Goliath is a Giovanola hyper roller coaster located at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California. It opened as the first roller coaster of the new millennium on February 11, 2000, and was the tallest and fastest complete-circuit coaster in the world. That record, however, was quickly eclipsed by Millennium Force.The ride is one of only three coasters designed by Giovanola. The other two are Titan at Six Flags Over Texas and Anaconda at Gold Reef City.

A small error was made while the ride's parts were being manufactured by Giovanola. The very last track piece before the final brake run was about 6 inches (150 mm) too short. The mistake was found while the final piece was being bolted to the ride, and a supplementary track piece had to be made to fill the gap.
