Having never been outside of the United States it was a little weird being
in another country. The road signs were in both English and French,
there were Tim Horton's everywhere and the people drove like lunatics.
I'm not trying to disparage my neighbors to the north but I grew up in Chicago
and Houston so I know crazy driving but around Toronto it's a whole new
level of lunacy. We been givimng Bratman crap for years as he shot
across four lanes of traffic on our Negative-G Road Trip back in 2010 to
hit an exit. We thought it was just him but the truth is that's just
the norm up there. So just imagine an expressway filled with cars
shooting from lane across lanes at high speed with optional turn signals
and by the time we got to Canada's Wonderland I needed plunge down three
hundred feet to take the edge off and relax.
Despite the drivers I love and want to visit any country with a view like
this. Leviathan is so big the park can't contain it as it stretches
out into the parking lot and over the entrance plaza to Canada's Wonderland.
So you're walking up to Canada's Wonderland what music do you think you'd
hear playing over the PA? Maybe "Oh Canada" or some Rush or Bratman's
favorite Canadian artist which is Brian Adams but what were we met with?
Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the USA" and James Brown's "Living in America".
It was kind of weird.
Oh they did play "Oh Canada" when the park opened for our second day at
the park and being polite guests as I told Bond beforehand to just to stand
there quietly and be respectful during it.
Leviathan is situated in the Medieval Fare section of the park and being
the really big new ride that it is there was a hell of a line stretching
way out into the midway.
