The 2014 Theme Park Insider Tournament: Leviathan vs. Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars
Written by Robert Niles
We're one vote away from setting the final match-up in the Best Roller Coaster bracket of the 2014 Theme Park Insider Tournament, which is honoring the best theme park attractions outside the United States. Today, we're voting on two very different ride experiences, with Leviathan from Canada's Wonderland taking on Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars from Hong Kong Disneyland.Tweet
It's battle between two of the best new coasters of 2012, illustrating again that newer is very often better with roller coasters, where years of track wear can render once-popular coasters unrideable. But which of these two smooth new coasters most makes you want to ride?
In round one, Leviathan defeated its Canada's Wonderland sibling Behemoth, while Big Grizzly Mountain took out fellow themed coaster Formula Rossa from Ferrari World Abu Dhabi. Follow those links for ride descriptions and analysis, and enjoy the on-ride videos below:
