Leviathan concept art

Canada's Wonderland has opened its new roller coaster for the 2012 season, Leviathan, which towers some 306-feet over the park.

Leviathan's trains hit a stop speed of 90 miles per hour at the base of its first drop, which is angled at a sharp 80 degrees. After racing through a 100-foot tunnel, riders then traverse a series of "airtime" hills and overbanked turns.

Theme Park Review was on hand to capture Leviathan in action in the video below:

The new addition to Canada's Wonderland is the first roller coaster built by leading Swiss manfucturer Bolliger & Mabillard to stand at more than 300-feet-tall. It has become the sixteenth roller coaster at the park, which now has more than any other park in the world apart from Cedar Point and Six Flags Magic Mountain.
