Much has been done at Goliath's construction site to prepare the coaster for the testing phase. During my visit, the construction crew checked the coaster's clearances to make sure riders will be safe as they ride Goliath. The first official test run was made on May 31st, which is a sign that Goliath should be open soon. However, due to the spring rain and thunderstorms, the coaster has been delayed once more from its June 6th date. Also, the midnight premiere event has been canceled, as the park is focusing on getting this coaster open to the general public. If you purchased a Goliath-themed shirt to get into the midnight event, you can mail your ticket to Six Flags, and they will send you back two front-of-the-line passes good for one use. I think that is a fair trade off, as this coaster could clock some long lines in the summer. Patience is the key, as good things come to those who wait, and Goliath should definitely be worth the wait!
This was supposed to be my last construction update, but the opening day has been pushed back again, so there will be one more update next week with more photos of Goliath testing, assuming it is during my visit. Once Goliath opens, I will have lots of photos of this coaster from Opening Day and Media Day, and possibly a review shortly after Goliath opens.
Coasters are my passion. It's what I do, it's who I am.
