The grand opening for the world’s fastest wooden roller coaster “Goliath” has been delayed.

Six Flags Great America spokeswoman Katy Enrique, says the park is pushing back the ride’s roll-out because of “delays in the final touches.”

Goliath was scheduled to open at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee on Saturday May 31.

The media day has tentatively been rescheduled for Friday, June 6. A commercial shoot and midnight premiere for the ride has also been postponed.

No official opening day has been announced for the general public.

The coaster is set to be 165 feet tall and will plunge into a 15-foot deep tunnel for a record-setting 180-foot fall.
