The Leviathan wooden roller coaster is officially open and is now the centerpiece of The New Atlantis area at Sea World in Australia. Keep scrolling for photos and videos.
The Leviathan wooden roller coaster takes guests on a thundering ride at speeds of almost 50 m.p.h. through turns, crossovers, drops, and dips. And for something totally different, two guests can sit in rear-facing seats, watching the curves fly by just beyond the Leviathan’s tail. Here’s the view:
- 105 feet tall
- 2,982 foot-long track
- Max Speed 49.7 mph
- 600,393 linear feet of timber used in the structure
- Two rear facing seats
“The Leviathan is a spectacular experience with guests embarking on a journey from the moment they enter the precinct passing by an enormous nine-meter Atlantean warrior statue to enter the ride queue,” said Village Roadshow CEO Clark Kirby. Village Roadshow is the parent company of Sea World Australia. Sea World has no affiliation with SeaWorld in America.
Kirby added, “I am incredibly proud and excited to officially open The New Atlantis at Sea World, our team have done an outstanding job in creating this truly unique precinct.”
The Vortex, a 59-foot-high pendulum swinging attraction, was the first to open in The New Atlantis, followed by The Trident, then Leviathan.
To coincide with the launch of The New Atlantis and to celebrate Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas now sailing from Brisbane, Sea World is running an in-park competition giving guests who visit in December 2022 and January 2023 an opportunity to explore the precinct and decipher a hidden message for the chance to win one of two eight-night South Pacific cruises from Brisbane.
