  1. Yesterday, Canada's Wonderland had updated their website, along with other Cedar Fair parks. While browsing through the updated website, there have been two noticeable changes to a dining location and a merchandise location both located in Planet Snoopy. Snoopy's Suppertime was renamed Carrousel Kitchen and Snoopy's Boutique was simply renamed Character House. The renaming of these locations is probably due to the addition of Beagle Brigade Airfield (Zamperla Flying Tigers ride) that replaced Peanuts Putt Putts Mini Golf which closed at the end of the 2019 season. It is always nice to see
  2. The last time I was in the park was for the premiere night of Winterfest held on November 22nd, 2019, which was 434 days ago! Hopefully they are able to keep their opening date as planned and remain open for their 40th anniversary! I need some normalcy in my life again as going that long without amusement parks is quite depressing!
  3. Canada's Wonderland sent emails out to Season Passholders yesterday announcing that they will be opening for the 2021 season on May 14th, 2021! As already known, reservations will be required to visit the park. Here's hoping the May 14th opening date holds true!
  4. While not completely related to the operation of Canada's Wonderland, the park was used in a completely different way earlier this week to keep a tradition alive due to current COVID-19 restrictions in the Greater Toronto Area and the Province of Ontario. Since 1905, the Toronto Santa Claus Parade has drawn many spectators along the downtown streets in the city of Toronto. Due to current restrictions, they had to figure out a way to bring the parade to spectators in a safe manner. Instead of using the traditional street route, they headed north to the City of Vaughan and used Canada's Wonderla
  5. I agree with those who have said that the Pirate and Sleighride would possibly be the next rides to be removed from Six Flags Darien Lake, as per the announcement of 15 rides being removed from Six Flags Parks. The Pirate hasn't operated since the 2018 season and the Sleighride is in really rough, but operable shape. Now if we were to discuss coasters, I feel the MotoCoaster would be the first to go as it goes down quite a few times a day and is a prototype model, which could affect its overall reliability. It will definitely be interesting to see which 15 rides get removed from Six Flags
  6. Thanks Robb! After a bit of exploring, I was also able to find all the topics I have responded to by selecting 'My Activity Streams' followed by 'Content Posted In' under the Activity tab on the menu bar of the forums. It's nice to see there are two ways to find the topics I am most active in on the forums.
  7. Hey Robb, the new forums look great! One feature I liked in the old forums that may be here is the ability to look at a list of topics you (the user) have replied to. Is there such a list feature on the new forums like there was in the old forum? Thanks!
  8. Below is an update to my Favourite Hyper Coaster list that was originally created in December of 2016. Since then, I have been able to ride some great hyper coasters, especially in 2017 and 2018 as I had done a few small roads trips those two summers. The list goes from most favourite to least favourite. 1. Behemoth at Canada's Wonderland 2. Goliath at La Ronde 3. Ride of Steel at Six Flags Darien Lake 4. Nitro at Six Flags Great Aventure 5. Diamondback at Kings Island 6. Steel Force at Dorney Park 7. Superman - The Ride at Six Flags New England Since I was unable to travel this
  9. Here's an update to my list from December 2018: Defunct: -Toronto Island Monster at Centreville Amusement Park -Stinger at Dorney Park -Firehawk at Kings Island -Super Manege at La Ronde -Vortex at Kings Island -Crazy Mouse at Fantasy Island (current location/status unknown) -Silver Comet at Fantasy Island (Current status uncertain) Relocated: -SkyRider at Canada's Wonderland
  10. Yes, I came across those while looking on their website! It'll be interesting to see what they come up with in the future.
  11. For the past 14 years, Rethink Communications has been creating many of the advertisements for Playland. They definitely create many advertisements that are not only interesting but ones that also capture people's attention. More of the work that they have done for Playland can be found on their website.
  12. The last coaster I rode was Dragon Fyre at Canada's Wonderland on October 27th.
  13. So, is the new slide never being set up then, or are they storing it for next year? Also, is it safe to assume there won't be a new attraction next year either? If the Wahoo Wave is not installed this year, it'll probably be the new attraction for 2021. I would guess it will be stored on site until it can be constructed.
  14. That is correct, Vipere will be built on the former site of Super Manege.
  15. For the 2017 season, Canada's Wonderland added a Mondial Inferno known as Soaring Timbers. Prior to operating at Canada's Wonderland, it traveled throughout Europe as Nightfly from 1995 through 2013. The way it operates at Canada's Wonderland, they may have been better off getting a Mondial Supernova. As for the ride that existed at Busch Gardens Williamsburg, it was a Vekoma Canyon Trip ride. It was similar to the Mondial Supernova, but featured two platforms of seats that moved towards each other throughout the ride. It operated at the park as Gladiator's Gauntlet from 1988 through 199
