Goliath was the first coaster designed and built by Giovanola of Switzerland. This hypercoaster combines the layouts of a twister and out and back coaster to form a unique combination. Riders on Goliath experience intense G-forces in excess of 4.5 Gs for over six continuous seconds. Goliath briefly held the world record for longest drop and top speed for a full-circuit steel roller coaster when it opened in February 2000.
