Canada's Wonderland Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Edgeboy, there has never been a year-round haunted house open to the public. However, most of Wonderland's Halloween Haunt mazes are indeed set up, in tents and in the mountain, but these have never been open to the public during the regular season.

 

I don't known where you heard that. It sounds like the rumour people used to say back in the 80's, when the mountain use to rotate at 12 noon everyday.

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

If you look at his reply comment, he corrected his mistake and realized it was the Maison Rouge at La Ronde. Although, it would be neat to have a year round haunted attraction outside of the Halloween Haunt season at Canada's Wonderland.

I am going tomorrow. Anyone know how crowds are like on the Tuesday after a long weekend?

 

The crowds should be quite decent, based on previous experience of visiting the park after a long weekend. Enjoy your day at the park!

Vaughan, ON, Aug. 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Canada’s Wonderland will be adding two new rides, Lumberjack and Flying Canoes, along with an expanded play and splash area for children in 2018.

 

Lumberjack is a thrill ride that will take guests soaring to heights of 75 feet (21m) on two swinging axe pendulums, propelling them into a looping 360 degree experience.

 

Flying Canoes is an interactive family ride that will allow riders to control their journey of flight in two-person canoes that rotate speedily around a circuit.

 

Splash Island’s children’s pool in Splash Works will be expanded to double its size and feature all-new interactive spray features.

 

“Each year, we are dedicated to providing our guests with new world-class thrills and family entertainment,” Canada’s Wonderland vice president and general manager Norm Pirtovshek said. “For the 2018 season, our three new attractions will add to our diverse collection of rides and experiences that will capture the imagination of thrill seekers of all ages.”

 

2018 Season Passes are now on sale for the lowest price of the year, and include unlimited visits in 2018 plus one free visit during the remainder of the 2017 season, excluding Halloween Haunt. For more information, or to purchase tickets, visit www.canadaswonderland.com. The best offer ends October 29, 2017.

I was expecting a Planet Snoopy Expansion, but this is a very nice surprise! I'm glad that Canada's Wonderland always goes for more than one Ride genre for new additions. Lumberjack looks like a well themed flat ride and will most certainly be more comfortable than the defunct Jet Screeam! Flying Canoes looks very interesting, and will be fun for families, and I can't wait to see how it runs! The Splash Island expansion, while not as exciting, will be a welcome addition to the ever-growing water park. All sorts of guests will love the new additions, and 2018 will be yet another successful year for Canada's Wonderland!

I Really like how Wonderland is going to be adding these as part of their already great collection. I think Wonderland should be dubbed as the Flat Ride Capital of the World! I wasn't ever a fan of JetScream but the Lumberjack Ride surly makes up for the missing ride type of Jetscream, At least or I think it won't Stay upside down like JetScream did and having to pendulums side by side flipping will be a great experience. I also think throughout the 2018 Season we will see more signs and teasers and more prep work for 2019 Coaster(I Hope!)

I don't hate the addition: I think Wonderland's collection of flats is about as strong as anything anywhere. But I'm also a bit like "Maybe build some more indoor stuff? You're in Toronto?"

Also is it just me or does Cedar Fair seem to have a fetish for wood and timber themed rides lately?

 

They do everywhere but with this, Soaring Timbers and some of their other recent additions I feel like they're pushing it really hard at Wonderland. I sort of feel like they're trying to make everything feel as Canadian as possible but it's a really cliche Canadian theme. Just theme everything to timber, pine trees and rocks. Oh... and put a f*cking bear out front for no reason. Canadians love bears. The waterslide? I don't know, name it... Muskoka plunge. Google says that Muskoka is a place in Canada. It's perfect. Market research complete. 99% of park guests arrive to the park riding a moose. They love that sh*t.

They are missing out on a Meet the Mountie greeting area and a water slide called Niagara Falls.

Lumberjack looks good. This park just kills it in the flat ride department. The variety (and quality!) they have is outstanding. They could add 5 more roller coasters back-to-back and still be a well-rounded park. Impressive!
