“Vaughan, ON (August 18, 2011) – In 2012, Canada’s Wonderland will unveil one of the biggest and tallest roller coasters in the world: Leviathan. When the Park opens in May 2012, Leviathan will dominate the Park’s landscape, taking riders to breathtaking heights and speeds never experienced before at Wonderland.

The excitement begins on Leviathan’s first lift hill as riders climb to a record breaking height of 306 feet (93.3M) followed by an exhilarating 80 degree drop. Reaching a top speed of 148 kilometers per hour, riders will experience extreme coaster thrills on 5,486 feet (1,672M) of track that includes a series of giant camelback hills reaching heights up to 180 feet (54.9M), and an astonishing overbanked hammerhead turn at 115 degrees that will cross above the Park’s front gate at 147 feet (44.8M) high.

“Leviathan will be our 16th coaster and now positions Canada’s Wonderland as one of the top three coaster destinations in the world.” said Raffi Kaprelyan, Vice President and General Manager, Canada’s Wonderland. “We will go higher, longer, and faster than ever before when we launch Leviathan in 2012. With the addition of this new coaster and our diverse collection of rides, shows and attractions, we continue to show why Canada’s Wonderland is the destination of choice for those seeking world class thrills and family entertainment.”

Leviathan is designed and manufactured by Bolliger & Mabillard, of Monthey, Switzerland. The highly recognized industry leader in roller coaster development also constructed Behemoth, which premiered at Canada’s Wonderland in May 2008.

Construction is well underway at the park, with a completion date of May 2012. Guests who would like to experience Leviathan before the Park opens next year can visit leviathan.canadaswonderland.com to view ride renderings, specifications, construction updates, and experience a virtual ride simulation.”

Are you ready? Leviathan is unleashed in 2012! http://leviathan.canadaswonderland.com

Joshua Walters: On Being Just Crazy Enough!

TALKS | IN LESS THAN 6 MINUTES

About This

At TED’s Full Spectrum Auditions, comedian Joshua Walters, who’s bipolar, walks the line between mental illness and mental “skillness.” In this funny, thought-provoking talk, he asks: What’s the right balance between medicating craziness away and riding the manic edge of creativity and drive?

About Joshua Walters

Joshua Walters is a bipolar comedian whose work explores language, creativity, beatboxing and madness

Transcript

My name is Joshua Walters. I’m a performer.

(Beatboxing)

(Laughter)

(Applause)

But as far as being a performer, I’m also diagnosed bipolar. I reframe that as a positive, because the crazier I get onstage, the more entertaining I become. When I was 16 in San Francisco, I had my breakthrough manic episode in which I thought I was Jesus Christ. Maybe you thought that was scary, but actually there’s no amount of drugs you can take that can get you as high as if you think you’re Jesus Christ.

(Laughter)

I was sent to a place, a psych ward, and in the psych ward, everyone is doing their own one-man show. (Laughter) There’s no audience like this to justify their rehearsal time. They’re just practicing. One day they’ll get here. Now when I got out, I was diagnosed and I was given medications by a psychiatrist. “Okay, Josh, why don’t we give you some — why don’t we give you some Zyprexa. Okay? Mmhmm? At least that’s what it says on my pen.” (Laughter) Some of you are in the field, I can see. I can feel your noise. The first half of high school was the struggle of the manic episode, and the second half was the overmedications of these drugs, where I was sleeping through high school. The second half was just one big nap, pretty much, in class. When I got out I had a choice. I could either deny my mental illness or embrace my mental skillness.

(Bugle sound)

There’s a movement going on right now to reframe mental illness as a positive — at least the hypomanic edge part of it. Now if you don’t know what hypomania is, it’s like an engine that’s out of control, maybe a Ferrari engine, with no breaks. Many of the speakers here, many of you in the audience, have that creative edge, if you know what I’m talking about. You’re driven to do something that everyone has told you is impossible.

And there’s a book — John Gartner. John Gartner wrote this book called “The Hypomanic Edge” in which Christopher Columbus and Ted Turner and Steve Jobs and all these business minds have this edge to compete. A different book was written not too long ago in the mid-90s called “Touched With Fire” by Kay Redfield Jamison in which it was looked at in a creative sense in which Mozart and Beethoven and Van Gogh all have this manic depression that they were suffering with. Some of them committed suicide. So it wasn’t all the good side of the illness.

Now recently, there’s been development in this field. And there was an article written in the New York Times, September 2010, that stated: “Just Manic Enough.” Just be manic enough in which investors who are looking for entrepreneurs that have this kind of spectrum — you know what I’m talking about — not maybe full bipolar, but they’re in the bipolar spectrum — where on one side, maybe you think you’re Jesus, and on the other side maybe they just make you a lot of money. (Laughter) Your call. Your call. And everyone’s somewhere in the middle. Everyone’s somewhere in the middle.

So maybe, you know, there’s no such thing as crazy, and being diagnosed with a mental illness doesn’t mean you’re crazy. But maybe it just means you’re more sensitive to what most people can’t see or feel. Maybe no one’s really crazy. Everyone is just a little bit mad. How much depends on where you fall in the spectrum. How much depends on how lucky you are.

Thank you.

(Applause)
