PCW Announces for 2006 - No new ride

Thursday, August 18, 2005 3:44 PM
Marketing material sent to exisiting PCW passholders today confirms new attractions for 2006.

Mission Impossible Stunt Spectacular:

The Mission Impossible Stunt spectacular is a live, high action, Hollywood Style stunt show featuring spectacular special effects based on the blockbuster Paramount movies and hit television series.

FX Theatre:

All new show based on a "Hollywood Blockbuster Film"

Nickelodeon Celebration Parade:

Guests are invited to join the Rugrats, Spongebobb Squarepants, The Wild Thornberrys and many more, as more than 70 performers and floats will celebrate in a Hollywood style, world-class parade.

Season pass incentives continue to be thier focus. Buy 2 passes or more at one time for $59.99 each and get the rest of 2005 plus 2006.

Overall I'm disappointed in this announcement. It appeared as though changes in the Waterpark this year were leading the way for new slides and attractions there for next year. Unless they are to be announced later, it looks like no new ride for Wonderland until 2007.

I don't think that's anywhere close to an announcement. It doesn't really even explain what the FX film is and all the parks will probably get the stunt show. Paramount doesn't usually reveal everything for the following season in the mailer by this time in the season. I don't think you should give up on anything else just yet..

Ummm just to let u know.. usually every year the change the fx theatre show anyways.. the paramount theatre show changes and the parade seems to be new.. plus if u actually apply for season pass ud see that there was a question.. design your own slide question.. so maybe there will be a slide announcement.. also because wipeout was removed remeber that...and this might not be the only announcement but if it is.. im REALLY dissapointed.. because im sure theyve pulled in MORE then enough money this year to put sumthign in and they HAVE added something new for the park EVERY year since it opened and this will be this 1st year and as the park gets more and more popular every year with torontos population skyrocketing.. i doubt this is all theyll do..... unless there planning on refurbishing all the rides and repainting them.. hope this aint it.. ****ty deal paramount.. your better then this.:(

Joey, I'm not trying to be too hard on you, but you don't seem to get the format of Coasterbuzz at all. Everyone of your sentences ends in an ellipis (look it up if you don't know what that is), when a simple period will suffice. Actually making a sentence (and not a run on sentence) instead of having random thoughts helps also. Punctuation is another problem for you. It takes less than a second to put a ' between the letters they and ll to make "they'll." Spelling counts for a lot as well. When you're spelling a simple elementary word such as "something" "sumthign", I had to wonder if you had made it out of second grade. Remember, Coasterbuzz isn't a chat room, so there's no need to use Internet abbreviations. You say "what does it matter?" Well, it matters to me and a lot of other people on this site.

Now comes the part where I blast you for your post. You said that PCW has gotten something new every year, but yet they take one year off and you're crying foul. Other Paramount parks have taken a year or years off from adding attractions, so what makes PCW special? Take PKD for example. There have been many gap years. Adding new attractions every year there has only been a recent trend.

Well, as far as I remember, they HAVEN'T had a new show in the FX Theatre for a while. Or, at least, not this year anyways... I don't remember when Spongebob was added, but that's been the last *new* show. Although usually when new shows are added, they're more of an add-on to something else.

And I was kinda hoping they'd bring back the Bond one sometime.

Anyways, I kind of suspected this. Without a major ride removal (which would most likely end up being Dragon Fire or SkyRide) there's not really much room for a new thrill ride. And it *has* been a while since they changed/expanded the kids' area. Good chance that this will be the year that HB Land goes away, with more NickToon theming.

Unless the parade is in the main park, Kidzville/HB-Land/Nick Central doesn't really seem like it has big enough paths for a decent parade.

Additionally, there's still a good sized chunk of land behind Nick Central, where the aquarium was/is. Something could be done with that area, possibly.

The park does seem to have quite a few open spaces. I personally think it's time for them to put in a real Signature ride.

They have been adding a very good assortment of family and flat rides.

I think a big expansion to the Waterpark and one more upgrade to the kids area... and then build a heavy hitter: A nice Arrow/SS Hyper with 3 trains.

Friday, August 19, 2005 2:27 PM
I don't know... They have the huge open space by the employee entrance/north entrance, but it involves crossing Major Mack, or going under, but I don't see any of that happening. Everywhere else they're either bordered Jane, 400 or their own road. They *could* maybe go over the lot, but they'd probably still have to do something with Dragon Fire first.

Again, SkyRider is sitting in very a very prime position. If they got rid of it, a hyper could interact pretty easily with Canyon, Timberwolf or Vortex, plus they have the huge greenspace between Vortex and Jet Scream.

They *do* need SOMETHING in that area, though. Jet Scream feels like it's sitting in the middle of nowhere, and there's the huge stretch with almost nothing except a cookie stall.

But I'm more betting on waterpark/kids area for next season. Especially the kids area.

Actually, it ends in an ellipsis. ;) And to get really technical they don't end with an ellipsis either, as an ellipsis consists of three dots (...) not two or five. :)

And since there are multiple, wouldn't it be Ellipsi?

Just remember, there's a difference between missing a letter here and there (which I did), which we all do, and just not taking the time to care. Joey, I never said you're a loser. All I was asking is that you take time and follow the format which you signed up for. This includes proper sentence structure and spelling. It's not a chat room. There's no need to rush when you're typing your thoughts.
Saturday, August 20, 2005 7:29 PM
Alright well whatever, I don't care anymore. Just Im so used to it because im usually on msn while im on here and don't pay attention. But ill type perfect from now on, even though I've seen alot of mistakes on here. I know that you didn't call me a loser, but you made it out to be that way. As a Matter of fact I'm not in elementary school and i did get a 92% this year in English. I just usually dont care about spelling on the computer unless Im doing a project. Ive seen MANY people use "..." on here and spell alot of things wrong, froget comma's, forget period's etc. but, I guess since ur acting like my teacher, you could do what a teacher does, and teach me how to spell since I don't know how. Or If you want I'll take 5 Mins out of my time, open up spell check and scan everything I put on here just to impress you.

Anyways, you guys aren't reading the flyer or the press release properly.

We are not getting a new show in the FX theatre. At least not announced yet we aren't. The Hollywood Blockbuster FX Theatre is a entirely new venue where the stunt show will be held.

"Next season, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE STUNT SPECTACULAR will premiere in an all-new 2,500-seat Stunt Show Arena at Paramount Canada's Wonderland. The show is slated for a May opening, which will coincide with the opening of Paramount Pictures’ Mission: Impossible 3, currently in production. This is a limited engagement!"

That's taken right from the press release (http://www.canadas-wonderland.com/news/detail.cfm?item_id=221)

Also, this is what interests me the most;

"The audience will feel that they are part of the show, with many of the stunt sequences being performed in-the-round and even underneath the audience! The immersive sets, motorcycle stunts, elaborate acrobatic fight and chase scenes fill out this show’s unbelievable arsenal of action, mystery and adventure."

"underneath the audiance" is the main part from that quote that sparks my curiousity. I am not quite sure how that is possible but I will be happy to find out.

Regardless, with FearFest coming, the stunt show and Nick parade coming, I think PCW is starting to round itself out quite nicely as Paramounts #2 park, close beind PKI (although I still think PCW is just a TAD better, and NO, I am not starting a "which is better" thread).

Saturday, August 20, 2005 9:58 PM
Ah, cool. I was just going by what was said in the thread. Sounds nice, although I still think the kid's area will get a makeover too.

I'm guessing it might replace Kingswood. I honestly don't remember there being that many concerts there the past few years, aside from the cultural days. And as an aside, considering what happened earlier in the year (they ran out of room, so people apparently tried to break through Psyclone and Sledgehammer, closing those rides) they might prefer something a little more closed.

Then again, ya never know. They could surprise us.

Although I'm inclined to agree with PCW being Paramount's #2 park, it doesn't have the signature rides to really compete with PKI.

Saturday, August 20, 2005 10:32 PM

If you think PCW has it bad, look here at Paramount's Great America. My point would be to look at only the major coaster they have installed. Don't think about flats, kiddies, or family coasters. Just look at how little IMO, they have done for that park. The biggest, baddest coaster they had was Stealth...and they sent it to Carowinds! Who has problems itself.

When I was at PCW in '99, I had fun even back then, (before they started adding all kinds of flats). I can't wait to get back up there again and see how it's changed. They seem to be adding every season now.

I would have to agree with Duklyon on how Paramount looks at it's parks, but I'll go further. To me, it looks like this: 1) PKI 2) PCW 3) PKD 4) PCar 5) PGA *** Edited 8/21/2005 2:33:58 AM UTC by Floorless Fan***

Alright Im not trying to complain or anything, but i sure hope this stuntshow helps to drain the lines. The lines are Rediculous here, and i do see something new for 07' (Possibly Waterpark Improvements). The Show Might be interesting and ill probably check it out atleast once, but if i wanted to see a show, id go to the movies. I Think its nice what they are doing here, and sure, it will probably attract more families. Im sure they know what they're doing and correct me if im wrong, but they do whats best for the park. Just because 1,000 enthusiasts want a new coaster or ride, there's 2,000,000 people from The GP who don't care what we get. And I Agree With PCW being Paramount's #2 Park also, Just hopefully we will get that signature coaster/ride we have been hoping for.
Saturday, August 20, 2005 11:02 PM
Hang in there Joey. Who know's what will happen?

I like to go to the shows at least once when their new! And I do have to admit to seeing the School Of Rock 4-5 times! To me, it's the best Paramount has done in years on a show. (esp. after that Tomb Raider travesty a few years back.)

Last Friday we went to PKI with a large group of friends, and other than stopping at every other stand for ice water, we spent a good amount of time in the Festhaus, (Yes, I did DDR...and I still suck at it!). Plus, we went to SoR to get in the A/C, and out of the heat/humidity.

Saturday, August 20, 2005 11:07 PM
...Carowinds! Who has problems itself.

What problems does Carowinds have? Since 1999, they have added 4 brand new coasters, added a relocated coaster and themed it heavily, added an interactive dark ride that is a hit, and turned their kids section into Nick Central, with a few new family and kiddie flats.

The only thing I could say that PCar really needs is a nice major flat or 2, and to turn the waterpark into Boomerang Bay, both of which will come soon enough, I'm sure.

As for PCW, they haven't announced anything yet, and even if they do, so what? That is still a major new stunt show, I hope all the parks get it. Everyone has to have an off year eventually.

Saturday, August 20, 2005 11:27 PM
Mayby they do need an off-year, unless they are saving up for something. I don't Really know whats going on there. Also, They could be refurbishing all the coaster's, giving hem all fresh coats of paint? Who knows, all I know is its better to get something than nothing at all.
Saturday, August 20, 2005 11:41 PM
It's funny, a lot of boards people are saying that the stunt show means an "off year" but IMO I think it's a great investment. PCW is slowly starting to round itself out in terms of attraction selection.

We have great flats (posisbly the best selection), some great coasters (we do have a high count, I belive 14 now), and now we are starting to get the experiences like the stunt show and parades that make the other parks such a hit.

I think this stunt show, and the new theatre they are building for it will bring smiles to many faces this year.
