This whole mess of wooden poles wryly twisted and turned in the most treacherous manner is the Goliath roller coaster we’re talking about. Yeap, it is a roller coaster, and is quite a ride-able one even!

We’re not including the acrophobic in this article, nor are we referring to those who repel extreme activities. In fact, we’re pretty sure these people would faint just from the sight it!

Grab on your handrails real tight ‘cos a fall within this jutting poles is not exactly the most heroic way to end your life.

Like the calm before the storm, you’ll start off slow and steady with only the slight bends to get you into the mood. Then the track before you will visually shorten and down you go for the 85 degree suicidal drop! Before you could make out anything around you, you’d have been through a series of twists and turns and your body would have hung upside down for a few good seconds as the grand finale before the train slashes the speed to an almost instant stop and rolls you slowly to the exit.

Smooth as the ride is known to be, there are times where your butt will tear away from the surface and your body hang only by the supporting handrail, you can literally feel your soul deserting your body! How’s that for a roller coaster ride?

Take a visual ride yourself with this point-of-view video and see if you’re gallant enough to stomach the thrill.

If the video proves too much for a ride, there are also other less scary wooden roller coasters you can go on!
