Jim Geyer Takes On "Goliath"

Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - Geyer versus Goliath.  That's a showdown we've all been waiting to see.  Today we had our chance.  Six Flags Great America introduced a brand new triple-record-breaking wooden coaster that will be the new staple of the park’s skyline. This giant new beast features impressive heights, astonishing speeds, and stomach-tightening inversions: Goliath is the world’s fastest wooden coaster with the tallest and steepest drop, plunging riders down 180 feet and rocketing through twists and turns at 72 miles per hour.

Holding three world records, Goliath is the most extreme coaster of its kind and provides adrenaline rush like no other. Riders will elevate up to touch the sky atop the 165-foot lift hill. Then, you’ll whip over the peak and conquer the world’s tallest and steepest heart-racing drop, at an unbelievable 180 feet and a near-vertical 85 degrees. You’ll reach the bottom of this gut-wrenching slope before you even have time to scream.

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.
