It does look like a decent helix.To me this looks like the best elements of Apollo and Nitro packed into a smaller layout. Looks like it should be fun, especially with no MCBR to slow it. *** This post was edited by GAcoaster 9/1/2005 1:13:19 PM ***
You really got to love that downward helix - that's going to feel like 100% butterflies in the stomach! Somehow "Hi G Helix" is like the trademark for a coaster called "Goliath". But this looks like the funnest "Goliath" helix to date (the one at SFMM is almost too intense, and the one in Walibi world is a little boring) And no MCBR? Wow.. *** This post was edited by superman 9/1/2005 1:30:33 PM ***
Looks like a lot of fun! Depending on the speed, getting put into that helix immediately after the climbing that hill could be really intense. Besides the colors, this will look terrific from the interstate. The perfect addition to SFOG. And one more to pull crowds away from Rollergator's Mindbender.
It is shorter in length and drop height than the other three US B&M 'hypers'. And with their heigh restriction, I'm surprised they didn't take advantage of dropping below ground level.
SFOG: You have chosen...wisely.

Why does every new SFI Goliath coaster look better then the original SFI/SFMM Goliath coaster I hate SFI lol j/k
Is that a regular city street just going by the park this coaster drops over or is it a road leading into the park. Either way it looks cool, I've always wanted to see a coaster dropping over the street with cars driving right under it I think thats awesome.
I don't know if it's just the video or a sign of B&M over engineering because in the video it seams the train is moving pretty sluggish and appears to slowdown over the tops of the hills. I'm thinking it's just the way the video is playing on my PC with my connection can anyone confirm this for me.
Anyways can't wait to give this Goliath a spin on my 2006 coaster trip starting off with Voyage which IMO is still the hottest looking US 2006 coaster so far. All you SFOG fans hope your happy with you new 2006 coaster looks to be a great ride.
Yeah, I realize they need to start thinking about season pass sales for next year, but I still have to wonder if they'll get much media attention given their position in the south. I understand a lot of refugees are actually in Atlanta.
Good for SFOG,that's coaster #3 for them since 02....now where the heck is our next coaster?ohh well at least PKD is adding IJ:ST next year so at least I'll definitely be making a trip down there in 06.
Looks pretty nice and I love the fact that one of the hills basically dumps you into a pond/lake/pool.
Am I the only one who see's something, like a cell phone or camera that someone got onto the ride, comming loose and hitting a passing car? Awesome ride but I think that may be an incident waiting to happen.
