Goliath is a steel inverted shuttle roller coaster located at Six Flags New England in Agawam, Massachusetts, USA. The ride is one of six Giant Inverted Boomerangs built by Vekoma. The design is very similar to Vekoma's Boomerang design, but has completely vertical lifts on both ends. The ride opened in August 2001, and is the last of the three Giant Inverted Boomerang installations operating at a Six Flags park.
History[edit | edit source]
Goliath originally opened on August 25, 2001 at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California under the name "Déjà Vu". Pretty soon, Six Flags New England announced they were adding Goliath, a boomerang type coaster. The only Deja Vu left at a Six Flags park was the one at Magic Mountain. After ten years of operation, Deja Vu closed on October 16, 2011 and was dismantled. Parts were later shipped off to Massachusetts to begin construction on Goliath, what we know Deja Vu as today.
Design[edit | edit source]
Goliath features the standard Giant Inverted Boomerang layout, with two vertical towers, a cobra roll, and a vertical loop. The train moves out of the station backwards, up one vertical spike, then goes through the layout forwards. A second tower then drops riders backwards into the layout.
