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 current flagship attraction is Leviathan. It is the first B&M hyper to use staggered seating.

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