Re: Skyscraper at SkyPlex

I hate being harsh but good grief people. Are we seriously talking about this being built at CW? Can we be a little bit sensible? :doh:

I cannot see this ride ever being built in Canada.

Re: Halloween Haunt 2014

Well Halloween Haunt is once again over for another year. This one was indeed a great event including Zombies 4D. Although I agree there needs to be more improvements. One improvement they could have is to offer a shuttle bus to and from the GO Train stations in Vaughan to encourage people to take ...

Re: SkyRider Closing On September 1

Thanks for the pictures lumist. The area does look rather empty. Didn't realize how much space the helix took up. The pictures break my heart a little but knowing that something awesome (hopefully) will take Skyrider's place in the future helps with the sadness. :( I was planning on going today but ...

Re: SkyRider Closing On September 1

^ Maybe that access path will remain closed? What if Splashworks gets a new entrance next year (closer to Minebuster)?

Re: The Next Coaster...

I would perfectly be happy with a Maverick type of ride running through the woods in the back of our park. And a re theme in the back part of the park would be nice too.

Re: Typhoon & Splash Station New in 2015!

We already knew ahead of time that CW will capitalize on Ontario Place's closure. Pretty sure the parts are "gently" used and just need a repaint or so... no need to panic!

That's the case for anything purchased online from CW. It should really be called a "convenience" fee to avoid ticket lines at the park.

I dunno. Riddler's Revenge has a couple of decent airtime moments. But, it's not like a Maverick or Helix style mix.


Riddler's Revenge gives me a headache. I prefer the coasters at Carowinds... Top Gun and Vortex are my ideal B&M inversion coasters. Still haven't ridden Banshee yet...

Re: The Next Coaster...

I don't think I've ever seen vortex shut down for maintenence or anything. And the line is always packed. I think it's here to stay for a while It was closed for a few days in early August. My friends from France were disappointed that the ride was close when we visited. Vortex is here to stay. Kin...

Re: SkyRider Closing On September 1

Do people know if Sky Rider is still scheduled to be in the Roller Coaster Museum? I think that could indicate its future pretty clearly. BTW, pcwnut look at Halloween Haunt thread, I have a question for you. +1. I would like to know too. I also want to know what souvenir the last riders got for Sk...

Re: New Skin

The only complaint I have is that the red font is a little hard to read. Maybe make it brighter or make it a white font as well?

I love the banner on top though!

Re: 2014 Golden Ticket Awards

As always, I take these with ton of salt... But it's nice to see a different winner for Best Park for a change... As more enthusiasts travel the world, places like Europa Park will show up more often. +1. I just had friends visited me from France and they said Europa Park is amazing. Themed beautif...
