I took my 3 kids to Toronto centre Island this week. It has been years since we went, and thought that it would be nice to go down memory lane. What we got is old, tired and lame. The ferry boat is still nice and a good way to see the harbour, and the island itself is well maintained and has nice gardens, so if you are going on a picnic then this is fine. The big rip off here is the main attraction of centre ville. Poorly maintained - old decrepit rides - poor staffing - poor maintenance- poor food - BIG price. There was not one good thing any of us could think of here - its like a very run down, cheap version of a bad carny show, with rides averaging about $4-5 each. All my kids thought that the rides were horrible and dated. A pizza for lunch was $30. The maintenance was horrible - everything needed a paint job and cleaning. The staff of mainly teen-angers all looked bored and rude.
Don't waste your time here - go to Wonderland or the CNE. Unless there is a complete overhaul, this place should be closed down or condemned soon. Yet another Canadian icon that has been forgotton and left to rot, because of poor managment and money.
