|Max Speed||70 mph|
Goliath is Six Flags Over Georgia's towering hypercoaster which stands 200ft tall and is one of the highlights of the park.
The rollercoaster was manufactured by Swiss company Bolliger & Mabillard, and was opened on April Fool's Day 2006 at a cost of $20million.
It is a spectacular ride which offers diving drops, airtime hills and swooping turns.
Part of the track flies over the park's main entrance road, offering visitors an early sight of the thrills that await them. There's a wonderful intense helix at the mid-point of the ride which is used to turn the coaster around for the return trip to the station, but perhaps the highlight has to be the way the train glides over the giant hills.
In the main, Six Flags Over Georgia has a fairly mediocre collection of rollercoasters, but Goliath completely bucks the trend. It has won several awards and is regularly praised as one of the best B&M Hypers out there, not least because of the insane amounts of airtime it can produce.
