Canada's Wonderland Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

My brother knows it fits, that's not the problem. The problem is this, is there enough time to focus the screen to your eye prescription, before the train leaves the station, so that you are not going around with a blurry screen? No one seems to be able to tell us that.

Hey all! Few questions for anyone that can help as I will be making my first ever trip to CW this weekend. Planning on spending the evening of Saturday and most of Sunday in the park. I don't wanna be that person but are July Sunday crowds manageable? Also fastlane plus is $67 online, whats the usual in park price and is there a in park discount for platinum pass holders? Thanks!

Wolfbobs, hope for a little overcast, and you'll be fine. The later you stay, the less crowds there are. Most of the teenagers go home for dinner and then come back later in the evening. I have a season pass, so I have never bought a Wonderland Fast pass, however, if on Sunday morning, the weather is great and there are big line-ups at front gate, then a Fast pass might be the best option for you. On a busy day, it is very difficult to go on every ride at Wonderland, just not a lot of high capacity rides and coasters.

Next up on the cutting board should be Time Warp

 

I doubt it would be going anywhere.....it is still actually one of the "newer" coasters in the park if we are talking last 10 years.

Also...it hardly takes up much of a land footprint..so even if it was removed....I doubt there would be room to put in the launched giga invert RMC with flyer and winged elements that some of the fans would like.

Even though it's one of the newer coasters, it's rough and unliked by many. Also to address the small footprint, they could remove Flight Deck as well (another ride that is rough and unliked by many) that is nearby. Together, they would free up a lot of land if they were taken down.

 

These rides are perfect for smaller parks. If SkyRider sold, these will sell no problem.

 

I also really miss SkyRider. It was so much fun had the best ejector airtime in the park, which was even crazier standing up. We're missing a really good sit down steel looping/ inverting coaster, launched or not. I keep wishing for a world class looping/ inverting Intamin coaster like Taron or Maverick to really round out Wonderland. Even Premier and Gerstlauer build some great stuff (Karnan at Hansa Park looks amazing). I'd even take a third hyper coaster if it was a clone of Superman, Goliath or Expedition Ge-Force to show Canadians what an awesome hyper is really like. Only thing is Behemoth's queue would keep shrinking if that happens . I just hope we're done with B&M coasters for a while, with the exception of inverts since they honestly build the best in that category.

Yes I'd rather have an intamin blitz rather than a B&M wing rider. We already have an invert so I doubt they would install a new one and remove yet another coaster.

^Which means you rather wait in long lines.

If it's a kick A$$ ride, I'm pretty sure enthusiasts would be fine with long lines.

Not just enthusiasts but also the GP. The GP will wait 2 hours plus 45 minutes for the front row of top thrill dragster, and there is clearly a reason for that.

I was wondering if anyone is going to the park tomorrow (Wednesday, July 13) and is interested in meeting up. I was going with two friends but they are probably backing out because the 30-40% of rain. Personally that doesn't stop me from going but it's not as much fun if I'm alone. I can meet you at the park, or if you're somewhere near the Milton area we can maybe carpool (I have a season's parking pass). Let me know if you're interested.

I gotta say, last week was the first time I ever went to the park on my own (my two friends ditched me at last moment) and I don't think I ever had a better time. I went on the Wednesday ( hottest day of the year) and didn't wait in any single line for more then a few minutes, including Behemoth. The line for Leviathan only took about 10 minutes or so. I got there for 10am and left at 2:30pm because I went on all the thrill rides I wanted to go on (except Sledgehammer because surprise surprise it was down for the day). Probably helped the water park was pretty full, but still.

I was at the park yesterday and it was really busy by mid afternoon. Sledgehammer was running off and on, just like every time I go. I had the oddest thing happen on Thunder Run. It was the first ride I went on when I got there as I was with my sister and her kids. The lights were left on inside the mountain, so you could the track and everything inside.
