Canada's Wonderland has confirmed that a new million dollar light and sound experience will debut at the park in Summer 2011, as part of its 30th anniversary celebrations.

Starlight Spectacular will see 300,000 LED lights added to International Street, while the park's central fountain will "dance" in up to 16 million colours. The show will also see animated effects and 3D images projected onto Wonder Mountain, transforming it into a "spectacular canvas of colours". It is due to run nightly at park closing time, from June 25 until Labour Day (September 5).

Similar shows have been installed at several other Cedar Fair theme parks, with versions also set to be added to Kings Dominion and Carowinds in 2011. However, the other versions have featured Snoopy branding, while Canada's Wonderland appears to be keeping the new addition distinct from its existing "Snoopy Rocks on Ice" show.

A video of the existing Snoopy's Starlight Spectacular display at Kings Island is embedded below:

Canada's Wonderland's major permanent new addition for the 2011 season will be WindSeeker, a vertigo-inducing variation on the classic "Chair-O-Plane" attraction. The ride will see guests reaching speeds of up to 30 miles per hour as they swing in circles around a 301-feet-tall tower, taking in panoramic views of the park and its surroundings.
