Behemoth is a Bolliger & Mabillard hyper roller coaster with staggered seating located at Canada's Wonderland in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada. It was previously the tallest and fastest roller coaster in Canada, but lost the title to Leviathan in 2012, which is also located at Canada's Wonderland.[1] Behemoth has been praised by critics and was the former flagship attraction of the park. The park's current flagship attraction is Leviathan. It is the first B&M hyper to use staggered seating.

The ride was installed by Martin & Vleminckx.[2]


On August 27, 2007, Canada's Wonderland announced that they would be adding Behemoth.[3] The ride opened on May 4, 2008.[4]

The trains received new seat belts during the 2014 season.[5]




3 trains with 8 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 4 across in a single row, for a total of 32 riders per train. A car from Behemoth was on display at B&M's IAAPA 2008 booth.
