Where/how did you get that picture of it? Why is it there (at that event/place) anyways?
> CW 2010: 9 [tried Drop Zone! :D]

^It's called the IAAPA 2008 (International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions) held at many convention centres across the world, this one I believe was at the Orange County Convention Center in Central Florida (very close to SeaWorld Orlando). Inside, thousands of business owners, exhibitors, buyers, members, and press were in attendance. This is heaven!

Hey everyone, just so you know, I still haven't been on Behemoth, but I'm going this Friday with my school. (omg 5 hour drive). Anyways, I want to know if it's better on the front or the back, for my first time. I love the airtime at the back, but at the same time, I want to see everything in front of me. Any suggestions? Oh, and also, I will be there by by 10:30 am-11:00am, so, is there a good chance that I'll have to wait more than an hour to ride. (BTW, I saw that it's your behemothon on Friday as well, if you see a guy with a half blond, half black mohawk its me ;D)

The back ride is the best, in my opinion. The view of the front of the train, meh, not that great. Recently the wait for the back has become longer than the front at times. If you're going on a Friday, I wouldn't worry about the crowds too much, but the most you'll probably wait in line if it is busy, is 1 hour. And, Behemothon is on Saturday :P.

Yeah the back has a much better drop but the front has better airtime, take your pick.

Actually, when the coaster is running without much trimming and fast, there is longer and just as intense airtime in the back, and the drop seems faster (but really isn't, obviously), and is much better.

My wife and I visited CW two weeks ago on our roadtrip through the USA and Canada.
We we're really looking forward to riding Behemoth... and actually it was a disappointment.

The coaster was slow and uninspired.
On the way back from the turnaround, the ride is drowning in trims and the part after the midcourse brakes is only added just to increase the ride's capacity by adding more trains.

As much as we expected Behemoth to be a great ride, in our eyes it wasn't.
We rode it a couple of times to give ourselves a chance to like it... nope.

From all the B&M's we have ridden so far this was surely the dullest one.

Hey, we all have opinions. I think Behemoth is a great ride. And the Mid- Course Brake run isn't to increase the ride capacity, it's there so:

1. You don't knock out in the helix.

2. To safely operate 3 trains (Blocks).

The trims are just there to moderate the speed and to prolong the life of the ride (Less wear and Tear).

I have a few theories as to why you didn't liek it very much:
1. If it was early morning of cold it is always VERY slow and laggy and boring.
2. They just put new wheels on it that needed breaking in.
3. You sat near the front, which is actually pretty boring and feels very slow.
