Canada's Wonderland Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Maybe ziz will be a B&M strata coaster. Think about It: Behemoth is a hyper, Leviathan is a giga and then with Ziz being a strata it would round off the idea of height.

Well CP got a giga in 2000, and 3 years later they got a strata and if that pattern kept going Cedar Point would have installed an 800+ foot coaster last year. It's funny how our brains find patterns so easily isn't it? JK I know you were joking? Were you? It's hard to tell

I just meant that CP had a complete coaster collection after they got gatekeeper (in my opinion). And that CW could use one more coaster to have a solid coaster collection.

 

 

PS: You have 16 Coasters

Canada's Wonderland did have 17 during the 2014 season until SkyRider was removed.

Went to the park today to get some testing photos and videos in and ended up seeing some really interesting things;

 

1. There's a plot of land right next to Wonderland Drive that I goto once a week to get pictures and suddenly today there were about 60 red stakes all over this plot of land. This land looks perfect for a hotel or more parking. It can't be a ride as it's very close to the houses.

2. There are still a ton of construction trailers there and two crates and still some land work near minebuster.

The land I am talking about littered in stakes as of this week.

^^^ I would love to see a hotel built onsite as there are not a ton of options in the area without driving a few miles. It would be great to be able to just walk in and out of the park like you can when staying at the on-sight hotels at CP.

 

The last time we visited CW, I believe we were about 4 or 5 miles away at a Comfort Inn - and it was a bit on the seedy side.

^We will probably not get any launched coaster because they usually have a low capacity and as you probably know, cw's attendance is massive.

 

Why would a launched invert have worst capacity then a chain lift. If its in the same general length of raptor to Banshee, has a mcbr, and 3 trains then it should not be effected.

^Since it is launched, the trains would have to be smaller, also they would probably only have two trains like Thunderbird. Thunderbird only has 2 trains with 5 cars with a capacity of 1,140 riders per hour and Banshee has 3 trains of 8 cars with a capacity of 1,650 riders per hour. They also both have 4 seats per car. Even though Thunderbird is a wingrider, I think that it would be around the same capacity if it was a launched inverted coaster. Also, I think that launched coasters might have a higher breakdown rate than regular coasters.

With over 3.5 million visitors to be exact! Backlot Stunt Coaster's capacity is okay but, the line is usually long. But, I do enjoy good launched coasters so, maybe if they figure out a way to increase hourly capacity for any launched coaster, then it may be a great addition.
