^For the silly Americans that don't understand the metric system, 4.5 meters per second is about 10 mph. So, in other words, it's going to take forever to get to the top.

Just a quick update. I'm at CW now for a Georian College presentation and Dave Phillips (VP Marketing) just told us that water dummy testing on Leviathan is set to begin today. I have some (not so great) photos of the station and will try to get some photos of the dummy testing if it starts before we leave!

Thanks Steve :P It just means you'll have that much more time to realize how high up you are!

Update! Leviathan made its successful first test run at 6:17PM! Video to come tonight!

Here it is! Leviathan's first full-circuit test! Sorry it's shaky, I had to run half way around the parking lot to get the video from this angle.

Wow...wicked loud even for a Beemer. Looks like it'll pack some nice ejector on the first speedhill. Can't wait to see what this beast looks like during the summer.

Gahhhh, that lift is so wonderfully torturously slow! And did it seem like the trims noticeably slow the train down, or was it just because, y'know, this is the first time it's ever run the course ever? Either way, it can only get faster from here! :airtime:

The "roar" is definitely sweet on that first drop! I hope to get some much better video of testing over the next little while. It only tested once tonight.
