Goliath

Hurtle Down a Blisteringly Fast Trio of Inversions, Then Boomerang Backwards. 

Goliath is so intense they had to invent a whole new category of super-coasters just to describe it... a Giant Inverted Boomerang. The boomerang was invented by ancient Australian tribes as the ultimate weapon. What’s the benefit of the boomerang over a plain old stick? When you throw it, it slices through the air and then comes right back to you.

But what happens if you hurl a mega-ton steel train down the track at nearly 65 miles per hour? And what if we threw in three mind-ripping inversions to get in your way? You’re gonna fly through this monster and then return to the starting point.

First you and your fellow tribesmen are going to load into a suspended, feet dangling in the air train, which will waste no time in spiking you up 194 feet in the sky, backwards. Hang out up there for a second; this is the air that only giants usually get to breathe. But you’re up that high because you’re going to need all the momentum you can get to tackle this ridiculous flight path.

With epic thrust, you’ll be released powerfully forward back down the track. Now we’ve got some speed. First you’ll take on a courage-zapping double inversion 110-foot cobra roll. This cutting edge loop design flips you upside down, then traces a dip that looks like the head of a hooded snake before flipping you over again. Now that you’re warmed up, how about conquering a 102-foot vertical loop?

You’ll get thrown through this so fast, you’ll be totally out of breath as the track curls up into the sky for a relaxing pause hanging nearly straight up in the air. Sitting at the top of the rail, take a second to collect yourself. You’ve been through a lot… and there’s still more to come. Goliath is going to send you all the way back to the beginning, the way you came. Only this time you’re doing it backwards. That’s another vertical loop, and another double-headed cobra you’re gonna have to take on as you fly right back to where you started. Then and only then will you be able to stand among the giants!

Staring down in an epic duel, this showdown will have you face your foe high above Tombstone TerrorTory and then again backwards.

In the midst of Tombstone TerrorTory stands the Goliath Towers, symbols of the powerful wealth brought into town by Vincent Faustus. Up the hill, a celebration takes place in his mansion; but any traveler that passes by this ominous structure is quickly pulled in by its power.

Before you can escape, you are dragged up into the air nearly 200 feet and left suspended staring straight down at open graves ready for your corpse. Then without notice, you’re released and tossed about at such a high velocity that every deceased bandit in the valley is woken by your screams. Suddenly, you are frozen in mid-air facing directly into the moonlight before the mysterious force that grabbed you lets go causing you to fall backwards traveling the same hellish trajectory a second time.
