One of only four giga coasters (full-circuit coasters between 300 and 399 feet in height) in existence as of 2014, Leviathan is the tallest coaster manufactured by Bolliger & Mabillard and a sight to behold.  Seating four across in eight rows, the train makes a right turn from the loading station before ascending a 306-foot chain lift hill.  The chain lift is impressively fast.  Once at the top, the train drops a precipitous 306 feet at an 80-degree angle into a tunnel, and what a drop!  It was breathtaking.  The initial drop is followed by an overbanked right turn and second drop (location of the on-ride camera), after which the train turns sharply left.  The left turn comes as a complete surprise and provides some good ejector airtime.   Another drop and the train shoots up into a camelback.  At one point it crosses the track.  There is no brake run until the conclusion of the ride, as the train is returning to the station. With multiple airtime hills (lots of floater airtime) hammerhead turn and maximum speed of 92 mph, the ride is first class from start to finish.  Leviathan is smooth, fast, furious and fun. 5 out of 5 stars.  For more information about rides at Canada’s Wonderland, visit www.canadaswonderland.com
