Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Shockwave, a spinner at Canada's Wonderland. (The minimum height to ride is 54 inches.)
This marks the second Mondial ride installation at the park. Shockwave, a Mondial Top Scan, is an intense spinning attraction that features a ring of six pods, with five seats available in each pod. The ring is supported by a giant arm that lifts the ride off the ground. Once the ride is in the air, both the ring & the arm will spin in a counter-clockwise direction. Oh, did I forget to mention that the individual pods are free to spin 360 degrees forwards or backwards? The ride does accommodote larger guests.
Its not a bad ride, but if you're small like me.. It does hurt. The safety restraints are rather huge, and I spent a fairly large amount of time during the ride with my shoulder wedged into where my head was suppose to be. Needless to say, never went on it since. - Jessica W
