Come celebrate the 25th annual WonderCoaster Contest here at Canada's Wonderland!

For one day only, International Showplace is the place where Canada's future engineers assemble to show off their ideas for Wonderland's next awe-inspiring roller coaster. This fun and educational contest puts your students' understanding of physics to the test. Students enjoy this hands-on learning experience that focuses on gravity driven rides, potential & kinetic energy. All projects are constructed at the school under the guidance of teachers, then set up at Canada's Wonderland for judging on May 8 only. Awards and prizes are issued in various categories including technical merit and "Most Fun to Ride". This exciting and educational contest continues to grow with elementary & senior entries.
