yeah, if goliath has a big line, you're there on a packed day. it's a fairly good people eater.

 

I would question if Goliath is a people eater. It has the potential to be, but with seat belts, several seats going empty every dispatch, and frequent two-minute dispatches, I would say it is quite average at best.

 

Every B&M in the park (when running at least two trains) and Twisted Colossus definitely have faster moving lines. But their queues are nowhere near as enjoyable as Goliath's, so pick your poison.

scream and batman are fast too. like i said goliath is a pretty good people eater. has been since new. pre and post seat belts. only time is sucked was when they were swapping wheels every few circuits when it was brand new since the wheel compounds would fall apart.

Yeah I agree with Goliath being a people eater, and back in the day when they used 3 trains it would absolutely munch through lines.

it can't be said enough

Yeah, it's definitely a common refrain in this thread. It seems like every year when SFMM announces something, a chorus of "Are we there yet?" fires up and doesn't stop until the new thing's built. It's just the nature of the thread it seems. If it wasn't this, it'd be an issue with the trash cans / restrooms / parking / paint / cement / sun / moon etc.

 

I can't imagine this ride will take long to assemble. After all, it's a fairly small family-style coaster that stays low to the ground. Much of the land prep is probably close to completion, and I'd be surprised if the construction company took long to put it together once the factory delivers all the pieces.

It's a common refrain for this thread because somehow there is always what appears to be delays on their construction projects. It was announced in late August of last year and they are just now receiving track and pouring footers. Summer season kicks into full gear about a month from now when all the local school districts are out. Erecting the ride is only one small piece of the puzzle---then there is programming, testing, state inspections, the area redevelopment itself...lots left to do.

Compare this ride to Copperhead Strike, which was announced at roughly the same time and is arguably a more intricate ride, and it's clear why people forget about SFMM's "new for 20XX" rides in this thread.

 

So we’ll see it open by fright fest.

 

I know this is supposed to be hyperbole, but it really goes to show that this is hardly a 2019 coaster if you ask me.

 

But don't get me wrong, I'm excited for the new coaster. It's going to be awesome when it opens!

Oh, I didn't realize it had been pushed back to 2020! (The last estimate I saw was Summer 2019 ‚ so I figured it'd be June / July-ish) That is unfortunate! I wonder what caused the problems?

I was just joking with my Fright Fest comment, but I would guess no sooner than 4th of July at their current pace.

IIRC, CraZanity didn’t open until mid-July. I’d be stoked if WRC is open by the 4th.

I know haha. My point is that, since it's (most likely) not going to be open during most of the summer when more people are going to the park, it's not going to be open for much of what seasonal parks would consider the 2019 season. Of course, SFMM is year-round, which is why they can pull it off, but the first season it will be open during spring-summer months is 2020.

I hope they can't get Apocalypse open before WCR, maybe after the major construction is over they can open a path from Roaring Rapids down to the entrance. The work on Apocalypse has been quite extensive.

Lots of new supports have arrived for the ride in the staging area. They are preparing and pouring footers in the go cart area now. I can definitely see progress. I still can't figure the layout. This area seems so small.

I know what you mean. I find it interesting that this coaster doesn't even really touch the old Deja Vu plot of land (I suppose they want to continue using that area for Fright Fest). West Coast Racers definitely gives me "Silver Bullet" vibes in that it's built on top of everything.

 

More and more track and supports are showing up every week. I would still be shocked if this is open before Labor Day.

I'm hopefully going to go out there in October for Fright Fest (because I don't feel like getting scorched in 100 degree weather in the summer).

 

What are some hotel recommendations? I'd want a decent place that hopefully provides transportation to and from the park

The hotel rates in the area skyrocket at fright fest time. Your best bet would be to research rates on Google and take the city bus to the park. It drops off right by X2.

Good to know that the bus drops you off at the park

I'm kind of surprised that there aren't pictures of the construction and supports floating around. I'm unfamiliar with the park, is the area for the new ride kind of out of the way or are they still really just moving dirt?
