Canada's Wonderland's SkyRider Standing Tall in New Home

The ride known as SkyRider at Canada's Wonderland may just be a memory in the minds of visitors to that park, but it's an exciting new attraction at a park across the globe.  Located in Italy, Cavallino Matto is a small amusement park that picked up the coaster when the Canadian park was ready to retire it.

Now known as Freestyle, the stand-up coaster was designed by Togo and operated at Canada's Wonderland from 1985 to 2014.

Freestyle has received a bright new paint job, with electric yellow track that can be seen for what looks like miles - even brighter looking when set on the black supports.  The park has cleared out a highly wooded area that's just large enough for the ride's track, which includes a vertical loop and large helix.
