Wonderland has changed a lot in the fifteen years or so since I last visited and there are probably twice as many rides. The boys are a little young yet for the biggest, fastest roller coasters - Ghoster Coaster and Wild Beast were as brave as they were willing to get this year - which is why we've put off visiting Wonderland until now, thinking there wouldn't be much for them to enjoy. But I had no idea how much the children's area of the park has expanded!
The wonderful thing about Wonderland is that it's almost like two theme parks in one - there are the two children's areas and the three areas packed with roller coasters and thrill rides (Action Zone, International Festival and Medieval Faire) but there's also Splash Works, a water park area as large as a theme park itself. We spent nearly half the day in Splash Works, working up from the kiddie slides, spray pad and pools of Splash Island to the family-friendly Lazy River to the fun of the Pump House and the Whitewater Bay wave pool and finally the action-packed "thrill ride" slides - Body Blast, Riptide Racer, Super Soaker, Whirlwinds, the Black Hole and The Plunge. Baby had to sit the big slides out, of course, but was thrilled to play in the Pump House splash area for hours.
I can't think of a better way to spend a scorching August afternoon!
