They do everywhere but with this, Soaring Timbers and some of their other recent additions I feel like they're pushing it really hard at Wonderland. I sort of feel like they're trying to make everything feel as Canadian as possible but it's a really cliche Canadian theme. Just theme everything to timber, pine trees and rocks. Oh... and put a f*cking bear out front for no reason. Canadians love bears. The waterslide? I don't know, name it... Muskoka plunge. Google says that Muskoka is a place in Canada. It's perfect. Market research complete. 99% of park guests arrive to the park riding a moose. They love that sh*t. :lol:

Ziz is hopefully the name of next year's kiddie area expansion.
"Next, we are going to solicit the children of strangers so that we can go on a ride designed for children. This is so I can post online and impress other people who are very good at procuring unfamiliar children in order to go on rides designed for children, and thus have a higher arbitrary number than me."

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Canada's Wonderland is going through what KD went through; A coaster drought.

And the GP is ANGRY. As if they were expecting a coaster with no teasers and no construction.
Coaster Count: 107
Favorite Steel: Fury 325/Favorite Wood: Boulder Dash
Home Park: Kings Dominion
Worst Coaster: Ninja (SFOG)

Lumberjack looks good. This park just kills it in the flat ride department. The variety (and quality!) they have is outstanding. They could add 5 more roller coasters back-to-back and still be a well-rounded park. Impressive!

I see tons of whiny enthusiasts bitching on their Facebook page. "The GP" seems fine.

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.

Can anyone please tell me how to get a zillion points on Wonder Mountain Guardian. The most I seem to be able to get is around 250,00.
Thanks.

Looks like teasing for 2019 has started really early with the rumours of a hotel and coaster coming in 2019.

errr... uhhh... (taken at Wonderland, lol) -- so ridiculous. also: we watched the the Cirque Canadien show, it was absolutely hilarious. The stereotypes, just, wow... hockey players making music with their sticks? Check. Raccoons doing sketch comedy? Check. Lumberjacks doing flips? Check.
