Roller Coasters, Waterslides & Horseback Riding
Theme parks in Ontario for kids
As kids, we all remember our excitement over simple pleasures like roller coasters, waterslides, and even horseback riding. Well, maybe that excitement is still with us. In Ontario, there is something for thrill seekers of all ages – both the young and the young at heart.
Set in Brantford, the Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre is the ideal activity spot for visitors throughout the year. Enclosed in the centre is an olympic-sized pool, sauna, and the pièce de résistance, a pretty decent waterslide.
Dry off and head over to Toronto – just an hour east of the Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre.
Toronto is where the kids want to go, thanks to the Centreville Amusement Park. Open from May through September on Toronto Island, the Centreville Amusement Park features thrills like the Toronto Island Monster Coaster, the Log Flume Ride and the Haunted Barrell Works.
Visiting with extra little ones? Line up for kiddie-friendly rides like the Beasley Bear Ride, the Antique Carousel, or cruise through the park on the Centreville Train. Head back to Centreville Amusement Park for more thrills like the Twirling Tea Cups, Bumper Boats, and the Pony Express. But that’s not all the equestrian adventure there is to be found in Ontario.
Make your way to Waterloo in southern Ontario for the Conestogo River Horseback Adventures. Visitors have access to year-round trail rides, plus summer camps in the warmer months and sleigh rides during the holiday season.
