If you’re an ISA member near Toronto looking for a thrill, ISA Toronto is hosting a social day at Canada’s Wonderland on Sept. 15, giving members a behind-the-scenes look at how some of the park’s rides operate.
The day kicks off with a guided tour of three of the park’s biggest attractions, Splash Works, Thunder Run and Wonder Mountain, and the brand new Leviathan roller coaster.
While Splash Works will be closed for the season, members will get the chance to see how the park handles the demanding task of providing a safe and fun attraction to the thousands of visitors that pass through its gates. Next, the Thunder Run and Wonder Mountain portion of the tour will show off one of the mainstays and the brains of the park.
Finally, the tour will showcase the newest addition to the park: Leviathan. Leviathan is a 300 foot tall, mile long thrill ride that offers speeds in excess of 140 km/h, and one of the largest, fastest roller coasters in the world.
The day is exclusively for ISA members and their families, and will include a buffet lunch at a private area of the park. For ticket forms, please head to the ISA Toronto website and follow the link for the ISA Toronto Day at Canada’s Wonderland.
