Canada's Wonderland is a 330-acre (130 ha) theme park located in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada, a suburb directly north of Toronto. It was originally opened and operated by the Taft Broadcasting Company and The Great-West Life Assurance Company in 1981, then owned by Paramount Parks from 1994 to 2006 when it was known as Paramount Canada's Wonderland. Since 2006 the park is owned and operated by Cedar Fair. It is the first major theme park in Canada and remains the country's largest.
Canada's Wonderland is open daily from May to September, and then only on weekends until the beginning of November. The park has 16 roller coasters — more than any other park outside of the United States – and tied with Cedar Point for the second-most in the world. It also features a 20-acre (81,000 m2) water park called Splash Works and its fall season includes Halloween Haunt, a Halloween-themed event featuring haunted attractions in areas throughout the park. – less
