^^^ Is that duct tape I see in the 3rd picture? :lmao: Beemer probably should've upgraded their coasters to glue by now. Trololol

I don't always seduce Donkeys, but when I do I use classy Champagne!

I don't think it will be possible not to be impressed when the lift and first drop is finnished ;)
Nr 1 Liseberg and Gröna Lund fanboy!
Piraten is *the* roller coaster (after finally riding Expedition Geforce, I'll admit, it was pretty freaking awesome to!) .

Went to CW for the first time this past weekend. One note, it is a shame that CF has not yet fixed the season pass issues from other parks. Last weekend at Kings Island our passes did not scan from GL/WWK and the same at CW… We were held up at the parking booth for a few minutes while they called a supervisor and found out why our passes would not scan. I think I will write an email to Cedar Fair about it. Quite a pain to be honest.

Anyway, I was very impressed with CW. The ride collection is so-so at best, besides Behemoth. But the park is beautiful. Clean as can be, great landscaping, friendly staff. We got to ride everything with little to no wait at all Saturday morning. I must say, I did not expect it but I prefer Behemoth over Diamondback by quite a bit. It was just way more fun than I thought and the airtime was amazing. It was a blast!

Rode that awkward flying coaster, Time Warp or whatever the name was. Talk about a torture device! We still made fun of it and it was fun to finally ride one of these. Did not ride Italian Job, SLC or the boomerang. Wooden coasters were “meh”.

Halloween was a blast though at night. We planned to buy the express passes but managed to hit all 10 houses in just over an hour by getting there at 7pm. It was interesting to see how excited everyone was for Windseeker here. It had a huge line with people running right to it when the park opened.

For the Haunt, Terror London was amazing. We did not expect it to be so well done. Cornstalkers was MILES better then CP’s version, as well as Club Blood which surprised us. The Miners one was great fun and reminded us of Terror Mines from HHN a few years back. We enjoyed all the houses, but found the ones by the front gate the worst of the night. The clown house was alright, but the Asylum and the trio back by the Arrow corkscrew were the worst of the night. Still not bad by any means, but not to the level of first half. These houses were by far the best houses out of HHN we have seen, very impressed. We plan to make it back next year to go again. The only thing they lack is better scare-zones. If they could combine Kings Islands midways with CW’s houses, it would be one amazing event.

One note, there is this screamster that roams around in the Carnival scare-zone who is double-jointed and runs around like a spider backwards… It was by far the BEST actor we had ever seen at any event. I had never laughed so much watching a scareactor work. It was incredible! He really was into his role and freaked the hell out of everybody. Bravo to him for making this event so much better!

I have to admit that I like the colors a lot more now that some of the supports and track are up. When it was first announced the colors seemed to be almost alike, but now seeing some the coaster erected, it looks much better.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

According to CW Mania, the WindSeeker at CW has replaced the original dampers with the dampers that are used on the Knott's version. Can anyone confirm this? Thanks!!!

^They did that on October 1st and the difference is quite noticeable. Before the seats used to swing forward and back much more freely as compared to now.

I was doing a random Google search for Dino Alive for CW and found something interesting that was on this site: http://www.net-electric.com/current-estimates.php

In the Google search snippets from the page, this is what it said:
E11-174, DINOSAURS ALIVE @ Canada's Wonderland, 2011-10-12 10:00:00


Judging by what they do, I'm going to guess that they've been contracted to do an electrical room or something for the attraction.

She turned me into a donkey! I got better...

Dinosaurs Alive is most likely coming to Canada's Wonderland in 2012 just judging by the mass construction going on over in the kids area. The old Dolphin Theater was torn down followed by lots of land clearing surrounding that area, and what looks like a path near the snoopy area. I am going to go and take pictures on Saturday and hope I don't get beat up by kids' parents for taking pictures and videos in the snoopy area for construction lol :p

Youtube Channel is here, actual video of Leviathan construction coming soon & Dinosaurs Alive pictures on Sunday.
