This week on Art of Amusement Parks, we are going to take a look at some early season landscaping at Canada’s Wonderland. Season Pass Sneak Preview Night is an event held for Season Pass Holders to visit the park before the general public on opening weekend. Season Pass Sneak Preview Night also allows us to see some amazing landscaping efforts early in the season.
International Street Sneak Peek Springtime Landscaping
After a long winter season, Wonder Mountain continues to stand tall overlooking the Royal Fountains. It is a beautiful sight to see, especially as the trees on International Street begin to grow their leaves. Not only do the leaves on trees begin to grow, but so do the leaves on the shrubs that line the beautiful Royal Fountains. This all makes way for a picture perfect moment, especially once the darkness of the night rolls around later in the evening. But, before darkness rolls around, visitors should look at the prettiness of the pansies that sit in place of the Floral Canadian Flag early in the season.
New Landscaping of International Festival
As we venture off of International Street, into International Festival, a new ride known as Soaring Timbers awaits. Along with a new thrill ride, comes some very amazing and stunning landscaping. Soaring Timbers operates where the Pro Putt Mini Golf had operated for 23 years. As many park goers know, willow trees surround the area, which creates tons of shade during the hot summer months. With the removal of some of the older willow trees to make way for Soaring Timbers, new willow trees were put in place nearby. But, it’s not only the willow trees that surround Soaring Timbers. A beautiful water fall formation, along with spectacular cedar rail fences were added in front of Soaring Timbers to relate to the theme of the ride. Also, Soaring Timber’s sign is a piece of the landscape as well as it is held up by strong cedar timbers.
The Old Yet Highly Attractive Landscaping
As we venture around Wonder Mountain, more shrubs sprawl throughout International Festival. The smaller shrubs growalongside the paths nearby Klockwerks, complementing the wooden German themed fences. There are also more shrubs around Wonder Mountain to give it a ‘natural appeal’ while making the park highly attractive. The smaller shrubs truly start to grow once the temperature begins to rise as the summer season nears.
Nighttime Landscaping Spectacular
As the sun begins to set for the evening, some landscaping features come to life as they illuminate at night. This is especially true with International Street as it becomes a magical world of illumination for all visitors to see. The Royal Fountains are truly spectacular as they rise and lower in the multi-coloured light show. International Street is a magical place as the attractive lights string around many trees along the paths.
Landscaping to See at Night
But, it isn’t just International Street that is a spectacle to see when catching thrills at night. The Medieval Faire fountain located in front of Wonderland Theatre illuminates with red lights causing for an eye-catching display. When you venture to Planet Snoopy during this evening, you will notice the attractively illuminated water fountains. These are just a few of the highly attractive landscaping features which are prominently visible while spending an evening at Canada’s Wonderland.
That ends an evening of Season Pass Sneak Preview Night. I hope you enjoyed taking a peek at the amazing landscaping efforts put together by Canada’s Wonderland’s landscaping crew. Visiting the park in the evening will amaze you as the landscape appears in spectacular illumination.
