once they slowed the top of goliath to a crawl, any airtime that was there disappeared. now it's just a long ramp.

Maybe it's the angle, but it looks like the structure of Hang Time is going to loom over the mine train ride in a big way. You also get a sense of how steep that initial brake section really is.

Also, what's going on with Sol Spin? I haven't ridden it yet but just bought a 2018 pass and wouldn't mind dropping by to check it out in the next few weeks.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^It is still closed according to the website. It’s been down for about two months now. I heard they were testing with water dummies a few weeks ago, but I guess it’s still having issues.

When I caught the coaster bug last summer and visited SFMM for the first time, I rode TC and Apocalypse before Goliath and was honestly bored with Goliath's drop. Depending on where you sit, you may slightly lift up out of your seat. The head-chopper tunnel at the bottom is fun, though.
1) Twisted Colossus 2) X2 3) XCelerator 4) Tatsu 5) YOLOcoaster 6) Viper 7) Batman 8) Matterhorn Bobsleds 9) Apocalypse 10) Ghost Rider

Seat, don't fail me now!

Isn't this nothing more than a carnival ride? Hard to believe there are so may issues.

There is no false advertisement here, only false hopes.


Actually it says 150' Verticle Lift. Are we done now!!!!


But the first 20' is transition to vertical and the top 20' is transition to horizontal so technically it's 110' of vertical..
Before I get attacked I was poking fun at the original STUPID comment (s)

Sorry joshfreuund, did not mean to attack you as I was also commenting on the other comment. Cheers

Don't forget about Montezooma, it also has a 48" inch height requirement and only lap bars!
