Local nameGoliath
LocationGurnee, Illinois, United States

Goliath is a wooden roller coaster located at Six Flags Great America amusement park in Gurnee, Illinois. Manufactured by Rocky Mountain Construction and designed by Alan Schilke, the roller coaster features RMC's Topper Track design and opened to the public on June 19, 2014. Goliath initially set three world records among wooden coasters, having the longest drop at 180 feet, the steepest angle of 85 degrees, and the fastest speed of 72 mph. It still holds the record for the longest drop. In addition, the ride also features two inversions and a maximum descent that reaches 15 feet below ground level.

Goliath was constructed over a nine-month period on the site previously occupied by Iron Wolf, a steel roller coaster removed in 2011 and relocated to Six Flags America. Goliath's opening allowed Great America to claim the title of having the most wooden track in one park, a recognition that was later claimed by Kings Island.
