Six Flags' Chicago-area park gets the chain's fifth coaster named "Goliath," but, again, this one won't be like the others. Opened on June 19, 2014, Great America's Goliath is the world's fastest wooden roller coaster, with tallest and steepest drop for a coaster with wooden components.

Goliath features 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.

A good RMC with a breath taking drop. However the layout and ride time just harm the coasters enjoyment. Sit in the back to really get the most out of the first drop.
