Are you brave enough to take on Goliath? by Jessica Jerreat, Mail Online Photo: Six Flags

Made of wood, just as they were in the good old days, this very new wooden roller coaster holds a bunch of records including the fastest coaster of its kind (wooden) in the world, and the longest and steepest drops. It features spirals rather than giant loops that are a trademark of most of today’s steel coasters. Both amazing and scary, this new but old-fashioned roller coaster will get you speeding around at 72 mph (116 km/h) and holding onto your stomach as you drop 180 ft (55 m) at an incredible 85 degrees.
