Old Rides

Postby Scott84 » 28 Aug 2017, 23:24

How accurate is Wikipedia's page on Canada's Wonderland Former Rides and Attractions?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_former_and_renamed_Canada%27s_Wonderland_attractions

Some even list some of the rides as put in storage. Says Shiva's Fury is in pieces behind Splash Works.

Anyone remember riding any of these attractions?

I miss Shiva's Fury, Zumba Flume, Sky Rider, Bayern's Curve (Miss that horn!), etc.

Yeah Scott, it is pretty accurate. I remember riding the great whale of china. What a barf ride that was! I couldn't go on that ride today. I really miss Zumba Flume. I believe there is a video of that ride somewhere. If I find it, i'll add the link for you.

I found the video! It shows Zumba Flume around the 2:00 minute mark. It also shows Bayern Curve, people walking up the mountain, Yogi's Cave, the parrot show, yes, the parrot show. Man, I miss that view from the top of the mountain. It was an amazing view of the entire park. I bet it would still be amazing today. It also shows people with their all-day-passes around their necks. they were basically, a piece of printed cardboard and I think I still have one laying around the house somewhere. If I ever come across it, I will post a pic of it.

You could have got a view from the top of the mountain yesterday if you went to the ACE event...

Many CWManiacs have been to the top of Wonder Mountain before as well. We were able to go up there for an event in the past (and maybe again in the future ... who knows???)
