Leviathan concept art

Canada's Wonderland has begun testing its 306-feet-tall Leviathan roller coaster, which is due to make its debut at the park on April 27, 2012.

Leviathan's circuit was completed in early February, and with trains now racing around the track the ride appears to be on course to meet its planned opening date. The coaster features an 80-degree first drop, and an overbanked turn that will provide riders with a sense of weightlessness.

The test run footage was captured by YouTube user kunpc1, and is embedded below:

Leviathan will become the sixteenth rollercoaster at Canada's Wonderland, placing the park third in the "most coasters at a theme park" charts behind Six Flags Magic Mountain and sister park Cedar Point. It has been designed by Bolliger & Mabillard, and will be the first roller coaster manufactured by the Swiss company to top the 300-feet mark.
