I haven’t ridden enough coasters to know if it’s running great or not.....today Wicked Cyclone seemed awesome.....we were in the middle of the train which is nice sometimes cuz it eliminates the hold back in the front and the pull o we in the back and gives a freer ride.....loved it.....love knowing the ride enough to twist my body into the direction changes.....amazing.....tht ride really is something....my 11 yr old really loved it too.....

I'm at the park now and had to park in the very back of the second lot. Despite that, most ride lines are manageable outside of Harley Quinn so I'm guessing most people are at Hurricane Harbor.

Harley Quinn has a posted hour wait and ran a really long cycle. It's definitely the park's best flat now. The only thing I noticed is it's a complete free-for-all when it comes to groups trying to sit together.

I also noticed the park renamed their slingshot Nightwing to fit into the Gotham City area.

Lastly, Goliath is still closed. I don't think it has operated yet this year unless I'm mistaken.

I hope they can get goliath going by the end of the month when we visit. I have been to a bunch of parks that have had one, but they have always been closed for one reason or another.

^ I wouldn't hold your breath unfortunately.

At least Superman and Wicked Cyclone do a good job making you forget about it.

Do you think they'll eventually junk Boomerang & Goliath (I know the latter has gotten really rough after the new trains from Premier Rides were installed . . . why that is, I don't know)?

If so, what goes in it's place . . . . Raptor or T Rex?

Despite how Goliath seems to be a technical nightmare, it is the more popular of the two. So it's hard to say what's more likely to stay long-term.

I wouldn't be mad about seeing Goliath go. I was there last week and there was no train to be seen. A piece of track was removed from the station as well but I assume that's how they get the train on and off.
The best coaster is Boulder Dash

If the donkey is rockin, don't come knockin!

Hopefully they are trying to fix that awful train. I dont see any other reason for it to be gone so long, last year they got Goliath opened by Memorial Day.

I would not have a single issue with the park ripping out both Goliath and Flashback and replacing it with a single, awesome coaster. It's unlikely the park would do this soon, especially both at once, but both rides (particularly Goliath) sit on some prime real estate for the park. If maintenance costs get high enough and ridership drops, it wouldn't surprised me.

I really hated all three of the Vekomas when I went in 2016, but apparently Mind Eraser/Riddler is actually pretty good now so that just leaves two. Luckily Wicked Cyclone and Superman are both awesome enough to make up for the park's crappy rides.
