Canada’s Wonderland at Vaughan, Ontario has been in operation since 1981. It is known as Canada’s first major theme park and the largest in the country. The park features over 21 thrill rides and 16 of them are rollercoasters. Top three favorite coasters are the Behemoth, the Flight Deck and the Backlot Stunt Coaster. Other favorites are the Mighty Canadian Minebuster and Canada’s first inverted coaster, the Flight Deck.
Just this year, the park unleashed Leviathan which is described as the seventh tallest and eighth fastest coaster in the world. The coaster turns 180 degrees to the right, goes uphill and drops back at around 92 miles per hour and a few more turns. There is really so much thrill and a cycle just lasts for under 4 minutes.
Aside from the coasters, the park has other thrill rides such as the Riptide, the Windseeker and the Psyclone. There are 11 milder rides for the family to enjoy such as carousels, train rides and the Swan Lake and there is Planet Snoopy that features 22 rides just for kids.
