Six Flags New England announces Goliath

[Ed. note: The following is an excerpt of a press release. -J]

Six Flags New England, home to the largest collection of coasters in the Northeast, today announced the addition of Goliath a suspended looping boomerang coaster that will leave guests wondering which way is up! New England’s newest coaster will reside in the Crack Axle Canyon section of the park and will make its debut in late spring of 2012.

The ride experience will begin when guests are strapped into chairs suspended from the track above, Goliath sends riders dangling face-down out of the station and up the first tower. Once riders reach the top of the tower they are dropped into a complete vertical 18-story free-fall reaching speeds of 65 miles-per-hour before racing head-over-heels on the outside of a 102-foot-tall vertical loop followed by an enormous 110-foot-tall butterfly turn before rocketing up the second 19-story tower. Think that’s all…hold on, there’s more as guests are sent rocketing back through the entire experience all over again with nothing beneath their feet but earth and sky.

Gonch, the "Um... yeah" was my recognition of you saying someything. That being said I had no idea what you said.

I didn't say anything out of the ordinary. Brian did...and I translated for you. :)

I didn't say anything out of the ordinary either...for Western Penna.

(Who says I didn't learn anything in gradual school at CMU?)

What's impressive is that you actually added the "an at" to the end of your first sentence in the correct manner. Well, correctly for a Pittsburgher, anyways.

And no, I've never been to the Bloomfield Bridge Tavern. Heard some stories, though.

Is Pittsburghese really a distinct dialect anymore? Maybe I just can't separate myself from it having only ever lived in Pittsburgh, but I don't get the impression that our language is anything unique. No one uses redd up and even the quintessential Pittsburghese, yinz, is hardly ever uttered in my presence.

Although I have been listening to polka this morning. (albeit Finnish a cappella and nothing Steeler related)
