Description

from Canada's Wonderland
Canada’s Wonderland is home to more than 200 attractions, including 16 roller coasters, two children’s areas and Splash Works, our 20-acre water park. The park features North America’s largest variety of rides, including Canada’s tallest and fastest coaster – Leviathan, Canada’s longest wooden coaster – Mighty Canadian Minebuster and Canada’s first inverted coaster – Flight Deck.

NEW in 2019:
Yukon Striker and Frontier Canada
Be exhilarated by Yukon Striker's epic journey high above the park's skyline where you'll hang over a 90-degree drop for three breathtaking seconds, staring 245 feet down into an underwater tunnel. Then suddenly you dive, reaching speeds of 130 km/h and soaring through four dynamic inversions, including a complete 360-degree loop – the only one of its kind for a dive coaster. Be prepared for the ride of a lifetime beginning in 2019!

The launch of Yukon Striker coincides with the official opening of Frontier Canada, a gold rush-themed attraction area in Canada's Wonderland. Originally conceived of for the park's opening in 1981, Frontier Canada was never realized until now. Other attractions to be featured in the section include Mighty Canadian Minebuster, Lumberjack, Soaring Timbers, Flying Canoes, Vortex, Timberwolf Falls and White Water Canyon.

Canada's Wonderland is transformed for 14 terrifying nights in September & October to Halloween Haunt. This year will be bigger, better, and more terrifying than ever. Brave your way through horrifying mazes, scare zones, and live shows, in addition to 700 monsters prowling the Park.

We were there at a very busy time and spent 2 full days running around the park. The fast passes at very expensive and makes it difficult for a family of 4 to afford therefore a lot of time is spent in line ups. Every having pass that gave us early and late access to the park did not help with this. The food is overpriced as well, would I go back well I am not much of a ride person and would only do it if my kids really wanted to.

I used to love this place. Though it has become one rollercoaster after another. There are zero immersive rides/experiences. Some coasters are good, some others are seemingly insane. Food at the park has always been a meh so the typical pizza slice would do. Is a shame. So much potential.

"Best entertainment for families"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed March 04, 2019 NEW
I have 4 kids, this is the best investment. Season passes for all every year. We also get the souvinier bottles that are 30 bucks but you get free refills all season long. So very much worth it. They also have a meal plan and a payment plan which makes things so much easier to deal with! I highly recommend a season pass, you will get small discounts on certain things you buy. Keep an eye out for jacked up food prices. The only ones that are sort of true to the dollar would be the Pizza Pizza and possibly Tims (not in the kids area) With the season's pass you also get early entry to the water park. If you have a large family and looking for something to keep the kids entertained this summer minus the summer camps... this is the place!!! The only down fall is you can not bring your own food unless it is snacks for young children.

What is the Boarding Pass Program?
The Boarding Pass Program assists guests with mobility restrictions or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) by allowing them to access rides at designated times via the exit ramp. The program works as follows:

  • Guests with a mobility impairment or ASD should visit Guest Services upon their arrival at the park to express his/her inability to wait in the regular line. Some questions are asked to ensure that the rider has the required physical criteria in order to safely experience rides, and a Boarding Pass is issued for the guest in question and up to 3 riding companions. 
  • In addition to a Boarding Pass, the guest with a mobility impairment or ASD will receive a “Rider Access Form” that lists the rides that the guest with a disability can safely enjoy.
  • The rider (or a member of their party) obtains a boarding time from the ride associate at the Alternate Access Entrance, equivalent to the length of the ride line. The rider can then wait comfortably away from the queue area.
  • The guest listed on the Boarding Pass must be present as a rider when a Boarding Pass is being utilized. 
  • Guests may not accumulate more than one boarding time at a time.

Can I go on the rides if I am wearing a cast?
Guests wearing casts and braces may be restricted from rides where the cast/brace will not fit inside the ride unit or where it will present a hazard to the guest or others. Guests with full arm (elbow restricted) and full leg (knee restricted) casts or braces are restricted from most rides and water slides at Canada’s Wonderland.
  • Braces with exposed metal parts are not permitted on select slides in Splash Works.
  • Casts of any kind are not allowed on Behemoth, Launch Pad, Leviathan, Muskoka Plunge, Sledge Hammer, Soaring Timbers, Super Soaker, and The Plunge.
