A lot of times people are at Canada’s Wonderland and they look at Leviathan and Behemoth and say: Aren’t they the same? I’ll just ride Behemoth because the wait is shorter and the color scheme is cooler! – GP
Well, actually there is a HUGE difference between the two and if you learn all the facts about them, you will know what to expect! The reason us coaster enthusiasts know which one to ride first is that we know what it will be like compared to the other! I will be dueling ride information with two rides into this!
Leviathan at Canada’s Wonderland is one of the two biggest roller coasters as well as Hyper coasters at Canada’s Wonderland in Ontario, Canada! In this blog post, you will learn tons of information about this ride!
This coaster is compared to the Behemoth, another coaster like this at Canada’s Wonderland! The difference is it is newer by 4 years, and much taller & faster!
Here are the stats of the ride:
Height: 306 feet
Drop: 306 feet
Length: 5,486 feet
Speed: 92 miles per hour
Duration: 3 minutes and 28 seconds
Drop Angle: 80 degrees
Now, onto Behemoth! Behemoth opened 4 years earlier then Leviathan and shares similar characteristics and elements, but TOTALLY different stats.
Now, let’s take a look at the stats.
Height: 230 feet
Drop: 230 feet
Length: 5,318 feet
Speed: 77 miles per hour

Now here is the stats side by side! Next to both of them is a comparison of the difference between the older coaster (Behemoth) and the newer coaster (Leviathan)!
