So, CW and the Maple Leafs share a bit in common with MiA and the Lions, eh? ;)

At least the Lions have a better chance of getting a Super Bowl title than MIA getting a new coaster.

You'll eat your words before you know it my friend!

It may be awhile, but we'll eventually get both!!
This is my super lame signature where I will mention the words "roller coaster" and "theme park"

I think in the future, MIA will get a new coaster before the lions win a super bowl.

So interesting topic of discussion, what could the large redevelopment program be?


According to Phillips, Wonderland will be undergoing a large redevelopment program after Sept. 1. Currently, SkyRider sits on 5,100 square metres of prime space right between the Splash Works and the mountain. Here, Wonderland saw an opportunity.

“We like to space out (our ideas) over time and we always want to be innovative and leading the industry,” Phillips said. “Guests still like it and it’s a great attraction, but you have to look within the park to understand what’s best for the future.”

“The plan is to develop the land for future use. It’s on a prime piece of land in the middle of our park,” Phillips said of SkyRider.

“Based on our history at the park, if you look at what’s happened since 2008, we’ve put in two of the top 10 fastest coasters in North America and we’re ranked as one of the top three parks in North America. We’ve put in Behemoth and Leviathan. I can’t define how long it will take, but guests should be excited (about what’s to come),” he added.

So interesting topic of discussion, what could the large redevelopment program be?
