Canada's Wonderland Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

The layout looks great, I'd say this is completely different from Behemoth. The high-speed curves look vaguely like I305. Like Intamin's gigas, it looks like speed is emphasized, with a decent amount of airtime, and a lot of lateral forces. Honestly, the only thing I'm disappointed about is the cop-out on the record (tallest and fastest in Canada). This looks amazing, and I can't wait to get back to Canada.

Anyone else find it interesting the POV is only 1:12, but the ride statistics say it will be 3:28? I suppose the lift hill probably has a lot to do with that...

 

And it looks like a chain lift. If it's anything like the speed of their hypers I'm going to bet half the ride is you sitting on the lift hill..

Um... so they're basically building a larger version of a coaster they all ready have? Kind of a surprising addition, don't get me wrong I'm sure this thing will be awesome, but it's a little strange that they would choose to build a new ride so similar to the a ride they just installed 4 year prior, but then again it is Canada.

 

Anyone notice that there are trims in the POV video at 55second?

 

On a random thought, Robb mentioned it several pages back, but it almost seems like there is no way this thing was originally designed for Canada's Wonderland, and instead was intended for somewhere else (Knotts) and that project fell through at the last minute for some reason.

 

So what's the next big rumor for 2012? I heard Dollywood might build a 200ft tall Arrow Looper, or the southeasts longest Euro fighter.........

Yeah if you look at the lift hill it only has like 10 things that connect the spine to the rails. Haha yeah it's really cut down.

I'm excited to try out B&M's first take on the giga concept, but it's definitely an odd layout. And it cracks me up that CF still didn't go over 310.

 

And it is one foot taller than I305!

Should've made the final brake run a MCBR. That had good height to be one. And it still had a lot of speed.

 

Considering they are already paying 28 million dollars for this, I can understand why it is the final brake run.

If this was made for another park, such as Knott's, where would you put it? It seems to fit pretty well where it is.

 

Exactly, where the overbanked hamerhead is placed, on the "island" with the trees...makes it seem too me also that it was meant too go here and not another park.

While this may not be extreme, it is a damn impressive rude that will be fast smooth and floaty!

 

I'm also impressed by the fact that b&m have been going outside of their comfort zone. First the wingwallets, now this!
