Day 9: ONTARIO TRAVEL SERIES #02 Canada’s Wonderland Park
This is an excerpt from my other post: “Let’s go to a theme park located in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada, a suburb directly north of Toronto and visit Paramount Canada’s Wonderland Recreational Park. On the 23rd of May in 1981, Ontario Premier Bill Davis and the Taft Broadcasting President Dudley Taft, officially opened Canada’s Wonderland to the public. The opening ceremony was spectacular.”
The Wonder Mountain
“It is the first major theme park in Canada and remains the country’s largest so far. In 1983, Canada’s Wonderland added the Kingswood Music Theatre, a 15,000 seat amphitheatre that has hosted many popular musicians and singers in concerts. The designers of this park chose to build a massive mountain, known as the Wonder Mountain, and it is situated at the top of the International Street. Wonder Mountain featured a huge cascading waterfalls and interior pathways were built which led visitors to a look-out point at the mountain top.”

When you travel to Toronto, there’s lots of things to do in the city and nearby municipalities like Vaughan where this park is located. There are hotels near the area if you want to stay nearby. There’s also buses that travel from downtown Toronto and other cities that go directly to the park’s bus depot which is near the park’s entrance where you can purchase your tickets of admission for the day. Have fun and enjoy the different roller coaster rides and great treats at the park.
