Goliath is a great ride but the advertisement dosent have to lie to get attention from the guest.

If two coasters in the same area are 200-feet tall and go 70 mph, they're both the tallest and fastest in the south. So Six Flags Over Georgia is able to advertise that with Goliath.

Six Flags is pulling the ole "above sea level" height factor. Given that Goliath is on a hill in the park, in a city that is well above Tampa in sea level.....well, there ya go.

Parks will use this kind of creative marketing from time to time. *** Edited 4/17/2006 3:38:39 AM UTC by swampfoxer***

Does it really matter? Its simply to get butts through the turnstile and the only people who notice this are us. Besides Texas could be considered part of the south (it was a CSA state) and since Titan is taller and faster then either Sheikra or Goliath.

Well, it is probably hard to tell a 36' difference when it is over 400' above your head.

Also, no coaster in the south is taller than Goliath (even though I don't buy the fact that's it's 200', but that's a different story), so it is technically the tallest.

SFOT's Titan is 245 feet tall and reaches 85 mph. Last time I checked, Texas was in the south.

Not that it matters too much but I thought they were saying "Southeast"....
