Canada’s Wonderland says goodbye to an old ride but has something new for guests

Moosehorn Falls

For over 20 years, Canada’s Wonderland has had a ride at its Vaughan amusement park that featured a 47-metre free fall before swinging over guests on the ground looking up, wondering if they would be brave enough to do ride the Xtreme Skyflyer themselves. Now, after nearly a million rides, the popular ride has now been taken out of operation, and Canada’s Wonderland has announced that it will be dismantled and removed.

The park will be opening its Splash Works water park on May 3rd, and May 25th will be the first day of play at Canada’s Wonderland. The water park will feature a “Giant Boomerang Water Slide Moose Horn Falls,” which the park has said was inspired by the Broad River Waterfalls, along the Moosehorn Trail in Fundy National Park, New Brunswick.

Other changes the park has announced are updates to its Backlot Café, the “Viking’s Rage” ride being converted to electric, and the addition of a VIP lounge for the Prestige Pass holders.

There is also “a lot” of construction underway near Wonder Mountain and some of the buildings in the Alpen area of the park have been removed or relocated, including Tiny Tom Donuts.

Representatives of the amusement park have shared that there will be a “special announcement” about some of the other construction projects at the park in early April.
