Goliath is a steel hyper roller coaster located at La Ronde in Montréal, Québec, Canada. Built by Bolliger & Mabillard, it was the tallest, fastest, and longest roller coaster in Canada until May 2008 when it was surpassed by Behemoth at Canada's Wonderland, also made by Bolliger & Mabillard.
The attraction was announced on October 25, 2005. It was built at a cost of 18.7 million CAD, the largest investment in a single ride at the park since its opening in 1967. The ride was installed by Martin & Vleminckx.
Goliath takes riders outside the park, to the eastern point of Île Sainte-Hélène, before rushing back into the park, over a series of hills and drops, finishing in a smooth ending in the station house, located near the Tour de Ville swing ride. The coaster has a very straight forward out and back layout until the latter portions of the ride where the layout has a few quick transitions during its return towards the station from the left to the right side and a heavily banked left turn leading into the final brake run.
