Description

from Canada's Wonderland
Canada’s Wonderland is home to more than 70 rides, including 17 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 the world’s tallest, fastest and longest dive roller coaster, Yukon Striker, as well as Canada’s tallest and fastest coaster – Leviathan.

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.

Lots of rides. Yukon Striker is the newest, goes 130kms. I didn’t ride but teenagers did and enjoyed it. Leviathan kicked my butt!! Kids ages 13 & 15 were able to ride all the big rides and met the height requirements. The seats on the old wooden coasters are very small!! We saw a few new rides since our last visit. Our kids went on slingshot which is the craziest thing I’ve ever seen but they loved it. $25/person (cost above ticket price.) the “fast pass & fast pass plus” options are getting ridiculous. The prices of everything went up. Cost $10 to play for the sport games. Bottled water costs $4.50 each. Thank goodness you can bring in your own water. They have “smoking spots” but people were vaping/smoking and using marijuana wherever they wanted and no security did anything about it. Clearly the advanced security at the door is overwhelmed because the volume of people is so high and drugs are still getting in. The park was very clean. I’ve been going since childhood and the cleanliness was probably the best I e ever seen it including the bathrooms. There are very good food booths and we were pleased to see a healthy option with fresh salads and produce. The staff were all very friendly. They offer quality clothing and gifts but cost very high (but similar to other amusement parks.) Funnel cakes and Pizza Pizza were delicious. We loved that there were attire requirements especially in the water park area!! We watched the dirt bikes in the globe/contortionist sisters/human cannonball and the best Pratt of the show was Roger!! Best ride of the day for us was flight deck (old top gun) and the white water canyon. I don’t want to spoil the show by revealing details but definitely a great show. The Tim Horton’s beside the mountain was incredibly packed and the young men were too busy flirting with the girls to serve coffee, after waiting 45 mins for a coffee they told me they were out of cream. I complained about the service and how that should be posted as to not waste the time of the people in line. They didn’t care at all and I was treated like a joke. Who cares about my complaint when there’s 100 people behind me going to experience the same thing and buy something anyway just like I had to get a coffee without cream. We got discount tickets for entry at CAA and that helped a lot with the cost so our family could afford to go. They offer preferred parking now-another money grab like the fast pass and fast pass plus. I would recommend the purchase of the refillable drink. It’s definitely worth it. We would go again but not for a couple years.

"Day trip with son!"

Reviewed July 17, 2019 NEW
I have a seasons pass with my kids, a 13-yr girl and 9-year-old boy. My girl did not want to go with us yesterday to Wonderland, so my son and I spent the day together. We had a fantastic time! We went on about 15 rides and were there from 1 pm to 8:30 pm. The only criticism I can say is that I wish the general food prices were a bit more reasonable. Otherwise, we had a great day! I’d give 5 stars if they offered less expensive food and if the food was better made. We had a foot long hot dog, the meat was all dried up and we paid about $10 for it even with the season’s pass discount. The icee drink was expensive also (almost $6). Dippin dots ice cream kid size was over $6!! Another issue was that everyone in ALL sitting areas were smoking and it was making us feel sick. If they reduce their food prices and handle/monitor the smoking situation better, or make the park a smoke-free zone, I’d give a 5-star rating!! Thanks!!

"Bad start to the day"

Firstly, arrived to be funneled into the pay parking area, even though I was just doing a passenger drop off. Signage and design of roads is TERRIBLE, so you are funneled to a pay booth and then told you HAVE to pay, or back out against 100 cars coming in, and go in reverse on a one way road to a stoplight. Then you have to do a U turn on a 4 lane road, and arrive at a massively over congested drop off zone which is way too small for the volume of traffic. The whole entry approach and design needs to be re-thought. We booked tickets for our kids and a caregiver with fastpass ($420 for 3 people ...bit of a rip off), and then they are told that our tickets are flagged because we dont have the VISA card of the purchaser on hand (there is NO indication of this when you buy the tickets). They have the tickets and the email confirmation all printed out on paper. So they are escorted to security and have to make a bunch of phone calls to sort it out. So after wasting at least a half hour with all this nonsense, they finally get in the park. They find out that the $90 extra dollars for the fastpass doesn't count at the water park so they are in huge lineups there. Food is WAY too expensive and crappy. Signage to the water park is bad so it takes a long time to find it. Overall, the kids had fun on the rides, but this could have been a much better experience. The final analysis is that this is way overpriced and there are too many other cash grabs, which just leaves you with a negative feeling about the whole place.

"Canada’s Wonderland meal plan a waste of money"

Don’t buy the meal plan. A waste of money, limited vendors, horrible food especially Manchu Wok. Cheaper to pay as you go unless you are a glutton. Stepson got food from one vendor & when we saw it we went there. Different cashier and we were told that that item is not on the plan. No consistency in their operation. No beverages included. Save your money!

After a long time being in a theme park and it was amazing. Great park. Enjoyed most of the rides. The new ride...”Yukon Striker” is worth going in even though I thought that my life was over hahahah. Don’t forget to bring your bathing suit because the waterpark is a great place to relax when it’s too hot. Be aware the food is expensive in the park.

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.
