    Leviathan is now the tallest and fastest roller coaster in Canada. Behemoth, at the same Vaughan park north of Toronto, topped out at 70 metres and 123 km/h. Leviathan is the third tallest traditional lift-style coaster in the world, behind a 96.6-metre monster in Japan and a 94.2-metre tummy turner in Sandusky, Ohio.
    Leviathan’s 1,672 metres of blue painted steel, like ribbons in the sky, either entrance or horrify at first sight. There’s nothing subtle about it.
    Ok -- does anyone start sweating when watching that video!? It seems they just keep getting bigger and bigger each year! Everytime I drive by it I am shocked at how big the ride is!

    I didn't have the cahonies to attempt the one in Ohio...and I'm pretty sure I won't have the cahonies for this one.

    I'm scared of heights but I LOVE roller coasters and I spend the agonizing clink-clink-clink as we ascend that first hill with my eyes squeezed shut. Once we're on the down side and moving, I'm ok. Leviathan is a fitting name. This one looks like an absolute monster.

    Can you just imagine how long the line will be this summer for it? When we went to Cedar Point, their big one had just opened and people were waiting 8 hours (yes, that EIGHT HOURS!) to ride the friggen thing. That's another reason why I didn't try it. I'd rather ride the older ones 16 times in a day than ride the new one once.

    Someone would have to pay me big $$$ to go on that lol Last year BF and I took our friends who came from out of town to Wonderland and they all enjoyed the rides while I watched them lol I decided to try the tea cups in the kids section and ... I'm not gonna lie I almost cried , it was scary!!! I did enjoy the water one where a group are on a raft but that's it I'm a big wimp!

    LOVE IT!!!

    im definately going on that one.
    Behemoth is a great ride, my only criteria is that I won't sit in the front seat.

    80 degree drop....can't wait!

    We drove by on Sunday and it looked like they were testing all the rides (including that one) It totally freaked me out. It's practically a straight drop. Guess I'm getting old. . not for me. My DH just about drove off the highway he was so enthralled with it though. lol

    The only good thing about being in the front Sunshyne1 is that you don't risk getting hit with any "regurgitated product" Wouldn't want to be behind someone that just ate a big wad of candyfloss. Lol!!

    That Sunday April 29th was actually Scotiabank day. It was awesome and less people = more rides. I went on Leviathan 3 times and each time was just as good. It goes so far up into the sky that you can feel the temperature dropping!!

    Oh my goodness, I actually felt sick watching the video, I think maybe I am getting old or it might just be that it has been way too long since I have been on any roller coaster

    I would do it if it had shoulder restraints but I don't think I could do it with only that lap...it looks like nothing is holding you in. But then again I love upside-down coasters but hate the wooden one...again it feels like you'll fall out.
