Canada's Wonderland Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Well if that tag is correct, and I'm going to go ahead and say it is, then my theory from an hour ago is dead in the water.....hello B&M giga

 

EDIT: Also, I'm not sure if there's a pecking order in which B&M has their track delivered, whether it be just load it and go or furthest from the staging area first etc., but that piece on the truck looks to be the slanted brake runs that hold the LIMs. Could that be the rumored launch as well? I would assume they'd use LIMs instead of hydraulics

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

Go to CW site.  Click to buy something like a season pass.  You'll see it in the popup transaction window.  Under 2021 Season Pass -> 2021 Add Ons.  

Can confirm, CF doesn't care which park you go to first with your paper voucher for a Platinum Pass.  You'll get your photo taken and be issued a card that has whatever park you go to first on the bac

I never paid too much attention in Structures class but" Giga Coaster Piers" would pretty much confirm that they are going to make a man-made lake. Otherwise, why would they need piers.

 

Or could be a new nickname for Piers.

I gotta say, I'm a little short of breath... Holy mother of mercy.

 

And maybe there's some launched section, too? That is very, very naughty...

Who knew the biggest project of the year would all of a sudden be at CW? Seemed to come out of nowhere to me. Im very excited to see the layout and the stats. Also how they can make this different than Behemoth. I knew B&M would not let us down

Well...huh! And what does Piers have to do with this??!?!

 

 

So many jokes, so little class I could show... But either way, a massive erection shall rise in Vaughn, Ontario.

 

(You're on your own from there.)

 

I'm actually now very curious as to what spurred B&M to jump into the Giga game- or if it's just a new term for a type of coaster/scale of coaster instead of the terms that Intamin has given out for an over 300 foot coaster. It would seem odd that B&M is only now getting into the 300 footer game- but then again, I rule nothing out when it comes to parks and ride designers.

OMG!!! Was not expecting this at all! I think we're going to be seeing something completely different from both Behemoth and the Intamin Gigas. Not exactly sure what they're going to do, but I'm looking for B&M to really push the envelope, maybe even consider a launch. Cedar Fair is really showing a commitment to CW, which is great for a country without very many coasters. I'm going to need to get back to ride this, as well as get all the other credits that I missed. Extremely excited for this.

This, Hershey and Dollywood. The holy coaster trinity trip 2012. I can't wait!

 

I think Thursday's announcement is going to be amazing just to see what B&M has up its sleeve for layout and train design. There's still a lot to find out!

 

I was thinking the exact same thing about Piers. I think there will be a bar up top serving beer before heading down....

I feel like having an announcement party!

 

I'm down for that.

 

I cannot wait, very excited as well to see what B&M has up their sleeve...this truly has been a roller coaster ride in itself...

 

First a quote from a credible source, then one from a person who isn't all that respected in the industry (deserved or not I cannot say), and then one from the man himself, Mr Kinzel confirming a record breaking coaster? Wow...this will for sure be a great adventure until opening day. I was curious if I'd be buying a 2012 season pass...this pretty much just sealed the deal for sure.

I don't think it's a "plain" giga...it wouldn't make sense for the park to just install a bigger version of Behemoth, especially since they only put Behemoth in 3 years ago. I bet there's some other feature, whether it be a launch, wing seats, dive coaster or even just a radically different layout with more twists and turns.

 

I bet the name is Leviathan...Behemoth and Leviathan are both Biblical creatures, so it would make sense that Leviathan would want to steal CW's thunder from its Biblical brother. Plus it's just an incredibly epic name.

 

No matter what the ride ends up being, I may have to go north of the border next year

I'm just happy it didn't have a stupid viral marketing campaign. Sorry, but it's much more interesting to see stakes appear, construction begin out of nowhere, and finally track roll on site without any previous hints or official suggestions from the park.....or did I miss those along the line somewhere? Either way, this surprise has actually been somewhat enjoyable thus far.
