Not into rides? Lots to do at Canada’s Wonderland for Non-Thrill Seekers

Here at Canada’s Wonderland, we offer more than just rides. From live entertainment, shows, arcades, food festivals and so much more, we guarantee you’ll enjoy your time here at the park. Below are a few ideas of things to do throughout the 2019 season.

Shows and Live Entertainment

Performing since our first opening in 1981, the Victoria Falls High Divers show is steeped in tradition. You won't want to miss watching our High Divers take a leap over Victoria Falls off Wonder Mountain at a height of over 60ft! If you think that’s cool, you’ll also love the Flying Frontenacs as they stunt dive off a 70ft platform with incredible flips, turns, and dives.

While you’re here, make sure to check out our new and exciting show Tundra: A Cirque Experience. Prepare to be amazed as these spectacular entertainers perform on balance beams, demonstrate their contortion skills and fly through the air on dog sleds. You’ll be mesmerized by magical displays of acrobatics and mystique as they take you on a tour of the cold north and feature breathtaking views of the Northern Lights.

Want to see a show that keeps you on the edge of your seat with exhilarating thrills? Then you need to watch the Ultimate Thrills Circus! Throughout summer be sure to catch performances of the Aerial Lyra, Globe of Death, Human Cannonball, and the world-renowned Bertini Family in One Wheel Wonder. During your stay, make sure to also watch the Chinese Acrobat Show as they wow the audience with astonishing juggling dexterity, incredible balancing feats, and aerial acrobatics.

You didn’t think we forgot about the little ones, did you? Join the PEANUTS™ Block Party and Snoopy’s Dog Days of Summer as they sing and dance their way through the season. Visit Planet Snoopy to attend these fun-filled events and have your chance to possibly be a part of their show!

You can also find our good friend Snoopy at the Front Gate Plaza daily as he orchestrates the Symphony of Water at Royal Fountain. At night, be sure to watch the spectacular display of lighting, music, lasers, and water effects, set to the backdrop of 3D projections onto Wonder Mountain during the Starlight Spectacular.

All of our shows are sure to entertain you and your friends all season long. Be sure to check out our events page to learn more about dates and show times. You won’t want to miss it!

Food & Festivals

Visiting the park for the day and looking for somewhere to eat? Our park is full of delicious and unique eateries including Backlot Café, Marketplace International Buffet, Kings Feast, Grab & Go Market, and much more. You may also want to treat yourself to our famous Funnel Cakes for dessert or head on over to Sugar Bush Waffle and Dairy Bar. No matter what type of food you’re looking for we proudly offer an array of selection for our guests including those with dietary restrictions.

But picture this... a foodies dream come true. Five delectable food festivals will be held throughout the summer here at the Park! Join us for Brew & BBQ, Oktoberfest, as well as, Taste of Mexico, Greece, and Italy. Be serenaded with live music while you indulge in a multitude of tasty dishes and enjoy fantastic street entertainment that will bring these events to life!

Games and Arcades

Rain or shine, our indoor arcade rooms are a fantastic way to enjoy some time with your friends and family. Visit Crystal Palace or Arcadium and play some of the best games in the park. Check out our outdoor gaming areas in KidZville, Alpen, Medieval Faire, and Expo Games. Shoot some hoops or hit the target for your chance to win a great prize!

Whether or not you refer to yourself as a ride warrior we guarantee that there is fun to be had for everyone. From shows to festivals and games for all Canada’s Wonderland is the best place to be during your summer vacation.
