  1. So have you heard about the unsolicited bid from Sea World to buy Cedar Fairs? https://www.cinemablend.com/movies/the-seaworld-buy-out-of-cedar-fair-just-took-an-interesting-turn What do you think about it? How do you think it'll affect Canada's Wonderland? Is it good for us or not?
  2. They probably made that change cause of Covid19. Although I think it's great how the park has made use of the mountain the ride itself for me is blah and overrated, particularly for the low ride capacity and long line. First time I went on it I didn't know about that drop at the end so I took my then 9 year old son on it. Lets just say he's 12 now and I just got him to go on Ghoster Coaster again.
  3. I think I find that, at this early a stage, there's just nothing beyond wild speculation to go on so it's more of a tease to think tjese clues lead down a certain path.
  4. Yeah it said that to me too. I had to login and wait in the queue each time to book again.
  5. So what was ayone's experience reserving spots on the CW website? I found it rather crazy but the site worked well given the traffic. I signed on just after 8am (which is when it opened) and right away it said I was 22,758th in the queue. It took an hour for my turn to come up. I ended up booking six different days and I think that's the current limit for season pass holders.
  6. Am I the only one having a bit of a tough time picturing going on coasters like Yukon Striker and Leviathan with a mask on? There's gonna be a looooooot of masks falling off rides.
  7. [fbvideonew][/fbvideonew] ALso just a friendly tip to get and load the Presto card at least a few days in advance. These things have so many glitches you want to make sure they're working before being in a situation where the reader thinks the card is empty and you've got no change to board the bus.
  8. 1. There are a bunch around the park, but can't say how expensive it is compared to cheap rates. 2. There are public transit options, particularly in the summer. YRT (York Regional Transit), TTC (Toronto Transit Commission), and the GO (Government of Ontario) all serve a make=shift transit loop at the park. 3. Use this searchable calendar to see how busy the park is on any given date. Of course it can't predict the future but it gives you a good idea of how busy the park has been in the past on whatever days you're considering. (https://queue-times.com/parks/58/calendar/2019/12) If you're there on a day it's open 10-10 and you arrive before 10am so you can start working the busy rides right away before lines build you can fit everything in a day. Definitely takes some strategizing, though. 4. Lots. Blue Jays, Ripley's Aquarium, CN Tower, Hockey Hall of Fame, Legoland (right across from Wonderland), and more.
  9. Thanks for the photos. I've been curious about how it shaped up. My family wants to go.
  10. Double check the fine print of those FL+ tickets... if they are the same as mine (I bought them during a flash sale last summer) then they expired after labour day weekend. I went to use mine on Saturday that is when it was pointed out. They said the only thing they can do is refund it and then charge me the current cost of the pass $89ish. Luckily I had my family's season passes with me and none of them go on adult rides so I cashed in one of their FL+ due to my renewing our cards.
  11. You bought those from the flash sale last summer like I did. I used one but have one left and am going by myself to the park tomorrow to use it because I can't go the following weekend. Was hoping to go with someone but oh well.
  12. I understand what you mean. I bought a few FL+ tickets during a flash sale last summer/fall. They were half price and could buy four. I bought two. I also renewed all 5 family member season passes giving us FL+ tickets for each person but my kids are 4, 6, and 10, and my wife doesn't go on big rides so 4 go to waste. I learned though the you can give them to guests who you take with you, so that's what I did.
  13. I was never a fan of it to begin with. Never saw the appeal in it. That's just me though. I've also ear this event at other Cedar Fair parks are free, not an extra $30 plus dollars... not sure if that's true though.
  14. So I just read in the National Post that Six Flags has approached Cedar Fairs with a cash and stock offer to buy the chain. Nothing has been officially acknowledged. My question is lets say this becomes reality, what do you think it means to CW? How do you think CW will be treated compared to SF other properties... cause when I think of SF and Canada I think about how shoddy La Ronde is. CF has treated CW with good care in my opinion.
  15. I thought they were going to open some of the coasters where you can see what I at least thought was base heaters attached to the track in the stations of rides like Leviathan and Yukon Striker.
  16. They're probably trying to rev up interest in the Winterfest. I saw it and rolled my eyes... but it did look rather festive.
  17. Ah thanks for the explanation. I found the order lookup feature of the payment portal on the site but unfortunately I can't seem to make use of it because I don't have my order ID number. That would be contained in the email order confirmation which is what I can't find.
  18. Sorry, maybe I'm too tired... I'm not sure what you're suggesting...
  19. I got a bit of a dilemma... After I renewed my seasons pass for this year there was a promo where you can buy some FL+ tickets for half cost. I bought a few. I used one already but for the life of me I can't find the email or printed ticket so I can use the second one. I'm supposed to go with a friend tomorrow. Can the park find it somehow if I check in with customer service? Does anyone remember if that flash sale of FL+ passes was only for seasons pass holders or for anyone?
  20. If you add up the payment schedule for the monthly payments it'll add up to more then if you bought it outright... not much difference but it's just like how with insurance if you choose monthly payments there is a little premium... Wonderland just doesn't identify that when you agree to it.
  21. Leviathan and Behemoth you'll fit in but it's a bit of a pain to get the seatbelt on. Haven't been on Wonder Mountain Guardian for a few years so can't remember very well but when I was last on it I had no problem fitting. Some of Yukon Striker's seats have longer seatbelts... they may put you in one of those if it's too hard to buckle one of the normal ones in. The normal belts are black and the extended ones are dark red. I haven't been on Lumberjack or Soaring Timbers myself, mainly due to lack of interest, but the others are no issue at all. Like you, Soaring Timbers is known for it's extremely tight fit and it's not an experiment I think is worth trying.
  22. I'm about the same height but closer to 260lb and I fit on all the rides I go like going on. If there are certain rides you're thinking of list them and I'll tell you how well I fit on them, as I don't go on all the thrill rides.
  23. On another note, I have 3 FL+ passes from renewing my family's season passes for next year. My kids are 4,6,10 so they don't make use of them. I emailed customer service and they said I can use those FL+ passes on other guests as long as they are with me... but I can't use them on myself (doesn't make sense to me but whatever). Anyone interested in going before the park closes? I'll give a free FL+ pass.
