Six Flags Over Georgia released a GIANT in 2006. Soaring over 200-feet above the park and covering an area of 8.5 acres in size, Goliath opened as the tallest coaster in the Southeast. This 4,480-foot long coaster features seven drops ranging in size from 175 feet to 48 feet. The lift hill stands 200-feet and features a gut wrenching first drop of 170-feet. One interesting fact is the second drop on Goliath is actually larger than the first at 175-feet.
