Two New Thrilling Attractions Coming to Canada's Wonderland in 2017

Both Canada's Wonderland and its water park, Splash Works, will receive new thrill experiences in 2017, the park has revealed.  The additions include a towering water slide and a unique thrill ride that is sure to challenge even the bravest of riders.

This is Soaring Timbers, a twirling flat ride that will be the first of its kind installed in North America.  Soaring Timbers features "two massive rotating gondolas that swing riders through sweeping arcs while rotating 360 degrees."  Canada's Wonderland is home to a very impressive lineup of flat rides, and this addition will further cement them as a leader in that genera.

Soaring Timbers will be a Mondial Inferno, a flat ride that I honestly never heard of until now.  The ride's smooth movements look like they provide a very disorienting experience.  Here is some footage that Mondial has showing an Inferno in motion:

The second addition will be in Splash Works, a new water slide tower named Muskoka Plunge.  Standing 60 feet tall, the attraction features four separate body slides that all start with drop chambers, allowing the floor to fall out from beneath riders as they plunge downward.  The slides' layout includes a series of s-curves that will be taken at a maximum speed of 25 miles per hour.

No official word yet on where in the park the two new attractions will be located.
