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 when it opened on 13 May 2006. In May 2008, these records were surpassed by Behemoth at Canada's Wonderland, also made by Bolliger & Mabillard.
The attraction was announced on 25 October 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 opened on 13 May 2006.
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.
