Ontario place - Toronto

Ontario Place is a multiple use entertainment and seasonal amusement park owned by the Province of Ontario. Located on the shore of Lake Ontario, just south of Exhibition Place, it is approximately 4 km west of downtown Toronto.

Opened in 1971, it consists of three artificially constructed, landscaped islands. Attractions are spread throughout the park

This was 148 kms drive for us. I have a backup driver now, so mostly sit and guide(not yet relax) ;)

Parents can enjoy water slides with their family, while kids are the stars with all the rides open for them. Even toddlers have a seperate area where they have their own mind games. In the evenings chinese lanterns are lit and it looks awesome.

    To Conclude
    We mostly enjoyed the water slides which were of a lil thrill, most other rides were simply for kids. This is the place for family to have fun together. A must visit for people with kids if you happen to visit Toronto.
