6.12.19
This is TOWER OF TERROR at GOLD REEF CITY in Johannesburg, South Africa, a world-record holding dive coaster. 
112 ft. tall
164 ft. drop
59 mph
90° drop
6.3 G’s (highest in the world)
Opened December 2001
Tower of Terror exerts the most G’s in the world. It also features an elevator lift (that was almost a regular lift) and perhaps one of the coolest settings on a coaster. 
About 5 km away from Gold Reef City, an old gold mine had an extra mine shaft. Tower of Terror is built into a mine shaft. That’s so cool!
The manufacturer of this ride is unknown, even though many have suspected it to be Giovanola. They have declined this, but this is believed to be because they didn’t want to be associated with the ride. 
What do you think of Tower of Terror?

4.22.19
This is GOLIATH at SIX FLAGS MAGIC MOUNTAIN in Valencia, CA, a Giovanola hyper coaster. 
235 ft. tall
255 ft. drop
85 mph 
4573 ft. long
61° drop
Designed by Werner Stengel
Opened February 11, 2000
Goliath is a near-exact clone of Titan at Six Flags Over Texas. However, Titan has a helix before the mid-course brake run, making it longer. 
Goliath is themed to ruins of an ancient civilization. One of the main showcases of this theme is the ruin- like giant sign which you walk through. 
Despite its massive stats (it is one of the tallest and fastest coasters in America and the world), Goliath is known to provide a pretty lackluster experience. The layout consists of mostly helixes, banked turns, and little to no airtime. Speaking of stats, it had the largest drop in the world until Millennium Force opened a couple months later. 
Like most coasters at Magic Mountain, Goliath has been featured in various movies and shows. It was in the movie Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer, the TV shows Entourage and Zoey 101, and in James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke with Selena Gomez. 
There has also been two incidents on it. In 2001, a woman died from suffering brain damage on Goliath, and in 2015, the train got stuck on the lift, resulting in a new train being bought. 
Did you know that when Goliath was first built, the track was six inches too short?

Heading back home to Valencia today, overall that trip was a success. I set this trip primarily to get to BGW, SFA, ride Lightning Rod and Copperhead Strike and was successful in doing so. I'll be saying hello to my home park & Goliath for about 10 days before heading off to Texas. Photo 3/9/19

Coaster Review 24

Next up is Goliath at Six Flags Magic Mountain. This is a hyper coaster by Giovanola and was surprisingly fun. The drop had some forces at the bottom. Now there’s hardly any airtime on this ride. There was really only one moment of floater air after the first turn. Then comes the dreaded MCBR. Definitely the worst MCBR on any coaster I’ve experienced. Then come a few more turns. But then the surprising part comes in, the helix. I nearly blacked out in the back row. That helix is way more intense than people say it is. It’s my favorite part of the ride. As for seating, I’d say back row but try front also. Overall this ride is good. Definitely get to it when you’re at the park.

Final Score: 8/10

What are your thoughts on Goliath?
