Sending a huge wave skywards

On hot days at Canada's Wonderland, there can be no better relief from the heat than a ride on Timberwolf Falls.

The shoot-the-chutes water ride was opened at the theme park in 1989 and sits in the Frontier Canada section behind Wonder Mountain. It was manufactured by Hopkins Rides, and is typical of their shoot the chutes models.

Riders sit in boats capable of holding up to twenty people. Timberwolf Falls has a very simple layout: boats climb a 15 metre high lift hill, turn around 180° at the top and plunge down the drop into the water below, sending a giant wave upwards. Of course, the water doesn't stay in the sky for long, and comes crashing back down on the boat, soaking all the riders together with anybody watching from the conveniently located bridge over the water channel.

Whether or not you actually ride it, stand on the bridge or just observe from a safe (dry) distance, Timberwolf Falls is a crowd-pleaser especially on hotter days. It's a simple ride, but time and again Hopkins Rides have proved that their shoot the chutes rides can deliver exactly what a water ride needs to without any messing around.
