Canada's Wonderland Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Went to the park around 2 pm today and holy crap... Like holy crap....

 

1. Parking was nearly full capacity,

2. fast lanes were full

3. regular lines over flowing well beyond capacity,

4. I'd estimate minimum 30 minute wait times for food/ drinks,

5. you could hardly walk in the park as you can see from pictures below.

 

The season pass processing line was full in August at 2pm.... The Canadian Dollar I think is benefiting the park significantly attendance wise despite the company losing 25% of profits right now due to the dollar.

 

Here's My 6 year plan after the conference Call yesterday;

 

2015- Infrastructure/ slingshot/ Waterslide (2 new parking booths, waterfalls are all working now and wood fencing replaced around most of the park)

2016- Thrill Ride/ Family attraction, Wifi, mobile app, fast pay & closure of either the movie theater or Minebuster :$ Also the new Transportation hub will be open.

2017- Launched Wing Coaster

2018- Infrastructure

2019- Water Park/ Family and if not Minebuster will either be re-tracked or replaced by now

2020- If Minebuster isn't rennoed in 2019 it will be by this year.

With the park being at capacity. When the park closes it's rides at close time at 10:00pm. With the people still waiting outside the que how are they going to handle the last minute rides? Park closes at 10:00pm? Assuming they won't get all those people out of the park at 10:00pm. Would they stay open an extra hour for last minute rides?

The park always lets anyone in line ride.

Canada's Wonderland is like the Toronto Maple Leafs of the amusement park industry. They could go years without making any new additions and the people will still come to the park in droves and make Cedar Fair lots and lots of money.

 

Shhh...don't give them any ideas!!!

So, CW and the Maple Leafs share a bit in common with MiA and the Lions, eh?

 

With over six million people and one decent amusement park, the odds are forever in CF's favor.

At least the Lions have a better chance of getting a Super Bowl title than MIA getting a new coaster.

 

You'll eat your words before you know it my friend!

 

It may be awhile, but we'll eventually get both!!

I think in the future, MIA will get a new coaster before the lions win a super bowl.

So interesting topic of discussion, what could the large redevelopment program be?

 

 

According to Phillips, Wonderland will be undergoing a large redevelopment program after Sept. 1. Currently, SkyRider sits on 5,100 square metres of prime space right between the Splash Works and the mountain. Here, Wonderland saw an opportunity.

 

“We like to space out (our ideas) over time and we always want to be innovative and leading the industry,” Phillips said. “Guests still like it and it’s a great attraction, but you have to look within the park to understand what’s best for the future.”

 

“The plan is to develop the land for future use. It’s on a prime piece of land in the middle of our park,” Phillips said of SkyRider.

 

“Based on our history at the park, if you look at what’s happened since 2008, we’ve put in two of the top 10 fastest coasters in North America and we’re ranked as one of the top three parks in North America. We’ve put in Behemoth and Leviathan. I can’t define how long it will take, but guests should be excited (about what’s to come),” he added.

With the ridiculous amount of money and attendance CF is raking in because of CW lately, it's hard to imagine just how big the future is for CW. The future is definitely holding great thing, specifically 2017

 

Are you referring to our worlds longest with two launches wing coaster ;0

NO IT WASN'T! No one discussed the fact that wonderland was now under a redevelopment project. we only talked about a new coaster not a massive multi year redevelopment of Canada's Wonderland..
