We worked directly with Six Flags New England to provide a custom timber frame shelter for roller coaster riders to wait in line under.
This design features king post trusses with traditional joinery in western red cedar. The design is straight forward and strong just the way our engineer likes it.
Another cool part about this project was the beam and arched glulam we provided for the ride’s sign! GOLIATH. It’s an epic roller coaster.
Anyone not familiar with the mighty Goliath Towers, here it is…
For the record…I didn’t dare ride the coaster, but a lot of people did!

That was a fun day! The timber shelter being empty for the picture was just lucky!
It sure was, can’t believe it’s been almost 3 years since we were there. Time to go back!!
