Mont-Royal, Quebec, December 2nd, 2022- Sea World Gold Coast today announced that it will open its newest family thrill ride, ‘Leviathan’ on Friday December 2nd at its theme park in Gold Coast Australia. The coaster will be the world’s first wooden coaster featuring four crossover sections. The custom theming is designed to represent a sea creature rising from the depths of New Atlantis, Leviathan reaches a top speed of 85km/h, rises over 32 meters high, and a total length of almost a kilometer of wooden track.
Village Roadshow CEO, Clark Kirby said The New Atlantis precinct is a game changer for Sea World with the three world-class rides complimented by unparalleled ride theming and immersive guest experiences. “I am incredibly proud and excited to officially open the Leviathan at Sea World, our team and the ride manufacturer, Martin & Vleminckx have done an outstanding job in creating this truly unique ride experience,” he said. “The Leviathan is a spectacular experience with guests embarking on a journey from the moment they enter the precinct passing by an enormous 9-metre Atlantean warrior statue to enter the ride queue which features incredible theming and state-of-the-art technology to fully-immerse them in an underwater utopian before they brave the 909 metre long wooden coaster.”
The roller coaster even features the last vehicle facing backwards giving guests a unique ride not found anywhere else in Australia. “This isn’t your average amusement park ride. ‘Leviathan’ is an intense and thrilling experience from start to finish!” says Chuck Bingham, Senior Vice President of Martin & Vleminckx, “With its combination of speed, height and twists, we know it will appeal to riders young and old alike.”
Designed in conjunction with The Gravity Group, Leviathan marks another milestone for industry leading manufacturer and installer Martin & Vleminckx.
