Situated just outside the city of Toronto, Canada's Wonderland is the largest theme park in Canada.
The park was opened in 1981 as the country's first major theme park and has grown to have one of the largest collections of rollercoasters in the world.
Canada's Wonderland is laid out with themed areas surrounding a waterfall covered mountain centrepiece known as Wonder Mountain. Several of the park's rides utilise the mountain, with the Vortex suspended coaster dropping over the side, the Thunder Run mine train passing through the mountain, and the Wonder Mountain's Guardian dark ride fully enclosed inside it.
Other notable rides include Leviathan, B&M's first Giga Coaster; Mighty Canadian Minebuster, a wooden rollercoaster; Dragon Fyre, an Arrow Looping Coaster; and Timberwolf Falls, a shoot-the-chutes water ride.
Canada's Wonderland is one of the largest parks in the Cedar Fair chain but, being in Canada, feels less brash and in-your-face compared with its US counterparts. It's easy to reach from downtown Toronto via Metro and Bus, and features more than enough to fill a day of thrills and excitement.
