Canada's Wonderland Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

During my last visit I noticed 3 new footers literally right beside the first drop of Minebuster. You can see them from Behemoth and some parts of Minebuster. Idk if they're to reenforce part of Minebuster's structure in the future but they're there and near all the moved dirt that's been there forever. Seems weird they'd keep the ride open while putting improvements on it, no?

Looks like Cedar Fair is really trying to use their "regional branding" strategy on this park to make it uniquely Canadian. That landscaping coupled with the new park logo that includes the Canada Maple Leaf look to be a great start!
They really are! I was in the park the other day walking behind some executives and overheard that this years Muskoka Plunge is gonna be the start of marketing the water park with more Canadian elements. One specific thing he said was anything using a surf board or waves in the Splash Works branding in the park would become kayaks or canoes. He also said that later this season they are going to be announcing that Canada's Wonderland's season would be extended by about 2 1/2 months (I'm not sure if this would apply to this current season or would be implemented for the 2018 season). He also went on to say how this will be a challenge since some rides do not operate well in colder temperatures, so it will be interesting to see whats done. While he was saying all this they were walking along splash works towards minebuster and they passed the former Skyrider plot. I was hoping he was going to say something about a replacement ride on the old skyrider plot but he said nothing.

If those footers weren't right next to Minebuster, I'd be excited. Still interested to see what their purpose is, and already anxious for announcements for next year regardless. The waiting game begins.

There's some weird work being done around Minebuster. There 4 new footers, a cement funnel, 2 bulldozers aside from the Muskoka Plunge ones, and some red/ orange markers in the grass.

Minebuster would be a great candidate for an RMC remake...let's hope it happens.

 

It wont happen for sure, they already did some re-tracking this year. Just like on Wild Beast.

I would love to see Minebuster get the RMC treatment. As it is right now, I can't ride it. I barely fit in the cars (6'4"), and the lap bar sits right against my stomach. If I get jerked around just right, I'll get punched in the gut by the damn coaster. Not pleasant.

 

Wild Beast needs a hell of alot of love too, but at least I fit into those trains. And once in a while, it gives a decent ride.

 

I'm not gonna get my hopes up too soon here, but I feel like they have to eventually do something about/with both those coaters (not to mention Flight Death and Spine Warp).

Did Muskoka Plunge this weekend. Operations were insanely slow. Took 30 minutes when line was just 10 people. They were only running two slides. Did slow process where they weigh you individually and then do a safety spiel two at a time but only after last sliders were dropped. Making it at least 90 seconds between riders.

 

Been on drop slides before but never with operations so strict - nothing allowed even if held in hand. Lots of people turning around at the very top.

 

No roulette mode, standard drop countdown.

 

Ride itself was fine more a flat spiral than a loop. Going forward probably not worth the wait time.

 

I think version at Great Wolf Lodge Niagra was better and load times much quicker.

Its a terrible coaster for an rmc, its just a basic out and back. I already tried making an rmc version of it in rct, and I could find no way to make it special. Id say its best to destroy it and use its wood for a new rmc rather than rmc it.

If I had a dollar for every time people have said this about a coaster that ended up getting Iron Horsed and been wrong...

I found Wild Beast to be far less terrible personally but I guess it's a matter of opinion. I still think the first thing this park should do is remove the SLC and the Volare and use that spot for a ride that doesn't suck.

Or how about the empty pad they made for Skyrider three years back. Yes the clones aren't great but they help with capacity.
