A mile from Niagara’s Horseshoe Falls, Marineland is the largest theme park in Ontario. At its King Waldorf Stadium Show you’ll get to see flips and tricks performed by bottlenose dolphins, walruses and sea lions. There’s also a resident orca to visit and a group of arctic beluga whales you can pet and feed for a small fee.
Marineland opened in 1961 and now claims to be home to the world's largest steel roller coaster and highest triple tower ride. Along with live musical performances in summer, Marineland also hosts some of Canada's most iconic animals, including a group of black bears and colonies of elk, bison and deer. There’s also an aviary and colorful carp and koi to view around the deck bridges.
Sunbathing and picnic areas dot the park, and there's also an onsite restaurant, pizzeria and snack stalls. Visitors can also bring in their own good and soft drinks if they wish.
On 7657 Portage Road, Marineland day passes cost $42.95. Children aged 5-12 go for $35.95, while children aged 4 and under go free. For a season ticket, add $5 to your ticket price and you can come back anytime throughout the year. Open from from May’s Victoria Day weekend until Canadian Thanksgiving weekend in October, rides operate until nightfall. Free parking is available.
