Are you interested in learning more about Canada’s premier amusement parks? Regardless of whether you are in Toronto or Ottawa, you have a range of alternatives from which to pick in order to have fun. So, which of them should you not miss? We have developed a list of the most fascinating Canadian amusement parks that you must visit at some time.
Canada’s Wonderland is not only the largest amusement park in the nation, but also one of the parks with the highest number of visitors in all of North America. The park has more than 132 hectares. The amusement park has around 200 attractions, 69 rides, and 15 roller coasters, all of which are accessible to guests. Moreover, if the temperature is unbearable, the 20-acre Splash Works waterpark may provide an escape from the oppressive heat. Are you an adrenaline seeker? There is consensus that Leviathan is one of the scariest roller coasters in Canada, but you are willing to ride it. It is the nation’s tallest building at 306 feet and was constructed in the least amount of time (nearly 80 miles per hour). Skyhawk and Flying Eagles were added to Canada’s Wonderland in 2016 as not one, but two brand-new attractions. Both of these attractions at the amusement park take visitors to new heights. At an altitude of 135 feet while rotating in a full circle, Skyhawk pilots are in command of their own cockpits. Flying Eagles is a Disney World attraction geared towards younger children. It features an aircraft that can reach a height of 28 feet and can accommodate two people. These aircraft are piloted by younger children who also act as pilots; they control both the flying and the riding experience.
Galaxyland, situated in West Edmonton Mall, is the biggest indoor amusement park in the world, with over 27 thrilling rides, attractions, and play spaces for children of all ages. The space-themed amusement park features Mindbender, the world’s biggest indoor triple-loop roller coaster, and a four-story indoor jungle gym. Everyone is welcome to participate in skee-ball and other arcade games. Whether your family is a model of cooperation or competition reigns supreme, the new Lazer Vault challenges everyone’s coordination and competitive spirit. Galaxyland, which opened in 1985, is recognized as one of Canada’s premier amusement parks and has received a number of honors from guests. Additionally, the park is open 365 days a year.
In eastern Canada, the 146-acre La Ronde amusement park in Montreal is the largest of its type. It is situated on the southwest corner of Saint Helen’s Island, close to the old port of the city. Six Flags is an amusement park with over 40 rides and attractions, the most exciting of which are its 10 roller coasters. Even tourists to amusement parks who take pride in their courage may feel vertigo after riding Canada’s tallest and fastest roller coaster, Goliath, at La Ronde. The Boomerang is another stomach-churning rollercoaster that takes riders through three high-speed loops before returning them back to the starting point via a boomerang. Alternately, you may choose the Cobra, which would satisfy your demand for speed. The Galopant, the world’s oldest wooden carousel, was built in 1885 and is one of the many family-friendly things to do in the park.
Playland Amusement Park
The Playland Amusement Park has been situated just east of downtown Vancouver since 1910, making it the oldest amusement park in Canada. On the premises of the Pacific National Exhibition sits the park (PNE). In the latter week of August and the beginning of September, the PNE hosts its annual fair, which fills the park with thrill-seeking revelers. The amusement park is a veritable treasure trove of rides, midway games, a haunted house, and an arcade, so there are several activities for guests to enjoy. Thrill seekers should take a ride on the Hellevator, which sends people up a 202-foot-tall tower and then lets them free-fall back down.
Fallsview Indoor Waterpark
Because it is located just a two-minute walk away from the natural marvel, the Fallsview Indoor Waterpark lives up to its name by being the ideal place to stop on your visit to Niagara Falls. The attraction was ranked as both the best amusement park and the best waterpark in Canada on Trip Advisor in the past, and it boasts the distinction of being Canada’s biggest indoor waterpark as well. There are a total of sixteen exhilarating water slides, including body slides, mat slides, toob towers, and plunges.
