The Behemoth at Canada's Wonderland



On Aug. 15th 2008 I’ve finally got to ride The Behemoth at Cedar Fair’s Canada’s Wonderland.

On my way to the top, I serious had second thoughts about going through with the ride, but it way too late. We were arriving at the peak way faster than I expected. Now it’s important for all of you to know that the BEHEMOTH is NOT a rollercoaster but a HYPERCOASTER.

A hypercoaster can mean one of two things;

1. A “style/model” of roller coaster that incorporates three features:
– An initial drop and/or
lift hill of 200–299 feet
– Lacks any
inverting elements
– Features a lift hill, not a
launch

2. A height classification of roller coasters that incorporates only one of the above features, a lift hill/drop of 200–299 feet. Because of the more common usage of the term “Hypercoaster” for a style of coaster, the term “
Megacoaster” is more appropriate for height classification.
