Future Enjoyment sign spotted

Post by lumist » 08 Oct 2017, 16:04

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?

There better be a new roller coaster that roller coaster enthusiasts around the world would want to ride, as well as it being included in Planet Coaster as an official roller coaster like Steel Vengeance in Cedar Point, except that ours should be better and more unique.

If they were to build a coaster there for 2019 then why start so early? Landscaping and all that?

The land would need to be serviced early. And, *if* it was a wood coaster....construction would start early next year.

Even if it isn't a wood coaster, why not start as early as you can??? Give yourself a head start for the fall...

There's for sure going to be a new coaster announced for 2019. We've been teased since the day Lumberjack was announced.

If you guys remember correctly, Splash Works' Splash Island is receiving an expansion for 2018 so that could possibly be the reason as to why the path along Splash Works is closed. Also while I was at the park last Saturday, I noticed that the ice cream truck located near Mighty Canadian Minebuster all summer was gone and the fence was piled up. So, the park probably also didn't want someone climbing on the dismantled fencing so, it was best just to close the path off for the remainder of the season. 8)

While I'm hoping for something original, I'd settle for a clone of something good...

Here's some awesome news hot off the Screamscape press, and this time it is actually happening! Canada's Wonderland has submitted a permit application with the Toronto Water Conservation Authority to construct a roller coaster which features an underwater tunnel/trench nearby Vortex! This coaster could very well open between 2019 or 2020! Click here and scroll down to page 45 to read about Canada's Wonderland's future plan. This could very well support the work that has been seen during this off-season!

Well it’s about time!! What are the chances you all think it could be ready for 2019? I imagine the bulk of the subsurface work or “Phase2” would have to be completed during the warmer months.

Definitely think this new coaster will be for 2019! Work has already started on SkyRider's land and in Lake LeBarge (under Vortex). Also heard that they are putting in the stormwater diversion pipes, as mentioned in the permits, required to build the coaster tunnel. Those pipes will be along the path by WindSeeker, by the sounds of things.

Also, here's a quick prediction of the layout of the new coaster (probably a little too compact, but I left room for it to expand beyond this) based on the details in the permit of a ride tunnel and only nine support piers within Lake LeBarge, the available land on SkyRider's land, the assumption that they won't want to take over much of the fireworks/Vortex hill (for fear of guest backlash/riots caused by such a decision), and the thought that this will be a multi-looping coaster. I tried to measure against the area taken up by some other B&M compact coasters and elements, including Raptor's cobra roll, Leviathan's transfer track/train storage, Mantis/Rougarou, Dominator, and Hydra: The Revenge. Personally, I think this is going to be a flyer, invert, or maybe floorless (in that order) for various reasons including that none of those options rely too heavily on airtime (which would require a lot of land). Flying coaster has the added benefit of near-guaranteed tallest, fastest, longest coaster of its kind in Canada and possibly in the world, as well as most inversions on a flying coaster, only flying coaster with an underwater tunnel, and so on. Originally I thought our next coaster would be a wing, but I think they need a larger plot of land and would require a much larger tunnel. Only time will tell. Thoughts?

Yay B&M! :excited:

Certainly exciting that they already have track on site, but it's possible they only have enough for the tunnel since they would need to install those track sections before enclosing the tunnel and refilling Lake LeBarge (i.e., before the park opens this season). Then they can worry about assembling the rest of the layout later. Also, if this track is only used for the tunnel, it may not accurately reflect the colour of the rest of the coaster (a stretch, I know, but I'm really hoping that's not the final colour) since you probably won't be able to see it while you're down there anyway. Alternatively, maybe the station could be themed to the nest of the Ziz creature people think this coaster will be themed/named after and this colour is just for the station track to blend in with that theme?

I find it hilarious that this somehow confirms it's a dive coaster. Wing coasters also have quite large track gauge, as do the modern invert designs (due to the wider restraints/seats). This may also be the rumoured 4-D wing coaster design people thought B&M might have been working on developing, or some other new coaster model altogether. The track spine width on any coaster also varies according to where on the layout it is, with the lift and drop of Leviathan having a much larger spine than the rest of the layout, and the station/brake run on many coasters having larger spines than the rest of the coaster. If this track is for the station, lift, tunnel, or brake run (all of which are likely to be constructed first), I don't see this proving anything at all.

Let the speculation continue to run wild! :dance:
