Only problem I have with this coaster is that it takes 55 FREAKING SECONDS TO REACH THE TOP... *Pant, Pant*

I agree the time on the lift is a bit long, plus, as RCoaster pointed out, look at the water dummy on the lower left corner of the video. The ride has a total of 4 airtime elements (ARG). To me, that's no different than MF. A GREAT ride no doubt. VERY re-rideable too. I personally was just hoping for more.

Now just imagine the queue line for opening day... Neutral I sure hope CW has "The Fast Lane" for Leviathan so I don't have to wait two hours MINIMUM for my trip ...

Leviathan is not only testing, but it is testing with HUMAN riders, as you can briefly see from this video. It looks like a fun ride no doubt - enjoy

That first drop and turn combo look fierce but then it just fades out after that imo still should be a fun ride no doubt

It definitely will be fun ! I think the first drop/turn look great, but almost identical to MF, and agree, just like MF, the ride fades over time.

Screamscape reported today that the trench at the bottom of the first drop will in fact be a 100 foot tunnel - SWEET !

I think the point of the tunnel is more visual as a head chopper. Goliath and Bizarro have very short tunnels, while this one actually looks long enough to add some theming or special effects if that wanted.

From Screamscape:

Park News - (4/24/12) The bidding war over the first ride seats on Levithan ended earlier today. From what I’m told the highest bid was $1000 for a seat, and totaled up the auction raised over $63,000.

The trains are very well themed and look great. Congrats to CW for raising so much money for a worthy cause. I can understand the strong interest in riding and can't wait to hear some ride reviews.

Ugh this looks so awesome. I have always thought that the cars Levi has would be way better than the cars Goliath had.... if Knott's ever ended up following through with their giga/hyper rumor I was hoping for these kind of cars.... (;

Leviathan's media day was this week and ride reviews are starting to come it. Many compare it to MF and will wait until I ride it personally to chime in.

I did find this news report of the ride, which includes 3 GREAT videos. When you play the video, you first get the news story - but - after it ends you get the entire reverse POV of the ride - and then - an entire POV.

I will say two (2) of the riders are women with long hair, and let you be the judge during the reverse POV on the airtime.

I hope they add some themeing in the tunnel, and agree it does add a good head chopper effect regardless.

Screamscape shared this funny video of a news report and worth sharing here as well if you missed it.

Great Funny onride video of Leviathan

WOW - you never cease to amaze Chris. It's great to see the finished tunnel in a POV, and completely agree (meh) - next....

jp - There is nothing like being 300 feet in the air, but to get all that knetic energy and do virtually nothing with it is frustrating from an enthusiasts point of view. Glad to see after 11 years B&M can finally duplicate MF. (harsh, but true) affraid
