WindSeeker tower ride back open at Canada's Wonderland

WindSeeker render

The new WindSeeker tower ride at Canada's Wonderland is back up-and-running, after technical problems caused it be to be shut down soon after its public debut.

Screamscape reports that the ride has been operating for most of this week, with the issues having seemingly been overcome. WindSeeker has previously opened briefly before being forced to close after a mechanical failure. The park becomes the first in the world to open a version of Mondial's WindSeeker attraction.

The ride sees guests swinging around the central tower in a vertigo-inducing variation on the classic "Chair-O-Plane" attraction. Identical attractions are due to open at Knott's Berry Farm, Kings Island and Cedar Point during 2011, but all have suffered from lengthy delays.

The video below shows a test run of Canada's Wonderland's WindSeeker:

WindSeeker becomes the tallest ride at Canada's Wonderland, standing some 70 feet taller than the previous tallest rides Drop Tower and the Behemoth rollercoaster. It sits on the site of the Jet Scream attraction, which has been removed from the park.
