Today we went to Canada’s Wonderland. The girls had wanted to go there last year, but they came in April and it was not open, so we wanted to make sure we went this time. Again it was very hot, we we had to pack plenty of sun cream.
We managed to park very easily, close to the entrance and got into the park quickly. The first stop was the brand new coaster called Leviathan. It was huge, some 300 feet high with a very steep drop. Chris and Amy decided to go on it and they stood in line for about 45 minutes before actually getting on the ride which then took 3 minutes. When they got off they said it was fantastic.
Sadly Stacey and I were too chicken, but whilst they were on that ride we decided to go on the Wild Beast, a wooden coaster. We did not have to wait and boarded pretty much straight away. The ride is very harsh and throws you about a lot. If you have any back or neck issues, do not go on this ride. I ended up with several bruises on my legs and arms from this ride. It was fun though.
We wandered round the park and joined lines as we wanted. We did not have to wait for many rides, in fact most of them we got on straight away. Between us we also went on the The Fly, Thunder Run, Flight Deck, Time Warp, Backlot Stunt, Dodgems and some others I cannot remember.
We also went on the White Water Canyon which is a river ride on a big ring. We though we had gotten away without getting too wet when at the end Chris and I ended up under a waterfall and got soaked with freezing cold water. Fortunately it was a hot day, so we soon dried off.
We also paid the extra few dollars to go to the Dinosaur Alive exhibit. There are lots of animated dinosaurs that are life size and move their bodies and also includes a 3D movie.
We also wanted to go on the go carts but found that we had to pay an additional $12 each, so declined. I thought this a bit extortionate after paying the entrance fee. Stacey also played on the many arcade type stalls dotted around the park. She is a wiz at these and won several prizes as did Amy.
All in all we had a great time. We chose a great day to go and didn’t have to wait in line for any ride other than Leviathan.
After a long day we drove home and had another early night.
