  1. I wonder if Canada's Wonderland will actually put ketchup in the ketchup containers this year? Oh wait. Never mind, that won't be happening.
  2. The transit systems that serve Canada's Wonderland do not accept any change. You have to buy a card called PRESTO. They are available at most stops and stations. You must load the card and then swipe as you enter and exit the transit vehicle. I hope this helps. A warning though. Don't try to avoid buying or swiping your card. If you don't use your card correctly, then Transit inspectors will ding you with a $500.00 fine. That isn't true. Both the subway system and most busses accept cash still. Wonderland is also in process of building a bus terminal in the parking lot. Accept

  4. Yeah it's a family event, which is why the low amount of adult rides. From what I have heard, the first weekend has been crazy busy. BTW skating is free. Winterfest is not aimed at enthusiasts, its a family friendly version of the. Christmas market in the distillery district. Is it $10 to reserve an ice time, or is it always free? I got the $10 information from Amusement Insiders, which is no surprise as they generally give out incorrect information. At first, I thought Winterfest was just an easy money grab, but it really does look nice. My family might go a couple of times just to lo
  5. Krachenwagen, Klockwerks, Wilde Knight Mares, and Vikings Rage are the only 'adult' rides that will be open for Winterfest at Canada's Wonderland. No coasters as mentioned earlier. This is a 'family' event like Camp Spooky. Planet Snoopy will be open for kids. Here is a list of things to do while you and the kids are freezing, going on rides at Wonderland. Freezing cold days will be empty as cold days are during the regular season as well. I hope this works out but, I had egg nog and candy cane funnel cakes during Haunt and I can skate indoors anytime. I see why Season Pass holders get
  6. I always find it interesting the past few years how no one ever talks about Halloween Haunt at Canada's Wonderland anymore. Oh wait . . . that's because it hasn't changed at all in the past few years. Never mind.
  7. The coasters aren't running because the park is owned by Cedar Fair. It has nothing to do with the quality of the wheel heaters. Nobody should ever expect decent ride lineups at any Cedar Fair Winterfest event at a seasonal park (aside from Great America but that park shouldn't be seasonal anyway and the limited lineup is still sort of pathetic considering there's a Six Flags park up the road that's fully open all year long). If this were a Six Flags park, Leviathan would probably run. The daily average in Vaughan is virtually identical to the daily average in Gurnee by the end of th
  8. 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. If they actually installed the heaters as we all thought, then they probably didn't work in Canada as I think they were testing the heaters on Leviathan last winter. Having heaters on the wheels are going to keep the wheels warm, but it will not melt the ice and snow off the track. We don't really have to worry about no coasters . . . if we have an ice storm or a big snowfall then no rides will
  9. Stocking Stuffers and Festive Funnel Cakes are open now at Canada's Wonderland. Yesterday, I ate an Egg Nog Funnel Cake. It had egg nog drizzle, a gingerbread cookie, pomegranate seeds, red and green sprinkles, and ice cream. mmmmmm . . . They also have Candy Cane and GingerBread Funnel Cakes. The Stocking Stuffers shop looks beautiful. I know they have to set up in advance, but I am going to have a Candy Cane Funnel Cake at Halloween Haunt. I am taking my group on the first weekend. This is the earliest I have ever gone to Haunt, but after the experience from last year. It was ridicu
  10. There is a difference between writing about it on TPR and filling out a comment card/letting the park know. I did speak to the restaurant manager, and guest services at the front gate. The next time I go, I will be sure to speak to the park director I know on behalf of the people who think I am wrong for mentioning people have been able to do this the entire season. Perhaps some people are upset that I am bringing this to the attention of the park much like how people are able to just walk into the exits of the food booths and fill up any bottle they want to for free.
  11. Your two cents are wrong. I paid. I was only there for a half an hour and saw many people and an entire family walk through without paying. Just think of how much money that restaurant lost during this season.
  12. Regardless of how expensive food is at the park, you should never recommend anyone to do this. If it becomes a common occurrence, people do get caught after repeat performances as there are security cameras in every store and restaurant at the park. I just don't think promoting theft/shoplifting online is something you should (or want) to be doing. You must be an honest person like me. But if you were sitting at the table with me on Sunday watching everyone just walk out without paying while I am trying to enjoy my $16.49 pasta in a box, then you too would be commenting like I am righ
  13. It has been awhile since I have commented on things that should be easy to fix. I am not complaining, just commenting. The Chicken Shack food stand did not have any Coke syrup only plain water came out of the dispenser. I was told to walk over to the Coke booth by the arcade. I shouldn't have to walk around looking for some Coke. The Backlot Café charges $16.50 for a box of pasta and a garlic bread. At the pasta counter, there is a sign the says, start line here. I stood there along with another gentlemen for 10 minutes with no one serving us. On the other side of the counter another l
  14. Line jumping in any way is NOT permitted at Canada's Wonderland. If you see a kid or adult line jumping, then let the ride attendant know before they get on. They should at least make them wait a few cycles but they should really kick them out of the line completely. This goes on hundreds of times every day at Wonderland. There seems to be no enforcement unless you say something to the operator. Just don't confront the offender. That will only make the situation worse. You are NOT griping.
  15. I find it amusing how they used actual cut and paste pictures of Wonder Mountain in the depiction of Mountain Bay Cliffs. I guess will all now know what that new hill by Minebuster is going to be.
