Goliath is a steel roller coaster located at Walibi Holland in Biddinghuizen, Flevoland, Netherlands.
The roller coaster was designed by Swiss company Intamin in collaboration with Ing.-Büro Stengel GmbH, and assembled by RCS GmbH. It uses similar technology to bigger coasters Millennium Force at Cedar Point and Expedition GeForce at Holiday Park, specifically the trains, and cable lift hill.
Goliath opened on 29 March 2002. At this time, the park was owned by Six Flags, who have named several of their roller coasters "Goliath".
On opening, Goliath had green track and purple supports. For 2014, the supports were painted black. For the 2017 season, the track was painted blue.
After climbing out of the station, the train is released from the catch car at the top of the lift hill and accelerates down the 46 metres first drop and over a large hill. After dropping for the second time, it ascends a hill called a stengel dive, the top being overbanked 121° to the right, before dropping down into a 270° downward helix. After medium-sized curved hill, it negotiates a 380° upwards helix and a bend to take the track parallel to the lift hill. Before entering the brake run, riders experience considerable airtime on three bunny hops.
2 trains with 8 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 32 riders per train.
The trains use stadium-style seating, and riders are held in by lap-bars.
