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) 26168919_10155388373363924_7076583730274497378_n.jpg Photo cre...

Re: Future Enjoyment sign spotted

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 ...

Re: What days are the least busy during the year

I've gone during these times over the past few years and had a great time as the park wasn't busy, meaning most rides were walk-on's or had very minimal waits, even on nice sunny days. Th...

Re: New Parking Garage for 2018?

The markings do look like ones for a parking garage, but they could also be for something else, possibly a new toll booth similar to that at Kings Island given the location of the markings. But, we will just have to wait and see. 8)

While at Canada's Wonderland yesterday I had managed to flip 44 times, beating my previous personal record of 34 flips on Skyhawk. That was quite the experience doing 10 more flips than my record! 8)

Re: Halloween Haunt 2017

Correct me if I'm wrong but why haven't we got a proper graveyard for deceased rides It would be a neat and somewhat sad feature as other parks do it. Maybe you should consider suggesting it to the park! 8) How? I don't think wonderland knows me can't we get kunpc1 to do it? You just send in an ema...
