Earlier this year the ultimate coaster at Great America was crowned as king of wooden rides by the Guinness Book of World Records. That roller coaster is Goliath.
The height of the ride was confirmed as the world’s tallest, fastest and steepest wooden roller coaster at 54.86 meters or 180 feet. The incline of the steep drop is actually an 85.13 degree angle. The speed of the train when loaded by officials the train clocked in at a speedy 71.89 mph (or 115.7 kmph).
