Canada's Wonderland 2011: WindSeeker

Canada's Wonerland has beaten its fellow Cedar Fair parks to the punch this morning and announced WindSeeker, a major new thrill ride for the 2011 season.

As expected, the contraption will be a Mondial ride of the same trade name, Windseeker. It will stand 301 ft. tall, and swing riders out at a 45 degree angle at a top speed of 30 m.p.h. There will be 32, 2 person seats to increase capacity on the $5 million ride.

WindSeeker will be located near Wonderland Mountain in what looks to be currently unused space. Construction is set to begin this fall with an anticipated Summer 2011 opening.
