Is Goliath at Six Flags in Chicago the same as Outlaw run in Silver Dollar City. It seems this was posted here somewhere but I can't find it.

Well, they both are wooden coasters. (Ducks)

They are both wooden coasters, utilizing similar trains, and built by the same design company. If that was your question.
They differ, however, in topography, footprint, and track layout. If that was your question.

In other words they are the same type of ride but are not the same ride.

I love the topic title. Its like the classic question - which is longer, a rope?

If the topic title is "Is Goliath and Outlaw Run," shouldn't the question be "Which are longer, a rope"?

They're both wooden coasters. However the trains run on different wheels on each ride. Goliath runs on Polyurethane Wheels while Outlaw Run runs on Steel Wheels.

Outlaw Run features an out and back layout on a mountain terrain with 3 inversions with a 162 foot 81 degree drop after a small drop from the lift giving great airtime from the back. The 3 inversions are a 153 Degree Outside Bank Simular to a Zero-G Stall and a Double Barrel Roll (Your hanging in your seat with with a lap bar and seatbelt in which you don't even notice the belt when your going trough these.) all built on a wooden structure.

Goliath Features a Double out and back layout on a narrow, flat, and long footprint with 2 inversions with a 180 foot 85 degree drop into a tunnel. The 2 inversions are a Dive Loop and a Zero-G Stall. The structure is mostly all wooden with a Hybrid Structure supporting the Lift Hill, First drop,and the Zero-G Stall giving it the appearance of a miniature Millennium Force.

I have ridden them both and I hope Silver Dollar City keeps the Steel Wheels on Outlaw Run as they make such awesome screeching sounds going through it's turns.

More info on these rides can be found on their RCDB entries here:

Because of the sans serif font I initially read it as a badly formed bash command. It should be ls 'Goliath and Outlaw Run' or it will throw an error...
