As fans of WGN Morning News may know, Marcus Leshock is someone of our unofficial roller coaster reporter. And somehow, he convinced WGN anchor Robin Baumgarten to ride a coaster for our WGN Morning News Primetime Special.

But Robin didn't just ride any coaster. She and Marcus road Goliath at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee -- that's the biggest wooden roller coaster in the country!

In the video above, our cameras captured Robin's screams (of delight?) as she rides the ride. But in the end, she said it wasn't as bad as she thought it would be. Way to go, Robin! We're proud of you.
