Canada's Wonderland covers a 330-acre plot in Vaughan, within easy reach of Toronto. It is home to a huge number of attractions spread across lightly-themed lands, including a total of sixteen roller coasters. While thrill rides are very much top of the agenda, the park is also home to two sprawling areas dedicated to children, Planet Snoopy and KidZville. The entry ticket also includes the Splash Zone water park with more than 15 water attractions.

History: After almost a decade of planning, Canada's Wonderland finally opened to the public in May 1981. The park was acquired by Paramount Parks in 1994, becoming Paramount Canada's Wonderland, before that chain was itself acquired by Cedar Fair in 2006. Recent years have seen heavy investment in major roller coasters, including the 230-feet-tall Behemoth and the 306-feet-tall Leviathan.
