Re: Action Theatre Future???

I would love CW to recreate the theater like Carowinds's Plants vs Zombies ride.

Re: CW Mobile App

They can do what Disney does. Give an electronic card (or a card with the time on it) to the guest. Once the guest arrives at the station, they give it to the ride attendant.

Re: Project 2016!

^I guess they will use this technology if they are going through the mobile route?

I really thought CW will get the VR ride as I thought Thunder Run would make a pretty good candidate for this technology. A family ride that is smooth and doesn't have sudden drops.

Pan Am Torch takes a ride on Leviathan

A few days ago, the Pan Am flame went through CW for the Pan Am games coming up in July.

Re: Project 2016!

^ LOL. Think about the folks at KD. They haven't gotten anything new since I305. Remember, it's possible for two CF parks to receive a coaster. Carowinds and KD both did it in 2010 and both placed $20+ million coasters. For Cedar Point, everything is really just speculation at the moment too. They d...

Hi everyone! It's been a while since I last posted. Thank you everyone for taking pictures of all the "activity" at CW! I just thought I might share an article that was recently published from my Alma mater that might be (or not be) relevant to our rumored discussions. http://www.magazine.utoronto.c...

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 ...
