The 2nd Huss Toppel Tower in North America is stated to have a 2006 opening at MarineLand Canada this year. It is also reported that it will have a walrus theme. Can't wait to try this consider ML-C is only 30 mins away from me:)

Good to see some rides and money going into this park now, after years of nothing new. The drop tower was a nice addition last year (or the year before?).

The drop tower was actually 2003, but took forever to build & open.
Topple Tower is a nice addition, but the park is still lacking in rides. As great of a marketable thrill this will be, it'd be nice to get a few other flats here & there so one has a lot more to do between shows.
Considering that there's no more orca show, it's one less show to see and therefore, one less thing to do at the park.
I know eventually they'll be getting a new coaster or two as they've mentioned that's the avenue they want to take... but the question remains when.

Now the question remains...will they ever finish the themed elements on Dragon Mountain...LOL! They should change the name to Construction Mountain, riding through all those metal unfinished frames.

If they ever decide to really take some funding towards rides & maybe place a ride or two within the vicinity of Dragon Mountain... they might... eventually... but that's only if they got cash floating around.
Last I e-mailed them (2yrs ago), they said that it wasn't in their plans... but that focus has changed recently, so it's possible. It's just not marketable, so it's only if they have a million or two lying around that they'd do such an upgrade (or if it could also be incorporated into another ride).
