I can see Windseeker becoming a popular attraction for enthusiasts this year, lol

Future Enjoyment sign spotted

I was at the park on Saturday with friends and we noticed a new fence/sign right near the former location of Skyrider. Just thought I'd share a photo of it. Any thoughts?

Re: New Parking Garage for 2018?

Maybe they are markings for the rumoured hotel to be completed in 2019? I guess we'll have to wait and see... :z

Re: Muskoka Plunge and Soaring Timbers

I just got to ride Soaring Timbers today... Me and my friends rode it a couple times. Though the gondolas feel a little crammed with almost no arm room (we couldn't fasten/unfasten our seat belts when asked, cause we suffered from T-Rex arms, lol), it was a fun ride. It kind of felt like the love ch...

Re: Flat Rides You'd Like To See At Wonderland

While I think CW has an amazing flat ride collection, I would totally luv to see a "Blender" added to the lineup... It looks like so much fun and I can only imagine all the "butterflies" it would produce! :-)

Re: Minebuster Future?

Has anyone else noticed the orange stakes around the tunnel of Minebuster that have shown up over the past few weeks? There was also a little red flag nearby... With all the wooden coaster closings (and now conversions) that CF is doing, I have a feeling there'll be an announcement about Minebuster ...

Re: SkyRider Closing On September 1

Thanks StEC! I was very impressed by the love it's getting... Freestyle is living the life as Cavallino's 'Big Bad Coaster'. I had fun encouraging people to try it with me, and everyone enjoyed it... Some even re-rode it with me :-) The rest of the park was very peaceful and comfy. The collection of...

Re: Luke is reunited with SkyRider in its new life as Freest

Thanks JSL and JL! It's my pleasure to share! I never thought to ask about the catwalk... I think your theory is probably right. I was very impressed with the maintenance too! There's no graffiti on the rides, everything is clean and polished, and it runs better than ever. I don't remember my feet l...

Luke is reunited with SkyRider in its new life as Freestyle

Here's my first trip report about my visit with Freestyle (formerly our SkyRider) at Cavallino Matto in Castagneto Carducci, Italy. I visited the park for two days in May of 2016 and had a great time, especially on Freestyle. It's smoother and even slightly faster than it ever was here. http://www.l...

Re: SkyRider Closing On September 1

Thanks for sharing the photos and video, Lumist! I've been wondering ever since it opened at Cavallino Matto during June of 2015, does Freestyle operate with two trains? I'm wondering because when it opened last year, there was a green train and now this year, there's an orange train. 8) My pleasur...

Re: SkyRider Closing On September 1

Congratulations Lumist, you are the first CWManiac to ride Freestyle! I only rode her twice on her last week at Wonderland. I really miss her, SkyRider was/is a beautiful coaster. Thanks HM! Skyrider was great and it's smoother, prettier and the star of its new home... Couldn't be happier with what...

Re: SkyRider Closing On September 1

It's been a while since a post has appeared here... After learning of SkyRider's move to Tuscany I immediately began saving for a trip to visit it. In May of this year I got to ride our former ride in its second life as Freestyle... I had an amazing two days at the park, learned a lot about the proj...
