  1. Sure, I haven't been on hundreads of coasters around the world, however, my opinion is not biased. I like what I like...and from what I've ridden (Cedar Point, Darien Lake, Great Escape, La Ronde, and Kings Island), this is tops for me. Not cause it's my home park, not cause it's our first major coaster, and not because of anything other then the fact that essentially from start to finish (MCBR and helix excluded) it's a fun ride. Trust me, the time leading up to the day I'd finally be able to ride this, I started to be very skeptical..."was the air going to be good? Was the wait going to be worth it? Will the new seating layout work in favor or against?". I went on without expecting anything close to what I'VE been on. MY expectations were exceeded...having been able to ride three times, once on each train nontheless...I can say from MY view it was better, as I've said, then anything else due mainly for the airtime. BTW, yes it is floater air and not ejector air, but lots of it. Air is air in my point of view. Someone coaster count, big or small, or someone's home park or not, shouldn't have influence on anyone's review. I can't speak for others who have only been to just CW who are going to be nothing but praise as they've never seen anything like this in their life, but for myself who has been on what, for many enthusiasts, is a top 10 if not top 3 coaster (being MF), I am happy with what CF has done here, even though I argue that this year was a poor year to build something like this as CW still has issues handling huge crowds, was excellent. Good on CF! Good on B&M! And if all the B&M Hyper rumors for KI come to life, then one can only hope that their coaster will be as good as ours. Just to clarify, my views and reviews are not based on home park bias, but simlpy on what I, as a rider and lover of coasters, likes. I am sure you will enjoy it a lot once you ride it. Well, up to the MCBR at least
  2. I'm sorry but..... LMAO... Yeah sounds like a bit of an overstatement... just a bit. Honestly, it's not an understatement...The airtime really was that good...the first hill and then the first hill after the hammerhead turn are the best...but for all 3 rides I got on yesterday the airtime was great... The line at the end of the night was estimated to be 3hr30min - 4hrs...we got in the line just before they closed the line off...we ended up getting on in 2hr 10min...they ran all 3 trains very well and I think that helped as well...we got on so quick in fact that were were off the ride by 9:40 and the line was still open still open so we ran back in for a thrid ride, which ended up being the last train of the night. It was a great way to end the night, pulling back into the station our train tried the "One More Time" chant...didn't work but it was a good effort. Overall, I'd give the ride a 9 or 9.5 out of 10...only thing that slightly hurts it is just as the helix gets forcefull it pulls out...wish it could've gone a little longer on the helix but airtime everywhere...and good forces on the hammerhead... But like I said, people view rides differently however I haven't heard one bad review yet. CW finally has a winner on it's hand and I think the TPR guys will now have a better reason to come up here other then the crazy donut flipper
  3. Everyone is entitled to their opinion...it's the beauty of free speech...My last ride the ride op locked the lap bar tighter then my first two rides, however i still had great airtime. Don't get me wrong, the drop, hill and speed of MF is better, but for me, airtime is what I crave and this was an airtime machine...I have been on a lot of coasters as well, and comparing it to MF (which is still ranked high up there on the lists) it was a more fun experience for me due to the airtime... Everyone has what they like, and I am not saying that anyone has to agree...but regardless, it is a great ride and not a single person walked out there disliking it or being angry they waited for 3 or 4 hrs.
  4. Just got home from the park...I will most more in depth report but here are some notes and impressions. 1. got to ride 3 times today...once at opening took a 1hr wait front seat, second ride was after what were were told was going to be 3 or 3 and a half hour wait by Nick (awesome ride op working the front of the train all night cept when he had to shut the line down at 7:30 to new riders, second ride was in front as well, and then we noticed they started letting people get in again so we went for our third ride. Ended up being the LAST train of the night just around 10:15pm...it was a picture perfect wait to end the night..and yes in the front again. 2. AIRTIME AIRTIME AIRTIME, can't stress it enough. 3. Love the new area, however i strongly dislike the sign. Somehow it doesn't scream BEHEMOTH to me enough. 4. Great DJ even though he was only filling in...informed me he's actually the manager for Splash Works... 5. The crew...amazing loading times and cycle times...great job team...and Chris, who looked like a manager was doing a great job stopping line jumpers which was a BIG problem tonight. Not that it was expected, but several people were removed from the ride throughout our time there for line jumping and I praise CW for doing something about this and not ignoring the issue. So to sum it up, as you can tell, i LOVE this ride. Gotta be honest, it's probably better, for my at least, then Millenium Force...simply because of how much air this ride gives. Photos and videos will follow tomorrow once I recover and get some much needed rest. Goodnight and RIDE ON!!!
  5. Ya, come opening day...I am sure once the non believers get on and ride, I think, and hope, we will all be in for a surprise.... I cannot wait to ride this beast...it's been far too long without a quality coaster in our park. We have a lot of coasters and I love them all...okay well minus Tomb Raider (now Time Warp...wish it could take a time warp back and away from us)...but this ride will own them all!!!
  6. coastrfreak2000 I am thinking the same...up to the turnaround everything is great....but it does seem to lose a bit of speed coming back...HOWEVER, remember 1) they are still testing everything out, and 2) it was running in the rain, so perhaps the trims were harder today...who knows.
  7. Here is a link to the video I shot. Sorry for the delay. - Joshua McLachlan
  8. Just got back from processing my seasons pass at Wonderland today, and here are some updated photos and a video will follow. Here's the view of Behemoth from the front gate (sorry for the blur, I was walking at the time) Here is a great overview ride finale and train the brake run. Closer view of the finale. Curvy helix goodness. MMMMmmm helix!!! Station (sorry digital zoom) Mmmm B&M goodness. The video will follow soon, once I upload it. Enjoy and 13 days and counting till SPPN.
  9. Personally I'll wait as long as it takes to find out the information as I know Robb and the guys at TPR are going to put together an amazing day. The first TPR event in Canada...that alone is gets me excited. It's only 16 days left here until Season Pass preview night, which I will be attending and providing a Photo TR for... So TPR, keep up the great work and we all look forward to what will be an amazing event. - Josh
  10. Just curious if there was any sort of update on this event such as pricing or when we need to order by...very excited for this event. - Josh
  11. They've begun testing the ride now...there are two videos now on youtube...am i able to post the links here or not?
  12. Ya, and the fact that it's planning on hitting 1.30 or 1.40 by summer is insane...see, this is why i don't drive...lol...plus living in Toronto, no real need to... I can't wait for this event...Behemoth has started its pull through testing now.
  13. Ya should be a great day...civic holiday + ert + lunch = much better day then being at work.... Might i suggest trying to get a tour of Wonder Mountain, as in, the inside of it? Thunder Run would be quite neat to see...
  14. Count me in...guess thats why you didn't reply to my email Robb...never saw this post till now... Should we keep an eye here for updates?
  15. So me and a buddy went up to the park today in anticipation of the topping off of the lift. We were there between 1pm and 4pm.. so here's some of the stuff we saw. 1. First the final section of the support was still not in place when we arrived. http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/ee300/pcwnut/DSCN5577.jpg http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/ee300/pcwnut/DSCN5596.jpg 2. This is it guys, the top of Behemoth, right in front of me...how tempting it was to touch. http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/ee300/pcwnut/DSCN5599.jpg http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/ee300/pcwnut/DSCN5600.jpg http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/ee300/pcwnut/DSCN5607.jpg http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/ee300/pcwnut/DSCN5609.jpg http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/ee300/pcwnut/DSCN5615.jpg 3. A view through the mess of track and supports that are waiting to come together for this beauty of a coaster. http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/ee300/pcwnut/DSCN5620.jpg 4. Station seemed to be a central hub of activity while we were there. http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/ee300/pcwnut/DSCN5632.jpg 5. This seriously is gorgeous, no word of a lie, this coaster is bringing sexy back. http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/ee300/pcwnut/DSCN5636.jpg 6. A shot through the houses in the area...bet they are a happy bunch right now. Wink http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/ee300/pcwnut/DSCN5677.jpg 7. Two quick shots coming back onto Hwy 400 http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/ee300/pcwnut/DSCN5690.jpg http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/ee300/pcwnut/DSCN5699.jpg 8. While we were there...we noticed this... http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/ee300/pcwnut/DSCN5652.jpg http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/ee300/pcwnut/DSCN5651.jpg ...yes it's already scratched hehehe...still gorgeous though. 9. Right before we left they starting unloading the final straight lift piece and top of the lift for prep for the long ride up to the top. http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/ee300/pcwnut/DSCN5663.jpg Till next time...Enjoy!!!
  16. Dumb question but when it says Double Occupancy thing, does that mean its like 2000 for two people or still 2000 each? I am confused on that.
  17. I didn't get a pass this season as I couldn't justify it for a couple new restaurants, however with this rumor I would definitly buy one next year. Has anyone actually seen this thing in the parking lot? "2008 - New B&M Coaster - Semi-Confirmed - (6/15/07) Screamscape sources have confirmed that the park has plans to build a new coaster for 2008. The station will be located across from the Italian Job station and if the rumors are right, this will be a B&M coaster standing approximately 200 feet tall. While this could be a Hypercoaster, I’ve also heard that the layout appeared to be on the short and simple side, which could also be an indicator that it may be a Dive Machine instead. "
