ATLANTA -- Georgia theme parks are offering some high points this season, as Six Flags Over Georgia unveils its new Goliath roller coaster. The steel Goliath promises to be a giant with an initial drop of 170 feet - and a second of 175 feet - with speeds of up to 70 mph. With a journey of more than 4,400 feet, the park's 11th coaster includes a series of zero-gravity drops and a giant spiral. The ride opens next month. In addition to Goliath, the new steel coaster, visitors to Six Flags Over Georgia may notice a few other changes around the park: A parade every afternoon.
