They are similar. Ninja Turtles is a Gerstalauer Sky Fly, and Skyhawk is a Gerstalauer Sky Roller.

Sky Roller stays level:

Spectacular addition! The Sky Rollers are great rides, an with the added height it will be awesome!
No. 1 Water Park guy!
The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

If I hear weeeees coming out of Robb Alvey then I know this is going to be a great ride, especially with the added height and being on top of a hill!

Location confirmed across from Windseeker next to Slingshot!

Ah yes, the classic "Alvey Accelerometer", a very good way to judge a ride!

Extra height could be due to the hill it's sitting on.
Top 5 Steel Coasters:
1: Le Vampire, La Ronde 2: Mindbender, Galaxyland 3: Tie: Behemoth, Canada's Wonderland -- Goliath, La Ronde 4: Leviathan, Canada's Wonderland 5: Skyrider R.I.P. :(, Canada's Wonderland

Are they going to do anything like fix the rest of wilde beast, or fix the minebuster which is going from YORO (you only ride once) to DERO (don't even ride once)

just like the leafs, Ya gotta believe ...

With three off years in a row in regards to significant additions I might just take the year off from Wonderland next year.

- Guardian.....shootem up ride with outdated graphics and is already seemingly falling apart

- This year we got a used Water Slide and a used splash pad complex.

-Next year we get a flat ride almost every other park has and another flat which will probably good fun but won't be worth the inevitable 1 and half to 2 hour wait.

-our 2017 coaster will probably get "stolen" by Kings Island or Kings Dominion and if it isn'nt I am sure an extra years wait will not be worth it for a Wingrider lol

The best addition we have received since Leviathan was an upcharge ride in Slingshot. :lmao:
Coaster Count: 187

Leviathan Count: 244
