Re: Wonder Mountain's Guardian - New for 2014!

So another update from yesterday. Glasses were still dirty. There was one train with all the guns not working. The gun I used was fully detached from the base but still worked (I even got 1st place on my side of the train :doh:). Sadly, the only thing that I enjoy about the ride now is the surprise ...

Re: SkyRider to Close on Labour Day

Was in the park last night. With the bad weather I got two rides at the front with little to zero wait. As with all coasters, the front was butter smooth especially after all the rain.

Kings Island skyline is certainly different without SOB now. Banshee looks good too!

Re: Typhoon & Splash Station New in 2015!

^ Still... I'm surprised they don't have the new logos posted as a large picture when you first visit the site.

You would think they would promote it big and flashy. "NEW FOR 2015!"

Re: The Next Coaster...

BTW: White Water Canyon's forest has thinned a lot this year! Lots of tree stumps and branches just lying on the forest floor! I could practically see the base of the waterfall from the queue line, and could actually see the top of the tunnel's exit! Even by the area that's been closed off, it look...

Re: Speculation: New For 2015

Interestingly, the Mamba trademark was not used for the new water slide. :hmm: If CW wants to sell Season Passes, They better have some creative thinking. One new water slide and a kids area won't sell 2 million season passes. Have to hope for some Re-Branding and a Huge Update to make Splashworks e...

Re: The Bat Queue Line

I was exactly thinking about this too last week when I visited the park with some friends. We went to the single rider lineup just to avoid the long line up in the sun.

(Note: the single rider lineup is covered partially by the station when it is short)

Yes it looked like Corn Stalkers... unless if they are revamping the maze for something new this year.

Last week when I went to the park I saw them setting up stuff near the WWC area.

Re: SkyRider Closing On September 1

^ Where is our announcement date then? Carowinds already has one for Fury325/Centurion. I also think it's hard to ignore that the closure of Skyrider matches the last day of operation for Splashworks. Why not close Skyrider earlier in the season then? I believe the reason Canada's Wonderland isn't ...

Re: Halloween Haunt 2014

^ I thought with Season Pass, Haunt tickets were cheaper? Around $20 or so?

And if you really want to just enjoy all the mazes in one night, just go early in the season or just buy fast pass.

Re: SkyRider Closing On September 1

I was at the park today with a group of friends out of the country. I ironically saw the news today on my mobile phone and decided to ride Skyrider with my friends. We all came to the same conclusion... while the ride is certainly unique, it gave us all a headache and an uncomfortable experience. Al...

Re: Wonder Mountain's Guardian - New for 2014!

Just came back from the park today. Not really happy about the lockers but my group left our stuff in the lockers for the full 2 hours (even though the wait for Guardian today was 30 min or so).

This time my glasses were filthy. Everyone in line said the same thing.

Re: SkyRider Closing On September 1

Because it takes time to deconstruct a coaster?

Did Kings Island remove SOB and Banshee all in a year? I can't remember. Bad memory.
