Yesterday was media day for Tundra Twister at Canada's Wonderland. The latest in a long line of amazing flat rides at the park.
In this update we've got some pics and video from media day including a ride POV and B-Roll and interviews with Grace Peacock, Director of Communications and Peter Switzer, Director of Maintenance and Construction for Canada's Wonderland.
It’s a lot of fun! Not nearly as intense as I thought it would be. But each ride is very different from the last. Rode over a dozen times. Some rides you barely flip and get floater airtime. Other rides you flip lots or hang upside down for periods of time. It just depends on the weight distribution. Definitely re-rideable. And no one complained about dizziness or feeling sick even after lots of rides.
Tundra Twister is NOW OPEN!!!
Below are some more pictures of Tundra Twister the park sent us along with some facts about this incredible new attraction.

Last week we were invited out to California's Great America to check out the all new themed area NorCal County Fair! This rethemed area consists of the area from RailBlazer all the way to Drop Tower. And it looks fantastic!
There is one attraction yet to come in this area that is scheduled to open sometime in July! We really hope that with all the recent fantastic work going on at the park that maybe it might be saved? This area really needs this park.
California’s Great America to open NorCal County Fair on May 26, a renovated section of the park that immerses guests into the Bay Area’s backyard. Plus, an all-new ride coming Summer 2023.
SANTA CLARA, CA -- From hiking and rafting amid the redwoods, soaring above the coastline’s sandy beaches, cruising along wonderful scenic roadways, to enjoying the great fresh food and wine grown in its vast agricultural fields, Northern California has so much to see and do. NorCal County Fair will be just that: An all-new ride, a retheming of a beloved attraction, a renovated games gallery and a fully upgraded picnic area for more fun in the sun.
Barney Oldfield Speedway gets a makeover and a new name! Barney Oldfield’s Redwood Rally will return with a fresh new-look and scenic updates. Drivers are transported back in time with cars replicating the earliest roadsters on an extended track, passing over a dozen billboards and signage of California landmarks. Kids take the wheel (with a little guidance from underneath), control the gas pedal and take their parents for a drive. It is almost a rite of passage for California’s Great America kids and parents alike. At NorCal County Fair’s refreshed Games Gallery, guests will discover a wide array of interactive games and activities that are sure to entertain the entire family. The new decor celebrates Northern California's rich history and culture, with nods to the region's famous landmarks and icons. Later in the Summer, anticipate the all-new Pacific Gliders. A WindstarZ that allows guests to be the captain of their own experience as they catch wind like a real hang glider. It’s the perfect ride for both children and adults to feel the fresh California breeze when soaring through the sky.
A major renovation to The County Fair Picnic Grove delivers a relaxed, family-friendly setting for personal gatherings or large corporate picnics of up to 3,000 guests. In addition to wide-open dining areas, the Picnic Grove features a volleyball court and open green that provides additional recreational activities for groups. With a half-dozen semi-private picnic shelters of varying sizes, the Grove provides the perfect amount of space for groups to reserve for their outdoor dining events. To book a space, call the Group Sales Department at (408) 986-5853.
A Gold Season Pass is the best way to enjoy it all with unlimited admission to the new fun coming this summer plus throughout 2023, free parking, South Bay Shores Waterpark, discounts on select food and merchandise, and so much more!
