Ontario Place



Ontario Place review Rate it

This public amusement park was built in the 1970s, when Canadian nationalism (and, some would say, government spending) was at its zenith. The private sector has since stolen all the thunder at Paramount Canada's Wonderland north of the city, but Ontario Place retains the pleasure of its lakeside location. The walkways, cafés and the world's first IMAX theatre are built out over the water, and many of the rides - from water slides to a nifty log-boat ride - involve getting at least a little wet. The pedal boats, normally the runt of the amusement park litter, are fun, as you can chug in and out of the futuristic structures that criss-cross the water. The park is also home to the Molson Amphitheatre, a 15,000-capacity alfresco venue, where fans spread out on the grass hill or take the reserved seats to watch top summertime touring acts.

I went last summer and it was one of the worst places I have ever been to. The reason why I say that is because the prices were $20 for parking. $15 to get in the park gate and $5 to ride each ride plus an upgrade fee of $5 to ride certain rides which is a stupid idea. When I was there mostly everything was closed (consessions, games , and rides except for the Imax theatre, the log ride and the motion simulator. We also had to pay all the prices listed above to ride the 2 rides that were actually running. If u wanna go somewhere go to canadas wonderland. There's more rides, consessions and a huge waterpark. I went to Ontario Place in August 2009
