    Ya i've heard that to. It does look like a cool ride but there isn't nearly as much freedom as B&M flying coasters. Not even close. The cars for the Volares look like coffins. You can't look under you. I don't realy care if its realy rough. The problems are that you can't see well, and the lines are going to be like the fly. Very long wait. There are 7 cars and each car only holds 4 people. Thats the problem with coasters that only have seperate cars and not trains with numorous cars.

    Yeah, but i am sure that it will be a good hit and I would take anything at that park since they havent got a coaster in years!!!

    Hey, Is it gonna be the same layout as the one at SFEG????

    Ya I think so. Thats what i've heard. I heard someone say that it was the Volare layout so if the word layout is the track layout then I guess so.

    To all the PCWers on the boards: I'm really sorry guys.

    Yes, it's going to be the same Volare layout as the the SFEG model of the coaster. There's a good chance that they won't change anything, so don't count on it being smooth what so ever.

    Told you it'd be a dissapointment.

    There's a slight possibility that it will be a custom layout however. Not saying that'll make it good or anything.

    It's going to reside next to Top Gun, removing the Fury and some of Top Gun's overflow, and relocating the Great Whale.

    Of course I feel special, but I don't need this to do that silly.

    Indeed I am. I used to be Skeeber here too until they gave me this nifty avatar and some cool super powers. Oddly, I'm a mod over at PCW net too... probably because it's partly my site...

    I was thinking that it might go there since they are really trying to boost that area of the park.

    Yea that ride can't go into the Action Zone area of the park. Not enough action in the ride and to much pain. Action Zone is only for decent or good rides that are fast and dont look like the manufacturers just bent metal and glued it together.

    I heard that the Whale will end up beside Flavourator, but I'm not sure how much truth there is in that.

    I don't think they will name it that. I e-mailed the park recently and gave them the idea to hold a contest to decide what the name for it will be. Hopefully they decide to do that so the public has a choice in the matter.

    Has anyone seen any construction for the ride? I hope that it is a different color, trak layout, and different cars. If they made it look good with better cars the ride itself shouldn't be too bad.

    They are not starting work until the season ends in a couple of weeks.

    It would be kind of hard to start construction when the rides that are being removed are still operating.

    But look for a big suprise when it comes to the theming... I know I was shocked (Not just at the fact that yes, it will be themed, lol).

    I can't wait to ride the Zamperla Flyer. I asked Canada's Wonderland what the name was for the ride but they couldn't answer. This is going to be my first flying coaster! I am so excited!

    I think that with this ride coming in that the excess Top Gun queues and unused hangars will be removed. Don't forget that it wasn't long ago that the line for this ride made good use of all of the queue space. This would clear a lot of space for the new rides queue lines. PCW did the same thing when Cliffhanger came in...they removed the excess lines from Dragon Fire.

    In addition to the Great Whale of China, Shiva's Fury is also being removed.
