  1. CANADA'S WONDERLAND TO ADD WET & WILD THRILLS WITH TWO NEW ATTRACTIONS IN 2017 VAUGHAN, ON, Aug. 26, 2016 /CNW/ - Canada's Wonderland announced today it will be showcasing two new unique and adrenaline-pumping attractions in 2017. With the addition of towering water slides in Splash Works and a new thrill ride that will be the first of its kind in North America, guests will experience two exhilarating parks and one memorable 2017 season. Muskoka Plunge, a 60 ft. (18 m) tall waterslide complex featuring four speed slides, will kick-off the summer fun in Splash Works. Riders will feel the adrenaline rush when they step into an enclosed launch chamber and suddenly plummet into a high-speed free fall through S-curves and 360° loops at speeds of approximately 40 km/h. For thrill-seekers that prefer to stay dry, Canada's Wonderland will be adding to its arsenal of world-class thrill rides with Soaring Timbers. This unique ride experience will send guests spiraling through the sky on two massive rotating gondolas that swing riders through sweeping arcs while rotating 360 degrees. Canada's Wonderland has also recently announced a limited time offer on 2017 Season Passes for only $68.99 ($21.00 less than the current Season Pass price). As an additional benefit to purchasing next year's Season Pass now, new Passholders will receive one free visit this year and renewing Passholders will receive one free 2016 Fast Lane Plus pass, valid for one day this season. For more information visit canadaswonderland.com. Canada's Wonderland is owned and operated by Cedar Fair Entertainment Company, a publicly traded partnership that is listed for trading on The New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "FUN." In addition to Canada's Wonderland, Cedar Fair owns and operates 10 other amusement parks, two water parks, one indoor water park, and five hotels. Cedar Fair also operates the Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park in California under a management contract. http://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/canadas-wonderland-to-add-wet--wild-thrills-with-two-new-attractions-in-2017-591385711.html The new Muskoka Plunge water slides coming to Canada's Wonderland in 2017.

  2. We have a test POV of the new SLC at Al-Zawraa Park. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=shSzafDbvlw Also, via SkyscraperCity, picture of the trains and as you can see in the overview the SLC appears to be part of a new expansion area.
  3. Flash forward a few months and we have this... Source
  4. The SLC in Baghdad at Al Zawra park (which also includes the Baghdad Zoo) seems to have finally broken ground. A picture from about a month ago which shows footers for what can only be a SLC layout as well as what appears to be some supports. Nice to see this project is in fact happening.
  5. Adlabs Imagica have started promoting their new waterpark which is under construction. It will be called Aquamagica and open this summer. Link No confirmation as to who's supplying the slides but some of the names visible on the concept art like "Boomerango" and "Aqua Loop" would suggest WhiteWater West. Concept art from Attractions International: Recent picture of visible progress: The park has also added some additional kids rides recently and is working on extensive landscaping/bricklaying to the entrance area and front section of the park. Hotel is still under construction.
  6. Whoops, thanks for the correction, edited my post. Some people earlier were speculating it was only going to be 2 cars.
  7. Video of the Intamin LSM in action, undergoing testing. It has 4 car trains. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0mHrfsWT_hs
  8. A newer offride video of Nitro has found its way onto Youtube which shows the entire coaster from start to finish.
  9. Update: the park's B&M Floorless coaster (Nitro) opened today and there is a page for it now up on the Adlabs Imagica Website. News article
  10. Looks like Nitro has begin testing recently. To answer the poster who wondered about restraints, it uses the original style restraints. I guess the somewhat surprising find is that it's a 6 car train - only the 4th after Vortex (Carowinds), Daemonen (Tivoli), and the Batman clone in Kuwait. (Excluding the dive machines) Source Source
  11. Progress looks to be going well on Nitro. The station equipment is being installed and final inspection underway. I would expect testing to start very shortly. The park announced via Facebook and Twitter they hope to have it up and running by the end of the month. Source
  12. Construction of Nitro looks to be progressing well. In a news report posted to YouTube it shows Nitro along with other clips of the park. Here's the best view I could find from the clip: Of note is the drop style which has not been seen on a B&M yet.
  13. I was doing a bit of looking around about Adlabs Imagica as the park has interested me, and from a news article I found it appears Nitro isn't opening until May. Also, a video posted to the park's YouTube page giving a overview of attractions shows a rendering of Nitro, and as others have suspected it is similar to the Batman:Dark Knight at Six Flags New England, however it appears to be a mirror image and has an added helix at the end.

Apologies if the links aren't allowed - my understanding of the TOR is that the 50 post requirement was only for linking to personal content, and the content I'm linking does sort of back up my post, so again apologies if I've misinterpreted it)
