Formerly known as "Paramount Canada's Wonderland," Paramount sold the park in 2006. It is now known simply as "Canada's Wonderland."
Canada's Wonderland is Canada's largest and most popular theme park. In fact, it frequently boasts the highest attendance of any seasonal park in North America. Coasters are the park's main draw, and its impressive arsenal of thrill machines -- one of the largest in the world -- includes nearly every kind: flying, magnetic launched, suspended, wood, and inverted looping to name a few.
The Peanuts gang, including Snoopy and Charlie Brown, meet and greet children in the park and provide inspiration for some of the rides. The park offers plenty of shows as well, including stunt spectaculars and musicals.
The adjacent 20-acre Splash Works water park is included with admission and offers slides, a wave pool, interactive water play station, and a lazy river. Among the featured attractions is Barracuda Blaster, a funnel ride.
