We knew that our neighbors to the north were up to no good with their latest roller coaster, and now the time has finally arrived for coaster crazies to take it for a spin.
It seems like quite some time since we first heard of the country’s biggest and baddest coaster, but it’s all going to be worth it when it makes its debut later this week. Christmas comes early for coaster fans this year—May 6 to be specific—as that’s when Leviathan is set to debut at Canada’s Wonderland.
CBC News got a sneak peek at the new ride—see the video above—and it’s clear that this thing means serious business. The roughly 306-foot drop looks pretty intense even from the comfort of your couch, and let’s not even begin to discuss the 80-degree drop angle.
The twists and turns on this coaster will slow things down slightly, but that’s not going to save you from the top speeds of around 93 miles per hour. This is definitely something to ride first thing In the morning prior to loading up on the chicken fingers and cotton candy.
Leviathan is the largest coaster up in Canada pretty much no matter how you measure things, but to us it looks like its clearly one of the best options in North America—or maybe the world. Tickets to the park start at just about $40 if you order in advance online, so we can’t imagine not visiting sooner than later—Toronto’s not that far away.
