I would like to hit most of the coasters and the unique flats. However, I'm not going wait forever for a garbage ride if that's what it comes down to.


Get on Yukon Striker first. Stand in the single rider line and you might even be able to get on 2 or 3 times while other people are still lined up for Thunder Run and Guardian. :mickey:

Like a guillotine?


It would be nice to have Drop Tower fit in with the Medieval Faire section. Even if the name were not to change, it would fit in better with a new colour scheme, similar to what they did with the Drop Tower at California's Great America this past off-season. Although maybe having it painted with different accents of browns and yellows would be more suitable for a Medieval theme. :)

I think having it themed to four giant guillotines would be the single greatest theming move ever. They could still call it drop zone. Or maybe just for haunt at the very least since I'm sure it would stir up some controversy for the regular season... put in some screaming sound effects, a falling head into a basket...

Until they start using the single-rider line properly, I'd suggest using it instead of the regular line...

Don't let this donkey melt you with its laser eyes!

Guardian is one that we are interested in doing. I was assuming that rope-dropping it would be a priority?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I've only ridden Guardian once and I really liked it. Assuming they've maintained it, I'm looking forward to getting back on it.

Subjective opinions I suppose. Personally I like it, and it is different from your normal coaster...different theme, game element attached to it and a nice ending.
No fastlane...line gets long...so yes...rope drop would be a good idea...and then same for Thunder run.

We all had this discussion when they first put this ride in the mountain and I am not starting again with you, Bill. If you have ever been on Spider-man or Harry Potter at Universal Orlando, then you will be disappointed in waiting in line for Guardian. For me, I do go on it a couple of times a year now but I will wait a maximum of 15 minutes only because I don't live near Universal. If I didn't have a season pass, then I would not want to waste my time with this ride. I will leave this choice up to you, defrocker. Please let us all know what you think of Wonder Mountain's Guardian. :mickey:
