It is a giga coaster... Oh my god. Where is the thread where we bashed B&M making a hyper? We should all get walloped for not believing that it would happen.

The 115 deg. overbanked turn on the "smoking area" (for weed);)
Looks absolutly crazy. A strange choice considering Behemoth. But how can you be mad about Leviathan?

Who's coming to my place for back bacon?

Looks fun and better than CW's other B&M since there's no midcourse brake, but not enough to the layout. Not as impressive as I was expecting.

I agree Matt. It just looks like a simple mixture of Nitro and Goliath from SFOG. Good try but I don't think it can stand up to the ride excitements of Intamin Giga's

I really don't get this.  I have to agree with Mr Alvey on this one and go with the idea that it wasn't intended for this park.  Knotts makes MUCH more sense.  I'm sure it will be a nice ride but they could have used that 28 million on something different.

The first drop is gonna be awesome with those clamshell restraints. I'm still heading up there next year. I need to check out those Canadain parks.

because I do not see how the park is spending 28 million on this. I think this is the only time I am going to say this, but I agree that Alvey's speculation makes a lot of sense. As much as he says he "thinks" that is the situation, I am sure he has sources that have told him. I doubt he made this up himself.

I think it is a little funny how in this animation right at the beginning you see Behemoth first and then Leviathan in the background, almost as if Behemoth was just mirrored.

I don't get the ginormouus brake run at the end. What the hell is the point of that? They could have added at least another 1000ft of track to the end of the ride. Still, I'm SO glad there is no midcourse brake. This is how it should be done. No buzzkill like Behemoth has.

The layout looks like it should have a 200ft lift at best. It looks so short for the given height.

I hope the Millennium Farce hills actually provide air. Matt is absolutely right that they could've added more to the ride. I nice few bunny hills like on Nitro and maybe a Goliath Helix to turn it back to the station, but that brake run looks to be about the length of Kingda Ka's and Top Thrill Dragster's, And you won't be running 120 mph into the brake run like either of the strata's.

Maybe there was supposed to be two helices and another hop after the flat part of the brake run, but then Cedar Fair ran out of budget and decided to just end it there until they can afford to finish off the ride. ;)

A little late on this one..just got back from VT and my Timber Ripper credit.
I just watched the POV and felt like there had to be more.
28 million for 1:12 second ride.  I suppose they are paying a premium for that xtra 100 feet?

Since I don't feel like searching for Alveys comment anyone want to post a link?

I can't now on my phone but basically you really have to wonder if that was supposed to be the end of the ride. Something doesn't add up.

Anyone who comes up for a road trip is invited to my place for drinks, and bbq.

The first drop with these resatraints is money! Anyone think the turnaround looks like the dive loop right after the drop on drachen fire?
