DesignEdit

Elements

Dive Loop
Top Gun Stall

Goliath features a double out and back design beginning with a 165 foot (50.3 meter) lift hill, and a 180 foot (54.9 meter) drop into an underground tunnel. The next element is a large overbanked turn which leads into the first airtime hill. Immediately after this is the dive loop followed by the zero-g stall (a zero-g roll with the second half reversed). The ride then turns around again, and slopes up into the final brake run.
