One of the best new roller coasters for 2014. Goliath is one of the tallest, fastest, wildest roller coasters at Six Flags Great America, smashing three world records for a wooden coaster at the time– fastest, tallest, and steepest descent. The trains ascend to a height of 165-feet before beginning a 180-foot drop at 85 degrees into a below ground tunnel. RMC added unique elements like a 180-degree zero-G roll, three over-banked turns, and a mind blowing, inverted zero-G stall.
