Canada's Wonderland is an amusement park located in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada. It opened in 1981 and was Canada's first major amusement park.[1] From 1994 to 2006, the park was owned by Paramount Parks and was known as "Paramount Canada's Wonderland". When sold to Cedar Fair in 2007, the park reverted to its original name. In 2019, some of the rides were restored back to their British names. The park also holds the record for second most roller coasters in a park along with Cedar Point at a total of seventeen roller coasters, two behind record-holder Six Flags Magic Mountain.
