Before they add a fourth woodie at Canada's Wonderland how about they hire GCI to do some much-needed track work on the three they already operate?

I know everyone is shooting Cedar Point, but with this clue I might think Stratosoar could go here instead.

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

And I'd be fine with that. It would round out Wonderland's already stellar flat ride collection.

Of course, I am still hoping for a record breaking Intamin woodie. Not holding my breath on that though.

The comments under the picture on their facebook page are just...wow...

Several users claiming "I'm so high"
And one claiming it's going to be a stratacoaster but not a stratacoaster...
Yaaahhhhh!!!! Stratacoaster all the way man!! Except what's gonna make it better than TTD is the fact that it will use the momentum to have more elements like camel humps, helixes, and inversions.

Here's the thing though: it will not be a... strata (400 ft +): it will be 315 feet high and do the STORMRUNNER thing ( Hershey park ) and treat you to all sorts of great elements following the launch and top hat!!!! OMG OMG!!! I can't wait!!! Thank you Cedar Fair!

And as for lines: well, with six smaller trains running, the line WILL move steadily. But the wait will be long. You can always expect that with the opening of a world-class thrill attraction that delivers a real BANG for your buck.

Park News - (8/17/10) According to a reader those markings under Vortex have been there most of the season and may be an attempt to measure water levels in the lake throughout the year due to some flooding issues during storms. They also uncovered a fun little “easter egg” hidden on the park’s website… the old FearFest and Spooktacular website is still online and intact from 2006, the old Paramount days. I guess Cedar Fair’s web-techs never found it and removed it, so enjoy it now while it lasts and grab some logos or screen captures for yourself, because it probably wont be up too much longer.
Unfortunately, though I had just posted information about the event, the Ride Warriors day at Canada’s Wonderland was apparently just canceled due to lack of interest. How sad they would cancel it so quickly, though to be fair it doesn’t sound they did a damn thing to promote it as the only way I was even informed about it at all was through some local enthusiast sites. You’ve got to promote an event if your going to have one folks…
