Book me a trip to Toronto, stat!

Published: September 1, 2013 at 5:03 AMWhile I do not think Cedar Fair's new dark ride will compare favorably to anything Disney or Universal would accomplish (why in the world would marketing folks even invite such comparison????), I applaud the attempt and look forward to seeing other installations of this type at Cedar Fair parks closer to me (like Worlds of Fun - SteelHawk? Seriously? What a joke!).
Published: September 1, 2013 at 9:38 AMMaybe the money allotted for Carowinds will go to something more unique and family friendly like this.... than to yet another coaster or water park attraction. The park is nothing but coasters on one side and bathing suit attractions on the other. They need to fix that. Carowinds needs to become more than a teenagers play place. It's why I quit going to my local park. Maybe with this out of the box thinking at Cananda's Wonderland there might be some hope for the future.
