While not completely related to the operation of Canada's Wonderland, the park was used in a completely different way earlier this week to keep a tradition alive due to current COVID-19 restrictions i

Fahrenheit also has 8 or so more years of engineering evolution in it than MF. I'm all good with the chain lift, you don't have to worry about catastrophic mechanical failures like you do with the cables. Pretty much any model involving a cable with Intamin has had some sort of instance of catastrophic mechanical failure that could have possibly risked the safety of the guests. Examples, cable driven launched coasters, TTD, Kingdaka, Xcellerator (I am sure some incidents are missing here). Cable lifts, MF's cable has broken twice, possibly risking the safety of the riders. Drop towers with the the Kentucky Kingdom incident. In addition to the safety factor, the issue regarding reliability with Intamin coasters comes up as well.

 

I am challenged to think of a mechanical failure on a B&M coaster that has resulted in major injury or death, any ideas?

Since when did getting stuck on a lift hill = safety risk?

 

djw44 never said anything about being stuck on a lift hill, he is talking about cables snapping. Stop putting words in other people's mouths. Do you remember when Millennium Force's entire cable and catch car went over the first drop with the train? That is all that needs to be said.

I agree. The thread is about Canada's Wonderland, not Millennium Force and Intamin cables. Please stay on topic.

I remember a time when I considered CW to be a second-hand park and that even though I was lucky to be living close to a theme park, I always thought "Why couldn't I have been born into a family that lived in Florida or California?". All I could think about was how so many other enthusiasts had all these parks that were so much better than CW. Then Cedar Fair came along, and my perception changed with Behemoth and WindSeeker, but that nagging feeling was still there. Once Leviathan was announced, that feeling almost completley went away and now with this update, It's no longer there . I cannot wait to ride this in May and I really really hope it ends up being the most intense and awesome-ness filled machine that B&M has built in a long time.

You don't see any potential risk in flying high tension cables and shards of metal?

Not when the place the cable breaks is oh, 200ft BELOW me. And another hundred feet or more from any foot traffic. There is no safety concerns from a cable lift breaking. Only concerns are on cable LAUNCHes as seen with the snaps where the people got shards. But thats a completely different type of break. MF is only going 22mph. Not 122.

I think one thing for sure can be said about Leviathan, and that is it will definitely add an amazing visual as guests are coming into the park.

 

If you come from the right side of the lot, you will literally have to walk by and under this beast in order to get into the park.

 

Also because of its location, as you can see from some of my previous photos, its going to be a coaster photographer's wet dream come true with all the angles you can get of it.

Skyrush and Hershey park will out rank leviathan any day.

 

No offense but this is a CANADA'S WONDERLAND thread not a lets argue about Skyrush is better than Leviathan.

 

Agreed.

 

Hersheycoaster13, please do not make a post like this again in the future. It adds absolutely nothing to this thread and can only be misconstrued as an attempt to start a flame war.

Why don't you take a timeout from posting?

 

You would also do good to read over the site's TOS that you agreed to upon signing up. But most importantly, do not disrespect site moderators!

^ I was wondering the same thing....that overbanked turn and then that bunny hop afterwards could be outrageous if they they don't trim the crap out of the turn.

 

I will say that even though I agreed that this coaster is probably the most overhyped for 2012, seeing these pictures is starting to make me really wonder if I'm wrong...PLEASE prove me wrong B&M!
