Canada’s Wonderland #Review

Ontario Attractions - Canada's Wonderland

Ontario Attractions - Canada's Wonderland

Year after year we purchase season’s passes to Canada’s Wonderland!  Why?   Because we find that the value of family fun from getting them is so worth it!  This year is no different.  Each year, Canada’s Wonderland adds new attractions, changes up the shows and keeps the “old favourites” maintained so we can continue to enjoy them.

Wonder Mountain's Guardian

This year the kids were excited to try out the new Wonder Mountain’s Guardian.  If you head there as soon as the park opens, the line to get on shouldn’t be too bad.  We waited about 30 minutes but the time seemed to fly by because while you wait you can read up on facts about the ride and try out some trivia.  Being the competitive family we are, we could have stayed in the line-up area for hours!

Canada's Wonderland    Canada's Wonderland

Although our anticipation to try out this new ride was at an all time high, we didn’t ask anyone we knew about it as we wanted it to be a surprise.  3D glasses on and we were ready to goooo….

During the ride you are taken into the caverns of the mountain where your gaming skills and competitive side are put to the challenge when you  try to shoot bats,  spiders, crabs and sea monsters in the quest to have the highest score.  In the end, the ultimate battle takes place in the dragon’s lair where you take on the dragon Ormaar.  Will you be victorious or have to escape?  Will you be the top scorer in your cart?  Good luck and oh by the way you will love the final surprise at the end!  😉

My kids gave Wonder Mountain’s Guardian 2 thumbs up with a rating of AWESOME!

Ontario Attractions - Canadas Wonderland

We love Wonderland because it is great for people of all ages as they have different areas of the park designated to different age groups.

Planet Snoopy & Kidzville are geared to the younger ones with smaller versions of some of the bigger rides like the swinging boat, swings, roller coasters, carousel and spinning barrels.  The kids can even meet up with the beloved Peanuts characters for a meet and greet and picture.

The rest of the park is filled with all different variations of coasters, spinning rides, stomach droppers and unique rides that are sure to suit all the thrill seekers in your family.  

As our kids grow taller, I am so excited to get to try new rides with them each year.  It’s like a new adventure with each new season!

 Ontario Attractions - Canada's Wonderland

You can’t miss the shows at Wonderland.  From the High divers and trampoline acrobatics to the musical invasion and cirque experience, you will be dazzled!  We look forward to the shows every year and have always been highly entertained.

Ontario Attractions - Canada's Wonderland
Be sure to cool off in Splash Works at some point during your visit.  This 20-acre waterpark has lots of water slides, splash pads, a lazy river, wave pool and more to keep you cool while you’re having fun.

All this fun making you hungry?

Canada’s Wonderland has a good selection of food to choose from but if you are being budget conscience you are always welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy on the grounds outside the admission gates.  To accommodate this, in and out privileges are happily granted with just a stamp on your hand before you exit.

Oh and one of my biggest moments of excitement so far this year was discovering that there is now a full service Tim Horton’s onsite!!!

If you haven’t been to Canada’s Wonderland before or just need something super fun to do one day, our entire family says that Canada’s Wonderland is a sure bet for family fun!!

How to save on visits to Canada’s Wonderland

Buy your ticket online 3 days in advance and only pat $39.99 (that’s $20 off the regular price)

Run away with the Circus for the Night

923471_548601248524819_626289451_n

Look up….look wayyyy up!  Yep, that’s the Big Top which means the Shrine Circus is in town!!

We were invited to attend the opening night of the circus last weekend and of course we were thrilled and to say the kids were super excited would have been an understatement.  From the moment we could see the Big Top in the distance, the kids didn’t stop smiling!

Before the show started we were given a special behind the scenes tour of the Big Top and to see the animals getting all prepped for their big performances.  Now I know most of us wouldn’t want an audience when we’re having our shower but thankfully the elephant didn’t mind us watching him get his spray down before the show. It was the coolest thing to watch as the elephant completely cooperated during the process and even helped out by lifting his foot to be washed.  It was so cute to watch the elephant interact with the circus employees as he would playfully poke them with his trunk. We also got to watch the tigers (from afar) resting up for the show and the horses looking beautiful.  The best part of the behind the scenes look was to hear about how well all the animals are cared for.

Ringmaster Richard Curtis

Once we grabbed our hot dogs, snow cones and caramel corn and took our seats we were greeted in song by the charismatic Ringmaster, Richard Curtis.  Richard was an awesome ringmaster that kept the crowd engaged with his booming voice, good looks (for the ladies) and all around enthusiasm.  You could tell he loves his job!

Tigers, Trapeze and Elephants…Oh My! 

Here we gooooo! Now I don’t want to give away the entire show as I feel you need to experience this amazement for yourself but i’ll give you a little peek into some  of what you can expect under the Big Top through pictures!  Get ready for amazing animals, feet juggling, heart stopping stunts and SO much more.  Watching these performers you will be dazzled by their strength, courage, love for the Circus and the overwhelming feeling of family!
