Down south around the city of San Antonio, Texas, Six Flags has announced that it's Fiesta Texas property shall receive another coaster, making it the park's eighth coaster. The new coaster is dubbed Goliath and shall be the forth track in a Six Flags park with that name. Though new to the area, the ride has quite a history behind it.
The ride is one of Bolliger and Mabillard's famous coasters, Batman: The Ride clones, sporting heights of 100 ft, five inversions, and speeds of 50 miles per hour. This particular coaster first hauled guests for Thrill Valley in Japan. Six Flags then purchased the coaster for the newest park in the chain in New Orleans. It became, however, quite clear after hurricane Katrina that the park was on the verge of an uncertain future. Now, the ride is to be erected at the San Antonio park, Fiesta Texas.
Notable changes to the ride other than location include a repaint to blue track with yellow supports and trains sporting orange, blue and yellow. Thus far, the track and trains are in storage at the Texas facility and preparations will be made soon to construct it.
