Previous Rides and Attractions Section

Postby Johnlloyd » 20 May 2014, 23:32

I think CWmania should have a section dedicated under History to previous rides and attractions. Many other fan sites have that section. This would give people an idea what rides previously existed at Canada's Wonderland. This section could have photo galleries from members who share old ride photos. Also each ride would have certain information about the ride and where and how long it existed in the park. Just an idea I had which I thought would be interesting. 8)

A defunct rides section has been planned for years but as always, other things take priority. In terms of setting up a gallery of photos for old rides, any moderator can do that as well.

I'll get something started later this afternoon. I'm sure I have some content that I can start us off with.

I miss the water slides that were in the current psyclone/sledgehammer area. From what I remember they were fun. But I was just a kid so who knows

You mean Racing Rivers. The water sled slide was "Pharaoh's Falls" and the tube slide was "Water Snake". They existed from 1988-2001*. 8)
*Pharaoh's Falls was removed in 2000 and Water Snake the year later.

Thanks Kunpc1. Hopefully someone will upload some photos of previous rides and attractions soon. :D

Here is a list of rides and attractions that need to be included in this photo gallery:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_former_and_renamed_Canada%27s_Wonderland_attractions#Former_attractions Two rides weren't listed on that list of previous rides and attractions is The Edge, which was a climbing wall near Speed City Raceway.It came in 1998 and only lasted until the early 2000's. Also Snail Trail (Boo Boo's Buggies) wasn't listed on the list either which existed from 1981-1997. Also included on this list are various facilities that existed in the park. Maybe past shows from all the years (if possible to collect) could be included in the photo gallery. Thanks for making this section possible. 8)

It's been quite a while since this section was mentioned. If anyone has photos for the retired ride section and are willing to share these photos, that would be greatly appreciated as we should cherish the wondrful history of Canada's Wonderland. 8) http://www.cwmania.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=274
