Canada's Wonderland Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I agree with JohnLLoyd....and I would add the flat ride "Sledgehammer" to your list...as it is good fun.

 

Guardian does not have any fastpass entrance...so it is one to do earlier in the day as the line gets quite long (and they still haven't addressed the queue structure).

Other than that...your list is as good as any. Enjoy!

 

Yes, adding Sledgehammer to the list is a great idea as it's a very fun thrill ride with a high capacity so, the wait time is very minimal. Also, last year was the best it had operated in years. It was operating during my 11 visits to the park last year. Also, right beside Sledgehammer is Psyclone. It's a very fun Mondial Revolution with some great forces and airtime! You may want to consider giving it a try. Also ul9601, if you enjoy riding drop towers, you may want to check out Drop Tower. It may not be the tallest Intamin drop tower but, it's quite enjoyable with a total height of 227 feet. Also, if you're into classic rides, you may want to check out Orbiter (North America's last Huss Giant Enterprise) and Nightmares (North America's last Huss UFO). The majority of the rides at Canada's Wonderland can be found at other parks but, I would suggest riding the rare ones if you have time in your schedule to do so.

Right thanks guys - I'm getting a bit of hate from other discussion threads (I'm planning a road trip covering 10 parks) as I've been asking the same question in the other threads also - some are thinly veiled sarcasm, others outright "you are dumb" type deal.

That's quite unfortunate that you're getting not so appreciated responses. Hopefully you find the information you're looking for! What other parks do you plan on visiting?

maybe I should treat my canadian colleagues a bit better, as you guys are being so nice to me...

SFMM, CP, KI, SFGAvd, SFNE, HP, DP, BGW, KD - are these the acronyms you use?

Yes, they're acronyms I'd use when referring to the parks even though I've only been to Kings Island and Dorney Park out of the list above so far. If you have any questions about the parks, please feel free PM me!

Sam, you should try Guardian too, but just don't waste time in a long line. If the line isn't too long, then give it a try. I'd like to hear your opinion of it.

 

You can PM me if you'd like to chat, you too John.

I'll tell you where I went last summer.

I thought Vortex, Leviathan and Behemoth were the best rides in the park by an enormous margin. The other coasters are a major step down (though most are still lots of fun).

 

Time Warp, Flight Deck and Minebuster are truly horrendous rides though. Some of the worst coasters I've ever had the misfortune of riding.

 

As some have said the park has a great collection of flat rides, check them out of you can.

I would have to say that Wild Beast is more horrendous than Mighty Canadian Minebuster. But yes, Flight Deck and time Warp are not enjoyable.

Lol, Am I "The Chosen One" or something? Because it seems like I am one of the very few that loves and can handle Flight Deck and Time Warp. I seem the enjoy them a lot.

Your not the only one. Sure id rather a b&m invert over flight deck but its really not that rough and does pack a good punch. As for time warp i dont get it. That rides got everything air speed inversions and good turns. Not to mention i think its smooth and very comfortable to lay down. For me its one of my favorite rides in the park.

You know, I actually rather like Flight Deck. I know it's just another Vekoma SLC, but I like the different elements of it and I like how it's "confined" to a small landscape. I also like Backlot Stunt Coaster. It's nothing grand but its fun.

Hey all, sorry to interrupt all the fun off-season ramblings, just had a quick question that I can't find info on elsewhere.

 

Last October, while I was in Canada, I picked up a Season Pass (it was $5 more and, since I was buying with American currency, basically silly not to) for the 2016 year. Now, I might be going back to CW this year, but my home park is Knott's, so it makes more sense to have a pass that covers both. Is there any way I can upgrade my SP to a Platinum? Further, is there a way I can do that without being there (Canada)?

 

Thanks!

You might be able to do it at Knott's Berry Farm. But, you may want to contact them to see if you can upgrade your 2016 Canada's Wonderland pass to a platinum pass. Also, you should try contacting Canada's Wonderland because you may be able to upgrade your 2016 season pass to a platinum pass online. Hopefully these suggestions help.

Ladies and gentleman, Skyhawk has arrived! Below is a photo of Skyhawk in the parking lot near Behemoth. It won't be too long now until it's up and testing!
