The 2014 Theme Park Insider Tournament: Behemoth vs. Leviathan
Written by Robert Niles
Based on the thousands of reader ratings that Theme Park Insider readers have submitted over the past couple years, it's clear that our readers love Bolliger & Mabillard roller coasters — especially B&M's hyper models. Tall, fast, smooth and offering plenty of airtime, the B&M hyper appeals to fans who want a thrilling physical ride experience without head-banging restraints or stomach-churning inversions.Tweet
A theme park pretty much guarantees itself a hit when it installs a B&M hyper. But, so far, there's only one theme park in the world that's gone for a sequel, offering its fans two B&M hypers.
That's Canada's Wonderland, in Toronto, and its two B&M hypers face off today to determine which will be North America's sole quarterfinalist in this year's Theme Park Insider Tournament, which features top theme park rides in parks outside the United States.
Our vote today features Behemoth, a 2008 hyper that reaches 230 feet with a top speed of 77 mph.
And the opponent?
It's Leviathan, opened in 2012, with a height of 306 feet and a top speed of 92 mph.
Time to vote! The winner advances to the semifinal round of the roller coaster bracket.
Tomorrow: Back to the dark ride bracket for Mystic Manor versus Pooh's Hunny Hunt.
