Canada's Wonderland to remove Jet Scream to make way for WindSeeker

Jet Scream image

Canada's Wonderland is to remove its Jet Scream attraction ahead of the 2011 season, with the ride already appearing for sale online.

The Intamin Looping Starship, which has been at the park since 1990, is being advertised on the Ital International site for $150,000. It is listed as being available from October 15, 2010 - suggesting that it could be removed ahead of the end of Canada's Wonderland's 2010 season on October 31.

Jet Scream

Jet Scream has been in place at Canada's Wonderland for 20 years.

Jet Scream is one of a dwindling number of Looping Starships still in operation. Resembling a classic swinging ship attraction, the ride's "ship" completes a full 360 revolution, and can leave riders suspended upside down for several seconds. Canada's Wonderland's version is currently located in the "Action Zone" area of the park.

Jet Scream will be replaced for the 2011 season by WindSeeker, a vertigo-inducing variation on the classic "Chair-O-Plane" attraction. The ride will see guests reaching speeds of up to 30 miles per hour as they swing in circles around a 301-feet-tall tower, taking in panoramic views of the park and its surroundings.

to canada's wonderland Jet scream is a good ride and some people love it to bits so I don't see why that you have to remove it from the park it does not deserve to retire just yet 2011 is your 30th anniversary and I bet that you'll be celebrating in a big way and I think that guests would love to see jet scream around for one last season (2011) then if you want to retire it mid season of 2011 thats fine with me just keep it around for lets say from may till july of 2011 after that you can (retire) it just when people look on cwmania and they see windseeker there and jet scream beside it then thats what it should be guests think that the picture of windseeker and the rides around it will be the real thing next season

I'm glad that they are finally taking Jet Scream out of wonderland. I didn't like the ride at all. I mean I am a thrill seeker and I love my roller coasters and all but I didn't like jet scream. They would buckle down too tight and i felt dizzy after that ride.

Good riddance! I've never liked that ride. The new one they're putting in sounds very exciting.

First of all u cant really negotiate weather they keep jet scream or not haha.
its there decision and second of all
the ride sucked anyways so it can go to the dump for all i care.
Third of all i really think the new ride will be astonishing because it looks really awesome.
its like taking the swing carasell and suspending it 350 ft above ground.
Im sorry but that sounds RAD : )
just saying.
THanks Wonderland for this amazing addition to your park.

Windseeker is a nice relaxing ride but it's no jetscream. R.I.P. I've gone on every ride at wonderland including leviathan and none are as thrilling as being suspended upside down on a swinging ship.
