Canada's Wonderland, ON
Total Timber Tour 2 Blog Day 4
We’re sure we’ve said it before but... What a difference a day (and a few hundred miles) makes!
Visiting Canada’s Wonderland in Toronto today not only confirmed how poor yesterday’s park was, but actually made it seem a whole lot worse. From a park that couldn’t run a bath, to a professional entertainment outfit who know the meaning of a good day out. Not too many people in the park but just enough to create a great atmosphere. All rides operational to capacity (these Cedar Fair parks certainly know how to move people) ensured our delayed arrival (stuck in traffic for 30 mins this morning) didn’t impact on our desire to ride Behemoth for the first time as well as re-ride a few old favourites from our last visit 9 years ago.
We can’t believe how much the park has changed in that time. It’s now a major player – highly polished, clean, well landscaped, maintained and, above all, friendly! This is the standard all parks should strive for as far as we’re concerned – why? – because everyone was having a great day out – surely the reason for a park to exist.
As for Behemoth – very re-rideable. Probably a bit better towards the front for natural “out of your seat” floats over the hills – you HAVE to put all your faith in those restraints.
So well done Canada’s Wonderland – 5 stars out 5. Make sure everyone knows how good you are and give yourselves all a pay rise!
Almost forgot – the weather was back to holiday standards today – low 70’s and not a cloud in the sky.
After such a few quality hours, we were back on the road mid-afternoon and a long drive (8 hours) back into the States. The border crossing was a much less formal affair than going into Canada with just a few questions in exchange for a look at our passports passed out the driver’s window. Once we answered why we liked Cedar Point so much (“because of Top Thrill Dragster”) we were waved through! No sooner had we re-entered the USA the heavens opened and the remainder of the journey was completed through torrential rain as though to say “not you two again”!
Au revoir. Jusqu'à demainur....
