Six Flags Theme Parks has once again added to its monster coaster arsenal with GOLIATH - an all-steel mega coaster with pure attitude. It's BIG ... it's BAD... it's FAST ... it's full of GIGANTIC surprises and it was introduced on February 11, 2000 for thrillseekers around the world only at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Los Angeles. Towering 255-feet above earth, the massive steel superstructure has one of the world's tallest drops and at speeds of 85 miles per hour, it is one of the fastest roller coasters of modern day. Combining traditional coaster thrills with a few new devilish twists, GOLIATH sends riders on a 3-minute 'non-stop' high speed adventure over 4,500 feet of steel track with daring 'butterflies-in-your-stomach' plunges, huge sweeping spirals, zero-gravity 'floating' hills and drops, and the 120-foot-long tunnel shrouded in total darkness for the thrill of a lifetime!
