• Can you see anything different compared to the Titan tunnel?
• Notice that even the tunnel's opening looks like ancient Mayan temple stone? Nice touch, eh?

Dude have you seen the pic of Titan's drop? Talk about a boring one I bet. Most of the time I forget I have that  SN so don't think I said it just because my name is SFMMANIAC.

Soggy's avatar I have ridden both, and let me tell you, while going down the first drops of these respective coasters, you don't really see much of anything except a blur!  Titan has the extra helix which (IMO) makes it better.  Keep in mind SFMM is my nearest megapark, but I am able to seperate the peas from the carrots. (so to speak)

No reason to shout Frizbee. From looking at those pictures, Goliath's tunnel looks alot better, but I would rather ride Titan for the extra helix. Titan's landscaping does look a bit plain, though.

I'm sure anybody take another g-filled helix over some theming, but this is interesting to see. Especially as I often hear SFOT as the most beautiful Six Flags park, and see many people turn their nose up at SFMM's theming. Although I do hear that Titan has trees incorporated in it's second half.

Soggy, or anyone who's ridden them both, is the line for Titan themed to Goliath's extent? That's where I think it really counts. Goliath had that incredibly dense fog, the jungle-like canopies overhead, and the carved statues and stone formations. Any comment, anyone?

Six Flags can theme quite well when they want to. But they're terribly inconsistant and I can't figure out why. You look at coasters like Mr. Freeze, Goliath, The Chiller or Batman, good stuff. Then they do cheap hack jobs like Nitro, S:UE or Titan, and you wonder who cut the budget.

This post is about a tunnel comparison.  All SFMMManiac stated is that in his opinion Goliath's tunnel looks better than that of Titan - nothing to get so defensive about.

I haven't ridden Titan, but based on the photos Goliath's tunnel does look a lot nicer.

      I've never been on Titan but the tunnel on Goliath adds to the drop so much. The mist is cool. I don't care how much clearance that tunnel has but when racing down into at 80mph I think for sure this time it's gonna take my head right off, I duck every time. I love that ride- too bad I have to head back to Ohio in 4 days....

Hey, lay off Titan! If you want to see coasters with little or no themeing go to Ceder Point.

I have ridden Titan more than 120 times and I can tell you that the themeing is unremarkable. Although they did recently add canopies and fan misters to the queue area to keep patrons cool during hot summer days.

As for the tunnel comparison.....when seen from that angle, Titan's tunnel does look rather plain. However, going through it is another story. It's seems so small that I am tempted to pull my hands down. But I leave them up anyway. There is no mist as yet, but I have been told that mist is comming as soon as the drainage system is complete.

There are indeed trees around Titan's latter half. The track seems to disappear into these trees at times. Very cool.

Even without the mist or the theming around the entrance of the tunnel Titan would still be a cool ride to ride.
