Canada's Wonderland Discussion Thread

Maybe the mayor will be the first to ride Leviathan?

 

C'mon Jason, you know the restraints wouldn't lock. Best walk of shame ever! Sorry, I couldn't resist.

 

You went there first...I just led the way

 

^If I can't do the bid, I"ll probably go on opening day and get a fast pass.

 

^^^Don't forget, it's not all about the coaster. It's a tax deductible charitable donation for a great cause with the coaster, dinner and gift package being a great bonus. I bet many bidders donate to Sick Kids annually with this being a really cool way to do it.

^I one of them! I normally donate $50/month to Sick Kids Hospital. These types of events are a great way to bump up my annual contribution every few years - not to mention the opportunity to be a part of a great event! Hopefully I'll see some fellow TPR members there.

 

I can also assure people that the tunnel has been in the works for quite some time, it's not just a last minute addition. I don't think it's the duration of the tunnel that will matter, it's the head-chopper effect you'll get at the bottom of that first drop.

They look awesome. I'm still anxiously awaiting to see what the ride's sign, plaza, queue, gift shop, ect. turns out to look like. It seems like CF is paying a bit more attention to this one to make it fit in the Medieval Fair area of the park. So far, I'm impressed.

I know there was a change at the top with Mr. Ouimet, but I think many of the new additions this season can be credited toward the park management. Since Raffi went back to Knott's, as far as I am aware, the top management at Wonderland are all veterans of the park. I can see why it's just now that Medieval Faire is starting to go back to what the area was meant to be, and with the announcement of the placement of the entrance sign like it was back when the park opened in the 80's.

 

With food being improved over the last few seasons, I would love to be able to buy mexican food on International Street again.

That train...I have no words. Simply stunning.

 

Also, I had no idea tunnels were so controversial. I always figured they were pretty much universally liked. Yes, you do fly through first-drop hyper tunnels so quickly it's like they're barely there, but I'm looking forward to the headchopper.

Wow, it really flies through that first turn. And the epic B&M roar is so appropriate. The out run definitely looks like it will be great. The return run looks pretty standard B&M megacoaster in terms of intensity (granted this is all speculation, so who knows) but the first half looks pretty unique. I'm happy to see that with this (and Shambahla) the introduction of high speed, low to the ground hills. Those always seem to offer a great sense of speed and are completely appropriate for a ride of this scale.

^^No, it's all good,

 

Ya, they really are moving ahead with a lot of work around the front entrance and bottom of the drop area.

 

Here are some pics.

New front entrance sign.

Random cage around a support. Any idea what this is for as it's the only support with it?

Now that I've seen the sign closer, I actually like it! The only thing to do now is to paint over the green parts of the entrance building with the same light blue and it will be perfect. The red awnings compliment the sign very nicely.

 

If the footers for the tunnel are already in, I wouldn't be surprised if they have the tunnel up within a couple days.

 

Does anyone know how the buses are routing through the parking lot now? It would be nice if Wonderland could have two bus stops, one near the first drop and one beside the front gate seeing as how that island protecting the footer makes a perfect loop for a bus. In any case, I hope they get the #4 going through there again.
