Goliath Topped Off at Six Flags Great America

Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois, "topped off" its latest attraction, Goliath - the world's fastest wooden roller coaster with the tallest and steepest drop – on Friday, May 16, when the last section of the 165-foot-high structure was bolted into place.

The high-thrill coaster is in its final stages of construction and will be ready to debut to guests within the next few weeks.

Six Flags officials say Goliath obliterates every wooden roller coaster category by breaking three world records and also becomes the first wooden roller coaster on the planet to propel riders upside-down through two separate maneuvers. An engineering feat, this roller coaster is a must-see for the curious and a must-ride for the brave.
