Canada's Wonderland Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

As of this week;

 

Two flat bed trucks, a digger in the graveyard, two new construction trailers on the land clearing site that weren't there last week, 5 construction trailers near behemoths helix, land clearing int he forest near Minebusters turn around/ behind Splash Works, still more dirt coming in and being piled next to Minebusters drop. Minimal action in Skyriders plot of land, in fact more tree's were planted but more stakes were also put there aswell.

 

Here is a list of things I think it may be;

1. separate entrance/ parking for Splash Works with a slide complex added next to Minebusters drop.

2. hotel/ lodging as on the time frame presentation hotel lodging is listed for 2017 for cedar fair.

3. RMC of Minebuster as we tend to sometimes be the test park for Cedar Fair.

4. the rumored wing coaster to replace Skyrider.

 

I was the one that found the youtube video and posted the pictures on that facebook page, but you need to delete that post as those pictures break park rules, thus why I didn't post any of them here.

"don't remove it, rmc it."

 

 

Also from the same video, Im pretty sure this patch of land by behemoth was being talked about a while back.

 

It was by me, it's owned by the twon but there are a ton of red stakes on that land. I posted pictures a while back

I would personally like to see Mighty Canadian Minebuster get re-tracked by Great Coasters International than touched by RMC. If it were to be re-tracked, it would be amazing again as the train would just fly over the hills! I just enjoy out-and-back wooden coasters!

GCI coasters are great, but their retracking is pretty bad. The coasters turn out smooth, but that's about it. They turn out rather forceless and boring compared to their previous incarnations. Timber Wolf is an example. Use to have ejector airtime and decently steep drops. Now it has a little floater airtime and ramps. Always wish for RMC instead. ALWAYS.

 

Knott's fans are in for a surprise if they think Ghostrider will be the best woodie in California next month.

Okay, well I don't care who re-tracks it as long as they do a great job and maintain the airtime! I just wouldn't want to see Mighty Canadian Minebuster get RMC'd as I enjoy this coaster the way it is, especially since it has some historical significance of being modeled after the Shooting Sat at Coney Island (Cincinnati).

They have been retracking wildebeast and the parts they did have been great. At the rate they are going it will take another 3 years to finish it though...

 

If they were to hire the same contractors to bring back minebuster to original condition, It would be awesome.( i know they changed the out and back airtime hills )

 

With some decent track that coaster really hauls a$$ and would be a lot of fun.

RMC does simple wooden retracking too. They've done it to plenty of coasters.

Now knowing that, maybe Canada's Wonderland should contact RMC to re-do the simple re-tracking for Mighty Canadian Minebuster. It's a good coaster but, could become great with some re-tracking!

They used to. I think they stopped re-tracking coasters when the I-Box track was introduced.

I think the question comes about the capacity. that's why I think that Canada's wonderland should get a new coaster before rmc redo on mine buster. But I would prefer an rmc on minebuster if there was no capacity issue.

 

With our luck, mean streak will be rmced by 2018 giving us nothing jk.

Can anyone on here tell me if the prices listed on Canada's Wonderland's website for items such as fastlane are in USD or CAD? It doesn't say in any obviously location I can find including doing a mock purchase. Just trying to do some research for an upcoming trip. Thanks!

Im thinking if we got an rmcing of minebuster, we should have at least 4 trains, even though most rmc's only have 2. But I know that twisted colossus has 6 trains. Since they already know about the attendance at Canada's wonderland, they will probably not ignore it.

I don't think you really know how blocking works...

 

And Twisted Colossus has four trains but can only run three. The number of trains a coaster runs has little to do with capacity if they're all sitting in storage or constantly stacked.

Here's my travel guide that I made last year, may include some usefull stuff:

 

It is a bit long, kinda like the whole travel guide

When you are outside of the park, one of the best things to do is to go to downtown Toronto. There are several things to do there like if you like hockey, you could go to the hockey hall of fame museum or you got to the CN Tower. The CN tower is one of my favorite things to do in Toronto because not only can you go up one of the tallest buildings in the world but you can also (if you have the nerve) do the CN Tower edge walk. And there is also the Toronto zoo and a few other museum's and stuff like that. If you are willing to travel around a hour to an hour and a half from Canada's Wonderland, you can go to Niagara Falls which is pretty sweet. One of my favorite things to do in Niagara Falls, is Marineland. Even though it only has one real coaster (which is a pretty awesome AD coaster) there are several unique things about this park. Like the have a topple tower flat ride (which was probably my favorite ride there) and the tallest triple tower drop ride. But one of the main things about Marineland is the animals of course. Anyway Marineland is a pretty decent park and the lines are not that long either, so I would recommend it. Anyway back to Canada's Wonderland. First off all Canada's Wonderland has some pretty big lines, in fact it is the most visited seasonal park in North America. So if you go to Canada's Wonderland on a sunny summer day, FastLane is a must. But it really depends on when you go, like if you go in may or early June when everybody is still in school, then the lineup's will be decent. But if you are going during summer vacation there will be a lot of people, with one exception. Last summer I went when it was forecasting rain in the afternoon and the lineup's were practically empty. And the best thing about it is that it did not start raining till about 5 pm so I got to really enjoy the day. One other thing, try to get there as early as possible and start riding the good rides like Behemoth and Leviathan right when you get there. Try to bring your own lunch because the food there is really expensive, but the catch is that you have to eat it outside the park because you are not allowed to bring your own food in the park (you probably already know that) . Try to eat lunch a bit later than everyone else like at 2 pm so you will have shorter lines for the rides at lunch time. After around 4-6 pm, the lines will start getting shorter because a lot of people will go home. Now for the rides, Behemoth and Leviathan are obviously the best rides in the park, and when you ride Behemoth make sure you sit in the back. Wild Beast is pretty rough but they are retracting it so next season it might not be so rough. Vortex is decent, and Wonder Mountains Guardian is a fun shooting dark ride. Mighty Canadian Minebuster is rough for some people, but I would try out anyway. Backlot Stunt coaster is a pretty good Family ride. Time Warp and Flight Deck are a , I would not recommend them unless you like getting your head smashed. The flat rides are pretty unique like Sledge Hammer and Shockwave. Anyway if you came in two years the would probably have there new coaster. And finally, you must eat a Funnel cake, they are sooo delicious.

 

Anyway I hope this helps.
