Canada’s Wonderland
Ontario, Canada
Cedar Fair Entertainment

 

 

icon_STOPPark News - (9/23/16) This is why we can't have anything nice anymore America. Besides all the garbage piling upon more human garbage, coddling people with safe spaces, race riots and political armageddon, now it seems some people have decided now was the time to take offense to the use of the term "5150" in the name of Cedar Fair's new VR haunt experience being tested as three Cedar Fair parks this season.
    As a result it looks like the experience has changed the name from FearVR 5150 to simply calling it "FearVR", because somehow using the term 5150 was offensive to some people in California. Never mind that the test wasn't just being done in California, or that no one protested Van Halen's use of the name 5150 for an album years ago.
    Whatever... the name has been changed, but the experience will remain the same apparently. Should be blame Cedar Fair for caving in? Maybe not... because changes are the name was really chanced at the behest of Samsung, as the attraction is part of a major sponsorship deal with Samsung for their VR headgear.
    (9/8/16) Screamscape has been told that the FEAR VR: 5150 experience that was announced as coming to California's Great America for Halloween Haunt will also be coming to the haunt's at Canada's Wonderland and to Knott's Berry Farm. FEAR VR: 5150 is described as a "groundbreaking and horrifying virtual reality experience. Strapped into a wheelchair and wearing Samsung Gear VR headgear, guests are at the mercy of the "maniacal hospital staff". FEAR VR: 5150 will require an extra fee to experience, and it not available as part of the Fright Lane or Fright Lane Plus programs.
    (7/20/16) According to this article the unofficial "Gay Day" at Canada's Wonderland has been canceled going forward as part of the fallout that started inside the park this year when a couple were asked to "stop hugging" in the park by a staff member after another guest complained to them. Follow the link to read all the official details.
    (5/23/16) A reader shared a crazy new theory about a possible name for the park’s next coaster and why... but the source may shock you. (Click here)
    (4/21/16) I'm told that Canada's Wonderland will rename a couple of their kiddie rides near the new Flying Eagles. Flavorator (mini tea cups) will become Sugar Shack and Chopper Chase has become Treetop Adventures.

 

icon_STOP2017 - Soaring Timbers and Muskoka Plunge - (8/29/16) According to a source the new Soaring Timbers ride coming to Canada's Wonderland next season will replace the park's mini-golf area near Vortex and The Fly.
    (8/26/16) Canada's Wonderland will add new wet and dry thrills to the park in 2017. The waterpark will add Muskoka Plunge, a 60-foot tall waterslide tower featuring four-speed slides that will start with a near vertical plunge when they drop from inside an AquaPod. This sounds very familiar to what Cedar Point and Knott's Soak City will be adding in 2017, minus the extra pair of tube slides attached.
    Meanwhile the main theme park will add Soaring Timbers, a new unique flat ride that will sent guests soaring and tumbling through the sky. Based on the photo this will be a Mondial Inferno with a custom wood theme.

 

icon_STOP2018?? - B&M Inverted Coaster - Rumor - (8/30/16) The early word is that the next coaster planned for Canada’s Wonderland may be another B&M, likely to happen in 2018 or 2019. Not much talk on what it will be right now, though all the early rumors were pointing to a large scale B&M Inverted coaster along the lines of Banshee at Kings Island. For now we'll have to wait and see, though I've got a hunch another Cedar Fair park may get a B&M in 2018 before CW gets another one.
    (5/23/16) This is all just speculation, but I found the information compelling enough to share after a reader shared this with me. The overall thought is that the theme of each of the latest coasters added to the lineup of Canada's Wonderland have been single pieces of a larger themed set of themed apocalypse monsters with biblical origins.
    The bible itself (in Job) mentions Behemoth first (Job 40) and then Leviathan (Job 41). Other Jewish based writings about the creatures label Behemoth as a primal monster of the earth and label Leviathan as the primal force of the seas. There is a third creature said to be the primal force of the air and sky named "Ziz". I find it interesting that the rumors surrounding the next big coaster for Canada's Wonderland are focused on either a large scale Inverted coaster design... (or possibly a Flyer) which would fit in perfectly if they were to name it Ziz. Or at least that is a theory that is starting to go around... so stay tuned!
    (3/30/16) According to some early rumors going around for Canada's Wonderland and Kings Island, I'm hearing that Canada's Wonderland may have started pre-planning their next big coaster to be a very large B&M Inverted coaster, possibly similar to Banshee at Kings Island. If true, there is always a possibility that the existing Flight Deck inverted coaster (Vekoma SLC) may be removed. While I'm not sure what year this may happen, I'm leaning towards it being a 2018 project for now.
