After numerous delays, the wait is finally almost over. The World's Fastest wooden roller coaster, Goliath, is set to open this Thursday and now there's actual front seat footage of it in action.

Six Flags Great America has announced a new opening date of Thursday, June 19 for the much-anticipated Goliath roller coaster, which is touted by the amusement park company as being the world's tallest, steepest and fastest wooden roller coaster.

The ride was originally scheduled to open May 31 but was delayed due to the unseasonably cool spring, park officials said last month. In addition, roof shingles caught fire near the ride in early June but no one was injured.
