Looking to capitalize on the typical downturn an amusement park experiences during the winter months, in winter 2019 Canada’s Wonderland will launch a new season of holiday fun dubbed WinterFest.
Visitors to WinterFest at Canada’s Wonderland will be treated to a new all-immersive holiday experience. During the fest, the park will be transformed into a magical winter wonderland that will feature uniquely themed areas, dozens of Christmas trees, millions of spectacular lights, ice-skating, live entertainment, savoury treats, crafts and hands-on family activities.
The main park fountain will be renamed Snowflake Lake where guests will be able to ice skate underneath brilliant holiday lights. In addition to the ice rink, there will also be nightly live performances where singers and dancers will set the stage for the celebratory lighting ceremony of a 70-foot-tall (21 m) Christmas tree featuring more than 40,000 sparkling ornaments.
There will also be amazing themed food. visitors can feast on savoury treats and holiday favourites like turkey, gourmet hot chocolate and peppermint fudge, and then catch one of a dozen live holiday-themed shows like Cool Yule Christmas and Jingle Jazz. Children can help elves mail letters to Santa, decorate cookies in Mrs. Claus’ Kitchen, and meet classic Peanuts characters or special WinterFest entertainers like Jack Frost, the Sugar Plum Fairy and Candy Cane.
“This is the largest capital investment we’ve made in our park since opening,” said Norm Pirtovshek, Canada’s Wonderland General Manager. “We’re excited to offer world-class thrills and a truly unique experience for our guests next year. Yukon Striker will be the centerpiece of our new themed area Frontier Canada, delivering exhilarating and record-breaking coaster elements like no other in the world. And to cap off our 2019 season, WinterFest will be a holiday event unique to Canada as our park transforms into a winter wonderland. You can expect a magical holiday fun for guests of all ages.”
