Canada’s Wonderland will Build a Behemoth for the 2008Canada’s Wonderland has announced the details of their new roller coaster for 2008. It will be a B&M hyper coaster, as the ‘Net rumors suggested, and it will be named Behemoth. Hyper coasters feature drops of 200 feet (20 stories) or more and offer consecutive airtime packed hills. At 230 feet (70 meters) tall and speeds of 77 mph, Behemoth will be Canada’s tallest and fastest roller coaster. My first impressions after looking at the layout is that it resembles Nitro at Six Flags Great Adventure. As with most B&M coasters Behemoth should boast a smooth and satisfying ride. One important distinction will be the coaster’s unique trains. With a kind of wing formation, each car will have two seats in the middle-front and two on either side. This will likely allow an unobstructed view of the ride.
