Re: CWMania is Signing Off

I learned and developed so much thanks to this site. It's sad to see it end, but I completely understand. One day soon, I feel someone will create a new place for all of us CWManiacs. The Facebook group just isn't the same... I contributed to the discussions when I could and stayed silent on areas I...

Re: Leviathan

I believe it was 200 miles, but yes, I'm aware of that story behind us getting Leviathan. But the official Wonderland ride plaque for Leviathan lists the manufactured name as "Giga Coaster." That's what confuses me. Dragon Fyre is listed as "Double-Loop Corkscrew," Minebuster as "Shooting Star," Whi...

California's Great America is currently building RailBlazer , a rocky Mountain Construction prototype Raptor track coaster. Identical to Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Coaster opening at Six Flags Fiesta Texas this year, RailBlazer will feature single-file seating which puts each rider in a straddle posi...

Re: Valleyfair!

Valleyfair is building Delirious, a Larson Super Loop, within their recently rebranded Route 76 section of the park. It definitely suits the classic ride theme, but I'm very happy we didn't get this. Being held upside down is simply not my thing.

In case you missed it, Knott's Berry Farm announced and is currently building a new roller coaster: Hangtime ! Standing at 150 feet tall, this custom designed Gerstlauer infinity coaster will be the first dive coaster on the West Coast, featuring a 96 degree initial drop, a total of five inversions,...

Re: Future Enjoyment sign spotted

It would be the first roller coaster in Wonderland since the opening of Time Warp in 2004 to have inversions. Yeah, I was doing research for a possible off-season update for my YouTube channel that would have talked about that. We've gotten four new coasters since Time Warp, none of which have inve...

Re: Proposed Hotel

I definitely do not see a hotel ready to open by the 2019 season.... the land hasn't even been dug up yet or to the best of my knowedge approved by the municipality. Realistically I would say 2021 would be the closest to a grand opening. As this article describes, a Great Wolf Lodge resort can be b...

Re: New Parking Garage for 2018?

Well Wonderland can at least dig deeper than Cedar Point. :P

As unsightly as it is, I'm sure an above-ground parking structure is much cheaper. Maybe the future Vaughan hospital will be wiling to make its parking structure usable as Wonderland overflow?

Re: Leviathan

Does anyone know why Leviathan is listed as a Hyper Coaster on rcdb? The official manufactured name is listed in the park as "Giga Coaster," as can be found on the placard mounted to the operator's booth. It also, like all Giga coasters, focusses more on speed than airtime (the focus of hyper coaste...

Cedar Fair Annual Additions (Spreadsheet)

This is a document I've been using to track Cedar Fair's annual additions (as well as a couple predictions). It is colour coded for ease of tracking types of additions (e.g. Thrill rides) by the chain. I went back as far as the Paramount acquisition in 2006. I couldn't think of a good way to share ...

Yeah, a photographer in Planet Snoopy would be a great idea. With FunPix, I believe there's a photo spot or two around the areas you mentioned, but a professional photo would be great. Anyone else looking forward to new merchandise to match Lumberjack and Flying Canoes? I'd buy a foam axe or plush c...

Re: New For 2018- Lumberjack, Flying Canoes, and Splash Island Expansion

Anyone know exactly where they’re putting flying canoes? I heard rumours it's taking over Launch Pad's plot of land, but I haven't seen any official word. If true, that would make me Launch Pad's last guest ever (don't judge; I had a camera and was filming in that back area when they were closing o...
