Canada's Wonderland Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Woah, it seems like Wonderland put together a nice event for you all.

 

I find the story about Behemoth's name originally being Leviathan interesting. It would make more sense that way, so that's a shame... but I do like the cool teal/green color scheme better in Medieval Faire better than I would warm orange/red one like Behemoth has.

The argument about that shouldn't take place on here at all because at the end of the day we know that Cedar Fair is only doing what they're mandated to do. Even Knott's lifted the restrictions ASAP.

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 i

It's a real shame that Wonder Mountain is closed to the public as those views are incredible!

 

Also, Wonderland's Dinosaurs Alive looks pretty good too! I'm not a fan of these attractions, but atleast Cedar Fair made the areas around/within them look very nice.

Leviamania was definitely a huge success. Thanks to everyone that attended. It was a bit hard to hear at times, so I wanted to share this tidbit of information from the Q&A (Norm, Park GM):

 

Canada's Wonderland was meant to get a B&M inverted intead of the Vekoma SLC model! The deal was ready to be signed HOWEVER, Cedar Point had an exlusivity deal that B&M could not build another invert with 200 miles (as the crow flies) of the park. Canada's Wonderland is at the 198 mile mark. Cedar Point refused to let Wonderland build what could have been an AMAZING invert. So we got what we did.

 

It REALLY hurts to know we were SO CLOSE to having a B&M invert instead...

^I will now forever and always hate Cedar Point. Okay, well, I can't hate that place but wow, that sucks.

 

Ya, had a hard time hearing when everyone rushed the food during the Q&A session. Was real unfortunate we missed this information from the source but thank you for letting us know.

Very good report, thanks!

 

To be honest, I kind of feel like the location of Behemoth and Leviathan works out well despite the surroundings being backward. I think Behemoth is a more generic name that fits in better with Action Zone (is that what they're still calling it?) than Leviathan would. But then again, I'd be happy no matter what the two coasters are called.

 

That B&M invert story is a total bummer. It could have taken up more space so we wouldn't have the Volare either.

Does this still hold true now that CF owns the park??

So I was wondering why the purple train on Wild Beast didn't have a logo on it. It turns out it's in a commercial for the government of Ontario! I was too busy watching the coaster to actually pay attention to what it was about. It's basically just a guy riding Wild Beast with a straight face the entire time.

 

Anyone wanna fill me in on what this commercial was actually talking about?

 

EDIT: Oh, here it is:

It's about Ontario savings bonds being on sale.

^ It appears to be advertising investing in a stock broker because they don't have the usual ups and downs or the "wild ride" of the other companies of the stock market. Whether this is true or not, I have no idea.

Weather has really warmed up here and apparently Leviathan is much much faster than opening day. Comments on cwmania from a couple of recent riders repoted grey-outs through the first overbank, lots of forces on the other turns and major air time on all hills including a little pop after the hill entering the break run.

 

Seems like the monster has awaken from winter hibernation. Shouldn't be any disappointed riders during LeviaTHON in July. I just picked up some season passes for the family and will hopefully I will be able to visit the park soon and give my own impressions.

^It was absolutely flying when I rode last, as was Behemoth. I didn't experience any greying out myself, but I can understand if some did.

That first drop is just insane in the warmer weather. I was definitely seeing stars during the first turn

 

Everyone on LeviaTHON should have an amazing time at the park this year! The water park is also a great to be at that point in the summer either right at opening or near closing.

Ya that first turn was quite the experience in the warmer weather. Also, I found that small airtime hill right after that turn to produce some even crazier air than normal.

Well, obviously if they just got a memo from B&M saying they would not build them a ride, they could not have been "SO CLOSE" to signing a deal..
