Over Memorial Day weekend, I stopped by at Six Flags Great America to have a look at the construction of Goliath. Since my last visit, most of the track work has been completed, so now the only work remaining is to thread the lift chain in place and test the ride. However, testing is a lengthy phase, and the park just announced that Media Day will be delayed to June 6th, so they can be sure they are ready to open.
Thrillseekers was filled with plenty of Goliath merchandise. Here are just a few pictures of the Goliath shirts that riders can buy:
The above video is the latest Goliath insider video from Six Flags. The video captures the construction crews topping off the lift, which is 165 feet high.
As Goliath's construction nears to an end, so will my construction updates. You can expect one more update from me, as well as a Media Day trip report, and possibly a review coming in the next few weeks after I ride.
Coasters are my passion. It's what I do, it's who I am.
