Construction Update: Leviathan construction has been completed and you can see sample video of Leviathan’s first test run!
Here is the definition if GIGACOASTER in Wikipedia:
“A Giga Coaster is a complete-circuit roller coaster with a height or drop greater than 300 feet. The term was coined by a Cedar Point and Intamin AG partnership after the construction of Millennium Force. So far, there are only three Giga coasters worldwide:Millennium Force at Cedar Point, Steel Dragon 2000 at Nagashima Spa Land in Japan, and Intimidator 305 at Kings Dominion. Millennium Force and Intimidator 305 were built by Intamin AG while Steel Dragon 2000 was built by Chance-Morgan. However, there will be more Giga coasters to come in the future like Leviathan at Canada’s Wonderland that is being built by Bolliger & Mabillard.“Ride layout
After departing from the station, the train will immediately begin to climb the chain lift hill. Once the train reaches the top of the 306-foot (93 m) lift, the train drops back drown to the ground on a 80 degree angle reaching speeds of up to 92 miles per hour (148 km/h).Following the first drop, the track will curve upwards into a 164-foot (50 m)-tall overbanked banked turn to the right before dropping again and racing through a sweeping high-speed turn to the left at approximately 76 miles per hour (122 km/h).The exit of the first high speed turn will lead directly into a 183-foot (56 m)-tall camelback, followed by a 147-foot (45 m)-tall, 115 degree hammerhead turn.Both of these elements will exist above the guest parking lot.After exiting the hammerhead turn, the train will enter a second high-speed curve this time at a speed of approximately 60 miles per hour (97 km/h). Then, the train will traverse a smaller, 124-foot (38 m)-tall camelback leading towards the final element of the ride.A third high-speed turn is the final element of the ride. It will bend to the left and lead directly into the brake run and into the station.
