Leviathan concept art

Canada's Wonderland has released a "point-of-view" video of its new roller coaster for the 2012 season, Leviathan, ahead of its opening date on April 27.

The video, embedded below, offers a front-row perspective from one of Leviathan's trains as it undergoes a test run. The coaster began testing last week, and appears to be on track to open alongside the rest of Canada's Wonderland for the start of the park's new season.

The POV video shows off Leviathan's 306-feet-tall lift hill, along with its 80-degree first drop. The ride will hit a top speed of 90 miles per hour at the bottom of this drop, before traversing a series of "airtime" hills and overbanked turns:

The new addition will become the sixteenth roller coaster 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 is the first 300-feet-plus coaster to be designed by leading Swiss manufacturer Bolliger & Mabillard.
