I’m so ready for these totally arbitrary and nonsensical covid rules to be over.  So a waterpark with no masks was fine all summer but they can’t run a coaster Or a Scrambler with a bunch of empt

This is life in Illinois. We're everything that's wrong with California, without the view.

Goliath looks like a metric ton of fun, but it doesn't look like my kind of coaster.

I would have to say that as more of an airtime guy, I wish this ride had one more airtime hill and one less inversion... BUT... having said that, I felt the same way about Outlaw Run and it totally blew me away...

I think the only question left now is where is this going to end up in the top ten wood coasters poll.

Higher than Hades 360!

Yeah I 100% agree with robb about the airtime part. I would've like to see a bit more. But I'm personally fine with the two inversions. I don't think there necessarily NEEDS to be any more inversions on this coaster.

Alright, the bar has been set. I don't think we can go much lower.

 

Gah, I really love the layout for Hades 360 and I think the new section really keeps the intensity going and makes it stellar. Every spot with proper retracking is awesome and when it was new it blew all of us away. Such a shame.

I fall into the category of those who prefer airtime over inversions as well. While I would have preferred another airtime hill, I think the hang time on that zero-G stall will make up for any lack of airtime this coaster might have. Judging the response to Outlaw Run, I suspect that that there will be some airtime in some weird spots where you will least suspect it.

Sideways airtime is my favourite part of Outlaw Run, totally unlike anything else at all. I've been watching the construction here and I am very impressed with the results. This should be one fantastic ride, and I cannot wait to be there next month.

I've had plans to visit this park on June 20th for months now. I thought for sure this ride would be open by then...But I wasn't expecting such a delay. Stuff happens, understandable, but I can't reschedule my trip and I'm really worried that I won't get to ride this on my trip. I see the commercial is being filmed on the 14th and media day is the 18th. If it does open on the 20th...I guess I can get ready for a 5 - 6 hour wait...but whatever...I just want to ride it. Has anyone heard of an official opening date to the public yet?

The sideways airtime hill is amazing! It's my all time favorite ride moment. The trick is that it actually pops outwards to eject you out of the seat still while you're on your side. It's so subtle that it's hardly noticeable, but looking at the photographs you can see it.

 

I remember my first ride thinking, "Holy crap this is amazing but the double barrel roll is coming up. First we have this sideways things. WHOA. What the hell was that? I need to do that again!"

Okay... So I agree... This ride looks AMAZING... But I too wish I could have seen at least 1-2 more airtime hills. I has so much energy left when it hits the brakes... Well... It is what it is... Still a great looking ride.

This sums up my feeling on Outlaw Run completely, which is why I most certainly cannot judge Goliath before riding it, because it very well may have weird, bizarre airtime all over it that you just cannot see from watching a POV video!
