Canada’s Wonderland

About a month ago (when it was still summer), we went to Canada’s Wonderland – an amusement park – to get some adrenaline rush and have a wild ride (literally) in the numerous roller coasters there. Here are some pictures that will hopefully make you jealous.

Flightdeck: Speeds of 90km/h, exhilarating 90-degree vertical climbs, barrel rolls, inverted wing loopovers, a 270-degree after burn and a complete snap roll over. Highlight: You are in a chair that is suspended from the top.

Mighty Canadian Minebuster: Longest wooden rollercoaster. Speed over 90km/hr and over 1.2km of track. Highlight: I love wooden rides for their clittery-clack sounds and jerks.

Sky Rider. Highlight: You are standing up.

Some time to cool off!

The Behemoth: Canada’s biggest and fastest. It takes you up 70m and then sends you speeding down at a 75 degree angle of descent with speeds reaching 125km/hour! Highlight: Open air seating: there is virtually nothing substiantial to hold on to

Water rides: Since it was a beautiful day, this area was too crowded.
Psyclone: Gravity defying hang time on the most powerful pendulum on the planet! It will swing 120-feet in the air, while spinning on a giant, sky teasing disc. Highlight: Your body swinging and spinning (two forces).

Dragonfly: Two 360-deg loops, helix and corkscrew on a wooden roller coaster.

Shockwave: Twisted force and spinning power, boosts riders 70-feet in the air, while rotating and looping 360-degrees! Immense speed, immense force. Highlight: Your body spinning and rotating on 3 axes – complete confusion guaranteed.

Some classic stuff

There were many more rides that I couldn’t photograph. Overall the day was great and we did most of the high-thrill rides and a couple of kiddie rides. πŸ™‚ The last time I was in an amusement park was about 15 years ago, at Esselworld in Mumbai.

Information:

Canada’s Wonderland is accessible by public transit and takes only an hour from downtown: Take a GO bus from Yorkdale or Yorkmills subway station on Yellow line. Alternatively, YRT bus #20 serves this area but it will take ages to reach. By car, the wonderland is about 40km from downtown, off Hwy 400N.

Tickets for adults cost $53.
