The Behemoth roller coaster is a steel coaster located in Canada’s Wonderland in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada. This particular coaster is a Hyper Coaster which has been designed and constructed by a company in Switzerland called Bolliger & Mabillard. The Behemoth is the tallest and fastest roller coaster in the whole of Canada. After a year and a half of preparation and development, Behemoth debuted in May of 2008.
The Behemoth’s high speeds and tall heights coupled with rapid changes in both directions and elevations means it is one of the most aggressive thrills in the entire park. Since the Behemoth is so fast and not too long it has a high turnover of passengers per hour making it one of the most efficient rides the park has ever seen. The Behemoth also has a very unique seating arrangement, in fact the seating arrangement has never before been used on any other coaster of this type, it ensures every rider has an awesome view that doesn’t compare with any other roller coaster!
The Behemoth will provide each and every rider with an experience lasting just over three minutes, each rider is also subjected to speeds of 125km/h or 77mp/h speeds, these monstrous speeds are achieved in a staggering 3.9 seconds, once the coaster is up to speed there are five air-time hills giving the rider a feeling of weightlessness then a hammerhead turn and two helixes follow after that!
The Behemoth has no minimum age requirement but it does have a height requirement that needs to be met before your allowed to use this awesome roller coaster, you have to reach the height of 137com or 54 inches otherwise you will have to watch from the side lines. Some people over a certain weight and size are also not allowed to ride this roller coaster as it may cause instability on the track.
Overall if you are looking for a ride after which you need to change your undies, this could be the one for you, there is plenty of airtime for you to feel like you are falling out of the train as well. We think this ride is absolutely awesome and deserves your time if your close by!
