Crack Axle Canyon
Giant Inverted Boomerang
Goliath was moved to Six Flags New England from sister park Six Flags Magic Mountain, where it was known as Déjà Vu. In its new guise, it received all-new trains that can seat four riders across, although its "inverted boomerang" circuit is unchanged - the tallest of its type in the world.
The new train design allowed Six Flags New England to increase the capacity of Goliath, which is a Vekoma Giant Inverted Boomerang roller coaster. The ride sees guests being pulled backwards up a lift hill, plunging through several inversions following the first drop, and then repeating the course in reverse. Only a single train can operate at a time, so the larger number of seats on the new trains enables more guests to ride per hour.
The ride is larger than previous Boomerang designs, and incorporates a 102-feet-tall vertical loop, followed by a 110-feet-tall butterfly turn.
