Canada's Wonderland, situated 30 kilometers north of
downtown Toronto, opened in 1981. The park sits on a 380-acre plot and 300 acres
are filled with over 200 attractions and 65 rides. Splash
Works opened in 1992, hosting Canada's largest wave-pool and other water rides.
In 1993, the park was acquired by Paramount Communications, Inc., became part of
its Paramount Parks division, and changed its name to Paramount Canada's
Wonderland. Cedar Fair bought all five Paramount Parks in 2006 for $1.24
billion in cash, and the park dropped the Paramount name in 2007. Wonder
Mountain, a man-made mountain built with 5 million pounds of sand and cement,
sits as a prominent feature in the middle of the park.
Only one coaster has left the park, SkyRider was removed in 2014 and relocated to Italy. In 2019, Yukon Striker opened, and
is the worlds tallest, fastest, and longest Dive Coaster. It features floorless trains, an underwater tunnel, and was built by
Bolliger & Mabillard.
