Forget about a hyper, I want to see park chains start rolling out the 300-footers. I know it's wishful thinking (even though I probably won't be attending CW anytime in the recent future).. I just think it might be about time the prices have dropped a little. I'm sure they wouldn't be as expensive to build as Millenium Force was 8 years ago (this certainly does not include SD 2000). Obviously this is going to be a pricey ride seeing how it's a custom layout AND some parts are over water... Hypers are still awesome and I live near SFNE, so obviously I'm spoiled.

Just a thought (not made to initiate any ridiculous nooby discussion)....

The public has no idea what a B&M hyper is. I don't know what the park is building but it could be an exact Goliath clone with a different color scheme and still be something Canada has never seen before.

Saying "Canada has never seen anything like it" could still mean a hyper; it all depends on how it is interpreted. The Park could mean "Canada has never seen a hyper over 200 ft", which is true.

If anything, it would be MORE expensive today -- the price of steel certainly hasn't gone down, nor has the price of transportation or construction.

We're not talking consumer electronics -- Moore's Law doesn't apply here, folks.

Jason Hammond's avatar In fact at the Coaster Mania Q&A it was said that if Millennium Force were built today it would cost closer to $35 Million.

Finally, a reason to go back to the Toronto area!

You won't see me coming...

see if the original poster's grammar is perfect then we won't see 'a out and back' coaster. maybe 'an out and back' which looks like it from the footers. i think it's important that when you give hints that you are grammatically correct. this is why i shrugged to myself and chose 'a hyper-twister' as my response. i doubt this will be anything higher than 220 feet or longer than a mile; there doesn't look to be enough room for something '6327 feet long!'...
another thing: if the person dropping hints does in fact know something, then this is a B&M, not an Intamin.

Another teaser update on Wonderland's Website:

http://www2.cedarfair.com/canadaswonderland/#actions

Along with the countdown, and the headlines, the website now features a "height-meter" along the right hand side of the splash page. It's increasing daily to show how tall the ride will be. After one day, it's up to 29 feet. They really are trying to tease us on this one.

rollergator's avatar I know the scaling of the "height-meter" thing may not be accurate, but my finger-width gauge says the ride will be about 180' tall....junior hyper?

Ask not what you can do for a coaster, but what a coaster can do for you.

Maybe it'll be a dark ride, like Blazing Fury or something, only themed to Phantom of the Opera. (stupid, sure, but no dumber than an Aerosmith coaster). God knows, Phantom's brought a ton of cash to Toronto over the years.
Purely speculation, though.
