Vortex is indeed open for the remainder of the season. But the water below is drained. :)

Went to the park Sunday. Cold weather kept crowds down, but with jacket and gloves it was a nice day to ride. Biggest lineup was at the Tim Hortons.

Leviathan was lined up to the bottom of the stairs. They had these fancy red lights shining on the wheels in the station. Once on the track, the coaster hauled arse, ignoring the cold weather. Must have the snow tires on?

The new coaster's lift hill and first drop is up, just waiting on some of the railings. It can be seen from all over the park, and will be awesome. You can see it from the highway as you arrive.

Also had a nice ride on Vortex with a full lake below. Lake Behemoth had been drained though. Did not see my old car keys.

I'd expect nothing less from a Canadian theme park. :lol:

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

Nice photo. From windseeker?

This sounds funny but the thing I dont like about drop coasters is the first drop where they put the brakes on and hang you by the ankles before letting you go. After that is an amazing immelmann and a nice clothoid loop that are like a prize for putting up with the drop.

People tell me it is odd to be a coaster enthusiast who does not like heights but there you go.

I'm a know-it-all about donkeys!
