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

Re: New Parking Garage for 2018?

I am still here as well.

I do *not* peruse TPR for many reasons, so I did not see this.

Anyways, as I will be at the ACE event at Wonderland Saturday, I will see if I can get any information. Hoping that a 7 AM check in time does not render my brain useless.

Re: ACE event - Rollercoasters, Eh? at Canada's Wonderland

I'm planning to come Paul, even though I find I can't ride all day and night, like I used to. :) Are we still paying the ACE fee? $60/90? Oh, I just saw your other post in the New forum.

It is always a great event!

I am surprised no one else is speaking up here. I guess this forum really has died.

Re: Muskoka Plunge and Soaring Timbers

I really doubt it. You likely won't see anything started on until perhaps March.

Re: La Ronde - Montreal, QC

This has been long rumoured to be leaving the park. La Ronde is long overdue for a new coaster - the last new one was Goliath in 2007. This space could easily fit one of those new fangled Free Spin coasters ;-)

Re: How many flips have you achieved on Skyhawk?

I managed 25 as my best - and thats enough for me.

At the ACE event in September, one member almost got 90 flips on an extended cycle during out nighttime ERT session. It was epic!

Re: Halloween Haunt 2016

I went opening night. Very quiet - did every maze twice and got some rides in on everything I wanted, except for Leviathan, as it was down all night, with one train disassembled behind the station. If the train was apart, perhaps it valleyed? No reason to take a train apart and leave it behind the ...
