Canada’s Wonderland 2012 Season Highlights

While it’s still a bit chilly here in Ontario, Canada’s Wonderland is getting ready to open for another fantastic season. If you haven’t heard, Canada’s tallest rollercoaster called Leviathan and a Dinosaur’s Alive exhibit are set to debut this year, in addition to a few brand new entertainment offerings. Here’s an overview of the 2012 season. If you’re a Season Passholder, the preview night is on April 27. For everyone else, the park begins normal operation on May 6.



Canada’s tallest rollercoaster opens in 2012! The excitement begins on Leviathan’s first lift hill as riders climb to a record breaking height of 306 feet (93.3M) followed by an exhilarating 80 degree drop. Reaching a top speed of 148 kilometers per hour, riders will experience extreme coaster thrills on 5,486 feet (1,672M) of track that includes a series of giant camelback hills reaching heights up to 180 feet (54.9M), and an astonishing overbanked hammerhead turn at 115 degrees that will cross above the Park’s front gate at 147 feet (44.8M) high.
