Re: New For 2018- Lumberjack, Flying Canoes, and Splash Island Expansion

It was a Mondial Inferno... I believe it was run under the name 'Airwolf'... Yes, Soaring Timbers is a Mondial Inferno, but I have heard from a few sources that it was either the "Airwolf" or the "Nightfly". I am not too sure which is correct as I have not been able to find an exact answer over the...

Re: New For 2018- Lumberjack, Flying Canoes, and Splash Island Expansion

Does anyone know if LumberJack is an old carnival ride like Soaring Timbers. If so, does anyone know how old LumberJack is? I think Soaring Timbers is around 27 years old, correct? As Wonder Mountain mentioned, Lumberjack will be a new park model unit of the Zamerpla Hawk 48 model. As for Soaring T...

Re: Old Rides

Is there a height difference between a Hawk 24 and a Hawk 48??? There is no difference in height for the Zamperla Hawk 24 or 48 models. They both send passengers upside down at 70 feet high. The only difference is capacity. 8) In that case, I'll be quite happy with Lumberjack!!! You should be as it...

Re: Wonderland Merchandise Thread

I'm always on the lookout for more park merch... Why is our selection so poor??? Do Canadians not buy souvenirs??? Canadians seem to be a very thrifty people who would rather save money for real estate than in actually having fun. I buy souvenirs at the park, but usually nearing the end of the seas...

Re: Old Rides

Now that Soaring Timbers is being put in, a lot of CW fanboys should be happy they have a newer version of JetScream. I never rode the ride back then but from what I heard the restraints were fairly painful, so this should be considered a major upgrade in comfort and capacity. You mean Lumberjack, ...

Re: Future Enjoyment sign spotted

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 wo...

Re: A Retro Wonderland

Here is a wintry retro Canada's Wonderland photo shared by Canada's Wonderland via Facebook today. The photo shows a snow covered Mighty Canadian Minebuster! If I were to guess, this photo was probably captured in either 1981 or 1982. 8) [attachment=0]26168919_10155388373363924_7076583730274497378_n...

Below are a few videos which were uploaded recently to the Retrontario YouTube channel. They are 30 second clips which were produced before the park had ope...
