Man that's a bummer about the coaster. I saw on your Twitter that it was closed and I was bummed for you then and now I'm bummed once again. Sounds like you guys had a great day though and I'm guessing if it's that important to you, you'll be back!

My goodness I didn't realize how mus have missed the Oddventures, great report. Of all the fast food chains in the world to be popular in Western Canada I did not see A&W coming, but I do now want a root beer float.

Did the donkey fairy give me this title?

FlyOver Canada was okay. I wasn't a fan of the preshow and being misted 4 times during the ride wasn't ideal for my glasses. I prefer Wings Over Washington. Playland's Haunted House was great, I found it funny they told me not to touch anything but yet everything kind of came out and touched me.

I'm looking forward to Erik posting Day 3. :b

Cool little report. Bummer that Coaster was down. Looks like Playland was still fun but not the same without it. Rest of the city looked really cool though.

A&W Canada was bought out by local management at least 20 years ago - basically it kept being popular, when the US business went down the tubes. No idea why, exactly.

I will say that the Canadian version is still popular - if you are only counting burger chains (and not Tim Hortons) it's safe to bet it's #2 behind McDonald's.

And the Burger Family lives on!

Nice to see you back in business, again.

As for the orange ice cream with the licorice swirl, I'm intrigued. My Dad definitely would've tried it. And I agree with you about up-charge atractions--always make an exception for haunts.

No, he was just pregnant before.

(Seriously, it's sort of not cool to ask about someone's weight...)
