    New rides at Wonderland

    Well their main focus for the park would be June July and August, the same months when businesses are slower. I could see how it would be suited for both. Unfortunately I can't see anything mentioned of direct travel to and from but it would be weird for a Cedar Fair based entity to not have...

    New rides at Wonderland

    The mountain would look great, it hides more of the highway which is a plus and could be a good backdrop for pictures. I'm curious how large this will be, can you stay swimming for a while or be forced out shortly after? It also sets up more of a "Canadiana" theme while not being in your face...

    Yukon Striker at Canada's Wonderland | 68m | ?s | Cedar Fair COMPLETE

    I couldn't fathom Six Flags managing the park from What it was and turning it into what it is now. We are one great coaster and a hotel away from hitting way above our belt versus Cedar Point, Busch Gardens Williamsburg & Magic Mountain.

    Yukon Striker at Canada's Wonderland | 68m | ?s | Cedar Fair COMPLETE

    Paramount really messed up what TAFT created. They just wanted to plug in any movie they could without contemplating where they were relative to the park. Also giving us only cloned coasters didn't help either. Before Backlot Cafe was here, it was a beautiful ancient Chinese building which they...

    Yukon Striker at Canada's Wonderland | 68m | ?s | Cedar Fair COMPLETE

    This year on topof Frontier Canada they replaced the original Medieval Faire section back to their original names as well as cut Action Zone in half to slowly become Exposition 1896 again. I'm going to assume that over the next couple of years you will see a new theme/replacement of Drop Tower...

    Toronto | Lower Don Lands Redevelopment | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto

    I know what's going on.... The average person walking passed a massive construction site has no clue other than "probably more condos". We take this site for granted when the vast amount of people in this city either don't know or don't want to know. I would love to see the details on an...

    I doubt the average person in the city knows what's going on at 1 Yonge Street let alone in the fringe of downtown.

    Yukon Striker at Canada's Wonderland | 68m | ?s | Cedar Fair COMPLETE

    It's probably one of those later in the season additions. I would imagine getting the station as well as florals, trees and all the new shops up and running for opening day. At least I hope...

    Yukon Striker at Canada's Wonderland | 68m | ?s | Cedar Fair COMPLETE

    It does look a little slow but keep in mind coasters slow down a lot in colder weather.... plus there is no one riding it making it a few thousand pounds lighter. Overall it looks quite intense and I'm excited to ride it sometime this year! The theming looks great on it as well.

    What about a platinum black crystal? that would be much more of a welcomed shock and awe. Maybe with a silver finish around the windows and entryways.

    Not a new ride per se, but Vortex got a new sign/"theme"

    Toronto | 160 Front West | 239.87m | 46s | Cadillac Fairview | AS + GG

    It would be a great connection from Union, MTCC, CBC and hopefully the main Financial District PATH considering you have to go through a parking lot currently to connect with the often dead Roy Thompson connection.

    Toronto | Maple Leaf Square | 186m | 54s | Lanterra | KPMB

    It's been a long time since I was in school for journalism, but I do remember (somewhat) that it is against Canadian law for a journalist to directly connect a law broken with the name of the person. Next time you read about a murder look at how they phrase everything. They will say the...

    Toronto | Commerce Court 3 | 302m | 64s | QuadReal | Hariri Pontarini

    As long as this is the place card and they're still tinkering with the design, I'm quite happy with the height reduction. I agree with Cd Concept, plus we have a plethora of soon to be facad-ed 8-15 storie building on and around Bay Street to fill up the density downtown.

    Yukon Striker at Canada's Wonderland | 68m | ?s | Cedar Fair COMPLETE

    I'm hoping it will be an active water tower with some water features like they did with a few of their more recent flats. Looking at what Carrowinds is doing with a fairly large barn and a massive stone fireplace, I can't wait to see the other additions here.

    New rides at Wonderland

    The land Orbiter was on is apparently being turned into a pathway that connects Behemoth/Backlot up to Yukon Stryker/Minebuster, officially making no dead end pathways in the park officially. This might further provide some extra space if they were to RMC Minebuster down the road to redo their...

    I think it would be a cooler affect if on the East Side you had a sign built into the curve, so if you looked down from a plane you could see it all lit up, maybe that would be the lighting feature as well.

    New rides at Wonderland

    The Director of Social Media, Grace Peacock, confirmed that Orbiter, a 37 year old HUSS Skylab (Enterprise), is not coming back for the 2019 season. It was the only permanent version left in North America. No replacement has been mentioned, though if I were to RMC Minebuster in the next few...

    Tableau Condominiums | 124m | 36s | Urban Capital | Wallman Architects COMPLETE

    If the pub had a sign right by the sidewalk it would make a huge difference. Same with if they had a patio extending that far across as well. I have walked down that street plenty of times after work for 2 years and if I didn't know because of this forum that there was a pub there, I wouldn't...
