Give them another three weeks to respond. They are still thawing and coming out of hibernation, thus are rather groggy yet.

Ok...I rarely post on these forums, but seeing that you hadn't had any advice on Drop Zone at Wonderland (and may not have any more) I couldn't resist.
Will you die on drop zone?? Probably not. BUT! Will you plummet a God-forsaken 70 stories or so, with no breath to scream, arms flailing wildly with no comforts to grasp onto, your ****** surpassing the tip of your tongue????

That'd be a 10-4 little buddy...Have fun!!

Oh yeah, the view was Spectacular at the top though.

You made her, thus it is your God-given responsibility to unmake her, and keep me free of "My Heart Will Go On," while I'm shopping at the mall or buying 1,000 rolls of TP at Sams Club. period. (in case you didn't notice the period before the last statement).

Just to clear this up for all you think headed Americans, I am Canadian, and **** proud of it, I would live nowhere else. I like in Kelowna, B.C. For those of you not familiar with the geography of Canada it is in the interior of B.C. a hundred or so kilometers north of the American border. Kelowna is situated in a desert (you heard me), a desert, with very little rain. The temperature in summer here peaks at around 40-42 degrees celcius, around 110 degrees farenheight. In winter we get maybe a foot of snow at the most, and it only lasts a week or two. There are cacti, and scorpions and everything else you expect in a desert here. West of Kelowna along the coast of BC there is a temperate rainforest. Where I am sitting right now gets hotter than Arizona in the summer, and stays much much warmer than most of the US during winter. Snow wise, we see nearly none unless you go up into the mountains. Just thought I'd clear some things up cause I'm sick of people asking me where I park my dogsled. And yes, we do say please and thank-you in Canada.

Hardly.
Technically yes, it's in a desert. But definitely not in the extremes you say. The last few years have been hotter than normal, but than that's pretty much normal for everywhere.
You know what, never mind. I was going to correct the exaggerations, but **** it.

Drop Zone is great, and it won't make you puke like all those other rides at Canada's Wonderland that spin you around until you puke. :)

Go Canada!

Maybe she just didn't like YOUR FAT American ***!

Sorry fellow Americans but this kind of insult needed an equal reaction of my par ;p Do notice that "your" is bold and in caps making it NOT a generalisation.

By the way Abbay. Canada here !

I R Canadian!! XD I luv Canada. Born and raised in good ol' Ontario! I don't live in Tornto but im there so often it's like I am one with the street bums! Haha...not really!
I miss Canada's Wonderland. T_T When I was a kid I'd go there with my family every day of the summer and ride everything!
Anyone been to CNE? That place is fun too. It's alot cheaper than PCW.

That sort of thing is just uncalled for. Canada is one of our best friends, as far as countries go. Add to that, they are our neighbor and put up with all the **** that comes with being associated with us and they're damned nice people.

I had the opportunity briefly to travel through Canada a couple of times. Beautiful country and very nice people.

I live right near Wonderland, but don't go that often. Last time I was there, DropZone was kind of fun :)
Give it a shot!

The 'Gravitron' almost killed me at the CNE a few years ago.

I've been a Torontonian since the day I was born.

CNE rides will kill you, but I love the Gravitron too much not to go on it. As for Wonderland, I'd rather go to Centre Island. It's more scenic and I have great childhood memories of the place. The CNtower is a tourist trap, in my opinion. If you're planning on visiting TO at any point in the future, try some of the cultural and unique areas like the Distillery District, China Town, and Queen Street. They're much more fun and interesting. ^^;

I live in in Canada. It stinks. I was born in Australia and had to move here and sweet god I SWEAR it gets colder every year. I HATE trudging through like 5 feet of snow to get to class or have my nipples shoot out at the world because it's -5959595959595000000 degrees outside. And Canada's Wonderland is ok...until you reach 19 then you head to clubs. The only thing I like about Canada. Hoochie women rule.

I was recently on a trip there. Canada's Wonderland was really fun. Drop Zone and Top Gun both kicked ***. I got a rice hat and a fake sword thingy from China Town. Yes the CN Tower is a tourist trap. The ROM was just boring. The Ontario Science Center was okay, but still boring.

Spadina/Queen is my favourite area and I love going to down to Waterfront and Front street for a good walk. ^^
