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.
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!
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!
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!
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!!
