Goliath is a steel inverted roller coaster located at Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio, Texas, USA. It is a Batman clone from Bolliger & Mabillard. The ride previously operated at Gotemba Thrill Valley as Gambit from 1995 to 2002 and then Six Flags New Orleans from 2003 to 2005, where it was called Batman The Ride. "Goliath" translates to "big" or "large." However, nearly half of Six Flags Fiesta Texas' rides are taller than Goliath.
The coaster was subsequently bought by Six Flags and assembled at Six Flags New Orleans, along with several other attractions from the closed park. It reopened as Batman The Ride on April 12, 2003, coinciding with Six Flags' re-branding of the property formerly known as Jazzland.
The coaster eventually reopened as Goliath at its current location on April 18, 2008.
The roller coaster is a mirror image of the original Batman The Ride installation at Six Flags Great America. It is one of three Batman installations which drop to the right, whereas the other nine drop to the left.
