I live in Canada.
Since the WTC terrorist attack, the chance of going to any US amusement parks are silm. And I'm stuck with a Vekoma SLC in PCW.
Will Canada ever get a B&M in the near future?

I lived in Canada, and our rides are WAY better, than yours. Wy catyou come out here, the parks are all safe

My question is: Why ride an SLC when PCW has a few other coasters? Why not make a trip down into USA, too? What's so bad? Are you afraid that as soon as you enter the country, a 757 is gonna land on your head? Nothing bad is going on! Come, visit! We need it! Make a trip to SFDL, CP, SFWoA, SFGAdv, Dorney, Hershey, SFNE, etc!

Be paitent, Le Ronde is going to get a B&M sometimes since it has come under some new management. Six flags! I believe there is an rumor going around that Le Ronde will get an B&M invert next year but I doubt that since Six Flags just spent a lot on buying the property alone. I bet that the B&M will come in 2003. Anyways, Coaster131 is correct in saying that many american parks are only a few hours away by car,so Dark Luke visit them !!!

Hey, what part of Canada do you live in? Maybe you can take a train to a nearby US Park...

Just want to point out the park is not "Le" Ronde, but La Ronde. Le is masculine in french, la is feminine, and the park is feminine for some reason. Those silly french, giving inanimate objects and places genders!
Also, like Coaster131 said, don't be afraid of the US. I personally promise no Boeing (or Airbus) jet will hit you, or anything near you.
Hey, SFGAm management, can I buy a couple cages of Sky Whirl?

I love the mighty canadian minebuster, as well as the Wild Beast, which, by the way, is a lot better than their little bros. both of the Grizzly coasters at PKD and PGA.

Mr. Luke: What is preventing you from visiting the U.S.? I hear the border crossings are indeed longer, but other than that ... I live in T.O. and am looking forward to my next trip across (to CP next week for Halloweekends - ain't nobody gonna keep us away from that). If you mean you're antsy about flying, I do sympathize - but remember, you have, in Ohio, NY, Pennsylvania and Virginia, perhaps the greatest collection of roller coasters in the world a day's drive away from you ...
