Canada's Wonderland Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

If it was taken at the beginning of this year, sure, but since those are from last year for the removal of Skyrider, I'd still have to say no since that was used to close off an area that was previously open. If there's a fence around Skyrider's former area with that sign when the park opens back up for the season, then I'd maybe say it's a possibility.

 

Not trying to be negative, but you guys are jumping the gun way too much. Yes, I know the chain is planning on spending around $120mil next year (and for years to come) but from what we've been hearing about other parks getting coasters with much more solid leads and nothing from Canada's Wonderland besides the removal of a coaster they ended up selling. It's not that that I don't believe there's a coaster coming, but the fact that you guys are wishing for this massive air-based coaster called "Ziz" is not lining up with the budget for next year. If anything, I don't see it arriving until at least 2017.

 

Gotta look at the bigger picture and realize Wonderland is only 1 out of the 11 parks in the chain. Gotta factor in the other 10.

^This link has comments from the VP of marketing for the park about Skyrider's spot.

I'm not saying this guarantees anything, but there is a lot more evidence supporting a new coaster rumor here than any other park, other than CP. (But their coaster is only $15 million, pocket change really )

So guys I myself am now on the band wagon of no coaster for 2016, I've heard a pretty trusted rumor the 2016 coaster is delayed till 2017 but was given no reason... I think were going to see grass in the skyrider spot for one more season... as I hear grass is being layed down soon.

^That looks awesome!

 

Can't wait to see this coaster run again. Was always a bit of a guilty pleasure ride for me Sure, it was a bit rough on the helix and final turn, but for the most part, i loved it, with not many other coasters I've done matching its crazy ejector airtime.

 

It's really too bad CW didn't pull a "Rougareau" (yes, I know I butchered that name lol) and put a sit down train on there though. Maybe it could've been a little more enjoyable, and stayed around a few more seasons with some updates.

 

Anyway, here's to hoping whatever replaces skyrider (be it 2016 or '17( does the old ride justice, and is packed with some good forceful elements, this time without the ... Oh, and I almost forgot, it's gotta have

Now all we need is an August announcement about a Maverick-esque or RMC woodie/Hybrid coming for 2016 . I know the likelyhood of that becoming reality are about the same as the Maple Leafs winning the Stanley Cup in my lifetime but one can dream.

 

As for Slingshot...I have always wanted to try one out and will be giving this a whirl sometime this summer.

I'm visiting Toronto next month and was planning on making my first trip to Canada's Wonderland while I'm there. I've posted a thread asking for advice (as I really want to get everything major there done in one day!) but you guys probably have the expert knowledge here! If you have any advice for my visit, I'd love if you could check out this thread and help me out!

New track on Wild Beast is a huge help!

As I've stated before, Leviathan did end up with seatbelts and it has ZERO impact on ride experience but a little on dispatch times.

Looks great! The seatbelts on Behemoth didn't change dispatch times; good to here it is the case on Leviathan too. Maybe I'll actually rude Wild Beast this year..

 

The Skyrider spot is flattened and appears to be covered in dirt (no grass). As someone on the cwmania said, Behemoth did not have markers until June.

 

Thanks for the pics!

What about Leviathan? How soon did the fenced off area for the station near the go karts appear? I was there in June of 2011 and remember it being there.
