Canada's Wonderland Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

The newer seats rather than the flat tops, the restraints look a bit more "low cut" than standard. Which I am kinda hoping for. Though who doesn't love sexy Clamshells..

 

I think that the restraints look the exact same than a standard B&M. Never the less the restraints are still super comfy and allow for some nice airtime if you are not stapled.

Here is a pic of Behemoths restraints. I think they look about the same.

I feel like the train type/roughness issue is more a variable dealing with maintenance. I thought Behemoth was great this past fall. Yet my last rides on Goliath at SFOG were insanely rattly and rough. However, if B&M said they'd prefer their more trusty old trains on a new ride like this vs. the "new trains," I guess there's something slightly off about them.

The season needs to hurry up and start... it's only November 28th and we're already debating the color of one support beam. lol
So now we are on to complaining about the colors of the supports........
^Agreed! First "The World's Longest Brake Run" than a bunch of other pointless arguments including this support "issues". Next we are going to be complaining about the trains, the trim brakes, how slow the lift is, and that the line to get on is too long (I'm not complaining...but I just know these things are going to pop up in someones post).

 

I find it a lot more interesting to discuss all of the above than reading the same "omg it's so big" replies after every photo update. Yes, it's big. We've known that since the ride was announced with a near-perfect virtual recreation.

However, the color of that backbone support is something unexpected, as it was painted blue in the announcement renders (see attachment).

 

edit: The park has let me know they will not be repainting it.

I personally like slow/extended lift hills. #KanyeShrug

Did anyone manage to record it? I got home at 8 and missed it.

 

I missed it myself, but I'll catch it at 11 tonight. If you can't catch it at 11 and no one recorded, it you should be able to find it online tomorrow here.

 

EDIT: The episode is now up online for those who wanted to watch it.

I'm glad they went back to the original train design for Leviathan. IMO, the staggered seating is a huge waste of space. You could fit three rows of 4-across seats in the space two of the staggered cars use.

 

I know they would have been heavy, but the very tiny ginger soul inside me wishes the trains would have been at least 10 cars long.

^dont worry it wasn't anything special...I found it kind of a "time filler".

 

I'm not quite sure why you think footage of them crowning the lift hill as time filler. I've seen LOTS of still photos but I haven't seen any video from the top of the lift like that. They spoke with some of the top players from the park and the company that's putting this monster together.

 

They also added in a few things that I found interesting (specifically the exact angle of the track had to be set before starting to lift). What else did you want/expect?

 

I've only been at work for 20 minutes and I've already been asked by 2 people about that clip. They didn't even know Canada's Wonderland was building a new roller coaster (never mind the 5th tallest in the world). They came up to me asking if I knew about it.

 

This was a GREAT clip for the vast majority of people that watch Daily Planet. I'm sure very few of them are coaster enthusiasts like us that know every single detail and have seen hundreds (thousands) of pictures of the same few pieces of track over the past few months.

 

I guess you just can't please everyone (especially some coaster enthusiasts).
