Time Warp (formerly known as Tomb Raider: The Ride) is a steel flying roller coaster located at Canada's Wonderland in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada. It is Canada's first and only flying roller coaster. From its opening in 2004 to 2007, the coaster was known as Tomb Raider: The Ride. No significant changes were made to the coaster itself, only the sign at the entrance and the ride's queue line theming were modified.
The ride first opened on May 2, 2004 as Tomb Raider: The Ride. In 2008, it was renamed to Time Warp.
The ride was built by Zamperla and has a spiral lift hill, as with other Volare roller coasters. It has a yellow track with turquoise supports. The trains in the station are always moving and do not stop. Time Warp's restraint system consists of bulky padding that rests right next to riders' heads. There is also a chin rest below riders' chins. Riders can hold on to handlebars. Riders stand in metal cages and rest their feet on one of five metal rungs. Then a ride operator shuts the metal guard on top of each rider. Riders then rotate into a flying position.
After ascending the spiral lift hill, riders navigate a course of tight twists, turns, dives, and inversions.
Single cars. Riders are arranged 4 across in a single row, for a total of 4 riders per car. The ride has a very low capacity due to the complex restraint design and four-passenger trains.
