Hey everyone, check out these pics, Trains have arrived for Goliath in Six Flags Holland. I love the colors of those trains. Looks Intamin has done it again, always pushing the bar higher and higher.

I agree that the layout looks great and may come close to beating SFNE's Superman, however I don't see anything special about the trains that shows they're "pushing the bar higher." The same trains run on Millennium Force and the Supermen.

Its nice to see Europe getting one of these...we've been enjoying what we have in the States for a few years now. Can't wait to read the reports of how it rides, especially that yummy overbanked hill ;-)

Actually, Moosh, they aren't the same trains as Millennium Force. They are, however, the same as the Supermen.

Both rows of MF's seats (in each car) are about six inches apart from each other -- on the SF hypers, the front row of each car's seats are right next to each other, while the second row of each car is six inches away.

MF and EGF have the same trains...Goliath and all the Supermen have the same trains (minus the differences in train lengths).

It's too bad they all can't be like MF's trains -- those are *far* superior to the Supermen trains due to them having more room. If only they could switch. :-\

Thanks, Legendary, for the correction. I wasn't aware of the slight differences. The number of rides I've had on MF and the Supermans are few and I guess I never noticed ;-)

I repeat that 'The Incredible Hulk' is a more suitable name for this ride. ;)
