Has anyone been on this ride or planning to go on it?  I envy you for sure!  Here is the link with a virtual ride to experience it.  Now that is one heck of a roller coaster!

If anyone tries this, would love to know if you can see Manhatten from the Summit   (if your eyes were even open?) LOL

Kit, push the CLICK HERE it works!  Since posting this Kit informed me of a thrill-seekers paradise close to her home.  So...she and I will go there and let you know how we rate the place, and ask me if I am excited.  Here is where we are going to leave our mark!

Aw pff... it looks fun but where's the rest of it? Is it just that one hill? thats a jip! :P I LOVEEEE coasters.. the faster, the scarier, the longer, the more twists and hills and loops, the better! My goal is to throw up/piss myself from fear. Never done it yet! I've ridden every coaster at Kings Island and Cedar point, including the millinum force, which was the highest coaster in the world at the time. Fun stuff!!!

Love's a lovely lad
His bringing up is beauty
Who loves him not is mad
For I must pay him duty

canada's wonderland doesn't have a monster coaster like that, however it does have a collection of great coasters. you must try top gun(unless you can tie them insanely tight, leave your shoes with someone), the bat(backwards coaster..strange fun), the minebuster is an old wooden coaster but still fun(look for the tunnel where you swear, you're going to hit your head) and the skyrider(i think thats it, its a standing coaster, males..beware the bike seat). go early in the day and try them all, that's what i used to do.

I LOVE Canada's Wonderland too, I am an amusement park freak and have a mission to make it to all of the U.S ones eventually, have been to a lot of them so far . . . you have to go to Six Flags Sharon, there is one here in Darien Center - not far at all . . .  yes, the Bat was the strangest ride I have ever been on, left that one feeling weird. Defies gravity or something, you just have to go on it to know.

Raph - I shall remember that about my shoes!  I am a collector of shoes trust me (over 200 pair easy) and I would cry loosing even one!

Whooo Hoooo!  I can NOT wait!

I think my son has been to every major park there is, and I am catching up to him.  My son and I did all the rides in California a couple of years ago, and the new rollercoaster at Disneyland turned two adults into animals!  Todd and I were sneaking back in the line like kids, and we didn't care either!  Loved this ride at Knotts Berry Farm!

you'll have alot of fun especially if you hit the park early, otherwise the lines are killer. i forget just which coaster it is, but it captures your pic on the way down. the expressions are priceless and if ye an kit are brave enough, i'd l#ve to see that posted here lol

I usually take my own pics on the rollercoaster but for you ~ your wish is our command.  I think the plan is to spend a good full day, and a partial day there, and stay in a hotel nearby so we have time to wait in lines.  Heck she can teach me how to write poetry while we wait, (sure like that could happen)   The master planner, (Kit) is working on the mechanics of this adventure and I can't wait! Whooo Hooo!
