Goliath good place to propse (???)

Wednesday, August 25, 2004 11:19 AM
I found this on MSN, article about 9 best places to propose, and Goliath is one of them....just an interesting tidbit.

Six Flags Magic Mountain, Valencia, California
Propose the plunge -- then take it! -- at 85 miles an hour on the second tallest and fastest roller coaster in the world. "This coaster is perfect, because it's open year-round and has a nice, slow 255-foot-high anticipation-building ascent so that you have time to recount all the things you love about your intended before you pop the question at its crest." Why propose on a roller coaster? "It's a full-body rush if the answer is yes. And they'll be secured by restraints if the answer is no!" *** Edited 8/25/2004 3:21:50 PM UTC by CedarPoint82***

Is this an old story? I can think of at least four coasters that are taller or as tall as Goliath.

Anyway, as I've said before, if you're gonna propose on a coaster, you better be darn sure your future wife is as big of an enthusiast as you are.

Well it says it was copyrighted in 2003 by The Knot Inc., whatever that it. Yeah there are a lot of coasters that opened prior to 2003 that are taller! *** Edited 8/25/2004 3:24:58 PM UTC by CedarPoint82***

Most media (especially MSN) would probably just take Six Flags' word for it that Goliath is the 2nd tallest.

That being said, look for the MSN article tomorrow on how you can cure hiccups by flipping yourself upside down 12 times at 93 mph (of course a world record) on Superman: X-Flight at Six Flags Astro Mountain Adventure ... at least according to Six Flags ...

I proposed to my girlfriend at the time while going up the lift hill on MF. It was pretty cool actually. We had an upcoming vacation planned and all week long leading up to the event, I had been throwing out some clues which actually meant nothing and were totally unrelated to the big surprise. She was stunned when I actually pulled the ring out of my pocket and asked her. You can read all about it here. http://www.coasterbuzz.com/forum.aspx?mode=thread&TopicID=9448

My only advice...

Keep the ring in your pocket till the ride comes to a complete stop.

janfrederick's avatar I dunno, I think that might not be the best place. It's noisy and distracting.

Just don't drop the ring, they willn't be able to retrieve until after the park closes :)

Joey, that's great! I've always thought that would be a good idea and I'm glad to see it worked out for you. Congratulations!
Yeah, it probably would be a little risky though, you don't want to drop it and if you did, it may be hard to find!!! Better make it the ferris wheel or something.

How about proposing pre-launch on Dragster.

Not really though, you know women don't want that kind of thing, unless, as previously said , 'theyre as big an enthusiast as you are'.

Not that your idea isn't bad or anything. But if she is anything like my wife and likes old/antique looking/historical stuff and thinks it's romantic. One of the coasters that have been around for a long long time and is still in it's original layout might be better.

Something like:

"You know this coaster was built in 1910 by Charles Dinn. Do you think a marriage between the two of us could last this long? will you marry me?" Then give her the ring when you return to the station in front of everyone standing in the queue. But don't take to long. You now how enthusiast are about capacity.

That wont work. lol. Ill give you a bit of a scoop on that nightly track walk thing. How do I put this...ok, look, just make sure you don't lose it on a ride where the crew just isnt gonna give a rats azz. Working at Scream, lemme tell you, I enjoy my Spy sunglasses, my battery for my Nokia, and my Nautica wallet, all courtesy of the GP. Don't get me wrong, I dont work there anymore, but, just so you know, if someone lost a ring on a ride, I can garuntee you, with the wrong people on the crew, that ring will be pawned and divided to who ever knew about it. But, this is SFMM, i dont know about any other parks.
