It is similar to markings found out int he parking lot during Leviathan construction

My guess could be Main Column 2

That's great news! I'm almost sold on a rollercoaster now :)

You know, this could all just be jibberish, like how CP likes to tease enthusiasts. LOL

Are there any others yet? I'd assume we would see a "secondary" if ^ is correct. Isn't each marker color suppose to mean something? For example: water, electrical, gas, survey, etc?

This sounds cool
In the future, we’re going to see more hybrid-type rides such as “watercoasters,” a mix of waterslide and roller coaster. We’ll also see roller coasters using magnets instead of chains, so you won’t hear that creaking sound as you go up.

Leviathan's markings were like "C8" (Column 8). These were the stakes were found near the end of last season but have since been removed.

I got a reply on the facebook page from Norm the Vice President of operations at Canada's Wonderland he said they are elevation markings or bench marks.

^Interesting. Not sure what elevation markings would be for (Possibly an elevated section of track over the pathway?). Benchmarks, however sounds like a spot for a major element of a coaster/ride.

^Makes sense. Wonder if the landscaping is simply to fill in skyrider's old spot, or if it'll be the beginning of a plazza/entrance for the new attraction (Similar to that of behemoth and leviathan).

Do you actually think he would tell you what they are for (if they were for a coaster or some other attraction)?

No I don't thus why if you saw how I asked him it was in sarcastic humor... However I do believe these markings not to be for a coaster as they are in green. Green is for landscaping thus like his response.

look they updated the reason to why Skyrider was removed on their actual website.. hmmmm
