Canada’s Wonderland

Canada's Wonderland

Welcome to Canada's Wonderland, the 330-acre theme park located in Vaughan, Ontario, just 40 kilometers north of downtown Toronto. Built in 1981, this park has remained Canada's premier amusement park for over 35 years now, providing families with the 'most exhilarating collection of rides and coasters in North America'.

You will find thrill rides, coasters, kid zones, a water park, and plenty of eating options throughout the park, plus a maze of event space regularly used for concerts, festivals, and shows. Younger children should start at one of the 2 family-friendly zones, Kidville, or Camp Snoopy. Within both, you will find over 25 attractions and character encounters, and during the fall Camp Snoopy turns into Camp Spooky! There is also the family-friendly Dinosaurs Alive! attraction, with over 40 life-sized dinosaurs on a 7-acre Jurassic environment. This interactive section puts science and technology at the forefront, providing an additional educational bonus perfect for school visits.

For serious thrills, however, you need to head to such rides as the Leviathan, a 306 foot tall coaster reaching speeds of 148 km/hour, the Behemoth, reaching 125 km/hr and soaring to 330 feet, or Soaring Timbers, a 66 foot tall sky-high spinning adventure with unbeatable 360 degree views of the park. There are over 20 acres of water-themed thrills as well, with pools, slides, rides, and rivers to make a splash in!

There are possible custom school programs and visit options as well, providing fun, affordable, and educational experiences for students. Group dining options are available, as there are over 36 total eating venues throughout, from snow cones to stir-fry.
