A-Z Coaster of the Week: Leviathan
The A-Z Coaster of the Week is Leviathan at Canada’s Wonderland. It’s the second week in a row we’ve featured a coaster named after a mythical sea creature. Leviathan is the 306-foot tall giga coaster at Canada’s Wonderland that debuted in 2012. The first drop is huge, the speed is maintained throughout, and it’s so comfortable you could ride it over and over.
The first drop plunges the 32 passengers cars down the 80 degree drop at 92 miles per hour into a tunnel. The tallest and fastest roller coaster in Canada, Leviathan is also the tallest roller coaster built by the world renown Bolliger and Mabillard. In fact, it’s the third, non-launched 300 ft tall giga coaster built in North America (behind Millennium Force and Intimidator 305, both built by Intamin).
Leviathan uses the standard four across seating found on most B&M coasters and not the staggered V-type seating seen on its little brother, Behemoth. Another interesting fact, it’s the seventh tallest, and the eighth fastest roller coaster in the world.
