The trains look awesome and animated (fake) I didn't know they could test run in such cold weather. I think the train go too slow over the first hill. I would hate to see those the trim breaks on. I love that B&M roar

Here's your explanation: cold weather + first test run

Why do I still have a donkey title???

It's actually been pretty warm the last few days. So even though there's snow on the ground, it wasn't nearly as cold as you'd think in that video.

I'm sure they would have no problem testing even if the temps were below zero. Snow though would cause a problem.

The train is long, but the ride looks awesome, and so do the cars. That last hill after the helix's looks like it'll have some sweet ejector air.

During the summer when temperatures heat up i bet they'll be using those trims to slow the trains down, its already going considerably fast, they're really gonna be moving when the heat comes along.

The front two seats look like it would be a blast to ride there!

Very nice pictures!

I was driving home from work [which is across the street from Wonderland], and thought, "Hmmm, maybe I should go check out Behemoth." So I pulled a u-turn in the middle of a street and drove back to check it out. Lo and behold, I pulled into the Wonderland parking lot and Behemoth is heading up the lift hill!

Very pleasant surprise.

Looks really sleek running through the track, the curves can be described as "majestic", and the roar! That is a roar that I love. It was hauling A$$ through a few sections [the final bunny hops, most notably], and I think there will be a nice pop of air on a couple of the bigger hills [floater at best]. Hopefully they don't hammer the brakes too much.
