Highlights of the 2024 season at Canada’s Wonderland include new giant boomerang water slide and expanded event dates

Park opens May 3

Vaughan, April 03, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Canada’s Wonderland opens in one month on May 3 and today it released the full lineup of exciting events and entertainment for the 2024 season, including additional dates for its fireworks show on the Canada Day long weekend, a new, exclusive SickKids’ Day fundraising event and an additional weekend for Oktoberfest this fall.

The park is also introducing a new giant boomerang water slide called Moosehorn Falls. When Splash Works opens May 25, guests will have a chance to climb aboard this new raft adventure and travel down a rushing river cascade of twists, turns and drops before being propelled to the summit of a zero-gravity, 13-metre wall.

Moosehorn Falls is inspired by waterfalls on the Broad River along the Moosehorn Trail in Fundy National Park, New Brunswick, within the UNESCO-designated Fundy Biosphere Region.

“We want to provide a diverse range of experiences to our guests and make sure we’re offering plenty to see and do throughout the year,” said Phil Liggett, general manager. “Beyond the roller coasters and thrill rides, we have our 20-acre water park, two children’s areas, world-class entertainment and four seasons of events. Whether you’re a thrill seeker or a parent with young kids, we’ve got something for everyone.”
