US theme park chain Wet 'n Wild coming to Toronto

Winter might be descending on Toronto, but it's never too early to start dreaming about summer, especially since there's a new warm weather attraction to get excited about.

Premier Parks, which owns and operates numerous theme parks in the United States, has bought Brampton's Wild Water Kingdom. It's transforming it into Wet'n'Wild, a waterpark chain with locations in places such as Hawaii and Palm Springs.

The company's spending $25 million to revamp the existing park with so-called Canadian-inspired attractions, such as the Krazy Kanuck family raft ride and the Klondike Express mat slide racer. There will also be a tree-house-inspired kids area, a bowl slide and lots of other water rides.

“We are excited about the opportunity to completely rebuild Wild Water Kingdom into a first-class waterpark that Canadians will be proud to call their own,” says general manager Steve Mayer in a news release.

The park's slated to open in May 2017, and season passes go on sale next week.
