Canada's Wonderland Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I mean its kinda grasping at straws, but maybe, juuuust maybe, construction on anything new in the land clearing around behemoth and Skyrider's grave hasn't begun due to the close proximity of the water park. Any trucks would kick up lots of dust posing a possible heath risk to the very packed Splash Works. I agree that this theory doesn't explain the lack of teasing for 2017, but you never know. Thoughts?

Doubt we'll be getting anything big, but people also have to remember that other large announcements haven't happened until the very end of August (ie. Guardian).

Warning to KD fans, don't continue to read if you're still upset. New signs of construction as of today and Wonderland has confirmed an announcement coming.

Could someone let me know which rides have photos on them? I'm assuming at least Leviathan and Behemoth do but I am clueless about any others

Flight Deck, Behemoth, Stunt Coaster, The Fly, Leviathan, and maybe Guardian and Skyhawk. They take your picture to show your scores on those rides though I'm not sure if you can buy them.

Flight Deck got rid of on-ride photos a couple of years ago. Backlot Stunt Coaster had finally gotten rid of the on-ride photos last year and the on-ride photo building was removed during the 2015/2016 off-season. Behemoth, Ghoster Coaster, Leviathan, The Fly, and Taxi Jam have on-ride photos available for purchase. Wonder Mountain's Guardian and Skyhawk do have on-ride photos, although they are not available for purchase as they're only momentarily featured on a TV at the exit.

Well they also could have realized there's no need to tease... why spend money on something you don't have to do

 

Thats true. Although teasing mostly consists of telling Tony Clark to think up something and tweet it. It's not like teasing costs that much money...

 

I am actually quite confident we will be receiving that green B&M track. I remember from the photos it looked like there was lift hill track, so floorless/standing(probablynot)/wingrider. Even dive coaster would be possible but it didn't look like dive track. Wingrider would make the most sense because of Ziz

^I cannot believe that you still think a coaster is possible for next year, i really can't, and you say you're actually confident, wow. There's NO chance that the park would go without teasing a large coaster, just absolutely no chance at all. With the flat rides mentioned above they're all different and they're not a massive coaster, it's so much different. There'd be a massive amount of land clearing going on at this stage, not just stakes in the ground. Plus, an announcement would have likely already have happened by now for certain and if not the park would be doing a large amount of teasing. Trust me, if a coaster was coming, we'd know about it for sure. And by teasing no, they don't just use social media to stir things up, with a large coaster it's usually more than that.

well funny you mention that.. did you look at the ppictures, theres land clearing, the removal of skyrider two years ago to make room for something new. Where did I say I was confident though lol.. NO where. I if you follow CWMania on facebook have stated I do not think it's coming in 2017, and that this is prep work for 2018.

^With Leviathan we already knew for certain they were getting a coaster at this point because the announcement had been made. Plenty of land clearing was going on and footers were being worked on by now too. An Internet search brings up pictures from the 18th of August 2011 which showed track was already on site.

Thanks for correcting me, shows how much I pay attention to those photos.

"The capital announcement date is still pending and instead of waiting, we wanted to announce our 2017 Season Pass offer to make sure guests can take advantage of the last two weeks of August with the free ticket and free Fast Lane Plus offer."

 

So my guess is early September for an announcement date then, wonder what the holdup could be.

Hey at least your not being teased for a planet snoopy expansion. (Sorry too soon?)

What's so bad about a Planet Snoopy expansion?

 

If you look online, Canada's Wonderland has a massive kids area. It's got so many rides and really looks so beautiful compared to other cedar fair parks. Canada's Wonderland is also the most attended seasonal park. If you go into the kids area on any given day its crazy busy with large families that come in large groups and buy lots of food and do lots of repeat visits and visit the water park and spend there too, where as dry park fans come in groups of 1-2 on average and spend less then large families with kids. A park seeking to invest in families and kids is THE SMARTEST decision a park can make.

 

I think these smaller cedar fair parks are learning something from Wonderland and basic business knowledge and investing in the right area's to entice repeats visits which results in higher earnings. Families spend more then teenagers and young adults at amusement parks, end of story.
