At least this/last year's. We don't know pricing for the CP 2020 all-season FL+ do we?

That's why I stated 2019, we don't know the prices yet but we DO know that they just raised the prices on their single-day Fastlane passes a few weeks ago so I don't expect the price to go down.

It is. The sales tax rate is extremely high which eats into the difference a little bit but it's still a huge savings.

So, do these have to activated at CW? Seems like a fine deal if you want the platinum with all parks FP. Previously it appears you don't have to activate these at the home park.

Canada's Wonderland has sent us a press release about their new additions for 2020, Mountain Bay Cliffs and Beagle Brigade Airfield in Planet Snoopy!

Canada’s Wonderland is taking guest adventures to new heights in 2020 with the addition of a multi-level cliff jumping attraction in the water park and an exciting airplane ride for children in Planet Snoopy.

Adventure awaits at Mountain Bay Cliffs, situated high above the landscape of Splash Works water park. Guests can experience the exhilaration of cliff jumping from a variety of heights into the water below, with the ultimate challenge of conquering the highest peak at seven-and-a-half metres (25 feet).

Beagle Brigade Airfield flies into Planet Snoopy next year, and will feature six suspended airplanes that zip through the air, taking its young pilots for an exciting flight. Beagle Brigade Airfield will zoom along an oval course swinging through sharp banked turns, bringing smiles to children and parents alike.

“We’re committed to finding new ways to deliver fun, immersive and memorable experiences to guests of all ages,” said Norm Pirtovshek, General Manager at Canada’s Wonderland. “The addition of Mountain Bay Cliffs in Splash Works will offer our guests a unique outdoor experience unlike any other. And Beagle Brigade Airfield promises to be a favourite for children, as we continue to expand our family attractions in KidZville and Planet Snoopy.”

When guests purchase their 2020 Season Pass* now they can enjoy the park immediately, getting unlimited visits for the rest of 2019, as well as 2020 ­– all for only $73.99 or 12 easy online payments of $6.16.

Our guests can enjoy four seasons of fun with a 2020 GOLD Pass that includes all the benefits of a Season Pass, plus free admission to WinterFest and Halloween Haunt this season as well as in 2020. All for only $99.99 or 12 easy online payments of $8.33. Both deals are available for a limited time.

*The regular Season Pass does not include Halloween Haunt or WinterFest

Hooray for keeping less people in the FL+ line! Although I'm sure this is somewhat to make more guests contemplate getting a FL+ season pass since the cost of one admission is coming (barely) closer to the price of an all season FL+.

Why do I have a feeling that the Mountain Bay Cliffs could be a lawsuit waiting to happen? A cool addition nonetheless.

Wait, so they're just going to let regular guests jump off of a 25 foot cliff into a pool?

Yeah, I would not expect this type of attraction to come to their American parks. :lol:

It's just like a high-dive.

Oh yeah, I'm not saying it's overly insane or anything but it's funny coming from a company that puts seat belts on Ferris Wheels in America :lol: .

It's a decent-sized high dive too. It's more than twice the height of the Knoebels ones. I sort of feel like I might punk out on these things. lol

Yeah... I just read an article which claims that the water impact from a 6 meter jump is strong enough to compress your spine, break bones, or give you a concussion. That seems like a stretch, but I have seen that every article I'm browsing through after searching, "Average height for a high-dive" actually has had insurance advertisements. :lmao:

I could be wrong about this whole thing...
