Posted Friday, June 20th 2014 @ 8am
Good news for adrenaline junkies: Goliath, the world's fastest wooden roller coaster, officially opened yesterday at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois. Goliath travels at 72 miles per hour at a vertical angle of approximately 85 degrees. As if that isn't intense enough, the ride also plunges down 180 feet while twisting and turning.
