising along in one's car and barely tapping the brakes. Now I can get properly psyched. the photo at the link below is one I took while in the crushing grip of the infamous helix - my camera felt like it weighed 30 pounds! This is where folks blackout! (I took this pic when I was working at the park so I was allowed to bring the camera on)
....finally i see the part i usually black out..lol!
