Six Flags Great America has announced a new opening date of Thursday, June 19 for the much-anticipated Goliath roller coaster. The ride was originally scheduled to open May 31.
Read more from The Chicago Tribune.
Love IT Live IT Die for IT!!
I can't find my receipt/golden ticket now... :-(
Bring it on! I was so relieved to see on both Facebook and SFGA website that this is the case. Had already paid a $200 change fee to US Airways and rescheduled for July 1, figuring that unless there was a work stoppage, the park would surely have it up and running by then. I hope that so many people ride it in the first week that the queue won't be as long by the time I get there, as I believe that only a Platinum Flash Pass - $110 - will be honoured for Goliath.
First week of July? Aw, shouldn't be too bad. The Fourth is on Friday, so there shouldn't be too many people off on vacation that week... :-)
I can't wait to read the next hapless episode.Last edited by RCMAC, Monday, June 16, 2014 4:16 PM
I'm glad you're not trying this for Flying Turns. Or X. "Don't book your trip based on the opening of a new coaster" includes mid-July and August and the following year. It's just asking for disappointment.

How much was the ticket in the first place? A round trip PHL to MCO on Southwest is around $300. No change fees, so the guest relations people can lie to you over and over without repercussions.Last edited by kpjb, Tuesday, June 17, 2014 4:12 PM
I'm fairly interested in this ride. Think I might take a trip soon and check it out.
I'll be there on Friday. Can't wait to get a back seat ride on this thing. Looks insane.
I call Cedar Point my home park even though I live in the Chicago Suburbs.
I really need to get to this park. I have friends in Chicago so I could do it on the cheap, but every time I go to Chicago I end up going to Neo, eating deep dish pizzas, seeing some industrial concert, drinking quality Old Style beer, catching a Cubs game, and then drinking anything but Old Style. One of these days...
