GOLIATH at Six Flags Great America

ARE YOU READY FOR THIS CHICAGOLAND? The Biggest Tallest Fastest!

The ride will set three world records for wooden roller coasters including drop length, drop steepness, and speed. It will feature the longest drop at 180 feet (55 m), the steepest drop at 85°, and the fastest speed at 72 miles per hour (116 km/h).

We got a test spin today and IT IS SUPER FAST – and that first drop? OMG!

Reaching top speeds of 72 miles per hour—the fastest of any wooden roller coaster—you’ll then thunder around surprising curves and outrageous twists. You’ll face three intense over-banked turns, a 180-degree zero G-roll twist, and two wild inversions, flipping head-over-heels through a winding inverted drop and a spiraling inverted zero G stall.

Goliath is built by an Idaho company called Rocky Mountain Construction Group. That company uses nontraditional methods to make wooden roller coasters, allowing for thrills traditional wooden roller coasters can’t provide, as detailed in a Tribune report last month.

Like all the big fantastic coasters, lines can be long for a quick 90 second ride!
