Splash Works is a 20-acre (81,000 m2) water park located within the park boundaries of Canada's Wonderland in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada. Entry is free with park admission. Splash Works is home to "Whitewater Bay", the largest outdoor wave pool in Canada, and is today home to 16 waterslides.

History

First expansion: 1992

The year 1992 saw the opening of the park. The park opened with 10 acres (40,000 m2) and it cost the company $6 million CAD. It opened with a lazy river, and water slides Body Blast, Whirl Winds.

Second expansion: 1996

The year 1996 was the single largest expansion of the water park since its opening in 1992. It saw Splash Works expand to 20 acres (81,000 m2) through an expansion south of the Mighty Canadian Minebuster, so much so, some of the track had to be reconfigured so a bridge could be built over it. It essentially created a south side to the water park. The 1996 expansion saw the creation of White Water Bay, which is still the largest outdoor wavepool in Canada, along with the Black Hole waterslides and Pump House, an interactive spray ground.

Third expansion: 1999

The year 1999 was the third expansion of Splash Works. It saw the creation of two new slides, Super Soaker and the Plunge. While two separate rides, they share a common loading platform tower. The 1999 expansion also saw another bridge to the south side of Splash Works (behind these two slides). In addition, these two new slides and new bridge cross over Minebuster. The Plunge is a multi-person raft straight down a slide, and the Super Soaker is twisting water slide. They both use the same tube.

Forth expansion: 2002

The year 2002 has been the latest expansion of Splash Works with the addition of Riptide Race and Barracuda Blaster. Barracuda Blaster took a part of the Lazy River for exiting out of the bowl and Riptide Racer also created a new waterfall for the Lazy River. Barracuda Blaster is bowl ride, and Riptide Race is an eight lane water carpet slide race.

  • Splash Island Pool
