Paramount Canada’s Wonder(where my money went)land

I’m a big fan of Canada’s Wonderland – I’ve gone pretty much every year it’s been open. They do a good job of adding rides and attractions each year and for the most part offer a fun time for all.
It’s no Six Flags or the like that the US has to offer but it can hold its own. It has the required roller coasters, death-defying drops, make-me-want-to-puke spins and kiddy rides that a park needs.
Now, I understand that they charge a lot for a one day entry fee. Most people who live in Toronto know that that’s for the out-of-towners who can’t do anything but pony up the cash for their kiddies who want a day of thrills. Most Torontonians know that if you beat the season start you can get a season’s pass for the price of less than 1 and a half visits.
So what’s my gripe of the day? It’s the price they charge for the damn concessions. It’s outta line. I mean, baseball player salaries, outta line.
We usually remember to take along our own snacks… but today I forgot and my kid was getting hungry around lunch time. I had to pony over almost $4 for a baggy of chips with no more than 7 “gourmet”, mass-produced chips. And I took a second mortgage out to buy a small soda.
How much can they keep raising the price on fountain pop? Fountain pop for g-d’s sake! It tastes like pi$$ and costs about a nickel per gallon to make! Argh!
Damn you Scooby Doo!

    If it’s the photos they take while you’re on a ride, I think that your only chance to buy it was when you just got off the ride, unless anyone from Wonderland said you would be able to find it online.

    I was at wonderland july 10th 2005 with my boyfriend my brother and his g/f!! We had a couple pppl coming up to us taking pictures and handing us a little sheet so we could go and buy the pictures later on…we looked at the pictures and they turned out really good!! the only reason we didnt purchase them was becuz it was too expensive! My boyfriend passed away october 2005 in a car accident!! I really regret not getting the pictured…becuz he hated his pictured baing taken soo i doo not have many of him and i was owndering if theres any way that it would still be there…im willing to pay any price for the pictures!! We have a baby boy as well and i would like as many pictures for him as i can get!!

    Shannon you may want to contact their customer service department (http://www2.paramountparks.com/canadaswonderland/contact.cfm), but to be honest with you, I highly doubt that they archive images that long.
