“Amazing!”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

I go here every year with my boyfriend and last year with some friends and him! this coming year we have already bought season passes which are a great value if you plan on going lots! Some rides do have long line ups but they usually go by pretty fast! Also I found there is lots of great customer service! The only down fall to it I would say is food cost but if you get there early, park close, bring a cooler with food and you will be set! Cannot wait to go back for the 2014 season!

“Speed pass is expensive, but worth it”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

The speed pass is an expensive addition after paying for regular admission, but we were able to complete the entire park in only 2 hours. We spent the next 30 minutes repeat riding the Leviathan. I would recommend going to the park on a overcast day with a small potential for rain - ideally on a Wed or Thursday to minimize the crowds. Be aware that they will lock down all the roller coasters if there is a potential of lightning (even if the sky is clear).

“Great family fun!”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

Not sure why there are negative reviews of this park... it's awesome! The thrill rides are great and the coasters are spectacular! I'm sure the weekends get really busy and line ups can be a pain, so plan to go during the week day... and go early. We did 2 days, first day we arrived late morning to ample crowds but still had fun. Second day we went 1/2 hour before the gates opened, turned left inside the park, and went to ride the Behemoth (2nd largest roller coaster in the park) 4 times in 20 minutes while everybody else turned right to line up for the Leviathan. Then worked our way back through the rest of the park. Line up for the Leviathan was usually around 45-60 min wait, but quite frankly worth it. Yes the food is expensive here, it is at all theme parks, Canada's Wonderland is no different. As a good comparison, we've taken our kids to Disney World twice (all the different Disney theme parks) and hands down this beat Disney from a value perspective. Universal Studios and Busch Gardens would be good comparisons. All in all we really enjoyed this park. Highly recommended!

“Great way to spend a day with family or friends.”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

I probably visited Wonderland twice during my stay in Toronto as an international student. The park had everything you would expect an amusement park to have: rides (duh), restaurants, washrooms, water parks, etc. The most thrilling ride I ever went on was the Behemoth. I immediately regretted it once we had gotten to the top. You could see probably 50 miles away.

Anyway, awesome place to spend a day with family, friends or a date.

Last visit was sometime in 2012 or 2011.
