I'm up. More like I was working overnight, but hey, I'll stay up the extra time to get the announcement.

PS: Maybe the chat function could actual have a use today. I'll be on the chat.

So when they talk about a coaster track.. Do they mean this is a roller coaster?

The name is kind of clunky. Why not just The Guardian? Even The Guardian of Wonder Mountain sounds better.

Kudos to xlcanada for nailing the manufacturer of the ride :yes:

As for the ride itself...while I am not a big fan of the interactive dark rides where you have to shoot at stuff I believe this will be a fantastic addition to the park and the General Public will flock to it in droves which leads me to my biggest concern..............capacity. If Guardian does'nt have a great capacity then we are going to be looking at some very long lines.
Leviathan Ride Count...244
Coaster Count.........187

If each "car" will hold 6 people (assuming by Trio's website) and it takes 30 seconds to load one car, we are looking at 720pph......very concerning. However, because its only 6 people, if they can load in 15-20 seconds, we are looking at a much better capacity figure.

Climb up the side of the mountain? 1000 feet of track? 5 different layers?

Yeah, alright this does sound pretty awesome!

On a side note, not quite sure how comfortable I am with Wonderland being the testing ground for Cedar Fair, but... I suppose it does mean we get some firsts!

EDIT: btw, 720pph is not that bad... that's exactly what white water canyon has, and the line moves pretty quickly for that! Though I guess the line for the new ride will be quite a bit longer than WWC.

Yes, the capacity will be significantly lower than other rides but the ride sounds fantastic. It's part dark ride, part coaster and part special effects! It'll be sure to thrill!

I was hoping for some concept art or something. It sounds cool, but I'm wondering if this is like a slow roller coaster that has a drop to each floor. Some more details would be nice.

Sounds very interesting I can't wait to try it, like others my only concern is capacity!
Niagara Falls deserves a world class amusement/theme park and Marineland is not it!
