^ It looked to me like a patio overhaul was about to happen. Who knows though.

Also, the Mountainside Bakery is just a cuter looking Starbucks. The cake pops and other treats are all from the Starbucks "bakery"... not to knock it, just don't go there expecting to get something new an exciting. Personally, I'm glad to see another spot where I can get my Starbucks fix in the park lol.

No need for an apology Ty, I'm just happy that I was the one who noticed it. We had no idea they were re-theming Kidzville. I did think they should have put in Camp Snoopy, but a Canadian theme works well too. If the signs are temporary, maybe next year the area will be Camp Snoopy. What about Wonder Tour and SilverStreak? Maybe they will be re-themed next year too. Congratulations Wonderland! Maybe we'll get a theming award like Darien Lake did a few years back.
:yes: :yes: :yes: 3 big thumbs up!

Does anyone have any pics of all the re-themed stuff in Kidzville?

New sign at the front gate store Ty, but any merchandise in there that's less than 5 years old?
How about my Canada's Wonderland Pin Trading dream?

I noticed a few things that were new this year that weren't mentioned here before. I noticed that they painted a few more of Orbiter's cars dark blue as last year they had repainted one car blue. Also, I noticed that the majority of Vortex's track was repainted except for the lift hill and the over banked turn. Also while I was stopped on Vortex's brake-run, I noticed that the observation bridge for Timberwolf Falls was re-cemented and new wood was applied. That is all I noticed that is new for now! I'll try to get some photos of the repaints next time I visit. I should be going back next Friday for another visit. 8)

It's a shame that they got rid of that coaster mural in the main store did anyone know how long that was there?

It was there since the mid '90's.

One thing I noticed while I was at the park today was that the original park logo has been added to the front of Thunder Run's train. I was glad to see they put one on for the park's 35th anniversary and Thunder Run's 30th anniversary! I like it when the park adds these small historical details!

Another thing I would like to mention is that tickets for the park's 35th anniversary are on sale now!The 35th anniversary tickets save you $28 off the front gate admission and are only valid on Monday, May 23, 2016. For more details on the tickets, click here. 8)

I know Silver Streak's supports were re-painted for the 2014 season to a whitish-grey but, I think that was all. I rode Silver Streak yesterday and didn't notice that the track was re-painted. 8)

Oh, okay John. I haven't been in Kidzville for a couple of years now. My kids have grown out of that area.

On my way to work yesterday, I heard something on the radio about a Tarzan experience at Canada's Wonderland. Does anyone have any information on that?

I'm not too sure as to what it was but, what I do know is that it was a promotional event held by Warner Bros. on Saturday, June 11th from 2pm-6pm to promote their new Tarzan movie coming out in theaters on July 1st. Participants of this event had a chance to win Canada's Wonderland season passes. It seemed to be a one time event that was held within Action Zone. It was mentioned on their Facebook page, as well as on Z 103.5's website when I had done a Google search about it. 8)
