Canada's Wonderland Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Gah! I'm going to lose my mind! I provide high quality pictures for TPR and CWMania and I get "attitude" from a member from the other site because they thought I posted the pictures here before CWMania... Gah. It's my own home park and the Fanboys are driving me nuts!

 

Anyways, at least I know all my TPR family appreciate the updates (and most over at the other site too)! Haha. And yes, I know a lot of you love my Canadian Nick stories as well!

 

The "Haunt booth" has been placed at the front of the park again near the fountains. Terror of London will be the new Haunt this year. I've heard it's going to be just as well done as Blood on the Bayou was last season.

 

Just a day and a half until the big announcement!

If anyone can get a look at the manufacturers tag on the track we can possibly see what the coaster is.

 

X-Works is the code for Wing Coaster. (BTW)

 

X-works has NOTHING to do with the coaster type as B&M have been using that code at the Ohio plant for the past three seasons now....long before the wingrider prototype opened in Europe.

RE: the "X-Works" code (just something I've picked up working for a company that does a lot of international shipping): that simply means the customer is responsible for picking up the goods at the factory dock; they are responsible for all shipping and transportation. It's used as a shipping designation worldwide. (Sometimes a manufacturer will include shipping and freight as part of the total cost of production, but not in this case.) FYI.

 

Whatever this ride is though, I'm super-psyched. And I really hope it's called Leviathan. That is a bitchen name.

GC could also refer to General Contractor. That box looks a bit small to hold a coaster seat, but ya never know. Thanks for the other pic since it really helps put the construction site into perspective.

General Contractor Seats doesn't make much sense to me.

One possiblitiy is that the box contains one seat (like a tester) to show off some kind of new seat design.

^^^Tallest coaster in Canada is a record it can break.

 

Oh, and do the eyes that pop up on the home screen look like a dragon? Teasing at a theme complementary to Dragon's Fyre, perhaps?

 

It could be a Leviathan.

 

Steve has decreed it and so it shall be!

(Definitely missed the name game before. Oops.)

So does this mean Cf has a gigacoaster monopoly, all they need is one in Knotts now and they will have pretty much blocked SF out of the market, unless SF spends huge sums of money to top their competition which I don't see happening imo.

 

I guess I should first see if the announcement is infact going to be a giga lol

B&M gigga would be interesting.

 

If it does end up being a giga, it would be quite a bit taller then B&M's previous tallest coaster. Strange for them to make such a leap forward, though I guess for the right amount of money anything's possible.

I think they realize they were becoming "dated" and decided to adjust to the changing of the times. More GP folks are becoming more aware of what theme parks are doing with facebook and know what the offerings are . I personally like the evolution of coasters. From intamins new track design to vekomas new launched lift to the wingwalker design.

I always thought the sheer bulkiness of the trains and track prevented much more height out of a B&M. There has to be a lot of weight/forces just looking at their overall structural designs. I could be wrong and somebody feel free to correct me if they know otherwise but if they were to go to 300+ feet something might have to change to support that weight.
