A Great Day In addition to contributing to child healthcare research, as a successful bidder, you’ll be among the first in the world to ride Leviathan on April 27, 2012. On Leviathan, riders will 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. It doesn’t get better than this – thrills, fun and giving back!
