Since I was a child, the highlight of every summer was making a trip (or several) to Canada’s Wonderland. As a teenager, my friends and I would be dropped off in the morning, and be picked up at the park’s closing.
Now that I have kids of my own, the tradition continues! This year, my son is old enough to be dropped off to spend the day with his friends at Canada’s Wonderland!
This year, Canada’s Wonderland has an exciting new ride that will make you scream. Either you’ll love it or fear it – the Yukon Striker. It’s the longest, tallest and fastest dive roller coaster in the world! The ride features a 90-degree drop into an underwater tunnel, and a 360-degree loop, the first ever for a dive coaster.
Season passes are a must for us as we will spontaneously decide to hop in the car head over to Canada’s Wonderland for a few hours in the morning until lunchtime, or after dinner, until the park closes.
If you want to get the full benefits of a Season Pass, act now before prices go up May 20th! You’ll enjoy an amazing lineup of events all season, including Celebration Canada, KidZfest, Ultimate Thrills Circus, fireworks every long weekend and the park’s annual Taste Festivals.
The New GOLD Passes
Also new this year are the brand-new GOLD pass which gives you all the benefits of the regular season pass, plus unlimited visits to Halloween Haunt and WinterFest. Halloween Haunt will be open late September to Halloween at night and Camp Spooky for the littles will be open during the day. WinterFest is the park’s new immersive holiday event and will be open late November through Christmas!
A season pass gets you great perks like discounts on food and merchandise, access to VIP events, early ride times, bring-a-friend discounts and more.
Splash Works – the 20-acre water park – opens May 25.
Also returning July 22 to August 5 is KidZfest, a special celebration just for kids with live entertainment, foam pits, dance parties and appearances by your favourite TV characters, including MARVEL Superheroes! It’s included with admission (or your season pass), just like all our other events
