In a way, I prefer Wildfire's pacing. Everything comes at you so fast on Goliath that you don't have time to appreciate it all. Maybe pacing somewhere between the two would be best (that is the pickiest thing I've ever suggested).
I haven't had a good ride on Nemesis for years. Yes its a classic and apparently runs amazingly during the autumn months at night- but I can't rank it higher for something I haven't experienced and the last couple of times i've rode it i've been underwhelmed.I'm not sure what offends me more - Stealth over Nemesis or Bandit over Nemesis...
I can definitely see where you're coming from there. All I've got to say is that you need to get back to Compounce. The reprofiling has done WONDERS for Boulder Dash. The turn after the drop is still quite rough, but it's absolutely flying through the course and the last few hills are MUCH smoother with better airtime.Goliath does so much within such a small footprint. Every element is amazing, no deadspots, different types of airtime throughout the layout, good drop. Yeah it's over quite quick but it's wonderful what it does.
Wildfire's deadspots, Boulder Dash's nasty jolting, Fury's slow helix and trim, WC's ending, all these are minor issues, but Goliath has no minor issues. It could be longer, but it's not, so I judge what I've ridden, which is an incredible ride.
Renegade I can't speak highly enough about, it's so so so brilliant. Trying to fit these excellent rides in is getting harder and harder..
I didn't have any issues with the turn after the drop tbh, it was the turnaround before the last hills which killed me. Even besides that I ranked it highly, hoping to get back on it in a couple of years.I can definitely see where you're coming from there. All I've got to say is that you need to get back to Compounce.

I get it, Chris, I totally get it. It was fantastic! The bouncing - oh my god, the bouncing, getting actual airtime off the bounces in the track - it was absolutely hilarious! Everyone was in bits at the end, I was actually crying with laughter, both times.Yeah perhaps I should at least try and explain myself! I expected absolutely nothing from this coaster to begin with, I’d heard some atrocious tales about these RCCA woodies and expected a lacklustre ride. What I actually got was a relentless, brutal, punchy, airtime filled layout that just didn’t let up the hole way round! The layout is insane, it flys (bumps and bangs) all the way round without letting up until the brakes. There’s only one painful section where you can actually see the train bouncing but the rest has been retracked and I bloody loved it in the back. Granted I never rode anywhere other than the seat nearest the back (the very back was shut) but I can honestly say a mix between the crazy layout, a night ride, the mental airtime and the sheer brutality of the ride somehow made me really really love this coaster.

Which Comet?I've also now ridden enough woodies of a reasonably high calibre to do a top ten, though the one that would have topped the list (and maybe my overall top ten too) spited me back in June. I think we all know what that was!
