Without checking rcdb, i presume the ys drop is higher. This would mean more speed and a longer pullout. It would require a deeper tunnel if you started pullout after entering it.
If the tunnel is deeper than 60’ it would be considered a subway and be subject to service cuts, short turns, broken air conditioning and “tunnel fuzz”.
Hope that helps.

For some reason it still seems taller to me but I guess that could be because Valravn is part of a more competitive skyline.

Maybe it might have something to do with it being less overshadowed at a park like CW, vs CP.

That's not theming. It's shoring (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shoring).


It looked pretty high and permanent - could be both. Never thought about Shoring. Good catch.

I wasn't suggesting tunnel go deeper - rather start above ground mid-drop ala Sheikra

Wow! That's looks a lot better than a block of concrete eh?
But then again, Canada's Wonderland has never had a lot of theming anywhere. :mickey:

^ for an AMUSEMENT park, Canada’s Wonderland has some pretty great theming. Midevil Faire immediately comes to mind. The shops and what not all have that old English towne feel to them, which is modernized and emphasized with Leviathan’s station. The simple yet effective Canadiana theming is also evident through out the new Frontier Canada, and action zone definitely feels like action zone with how things are set up and organized. Just because it’s not Disney Quality does not mean it’s non-existent. Canada’s Wonderland is one of the most beautiful parks I’ve been to and I give some of that credit to its colorful and intracate nature. Even international street, it’s a phenomenal front entrance to the park! Darien Lake has a big ole alley of asphalt with two food stands and a gift shop that lead towards a small fountain and another gift shop. Canada’s wonderland probably has more stores and theming in its entry plaza than Darien Lake has in its entirety - and Darien Lake is technically referred to as “Darien Lake Theme Park Resort”, where wonderland is “Canada’s Premiere Amusement Park”. They know they aren’t about theming but they do it anyways!

Also looking at the natural beauty with multiple bodies of water that interact with rides, a forest like vibe that goes into Frontier Canada and both kids areas that makes you feel like you're not beside one of North America's busiest highways. All of the flowers that wow you when you enter the park is a nice addition too.

As well as it being centred around a mountain that makes Magic Mountain blush!
