Canada's Wonderland Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Went to haunt last night and the mazes were really good.

 

Ranked Mazes.

 

1. Cornstalkers (10/10)

2. Blood Shed (9/10)

3. Streets of the Undead (7/10)

4. The Ruins (7/10)

5. Sci-Fi House (6/10)

6. The Asylum (6/10)

7. Louisiana Scream (6/10)

8. Spirit Manor (5/10)

9. Terror of London (4/10)

10. Club Blood (2/10)

 

Cornstalkers- This has to be the cream of the crop of mazes at wonderland. It is by far the most immersive one there with full of scares. As we entering the maze someone scared got us really well. It was full of scares throughout the maze. By far the most immersive maze there with the most screams.

 

Blood Shed- The scariest maze of them all. Really well done, felt like I was in barn. Really well done, there were scares throughout the maze. A 180 degree turn around from last years Blood She.

 

Streets of the Undead- Same layout, works really well though. I felt like I was walking around town looking for safety and supplies for the apocaplypes. Really well done, great scare by the subway and lots of surprises.

 

The Ruins- Very immersive until the end with the lava floor which ruined it. Not a lot of scares, very cool maze though. Very well done, complete and to the point.

 

Sci-Fi House- Lackluster due to same layout, not a lot of scares and was a let down. Was one of my favourites last year and was very dissapointed this year.

 

The Asylum- Felt very incomplete and short. It really only had one section that made up for the rest of it. Wonderland dropped the ball with this one this year. As I was entering the maze you can see behind the scenes, ruined the whole maze experience.

 

Lousinia Scream- By far the biggest let down for me. It was poorly done, felt unfinished and un immersive. No scares in it, boring and short. Not living up to expectations. I hope it's gone next year.

 

Spirit Manor- It was really good looking and somewhat immersive. What ruined it for me was the lack of scares, the actors would just look at us and not do anything. They were'nt scary at all. The most they would do is ask us a question like "What are you doing here?" and a lot of them told us to get out, it got repetitive. The best part was the grand stair case at the beginning.

 

Terror of London- Boring and dull. No scares, the only upside was that it was eye appealing.

 

Club Blood- Wow, what a failure. Boring, not well done, short, no scares, not immersive. It was really bad, there was only like 2 sections of the maze that had to do with a club and they were both bad.

 

Over all I think Corn Stalkers, Blood Shed, and The Ruins, can stay the way they are. Sic-Fi House, Streets, and The Asylum could use a revamp to return them to their former glory. Spirit Manor should get a bit more characters and work on their scare game. Loisiana Scream, Terror of London, and Club Blood should take a bow and retire from haunt.

Seems like I was right. Same old, same old. I'm going with my big brother on October 16th to avoid the crowds like last year. Interesting no one mentioned the horrible Toxicity. That, and Skeleton Crew, MUST GO next year! They should have been axed years ago, just horrible, Toxicity has nothing to do with Halloween and I truly have memorized the entire Skeleton Crew show, because it has been the exact same for 5 years now.

There is a video on youtube showing a behind the scenes tour of WMG. I'm not going to include the link since it's probably breaking some policy on this site. Just search "Wonder Mountains Guardian" and sort by upload date. You'll find it.

Skeleton Crew must be doing something right as it has been ported to other Cedar Far parks. The only part of the show that has remained the same over the years is the Skeleton trampoline section at the end. Pretty much every year the acts prior to that have changed. For something that is designed to grab people's attention, pull some crowds out of the midway and do some entertaining, I feel that both Skeleton Crew and Toxicity (while not for everyone I agree) are doing a great job.

Skeleton Crew was alright, the first time I saw it, 5 years ago, but it's time to change it. Even the CNE had a trampoline scene in this year's ice show doing exactly the same moves that I have now memorized from Skeleton Crew and the daytime 'pirate' show. In and out, in and out, and repeat. Again, been there, done that. As for Toxicity, that too must go. I have seen it every year for the past 5 years and I will not be seeing it this year. The 1/2 hour sleep I get is nice but such a waste of time. It has nothing to do with Halloween and is just a different name when Haunt is on versus the regular day show. People complained that the ice show stayed too long, it's really time for a change. How about, say, a show with something to do with a Halloween theme, say, like they use to have before they went with the magic/acrobatics idea.

Congratulations on 950 posts, nut. Yeah, an apology, or even acknowledgement that it was cancelled, or was never even planned, would have been nice. Unfortunately, Wonderland seems to have gotten into promoting ideas before they are actually confirmed, example, the food trucks, describing a dark ride before it was even designed, and even announcing 'a very large project' that now may never happen. I really hope they stop doing that. It creates a lot of dissapointment.

I agree I'm done with Wonderlands false promises.I wanted to attend both the food truck festival and Oktoberfest as they were promised around the time of buying a season pass. It's very poor ownership for a company to cancel an event then bring it back last minute and then kind of delete Oktoberfest with no mention of it.

 

Now the big addition announcement they did clearly state they couldn't give a timeline into it and it's only been two years. They described land prep which we saw so I'd say just be patient with that.

I went here last weekend, the park was EMPTY! Walk on on behemoth, we stayed on Wild Beast and Mine buster (stayed in our seats, didn't even need to get up and change seats). These october weekends are the tiem to go. Weather is also great, not too hot not THAT cold (although bring a sweater)

You mean you actually wanted to ride these more than once?

Hell yea, these rides are in my top 6 in CW. After Flight Deck, Vortex, And Leviathan.

I can handle bumpy rides very well, and wooden coasters just hit it for me.4

Hi guys! I haven't been to any good roller coaster parks outside of my home park, SFGA near Chicago. I had the opportunity to extend a business trip an extra day and check out this Canada's Wonderland. I was in Toronto this past Wed-Sat. First, Toronto was a lot of fun! I was staying downtown. First night was NHL opening night, then baseball playoffs two nights, then hockey again. They city was lively to say the least, and I had a great time.

 

I went to CW Saturday, and had to leave by 3 to catch my flight. I knew it wasn't a lot of time, but wanted a chance to at least ride Leviathan and Behemoth. I was not disappointed. I first hit Flight Deck. Walk on, and rode twice. It would be an awesome ride if it wasn't so rough. I went over and Behemoth was walk on too! I ended up riding that 4 times. Great coaster, good drop, good action afterwards. I wish it wouldn't break so much right before the airtime hills though. Hit MCM, which was a little rough but fun. I then went over to Leviathan, and the wait was only about 15 mins! I rode it 5 times in a row. This thing is 50% bigger than any coaster I have been on. The speed is incredible, and the drop is awesome. I wish it has a little more airtime, but the rest of the ride is cool. I then hit Wild beast, Dragon Fire, Leviathan again, and the Bat. I wanted to try Vortex, but didn't leave enough time. Overall I'm really glad I checked out CW. It's a great park, and you guys have some awesome rides.

Wait you missed Vortex because you were riding Flight Deck twice? Hopefully you get a chance to go back and ride it, it's easily one of the top 3 rides in the park.

 

Glad you had fun though and welcome to TPR.

It is nice to see our home park through a visitor's eyes. Sometimes we take for granted what we have.

 

I'll trade you Flight Deck for Whizzer, or even just a 'player to be named later...'

 

=> "It would be an awesome ride if it wasn't so rough.": Because SLC headbanger!

Whoa, did you actually score tickets to a Leaf's game? One of the items on my bucket list is to take the train up to Toronto and see the Leafs play in the ACC.

Leafs Nation! Ya gotta believe! (because watching them actually play is painful)

wow that is some bucket list item. I'd hate to see the rest. does it involve marathoning a SLC headbanger?

 

Why don't you take a road trip to Chicago, hit Great America and watch a real hockey team!
