Canada's Wonderland Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

^I'm not so sure. There aren't many (if any) LSM launched coasters around with 32 seat trains. I can't tell why (probably the cost of launching such heavy trains) but don't forget Thunderbird only has 5 cars.

 

That's true. But even a B&M with 6 cars could have great capacity (maybe not as good as Behemoth or Leviathan, but better than most launch coasters). I don't know, it's just a thought.

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

Can confirm, CF doesn't care which park you go to first with your paper voucher for a Platinum Pass.  You'll get your photo taken and be issued a card that has whatever park you go to first on the bac

something as awesome as helix would be great, remember cedar fair still works with mack, so we may see a mack launched coaster go into the forest behind splashworks

Would love to see that happen, even though I have my doubts. Behemoth and Leviathan are great,but tbh, I'm kind of getting sick of B&Ms, as all this part of the country really has in terms of large coasters is beemers.

This is what I would call a luxury problem.

Yes, just be happy Canada's Wonderland has two awesome Hyper/Giga coasters. These Cedar Fair parks do not have any Giga Coasters or really good Hyper coasters:

 

-Knott's Berry Farm

-Michigan's Adventure

-California's Great America

-World's Of Fun

-Valleyfair

-Dorney Park

Steel force is good and Mamba isnt to bad. And wild thing has a decent first drop and some floater air. Better then nothing

^I meant like a really good coaster with lots of airtime and that is smooth.

 

Umm...the Morgan hypers all fit in that category. Granted, there's not as much airtime as a B&M or Intamin mega coaster, but there's still quite a bit. Maybe you actually ride Mamba, Steel Force, or Wild Thing before you write them off.

No one on here is complaining that the park got a hyper and a giga.

Though it's not a crime to wish for some variety.

Agreed. I honestly don't enjoy parks as much that are very B&M-heavy. Unless it's Busch Gardens Tampa.

^ Nailed it. Steel Force (which I have actually been on) is very smooth and has great airtime on the bunny hops at the end. Also, with earlier mention of Knott's and Michigan's Adventure, Xcelerator and Shivering Timbers are both world class coasters that are very worthy of headlining a Cedar Fair Park (or any park). It doesn't take a Giga or a B&M hyper to have some good thrills

Steel Force is a very smooth roller coaster. Although there isn't any ejector airtime, there is lots of floaty airtime. Steel Force is one of my favorite hypercoasters

The park operating hours are now out. Opening May 3!

Why is Opening Day on Sunday at CW? Is Sunday a more significant day than Saturday in Canada, or is there some other reason? Sorry if I sound dumb.

Just a quick question to anyone who may know.If I buy the platinum season pass through the Canada's Wonderland web site,is it in Canadian dollars or US dollars?

 

It's in Canadian funds. You know...being in Canada and whatnot.

 

thank you.I was just wondering as it would probably be a bit cheaper with the way our dollar is right now against the US dollar.

Actually, yes. More people tend to do their leisure activities on Sundays (at least where I am in Southern Ontario, anyways). In some areas it's even the busier day for grocery stores and what not. I'm not sure why they wouldn't open on the Saturday though, if only to take advantage of the extra operating day at a time when they are only open on weekends... I mean, as nicman mentioned above, it's been Sunday for years, but now that you mention it, it actually is a good question as to why Sunday.

It has been Sunday since at least 2002 when I first started visiting the park. I belive the reason is because one of the major 6 banks in Canada rents out the entire park, usually TD or Scotia. The weekend before opening day is also often rented out. For whatever reason it is always the Saturday before opening thats rented.
