|NEW! Wonder Mountain's Guardian Opens May 2014|
at Canada's Wonderland!
Have you heard the latest buzz surrounding Canada's Wonderland in Vaughan, Ontario? This May 2014, they will be unveiling their newest ride called Wonder Mountain's Guardian! A NEW Canada's Wonderland ride, WOO-HOO! Even better, Wonder Mountain's Guardian will actually be built into the iconic caverns of Wonder Mountain! To me, going inside of Wonder Mountain, is akin to pulling back the Great Wizard of Oz's curtain, or finding the elusive reason behind the Mona Lisa's smile. Yes, it's that special!
Wonder Mountain's Guardian is a thrilling, interactive 4-D dark ride that's heavily based in graphics (I'll talk 4D later). It features the very latest projection 3D technology, and surrounds riders with a long, interactive wall--the longest in the world! The whole family can ride together, and each rider is equipped with 3D glasses and an easy-to-handle "laser gun". It begins with a "treacherous" ascent up the side of Wonder Mountain to the 60' level, then swoops down into its core and traverses five different layers of this dimensional world!
Riders will encounter mythical creatures as they manoeuvre 1,000 feet of coaster track through a forsaken forest, subterranean lake and Draconian City. The tension mounts as riders penetrate the dragon’s lair for the ultimate battle--with a heart-pounding finale that will awe thrill-seekers of all ages!

Wonder Mountain's Guardian Ride at Canada's Wonderland
Of special interest, Wonder Mountain's Guardian is a scored ride, and each rider will have his or her own high score and photo displayed at the end of the ride! The storyline will be somewhat different for each rider, depending on which elements that have been interacted with on the screen. There will also be hidden secrets in the game that players can reveal after multiple rides, so there’s depth to this attraction and it will keep riders coming back for more.
"The ground-breaking technology for the Wonder Mountain’s Guardian ride will allow guests to experience stunning 3D effects overlaid with 4-D elements: simulating wind, movement and more. Real time graphics and the fastest most accurate targeting system will be installed to create an ultra-immersive interactive experience." What 4D means is that riders will see and “feel” all of the elements coming out of the screen! WOOT! “Wonder Mountain's Guardian will be a one-of-a-kind, never seen before attraction.”
As a parent, I'm delighted that my older age kids and I will be able to ride together on Wonder Mountain's Guardian! Although the ride has appeal for adults and teens, it's also a great stepping stone for kids who will soon be doing the park by themselves! I also like that this is a shaded ride, as on hot, sunny days it's nice to give the kids (and their parents) and break from the heat.
Construction of Wonder Mountain's Guardian is currently underway, and you can see photos of the progress on Canada's Wonderland Facebook page HERE! Opening day for Canada's Wonderland will be upon us very soon, on Sunday May 4th, 2014! Yes, you know that Spring really is around the corner when Canada's Wonderland is about to open its doors!
