Goliath Roller Coaster Opens

roller-coaster-goliath

While this isn’t a metal roller coaster it is still impressive. The construction and work done on the Goliath Coaster at Six Flags Great America is impressive. Consider these facts: world’s fastest wooden roller coaster, also has the longest and steepest vertical drop and it goes upside down twice. Don’t let it fool you though while most of the construction on it was done using wood, it also uses steel. I am not a big roller coaster fan, I think I have just gotten old and am a bit afraid of heights but if you have ridden this or plan on riding it please let us know your thoughts on it. The Chicago Tribune did a really nice piece on the coaster and you can read it by clicking here.
