Goliath was formerly Deja Vu at SFMM, there must've been a reason they, SFGA and SFOG didn't want these coasters anymore.

And what's funny is I actually really liked Deja Vu at SFMM the few times I rode it. But those new Premier trains on Goliath are just awful in every way. I'm excited to try Aftershock at Silverwood whenever I bite the bullet and decide to drive up there, apparently that one is the best of the bunch.

I think part of the reason is that they thought SFNE's shorter operating season would help.

Hasn't Silverwood actually gotten their's to be reliable?

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

I have an idea on what they can do in the DC Area. they renamed the area to Metropolis, rename Catwoman to maybe "Wonder Woman Lasso Coaster" or something, and either renamed Gotham City Gauntlet to something Superman related or remove to ride and put in some flat rides named after DC Characters

Just as an FYI, you can now add Darien Lake (or any of the newly acquired parks) to your membership for $20 per park.

I know it's been mentioned on here before about just how close HQS will swing to Joker, but now that it's open, has anyone gotten a good picture of just how close it gets?

You're actually not adding the park to your membership. What they're actually doing is offering $20 tickets to the parks if you have a season pass or a membership.

^ Good to know. I don't think I'll make it to Darien this year, but I would probably be going that way for Canada's Wonderland next year.

I have a picture on my digital camera I can fetch when I get home. It'd say it's a bit more than 10 ft of clearance, but definitely noticeable when you're on the ride.
