We added seven new Titan construction photos yesterday. We took only seven on our way to the airport. Be sure to check next week after we return from Christmas break.

Regardless of being a semi-clone, if its half as good as Goliath the lone stars will be more than happy with the final product. How does the saying go? Imitation is flattery... (something like that)

My gut feeling tells me it will be better! ;)

Yeah, who cares if it is a near clone? Imagine the average SFOT patron's reaction when the commercials start running for this! Or better yet, showing up at the park to see The Texas Giant dwarfed by Titan of Texas! (the way Colossus is by Goliath)

Six Flags did it again. This was their chance to build a Giga-Coaster. Instead they go ahead and clone Goliath. They should have ordered something exactly like Goliath except with a steeper drop and being 320 ft. tall. And scale the elements of the coaster to fit a 320 footer.

Six Flags thinks of quantity, not quality.

A ride dosen't have to be 300 feet tall with a 80 degree drop to be good, Goliath rocks so Titan will to, if you don't like it don't go to the park. I'm sick of hearing people complain about it.

Enough with the broken record, iluvcp. I think we all know how you feel. Your claim is baseless and repetitive. Give it a rest.

There isn't a coaster enthusiast on the planet who wouldn't want this thing in their back yard.

Thats true, it would be a nice coaster to have in my backyard... but I think that Nitro/whatever its going to be called that is being constructed at SFGAd is going to be even better. I've been jealous of people who live near Raging Bull & Apollo's Chariot and now I won't envy them anymore. B&M creations seem to get better and better.

B&M Hyperccoasters are'nt great-well, let's just say that they aren't nearly as good as Intamin or Giovanola's conecepts of hypercoasters. How come on every one of B&M's coasters the track dips downa couple feet and either twists and drops, or in a hypercoaster's case, the track drops a couple feet and levels off and then drops to the ground? Intamin is the master of Hypers/Gigas and B&M is the master of looping coasters. Sorry if I've offended anyone, but that's what I think

I think the dip before the actual drop is supposed to give the entire train enough space to disengage from the lift chain so the front cars don't "hang" down the drop while the rear cars are still climbing up the hill. I have never been on a B&M hyper before, but I know that Apollo's Chariot and Raging Bull get great reviews so they can't be all that bad. The thing that looks most interesting me me is the design of the trains on B&M hypers, they seem to leave the riders more exposed than traditional hyper trains such as those on Morgans and Intamins. I would be happy is SFGAd was getting ANY kind of hyper coaster, but the fact that 2 of the 3 known B&M installations in the U.S. this year will be within 90 minutes of where I live (SFGAd and Dorney) makes me very happy!

As it should! As excited as I am over X, I envy you guys who live near Great Adventure and Dorney Park. Two B&Ms in one year. Sounds absolutely awesome!

I wonder why so few B&Ms are being constructed in the U.S. this year as opposed to the past few years? Its odd to see no B&M action going on west of the Mississippi, especially with so much coaster construction going on over there in general.

It is weird, no new B&Ms for California this year seems odd. But it seems to go in waves, last year there were no new Intamin's or Arrow's in California. This year there is two of each, but no B&Ms. Strange...

Uh... Medusa at Six Flags Marine World is B&W. That may be the only one though for 2000. Hopefully PGA will get another B&W in the next couple of years.....?

I've been on Goliath and trust me you don't want an exact clone . The first and second drop along with the zero G hill are great, but after the break run all you have is a double helix, which causes some serious gray-outs. Then it's back to he station. The ride is WAY to short for a hyper-coaster.
