Canada's Wonderland to add wet & wild thrills with two new attractions in 2017

VAUGHAN, ON, Aug. 26, 2016 /CNW/ - Canada's Wonderland announced today it will be showcasing two new unique and adrenaline-pumping attractions in 2017. With the addition of towering water slides in Splash Works and a new thrill ride that will be the first of its kind in North America, guests will experience two exhilarating parks and one memorable 2017 season.

Muskoka Plunge, a 60 ft. (18 m) tall waterslide complex featuring four speed slides, will kick-off the summer fun in Splash Works. Riders will feel the adrenaline rush when they step into an enclosed launch chamber and suddenly plummet into a high-speed free fall through S-curves and 360° loops at speeds of approximately 40 km/h.

For thrill-seekers that prefer to stay dry, Canada's Wonderland will be adding to its arsenal of world-class thrill rides with Soaring Timbers. This unique ride experience will send guests spiraling through the sky on two massive rotating gondolas that swing riders through sweeping arcs while rotating 360 degrees.

Canada's Wonderland has also recently announced a limited time offer on 2017 Season Passes for only $68.99 ($21.00 less than the current Season Pass price). As an additional benefit to purchasing next year's Season Pass now, new Passholders will receive one free visit this year and renewing Passholders will receive one free 2016 Fast Lane Plus pass, valid for one day this season.

For more information visit canadaswonderland.com.

Canada's Wonderland is owned and operated by Cedar Fair Entertainment Company, a publicly traded partnership that is listed for trading on The New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "FUN." In addition to Canada's Wonderland, Cedar Fair owns and operates 10 other amusement parks, two water parks, one indoor water park, and five hotels. Cedar Fair also operates the Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park in California under a management contract.

This ride just LOOKS like the definition of extended downtime. Hopefully it won't be, because that looks nuts.

Canada's Wonderland likes weird flat rides. Looks like this ride will be pretty intense.

I always wished they'd make a bigger Huss Jump2 think or whatever it's called.

I second this. Sledgehammer at Canada's Wonderland is a ton of fun.

It really looks so far they are testing it out manually operated. I really hope it will get a decent/worthy program, as I doubt it's going to operate manually for guests.

The only thing I can think of to make this even better is turn the seating in the other direction
What are these for?

Indeed. I heard once that Ripsaw at Alton Towers used to have several different intensity modes - that would be interesting to see on a wider scale (perhaps different length cycles for less busy days?)
