Canada's Wonderland Has Record Attendance


Being a kid in Toronto, summer time meant going to Wonderland. A lot.

At a very young age, I knew that Wonderland totally kicked the asses of La Ronde and Marineland when it came to roller coasters and general awesomeness. For 12 year-old me, it was pretty much the coolest place ever.

Looks like I wasn't the only one.

The Themed Entertainment Association along with Economics Research Associates reports that Canada's Wonderland had the highest seasonal theme park attendance in North America for the second year running. The park, which opens near the end of next month, brought in 3.2 million people in 2006.

Okay, so it's still over-priced, smelly and hot and the ride line-ups might not feel worth it as an adult, but where else can you eat strawberry funnel cakes and ride The Bat for an afternoon?
