This internationally acclaimed cultural, leisure, and entertainment complex, designed by Eb Zeidler and opened in 1971, is centered on three man-made islands along the Lake Ontario waterfront. The park is filled with family attractions, from rides to concert venues; snack bars and restaurants are dotted throughout the complex. Taking full advantage of its lakeside setting, Ontario Place offers fantastic water activities, with the city’s only downtown waterpark, featuring gigantic waterslides, flume rides, and wading pools for toddlers.

IMAX

Toronto-based IMAX Corporation is a world leader in large-screen cinema systems. Founded in 1967, the company develops film technologies that heighten the illusory sense of immersion in the cinema experience, including 3-D projections, which simulate a sensation of movement in the viewer. 70mm film stock is used to project an image 10 times the size of conventional 35mm film – what you see in a regular theater. Each IMAX film reel weighs 200 to 300 lbs (90 to 135 kg). A special cooling system in the theater pumps water through the gigantic lamp housing to prevent heat damage to the film. Over 130 venues around the world use IMAX projection systems.

Top 10 Attractions
  1. Cinesphere

    With a six-story-high screen and 24,000 watts of digital sound, this IMAX theater makes movie-watching a spine-tingling experience. For best viewing, pick a seat in the middle of a row. The theater, housed in a Triodetic dome, was the world’s first permanent IMAX venue when it was built, in 1971.

  2. MegaMaze

    Navigate seven mazes in this multilevel indoor-outdoor labyrinth. Mirrors, lasers, and sound effects add to the challenge of finding your way out.

  3. Soak City

    This waterpark features four heart-stopping rides. The Hydrofuge shoots riders through a tunnel into a giant bowl, where you spin in circles before landing in a pool of water, while the Rush River Raft Ride takes riders on an exhilarating, 873-ft (266-m) plunge. Children who do not meet the age and height restrictions can have lots of wet and wild fun in the splash pool.
