Canada’s Wonderland is Canada’s largest theme park that has been thrilling families for 35 years. In the beginning visitors could face their fears on big wooden roller coasters and other exciting rides in the parks. Over the years the park has expanded to include a huge water park, children’s areas and more thrilling rides like the Leviathan, one of the tallest roller coasters in the world.

Throughout the years, Canada’s Wonderland has continually offered fabulous entertainment like the diving shows and the fireworks, as well as fun Peanuts shows for the kids. The Stars of the Peking Acrobats are fabulous, as are Craz-E-Crew Stunt Team. The Illumination of Water is a show you don’t want to miss in the evenings at the fountain shown below.
