Wonder Mountain's Guardian is a steel enclosed roller coaster built by German manufacturer ART Engineering currently located at Canada's Wonderland in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada.

History

Wonder Mountain's Guardian was announced on August 30, 2013. During the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) Attractions Expo 2013, the characters of the ride were revealed during president and CEO of Cedar Fair Matt Ouimet's keynote address.

Much like Volcano The Blast Coaster at Kings Dominion, several holes had to be drilled into the mountain in order to build the ride.

The ride was scheduled to open on May 4, 2014, but the opening was delayed to May 24.
