Re: Wonder Mountain's Guardian - New for 2014!

The loss of audio is just one of many "effects" that have disappeared since the ride first opened. It's a real disappointment. One of my biggest concerns with this ride is that every time a new "story" is put in, it will draw large crowds again. Most rides die down in popularity ...

Re: Extras Needed

Yes, you will get free admission to the park plus the park will feed you for coming out.

New Forum Format

Hey all, To streamline discussion of other parks, I'm creating a single thread for each park. Please add updates and posts to each thread so people can easily follow any other park in a single thread. It will take a bit of time to get through all the threads on this forum but over time I hope it wil...

Re: Cedar Fair Second Quarter Results Conference Call

Whoops, typo. Fixed. And looking up the dollar's value in mid 2007 shows high 80's - low 90's. So about 15 cents stronger than we are today.

Re: Project 2016!

Just thought I would share these pics from last fall. There were numerous red stakes along the hill and lake near WindSeeker. image.jpg Interesting how we went from having them placed in an area so close to Sky Riders plot in 2015 to nothing at the start of this season. image.jpg Notice how they hav...

I don't want more technology that can fail (especially with Cedar Fair/Six Flags, as that technology starts to fail they tend not to fix/improve it). I also don't want to wear VR headsets that thousa...

Re: Cedar Fair Second Quarter Results Conference Call

I really hope we don't see any "virtual reality" added to any of our coasters. I visit amusement parks to ride coasters & thrill rides to get away from that type of thing! I want to just enjoy the coaster for what it is. I also don't want to have to wear any head-gear that thousands of...

Re: Project 2016!

That's the old Kinzel era. Capital expenditure trends have changed since Matt Ouimett has taken over. Unfortunately Wonderland will just have to wait an extra season for our next big coaster addition. I'm really interested in seeing what we will end up with as a new "alternate" attraction ...

Re: Project 2016!

The flatbed is most likely the bases for the fireworks. It's normally parked in the boneyard bear Minebuster's turnaround.
