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...

Well Dragon Fire was designed for three trains initially. If anything, they should make the ride longer. Not faster.

Re: Cedar Point closing Mantis

Don't forget about the test track paint section... adds more evidence that Mantis will not be removed.

Re: Post Fireworks rides

The park was packed so I'm not surprised if the lineup was that long.

The train was indeed running during the fireworks. I was watching from the entrance. Xtreme Skyflyer was also still running during the fireworks.

Re: Cedar Point closing Mantis

I don't think they will remove the ride. Such a late announcement that a ride will close?

Squash = sit down conversion makes sense to me.

Re: Season Pass Appreciation Weekend (Aug 30 to Sept 1)

I parked way up at the north end of the parking lot, beyond the bus terminal, close to where Leviathan hits its first turn. There was almost nobody parking done there. There was a lot of security directing traffic, which was good to see...finally. I always find it a plus to exit through the north s...

August 25th, 2014

So yesterday I went to the park with friends. I already knew ahead that it was bring your friend day for $20 (which is a great deal). Weather was beautiful so naturally the park was packed. Just some general thoughts. Leviathan and Behemoth were actually one of the longer waits yesterday. Fast pass ...
