Old Rides

Postby Scott84 » 28 Aug 2017, 23:24

How accurate is Wikipedia's page on Canada's Wonderland Former Rides and Attractions?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_former_and_renamed_Canada%27s_Wonderland_attractions

Some even list some of the rides as put in storage. Says Shiva's Fury is in pieces behind Splash Works.

Anyone remember riding any of these attractions?

I miss Shiva's Fury, Zumba Flume, Sky Rider, Bayern's Curve (Miss that horn!), etc.

Yeah Scott, it is pretty accurate. I remember riding the great whale of china. What a barf ride that was! I couldn't go on that ride today. I really miss Zumba Flume. I believe there is a video of that ride somewhere. If I find it, i'll add the link for you.

I found the video! It shows Zumba Flume around the 2:00 minute mark. It also shows Bayern Curve, people walking up the mountain, Yogi's Cave, the parrot show, yes, the parrot show. Man, I miss that view from the top of the mountain. It was an amazing view of the entire park. I bet it would still be amazing today. It also shows people with their all-day-passes around their necks. they were basically, a piece of printed cardboard and I think I still have one laying around the house somewhere. If I ever come across it, I will post a pic of it.

You could have got a view from the top of the mountain yesterday if you went to the ACE event...
