Leviathan is a steel roller coaster in the Medieval Faire section of the park at Canada's Wonderland in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada. It is the first roller coaster made by Swiss manufacturer Bolliger & Mabillard to exceed the 300-foot mark. At 5,486 feet (1,672 m) long, 306 feet (93 m) tall, and with a top speed of 92 miles per hour (148 km/h), Leviathan is the tallest and fastest roller coaster in Canada.
Leviathan is also ranked as the seventh tallest, and the eighth fastest roller coaster in the World. The 16th roller coaster at Canada's Wonderland, the ride's track was completed in February 2012, with the first test run being completed on 15 March 2012. The coaster opened on 27 April 2012 to people holding season passes, and then opened to the general public on 6 May 2012.
Leviathan is Bolliger & Mabillard's tallest roller coaster to date. One cycle of the ride lasts about 3 minutes and 28 seconds.After departing from the station, the train makes a 180 degree turn to the right, then begins to climb the chain lift hill. Once the train reaches the top of the 306-foot (93 m) lift, it drops back down to the ground on a 80 degree angle reaching speeds of up to 92 miles per hour (148 km/h).
After exiting the hammerhead turn, the train enters a second high-speed curve, this time at a speed of approximately 60 miles per hour (97 km/h). The train then traverses a smaller, 124-foot (38 m)-tall camelback leading towards the final element of the ride, a third high–speed turn.The turn bends to the left and leads directly into the brake run and finally back into the station.
The steel track of Leviathan is 5,486 feet (1,672 m) long in length, the height of the lift is approximately 306 feet (93 m) and the angle of the first descent is approximately 80 degrees.The track is cyan in colour, with the supports being baby blue.
Unlike the two Intamin giga coasters (Millennium Force located at Cedar Point which was the world's first roller coaster to reach 300 feet, and Intimidator 305 located at Kings Dominion), Leviathan only uses a single standard chain for the lift hill.On 18 April 2012, Canada's Wonderland announced that a 100 foot tunnel would be placed at the bottom of the first drop of Leviathan.
