As some of the world’s most beloved theme parks shut up shop for the foreseeable future, Canada’s Wonderland is bringing their rollercoasters to your living room.
Attention kids, big and little: Are you missing an adrenaline rush in your new work-from-home schedule? This Canadian theme park has you covered.
Joining the likes of the Metropolitan Opera in New York, The Louvre and the San Diego Zoo, Canada’s Wonderland, the country’s largest theme park, is giving virtual patrons the opportunity to skip the lines and ride in the front seat of some of its most popular attractions.
That means you can feel every hairpin twist, sharp jolting turn and plummeting dip from home, with 34 of the park’s 70 rides turned into a virtual tour reality experience.
Afraid of heights? Conquer them from your lounge by taking on the heart-racing action of the Yukon Striker (watch above), the world’s tallest and fastest rollercoaster – it stands 68 metres tall and reaches a maximum speed of 130 kilometres per hour.
Brace yourself for the stomach-churning action of the spinning pendulum Psyclone (above), forgo the poncho on the Timberwolf Falls log flume (below), and soar 92 metres above the ground on the giant swing WindSeeker.
Little adrenaline junkies can join in the fun, too, with kids height restrictions no issue when it comes to virtually experiencing the bigger rides.
With our amusement park adventures on hold, this is as close as we’ll get to nail biting, hair raising rollercoaster action for a while.
