For our final edition of POV Thursday, let’s take a virtual ride on Goliath at Six Flags Great America, a high-speed IBox coaster designed by Rocky Mountain Construction.

Goliath is a sort of hybrid coaster, in the sense that its supports are wooden and its track is steel. This allows for a traditional wooden coaster feel but with incredible inversions only possible with steel track.

The ride starts with a climb 165 feet in the air and an 85 degree plunge. Reaching a top speed of 72 miles per hour, the train then navigates two insane inversions and two tunnels.

Watch an on-ride POV (point-of-view) of Goliath below:

A trip to Dollywood at age eight changed me forever. Since then, I have been on a wild quest to fulfill my cravings for thrill. Here at Theme Park Press, I desire to share my adventures and give my thoughts on the latest industry news.
