Canada's Wonderland Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Don't take credit for mentioning those things. You're not the only person on the thread. Sure we talked about a coaster a lot, but it wasn't limited to that.

 

no one mentioned a multi year redevelopment of Canada's Wonderland. we talked about small additions not a large redevelopment... those are very important words as it says a lot of money is about to be invested into the park.

 

And many people on this forum and other forums can vouch i talked about the family rides and bbq and brew and almost everyone was like nah man it's a coaster. You didn't cause I don't remember you, but most thought I was wrong.

Small update;

 

upon arrival I saw small amount of Canada's Wonderland Maintenance workers around the dirt pile beside Minebuster. I thought Minebuster maybe was shut down due to a small problem but it was working. There is metal fencing laid down on the ground next to the power supply station next to Stunt coaster with a people lifter there now where the workers were around. They also had dug up the splash works path again at some point and were re laying some bricks again. There is also a small patch of grass cautioned taped off next to Black Hole in Splash Works. 2016 is looking even more like a Splash Works investment and more land prep for 2017, interesting how their working on the power supply station next to Stunt Coaster cough cough multi launch wing coaster

I think they should put a family coaster/flats in Skyrider's spot and take out Flight Deck and Time Warp and put in a bigger coaster there.

 

I have been saying move Flight Deck to VF for a couple years now. Put a nice B&M invert at CW

Reposting what KI Kidd posted in the development section;

 

I would highly suggest reading through the Cedar Point Analyst Day release on the CF website. It has some great info on performance so far this year as well as a very interesting five year capital expenditures matrix. The oft discussed pie chart of park-by-park revenues and EBITDA is also present.

 

Looks like park EBITDA broke down as follows so far this year:

1) Cedar Point

2) Knott's

3) Kings Island

4) Canada's Wonderland

5) Carowinds

6) Kings Dominion

7) Dorney

8) Worlds of Fun

9) California's Great America

10) Valleyfair

11) Michigan's Adventure

 

There are also some interesting notes from the five year capital expenditure matrix.

-Major coaster projects each year through 2020

-"Coaster Re-Work" projects for 2016-2018

-Mid-size thrill rides for 2016-2017 and 2019-2020

-Interactive Dark Rides for 2016-2019

-Accommodation expenditures in 2017 & 2019

-Ride Removals in 2016-2018

I agree. Flight Deck at VF would be a good fit. Time Warp could go to DP or even MIA.

One side of the theater is shut down, this would be perfect for them as it has a massive que line and they can still do a haunt show in there and use the other side for maze!

Wonderland specific predictions based off conference call, news articles and rumors;

 

2016- Food & Beverage (BBQ and Brew) & Tween/ family ride/ or Thrill Ride

2017- multi launch Wing Coaster Ziz. New hotel (if not 2017 then 2019, but I have a feeling we will have a hotel installed for the opening of Ziz in 2017)

2018- Minebuster removal, nothing added

2019- Thrill Ride or Family Ride or Splash Works addition.

2020- Infrastructure or nothing

2021- Coaster to replace Minebuster

I'd be surprised if Wonderland got a hotel. I feel like they wrote that idea off when they sold off that massive plot of land north of the park. That would've been the perfect spot for one. Plus Wonderland isn't a destination/resort kind of park, and it doesn't need to be. The park has an enormous market within 2 hours driving time.

^Agreed. I even know people in places like just outside of Ottawa or up in northern Ontario who make day trips to wonderland.

 

Personally believe we'll be seeing a Minebuster "coaster rework" (AKA RMCing) as the next big expansion/development after "Ziz". Already heard rumours of Ghostrider at Knott's being RMCed in the near future, so if that plan comes to fruition, I'm willing to bet Minebuster would also be on the list.
