Theme Parks in Canada

By Carlo Cretaro, January 12, 2012

The most popular and largest theme park to add to your Canada Holidays itinerary is Canada’s Wonderland, located in Toronto. With over 200 rides, 15 roller coasters and a water park, it’s not hard to see why. It is the home of Canada’s tallest and fastest roller coaster, the Behemoth. On this amazing coaster you will ascend 230 feet and drop at a heart stopping 75 degree angle reaching speeds of up to 125km/h. Flight Deck is an inverted looping jet coaster that will send you soaring at 90km/h while you flip, roll and loop.

One of the newer rides is Windseeker. With a whole new twist on swings, this awesome ride will take you up 30 stories and give you an amazing view of the park while you spin at 50km/h. A 230 foot tall drop tower will raise you up and drop you at 100km/h for the thrill of a lifetime.

There are some fantastic family rides, such as the Speed City Raceway and Silver Streak, a junior inverted coaster. For some wet adventure, check out White Water Canyon where you will ride the rapids, or Timberwolf Falls where you will splash down for an thrilling finish to your ride.

Prices for the park are $55.57 for adults and $32.17 for children and seniors.

Other theme parks in Canada include La Ronde in Quebec, and Playland amusement park in Vancouver. Canada’s largest water park is Magic Mountain in New Brunswick. With eight water slides, pools, a lazy river and a giant hot tub, you can have splashing fun all day long.
