Six Flags Unleashes Triple Record-Breaking Roller Coaster
Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois officially opened Goliath, "a triple record-breaking" roller coaster. Goliath is now the fastest, tallest and steepest wooden roller coaster in the world, and includes a 180-foot plunge and rocketing down 85 degree angle tracks at 72 miles per hour. The coaster took nine months to build by Rocky Mountain Construction who employed a specialized track system to make the ride "very smooth."
