Six Flags' Chicago-area park gets the chain's fifth coaster named "Goliath," but, again, this one won't be like the others. Great America's Goliath will be the world's fastest wooden roller coaster, with tallest and steepest drop. This Goliath will feature an 85-degree, 180-foot, 72 mph drop, followed by a zero-G roll, two overbanked turns, taking the fastest and steepest wooden coaster titles from El Toro at sister park Six Flags Great Adventure.
