Goliath at Six Flags Over Georgia
Just by the name you know that this is something big, but not just big it will be huge. Actually Goliath at Six Flags Over Georgia is not too tall compared to other Goliath coasters at other parks, only 200 feet, however what it lacks in height, it makes up in airtime. From afar you can see the orange hills in the sky, and maybe a train riding over them. If you missed it before you will certainly get to see it in the parking lot, because Goliath extends outside of the park boundaries and over a road!
The futuristic station in the American section of the park, and that’s where you want to go. The lift is fast and the first drop makes you wonder if you really want to put your hands up. The second hill is an airtime lover’s dream come true, and so it the third. The fourth hill is the one pictured above, it has a wicked helix downward, you fly up to the top where their is a small bop of airtime, and then the spiral begins, you start spinning round and round, the Gs are pressing down relentlessly. Just as you can’t take it anymore the helix ends and the bunny hops begin, there is even an over-banked turn in there! The ride finishes with the most forceful airtime on the coaster during the hops, the coaster was over all too soon, but you can always hop in line and ride again.
I thoroughly enjoyed Goliath, I couldn’t find anything wrong with it so I gave it a 10 out of 10.
