    It is the largest and first national amusement park in Canada spanning around 330-acre of land in Vaughan, Ontario north of Toronto.Located just minutes north of Toronto off Highway 400. The park has several themed areas so its up to you which part you like. I went there during the opening in May and I never expect a very long line is waiting for me. The unlimited ride ticket cost me 64 dollars.They have lots of rides from kiddie ride, simple to the extreme. . I don't have time to try the roller coaster though coz of long line up. I tried some not so extreme rides though. The big man made waterfall is so amazing.
    This is really a perfect place for those who are traveling with their family or significant others but for a lone traveler it's not that fun at all. I just took some photos and am just curious about this amusement park how it looks like.
    You can take the bus Wonderland Express "GO" Buses that run regularly from Yorkdale and York Mills subway stations if you are coming from downtown Toronto. Take the subway station going to York Mills station.

    Canada's wonderland is like a family and friends event, usually held in summer and closed probably for winter. Theres a lot of attractions, rides, coasters, water park, and live shows. The Newest ride called the beheameth is supposebly the largest, highest, and longest also the scariest ! :O Theres all kinds of foods, games, shops, theaters, and basically you'll never get bored here. They have season passes instead of just paying about $39.00 everyday you go. Its a really big theme park so watch out for your friends and family.

    Toronto's Parkland of Wonder!

    At first, I thought this land of wonder is just for the kids and the young. It is not! While I did see that majority who enjoyed the rides are the 'young ones', there are also 'young once' who likes just sitting, watching people around, or just having fun at the Kingswood Theatre. Yes, it was Filipino Day at the Wonderland when we visited the parkland. We enjoyed their incredible show. It was a show of shows with all those Philippine theme. It does not happen everyday anyways.

    The Paramount Canada's Wonderland is North America's greatest variety of roller coasters, and Splash Works. There is no doubt about that. It has too many attractions, maybe more than 200 hundred and approximately 50 to 60 rides. I am not going to go into detail on what attractions and rides you are going to enjoy, but all I can say is that if you visit Canada, you don't have to miss such a beautiful real wonder. It's more Fun for You and your family.

    You will be happy to know that it is accessible to public transportation:
    *'Go' buses run regularly from Yorkdale and York Mills subway stations throughout the day and evening through closing.
    *York Region Transit (YRT) buses# 165a, 4, 20, and the Wonderbus (this is an express route, that operates weekends and holidays throughout the summer months).

    For complete information on what else you should know about Paramount Canada's Wonderland, feel free to check the website I provided below. You will see more pictures of the theme park on their website.

    Yummy!!

    A great day out! This park features more than 60 thrilling rides and over 200 attractions. Don't forget to watch the man-made erupting volcano at night.

    The best time to visit is off peak season when you don't have to encounter too much crowd or queuing.

    Also, when you're here, you HAVE to try Funnel Cake :)

    GREAT day out for all the family. LOADS of REALLY scarey rides.
    Nice clean park.
    We took a taxi there a back so can't advise about buses. Taxi was not to expensive and was really easy!
    Canada's Wonderland is F-U-N! The 100-acre park offers plenty of adventures, including Ferris wheels, roller coasters, entertainment shows and a water park. Don't miss the special effects extravaganzas, either. The amusement park is beautifully landscaped with lagoons, picnic areas, water park, shows, thrill rides, playgrounds and restaurants. Other attractions include go-carts, open-air concerts, mini-golf, and interactive media games.

    Canada's Wonderland - Wonder Mountain (2005)
    4 more images

    Canada's Wonderland is, in my opinion, a mere shadow of its former self. What used to be an incredibly clean family-oriented theme park (opened in 1981) has become a slightly grotty teen hangout with emphasis primarily on splash and thrill rides. To its credit, Wonderland has the third greatest number of rollercoatsers in North America.
    Check out the following rides: "Italian Job", "The Drop Zone", "The Bat", and a small kid's ride called "The Ghoster Coaster".
    Early goers to the park will remember such things as "Yogi's/Smurf Forest", walking to the top of "Wonder Mountain", and "International Street" (which sold items from around the world). There also used to be live performances on stages around the grounds, where parents could sit and watch a corny musical while the kids did the rides. These features no longer exist. It's all been replaced by more rides. Pirate ships that used to sit in the pond area have been converted into a diving platform. The only performance I witnessed during my last visit was a diving show.
    Teenagers absolutely love Wonderland. They roam in wild packs making googly eyes at groups of the opposite sex. Tweens think they've died and gone to heaven. Hormones are the new fuel that keep this place going year-after-year. However, I would say that parents with children under the age of 10 would have more fun taking the kids to Ontario Place and the CNE for the day... or even Centre Island.
    I don't know whether it was because it was the end of summer of if it's normal, but the park was dirty--garbage on the ground, tables that needed to be wiped, sidewalks that needed to be cleaned. Food vendors didn't open until around noon and the selection was limited--most vendors had the exact same things. There wasn't a single AA battery in any of the stores, and that sucked because my digital batteries were dead.
    I was happy to eat a funnel-cake though, at least they still have those! The toppings had depleted from about 10 (when I was a kid) to 2. Sigh... just not what it used to be.

    The last time I went there was when I was around 9 or 10, but I remember it well. It's a huge amusement park with all sorts of rides and fun stuff, and different sections of the park have different themes. It's grown a lot since I last went, but I remember thinking it was the funnest place ever.

    There are rides and games for all ages. There are kiddie rides for the little ones, and I even remember seeing two smurfs walking around entertaining the kids. There is also a water park which is great for cooling down if the day is hot. There are the standard carnival rides like a carousel, and also extreme stuff like roller-coasters.

    PARAMOUNT CANADA'S WONDERLAND

    by hayward68 Updated Jun 8, 2005

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is an amusement park with more than 60 excellent rides, theatre shows and a great water park. Bring along a bathing suit, there are change rooms and lockers. A change of clothes might be needed depending on how wet you get on some rides. Comfortable shoes are a must.
    Some of the newest rides include the Italian Job and Tomb Raider:The Ride, pack the anti-nauseant ;-)
    Check out who's playing at Kingswood Theatre while you're there, it could be a band you've always wanted to see! There are free concerts in one area of the park as well.
    A regular Pay-One-Price admission ticket at the gate is $51.99 but you can buy cheaper tickets at Shoppers Drug Mart or online. Online the price for this ticket is $37.44 (I'm assuming it's the same ticket though it doesn't explicity say it's Pay-One etc) Check the website.
    Parking is $7.50 per day per car/vehicle.
    Bring your own food to save money. You can return to you vehicle to eat and then go back inside Wonderland.

  • Canadas Wonderland

    by klubkidd80 Written May 3, 2005

    The best way to spend a Saturday or Sunday in the summer. Canadas wonderland is a huge amusement park in the GTA (greater Toronto area). If you are staying downtown you can catch a GOBus there and back from one of the major subway stops or the bus depot. There are many rollercoasters and games and a water park as well. Its a nice way to enjoy the day, but be forewarned, the prices on the parkgrounds are really high!

    The rides and roller-coasters are awsome! Avoid going in the peak of summer or weekends as the park is crowded and the wait for most rides feels like hours. Make sure to go on "The Bat" and "Drop Zone", they're great if you're looking for an adrenaline rush.
