Wouldn't Chickies @ CP (and Dorney) count as a sit down full service restaurant? They both have wait staff.

I find that the food tends to be better at sitdown restaurants over the quick service ones. The service atleast at CP is usually better too.

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.

Looking at the recently updated Google Maps for Wonderland, they do have enough room just east of Action Theatre in the old que to put in a 1-2 storie Restaraunt there. Maybe add some theming to Canadiana and reopen Action Theatre in the next couple of years. There is definitely enough space for a sit down, and I would love to see one in the park and that seems to be a great space for it.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

I waited until November 7th to write this. Not one comment about Halloween Haunt this year on TPR. My advice for anyone living in the Wonderland area. Forget about the, very stale, very copy-cat-ish Halloween Haunt and go to the Casa Loma event. Very theatrical, elaborate sets, costumes and scareactors. Just like Halloween Haunt used to be. I actually went to both events this year and will post my trip reports soon. Very quickly, Halloween Haunt was same-old, same-old and Casa Loma was amazing! :mickey:

I'm just not a fan of Halloween Haunt stuff in the first place. I'm sure a Casa-Loma event would be much more interesting.
1 - Banshee 2 - Behemoth 3 - Mystic Timbers
4 - Vampire 5 - Leviathan 6 - Goliath (La Ronde)
7 - Diamondback 8 - Vortex (CW)
9 - The Beast 10 - Flight of Fear

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

To be fair the casa loma event is also pretty copy-cat-ish being that they only do slight changes each year. It is very very well done. But so is Wonderland. I took my kid to Casa Loma again but also Wonderland for the first time for Haunt and he was blown away. So many mazes, so much to do. Casa Loma you are in and out in less than an hour. The Ruins with the flashlights is such a great experience.

I am just happy we are in a city that has both.

Well, this was my first time to the Casa Loma event this year. I would imagine that not too much would change from year to year. I guess you could just walk quickly through, but I spent an hour and a half there, and if I had stopped at the half-way restaurant/shooter bar, It would be over 2 hours. I guess you can be "blown-away" by seeing things for the first time. I want to talk about my Haunt trip this year in a bit more detail. Keep watching here. I will try to post my tr sometime next week. :mickey:

Here is a piece of Canada's Wonderland history that Grace Peacock, Director of Communications shared on Twitter today. It is quite neat to see photos like this! :)
Canada's Wonderland is my home park!

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

Did any of you take advantage of that special flash offer the park offered around Nov 13? You can buy up to two $50 fast lane plus passes per seasons ticket holder to be used anytime next season up until Labour Day. Only lasted a day or two so if you blinked you missed it.

If you have a season pass, then why on earth would you buy a fast lane pass? I don't get it. Just come back the next day, duh. :mickey:
