Wonderland Celebrates 30th Birthday with Two New Major Attractions!

WindSeeker, Starlight Spectacular and a new line up of live shows highlight the season

VAUGHAN, ON, May 4 /CNW/ - Canada's Wonderland is preparing for its 30th birthday celebration this season with two new major attractions; WindSeeker and Starlight Spectacular! In addition to the new attractions, Wonderland is offering a special price on tickets for Opening Day to commemorate 30 years of memorable thrills.  On Sunday May 8, 2011, all tickets will be just $30 (plus HST).

WindSeeker, a 301 foot (91.7M) thrill ride is the Park's newest addition.  Riders will soar in 32 two-person swings that will provide a gravity defying thrill as their feet dangle high over Canada's Wonderland.   Spinning at dizzying speeds of up to 50 kilometers per hour, and towering 70 feet (21.3M) above Behemoth and Drop Tower, WindSeeker is changing the landscape of thrills for guests this season.

Starlight Spectacular will be unveiled on Saturday, June 25, 2011.  This innovative show will dazzle the senses when the fountain dances in up to 16,000,000 colours and International Street glitters with 300,000 LED lights.  The highlight of the show is an unprecedented display of animated effects and 3D images, which will transform Wonder Mountain in a spectacular canvas of colours.  Guests can experience Starlight Spectacular nightly throughout the summer at approximately 10:00pm.

For thrills of a different kind, guests can check out the Park's fantastic line-up of live shows!    New for 2011; Start Me Up - a high-energy showcase of swinging 60's sounds, 70's glam rock, and 80's power pop, will play at International Showplace.  At Playhouse Theatre, parents and children will delight in Charlie Brown's Pirate Adventure - a swashbuckling show for little adventurers starring J.T., Linus, Lucy, and Charlie Brown.  Popular favourites Snoopy Rocks on Ice, Victoria Falls High Divers and Kinet-X will also return for another season.
