Sit down roller coaster
Minimum rider height:
Six Flags Magic Mountain's big new coaster for the new millenium was Goliath, a hypercoaster manufactured by Switzerland's Giovanola. Featuring a 255-foot first drop and hitting a top speed of 85 miles per hour, it was briefly the tallest and fastest coaster in the world before Millenium Force at Cedar Point opened a few month later.
After plunging down the first drop, the train races through an underground tunnel, before entering a series of banked turns and further drops.
