Description

Leviathan at Canada’s Wonderland, which opened in May 2012, is a landmark roller coaster known for its impressive size and thrilling ride experience. Designed by Bolliger & Mabillard (B&M), a company renowned for its high-quality and smooth roller coasters, Leviathan is a giga coaster, a category reserved for coasters that are between 300 and 399 feet in height. It was the first giga coaster built by B&M and marked a significant milestone in the evolution of roller coaster design.

The coaster towers at a staggering height of 306 feet, making it one of the tallest roller coasters in the world. Leviathan’s first drop is a breathtaking 306-foot descent at an 80-degree angle, leading into a high-speed, adrenaline-fueled ride. The track spans 5,486 feet in length, and the coaster reaches a top speed of 92 miles per hour, offering an exhilarating experience from start to finish. The ride duration is approximately 3 minutes and 28 seconds, filled with high-speed turns, hills that provide airtime, and smooth transitions that showcase B&M’s expertise in coaster design.

Thematically, Leviathan is named after a mythical sea creature, and this theme is subtly reflected in the coaster’s design and branding. The coaster’s massive structure and striking blue track make it a visual centerpiece of Canada’s Wonderland. The theme extends to the ride’s entrance and queue area, which feature maritime and mythical sea creature motifs, adding to the overall experience.

Since its opening, Leviathan has been celebrated for its massive scale and high-speed thrills. It has received widespread acclaim from both coaster enthusiasts and the general public for its smooth ride and impressive statistics, becoming a must-ride attraction at Canada’s Wonderland.

Leviathan at Canada’s Wonderland is a symbol of engineering excellence and a testament to the thrill and excitement that giga coasters can offer. Its combination of towering height, high speed, and airtime, along with its subtle theming, makes it a standout attraction and a hallmark of the park’s roller coaster collection.
