Canada's Wonderland

Postby montezooma » Fri Nov 07, 2008 9:39 pm

That is such a great video clip! I really enjoyed watching that. Someone had some creative ideas, a rareity in Hollywood today.

The next two postcards are a before and after.

Wonder Mountain and International street as it was conceptualized and then, as it was realized.

trivia question: Does anyone know why they built Wonder Mountain instead of the traditional Eiffel Tower at Kings Island and Kings Dominion?

The Cyclone Racer can also be seen in that cinematic gem: The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies!!?

There is quite a bit of footage (most on ride). I highly recommend the Mystery Science Theater 3000 version!

^WOW, I really like that post card (Two-Face). I like everything about that ride, well except for maybe the colors. It especially has a cool name and logo, shame they are taking it out.

Anywho...here is another post card from me...Geronimo!

The post card is from Six Flags Great Adventure but it is obviously the ride from Six Flags over Georgia

I just looked at the Cedar Point and SFGAm postcards. Very interesting!

Wait, SFGAdv. is removing their Parachute drop? That's sad. :(

^ No not that I am aware of.

I think you might be confused over Shane's comment about Two-Face at SFA which appears to be on its way out of the park.
