Canada's Wonderland, Vaughan
Canada's Wonderland, located in Vaughan, Ontario, a suburb approximately 40 kilometers north of downtown Toronto, is Canada's first and largest theme park featuring over 200 attractions, 68 thrilling rides, North America's greatest variety of roller coasters, Splash Works, a 20-acre water park, and live shows.
At 306 feet (93.27 m) in the air, Leviathan is the tallest ride in the park, dropping riders at an intense 80 degree angle. Across the way, Behemoth has eight extreme drops, open air seating, high speed twists, turns and loops. The daring may want to be lifted 23 stories high and then dropped at 100 kilometers per hour aboard Drop Tower. Not to be outdone are Vortex, Canada's first suspended roller coaster, an intense corkscrew design in The Bat, Skyrider's shark curves and side-winding helix (standing up of course), Dragon Fire's two 360-degree loops, the trek through Wonder Mountain aboard Thunder Run, Windseeker, a 301 foot swing ride, and let's not forget the coaster that lives up to its name, The Mighty Canadian Minebuster, the largest and longest wooden coaster in Canada.
Families can visit Planet Snoopy, where the entire Peanuts gang welcomes children of all ages to take a ride on Sally's Loveboat, race the Peanut's 500 track or take a ride upon Woodstock Whirlybirds.
KidZville features numerous attractions including Taxi Jam, a roller coaster parents and kids can ride together, and Chopper Chase, a monorail ride. Catch planes, trains and rocket ships in Zoom Zone, where the sky's the limit aboard Jumpin' Jet, while Silver Streak, Canada's first junior inverted coaster with a helix will delight young thrill seekers who will dive, wind and swoop through its suspended, zigzagged track. If there's more left in you, be sure to check out Splash Works, White Water Canyon Area and Action Theater.
The Typhoon water slide, the newest waterside to Canada's wonderland's collection, Splash Station as part of the Water Park and SlingShot; launch over 300 feet in the air at 100 km/h.
