Holy crap! That's steep. Yikes.
Back seat, anyone?

Yes, please, Sir.

The amusement park rises bold and stark..kids are huddled on the beach in a mist

Now that the drop is totally tracked Goliath looks even more impressive. This ride will be a game changer when it opens.

Wow, that looks like a remarkable drop. I am amazed at how intense and fun coaster engineers are able to design these rides now. It's a great time to be a coaster enthusiast.

Man, if I had been able to look into a crystal ball and see what the future held in store for us back when my jaw was dropped looking at the pictures of Magnum XL-200 in my stack of Rollercoaster! magazines, I'd have had myself put into suspended animation ala Autin Powers. ;)

Well, maybe not. But boy!

I cannot wait to ride the back seat on this thing. Between this and Raging Bull, this park will have two of the better first drops out there, IMO.

I call Cedar Point my home park even though I live in the Chicago Suburbs.
