Canada's Wonderland Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I'll be heading back to the Wonderland in a few weeks...figured I'd ask here to see about recommendations for a place to stay nearby. IMO, I'm looking for an affordable place to just crash after a long day as I don't think a 5+ hr drive late night will be a good decision. No need for a fancy place like a 5* resort or Casino, just a nice comfy bed and possibly complementary breakfast would be ideal

 

 

The last few times we did end up trekking 5+ late night and it was just brutal.

^ Your best bet is something along Highway 7, east of 400, but it may cost ya Wonderland isn't the most accommodating park, unfortunately.

 

Thanks for the info...yeah I was noticing accommodations seem to be lacking!

The Wonderland website has a few accommodation links on it which aren't really in the "expensive" category.

 

Most of the options in Vaughan are the "Something by someone" line of hotel ie Hampton Inn by Hilton...which are all fairly reasonable and most have a breakfast included. You can also search some of the airport hotels...there are ALWAYS rate discounts on these, especially if you search on travelzoo. We are not talking too far in driving distance if you stay in these..and there is plenty of choice if you do so.

 

For me it would be in Vaughan (use the website links) or search around the airport.

Thanks! I did check the suggested ones in their website links and was shocked reading some of the reviews. I think the ones nearby the airport seem to be the best and just noticed that isn't too far of a drive. I think I'm all set thanks to a few replies.

I stayed at the Airport Comfort Inn up there, booked on priceline for about 65USD/night. Room was clean, hotel was quiet. I can't recall if there was a breakfast but there were plenty of options close by, namely Tim Horton's. I would recommend it if you're looking for something on the budget end and a bed to sleep in. Definitely no frills.

Anyone know what the 10th maze is for Halloween Haunt?

FEARVR extra charge, perhaps?

 

Fear VR will most likely be extra charge. Not sure if it will be available here anymore (Knotts shutting down their VR experience due to people complaining about the experience stigmatizing mental health)

 

Edit: Fear VR was removed from the Haunt Website this morning.

Every Cedar Fair site has a list like that but are they ever right? Usually every ride is open (at least during the day) minus maybe water rides but they only list the thrill rides or the rides that are open at night.

Nope, everything at Valleyfair is open for Haunt (With a few exceptions like the water rides, Excalibur, and maybe Ripcord). The Haunt sites are never fully accurate when it comes to rides.

 

I would just assume that the entire park is open unless Canada's Wonderland has some random dead ends with un-popular attractions that I'm not aware of.

At the park this Morning and it looks like riptide is either getting overhauled or just hauled outta there.

 

If you look closely you can see workers are inside the bearings on either side and look like they are cleaning the grease.

 

At first glance i thought they might be removing it to put the new ride there but seeing the workers inside it, it May just be repair.

 

The parts with the seats are in behind near the base of dragon fyre's lifthill.

It's good to know that there will be rides open while I'm at the park. Does anyone know where the new Soaring Timbers ride is supposed to go? Also, is Sledgehammer still going to be at the park next season or are they planning to take it out. That location looks like a good place to put the new ride.

 

I heard it's going where the mini-golf is by The Fly.

Planning my first visit to CW. Should I do a day and a half weekend at CW or a day at CW and a half day at Marineland? Honestly I'm pretty darn interested in Dragon Mountain. Next Sun is their last operating day.... Do they really mistreat animals?

Dragon Mountain is worth stopping by for. I saw nothing of concern as far as animal treatment goes when I last visited in 2014.
