...that assumes they don't already have other plans for that land which were made before the decision to move Steel Venom was made, now wouldn't it? ;)

Looking at the list of revenues a few pages back, Canada's Wonderland is the only park in the top 5 not getting any investment this year (well at least nothing announced, which leads one to belive it's nothing major). This will make two years in a row with no new rides.
There must be something significant planned for '08 at Wonderland, and SV could be a huge win for this park.
1994 - FX Theatre Shows.
1995 - Top Gun
1996 - Xtreme Skyflyer
1997 - Drop Zone; Speedcity Raceway
1998 - Kidzville
1999 - The Fly
2000 - Cliffhanger; Scooby Doo's Haunted Mansion
2001 - Silver Streak; Shockwave; Kiddie Rides.
2002 - Psyclone/Splash Works Additions
2003 - Sledgehammer/Nick Central
2004 - Tomb Raider
2005 - Italian Job
2006 - Stunt show which is now gone.
Under Cedar Fair:
2007 - Nothing Major
2008 - Steel Venom Would be Wicked Nice for CW.
And whats really sad is the last MAJOR coaster addition we've gotten was Top Gun in 95 and basically all the rest came before then because after 95 all we got was The Fly(Wild Mouse), Silver Streak(Junior SLC), Tomb Raider(Volare), and IJ:ST(Premier LIM) and even those coasters are not what would classify as a real thrill seeking major ride. I hate the hole "Oh Canadians are dumb lets just put a little coaster and they won't know the difference" because seriously.. TOP GUN 1995 thats almost 11 years without something as big as an SLC(Which also sucks, and Top Gun ain't in very good condition if I must say so myself)
What i heard was Tomb Raider was just there... IJST was added to tie guests over THEN there was supposed to be some major coaster like an Intamin or B&M added between 08-2010.
Also, while I personally don't like the ride, Tomb Raider (Volare) was met with a 30% attendance increase in it's first year. The first marketable coaster added to the park in years, and bang- an attendance record.
IJ carried over last year as a "new" ride because many people couldn't ride it in it's first year (long lines everyday), but the lack of new ride in 2006 was commented on by many guests. 2007 might be a bit of a struggle for them with nothing new again.
Let's see a floorless B&M between IJ and Sledgehammer, or GL's Steel Venom in between Vortex and Jet Scream. Also, Splash Works needs some love. They lost 4 slides (torn down) at the beginning of last year and with nothing to replace them, the lines and crowds were unbelievable in 2006.

But hey.....think of how good that quote would look in the park's next press release.

To my way of thinking, wouldn't Canada's Wonderland be better off with a big, new, thrilling coaster, rather than SV? I mean, it has got to be cheap for CF to move (especially compared to X-Flight/Firehawk). As pointed out above, it's been some time since the park received a major coaster, so I don't think SV would fit the bill for that task. Now something like Dominator...
CW is certainly long overdue for a major coaster. Since it takes some time to plan and design these things, it's only logical for Cedar Fair to slap SV down there as a stop-gap measure, to tide the locals over until a brand new, significant coaster can be installed. It's the same tactic they just employed with X-Flight...er, Firehawk, at KI.
CW would be my number one guess where SV will end up going, with Dorney a close number two.
I can't think of know one on Coasterbuzz who doesnt know about www.rcdb.com .
First of all, it's no one. Second of all, just a few post's up you were asking when the last coaster was added to CWo and if you were still too lazy to go up a bit more you would see a nice big chart I made listing 2005 as the last year Wonderland got a coaster which, incase your STILL too lazy to check is named: Italian Job: Stunt Track. If you want to know more "google" it on RCDB since you "KNOW" about it so much;)
and ^ Yes, I also think CWo would be a GREAT home for SV, and NOT just because it's close to me.. because if that was the case, Geauga is only an extra 3 hour drive from me than CWo is and Dorney is about 4 (If it does end up going to Dorney). Hell, it could be SO marketable with the Ontarians:
- Tallest coaster in the park
- Fastest coaster in Canada
- Tallest coaster in Canada
- Only Impulse coaster in Canada
- First of it's kind in Canada(and hell, it was also the first of it's kind in America and I hope CF doesn't make that a reason why CWo wouldn't be a good home for it).
I could see it now: "Come ride Canada's Tallest, Fastest and most Thrill coaster, ___Hawk, only here at Canada's Wonderland"
