Conquer the Giant!

Goliath is the most extreme coaster of its kind, providing an adrenaline rush like no other. Elevate up to touch the sky atop the 165-foot lift hill then whip over the peak and conquer the world’s tallest and steepest heart-racing drop. Speed to the bottom of this gut-wrenching slope before you even have time to scream. Thunder around surprising curves and outrageous turns then flip head-over-heels through wild twists. 

This giant beast features impressive heights, astonishing speeds and stomach-tightening inversions: 

Three world's records at its debut:

  • World's fastest wooden coaster at 72 mph
  • World's tallest drop for a wooden coaster at 180 feet
  • World's steepest drop for a wooden coaster at a near-vertical 85 degrees

Key Features

  • Three over-banked turns
  • A 180-degree zero G-roll twist
  • Two wild inversions
  • A spiraling inverted zero G stall
