Following the 2020 season where Six Flags New England did not operate and the 2021 season where the ride stood standing but not operating throughout the year, the Goliath roller coaster has been removed from Six Flags New England

This attraction has been added to the park in 2012, after previously having operated as Deja Vu in Six Flags Magic Mountain.

During its time in the park, this ride was notably troubled, with multiple significant incidents, and often being closed, sometimes for weeks or months at a time. It was also a failed coaster model, meaning that it cost more than other rides of a similar scale to operate as time went on.

Six Flags had previously built two other clones of this ride in the US, both of which closed long before Goliath due to similar maintenance issues, with one being relocated to Silverwood where it still operates today.

Goliath was torn down following the conclusion of the 2021 season as part of a larger ride removal program across the Six Flags chain. Six Flags made a decision in response to the pandemic to demolish or relocate at least one ride in each amusement park in their chain. For Six Flags New England that was Goliath.

Former Site of Goliath Roller Coaster at Six Flags New England

At the present moment, the former site of Goliath is merely an empty dirt-filled plot of land, with no significant signs of anything set to replace it.

For the moment you can observe this empty section of the park throughout the park, including in the former queue area of Goliath, with no clear future known for this area.
