While not completely related to the operation of Canada's Wonderland, the park was used in a completely different way earlier this week to keep a tradition alive due to current COVID-19 restrictions i

Plus turning the park into a resort would be more appealing to thrill-seekers... some parks like CP have an ERT system due to the hotels which mean that more thrill seekers get more time which brings in more people who will tell more of their friends and family and it all repeats, repeats, repeats, repeats, repeats, repeats, repeats, repeats, repeats, repeats, repeats, repeats, repeats, repeats, repeats, repeats, repeats, repeats, repeats, repeats, repeats, repeats,

I think at CW we have seasons pass nights, not sure about mornings. Although a couple years ago at least I remembered getting into the waterpark early too.

 

But due to the fact that we only really have 2-3 rides worth travelling across the globe (Vortex is a real classic and one of the only ones left), I doubt that CW would be really the number 1 destination.

CANADA'S WONDERLAND TO ADD WET & WILD THRILLS WITH TWO NEW ATTRACTIONS IN 2017

VAUGHAN, ON, Aug. 26, 2016 /CNW/ - Canada's Wonderland announced today it will be showcasing two new unique and adrenaline-pumping attractions in 2017. With the addition of towering water slides in Splash Works and a new thrill ride that will be the first of its kind in North America, guests will experience two exhilarating parks and one memorable 2017 season.

 

Muskoka Plunge, a 60 ft. (18 m) tall waterslide complex featuring four speed slides, will kick-off the summer fun in Splash Works. Riders will feel the adrenaline rush when they step into an enclosed launch chamber and suddenly plummet into a high-speed free fall through S-curves and 360° loops at speeds of approximately 40 km/h.

 

For thrill-seekers that prefer to stay dry, Canada's Wonderland will be adding to its arsenal of world-class thrill rides with Soaring Timbers. This unique ride experience will send guests spiraling through the sky on two massive rotating gondolas that swing riders through sweeping arcs while rotating 360 degrees.

 

Canada's Wonderland has also recently announced a limited time offer on 2017 Season Passes for only $68.99 ($21.00 less than the current Season Pass price). As an additional benefit to purchasing next year's Season Pass now, new Passholders will receive one free visit this year and renewing Passholders will receive one free 2016 Fast Lane Plus pass, valid for one day this season.

Canada's Wonderland is owned and operated by Cedar Fair Entertainment Company, a publicly traded partnership that is listed for trading on The New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "FUN." In addition to Canada's Wonderland, Cedar Fair owns and operates 10 other amusement parks, two water parks, one indoor water park, and five hotels. Cedar Fair also operates the Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park in California under a management contract.

I was definitely expecting one of the Tornado slides to make their way over, but this is a great addition for now.

 

Drop pod slides are something that I'm totally fine with being a carbon copy. Every water park should look into investing in them. And Soaring Timbers looks absolutely crazy. I think I may visit next year just to get on it. Can't wait to see everyone complain about the name. It's just good to see Wonderland investing in unique rides that compliment their lineup, not just bulk buys like Larson Loops.

What on Earth is that flat ride? That is one of the weirdest looking rides I've ever seen!

 

I would say that this is a solid addition, something substantial for both the dry and wet side of the park.

Before all the whining, moaning and bitching starts, I just want to say that personally, this is exactly what I expected for 2017, and more. The drop pod slides seem to be just what splashworks needed, and will definitely help them compete with other local water parks. The new flat ride also seems like a great addition. It's no coaster, but from what I've seen on YouTube, it should be a pretty thrilling ride.

Canada's Wonderland has a disgusting flat ride lineup - Giant Enterprise, UFO, Top Scan, Cliffhanger, Sky Roller, Jump2, Revolution, Windseeker, Swing Around, Calypso, and now this. Some of those only have 1 or 2 other examples in North America, if at all (that Jump2 is the only one ever built).

The drop slide installations seem to be very popular with guests across the chain, so I think it is a good move.

 

That flat ride looks amazing! Going to want to keep the hose and disinfectant close at hand though.

Very cool! After visiting parks where after riding the coasters and finding absolutely nothing to do for thrill seekers for the rest of the day, especially hard for anyone twho may not like coasters, these are great additions. I'm always in awe of how many different types of attractions are at CW. It's great to see them keep adding unique flat rides. I absolutely loved SkyHawk this year and these two new attractions seem like another great fit.

Those are two amazing additions to Canada's Wonderland! I had a strong feeling that we would be seeing an addition of a drop slide complex. But, the Soaring Timbers was a surprise! I am glad to see that they are adding another amazing Mondial ride! A Mondial Inferno appears to be an amazing ride! By the sounds of it, Soaring Timbers will be added to White Water Canyon section of the park. This may lead to the removal of Timberwolf Falls but, I am not too sure as of right now. I can't wait to see where it will be placed! I'm already looking forward to next year! Well done once again Canada's Wonderland!

So, is the slide tower going in Skyriders spot? Just curious. And why does Canada get all the cool flats? Are they afraid to bring them to America? And lastly. 2017 is looking very B&Mless, unless Six Flags adds one...Which is unlikely.

This site is way to B&M happy. There are some other very good and unique coaster manufactures out there

 

Why does cw need so many water and flat rides?

 

Well there waterpark is thin, and CW has an amazing flat ride collection that continues to get better every year. A lot of the coasters at CW are low capacity so having an extremely solid flat collection helps spread the love

I think it's really cool that this park is sticking with their unique flat rides in a sea of CF parks that have almost none or just cookie cutter flats.

Some of those only have 1 or 2 other examples in North America, if at all (that Jump2 is the only one ever built).

 

 

I agree! I really liked CW the last time I was there, and it was before Leviathan was even added. Their unique flat ride collection is awesome, and I'm excited to give this new addition a whirl next time I'm up there!

In regards to Soaring Timbers, will this be the first park installation of this type of ride? I have only seen it featured on German fairgrounds.

I mean, isn't this only the second installation of a Mondial Inferno at all? The only other example of this ride I've ever known of is the traveling Airwolf. I've heard it's one of the craziest flat rides ever designed.

 

EDIT: On-ride video:

Yeah, I'm not B&M happy, I was just making an observation that Cedar Fair was breaking the trend. I got no problems with there being no new B&M's in 2017 in North America. I also would love to see other coaster manufacturers come and build more in America. But it's looking like 2017 will be a very GCI and S&S kind of year.

^Honestly, here in the states, 2017 is proving to be just a "down" year in general for new coaster additions everywhere (besides the S&S Free Fly's, I guess). Considering 2016 was such an EPIC year for new coasters around the world, and even a bunch here in the States, I'm not really too surprised, however.

I can finally breathe. So happy CW didn't end up like KD this year. Too Soon? Jokes aside tho, so happy about the Soaring Timbers ride. I love a good flat ride, gives me that CNE feeling a lot. Plus the new water park additions is a good fit, another excuse for me to hit the gym for next summer.

 

Anyways, it's weird that CF only added one coaster this year, and it isn't a B&M. Makes you think why they spent so little this year. Looks like 2018 is our new coaster year......hopefully.
