Northern America takes their holidays seriously, entire industries are born from these various holidays ranging from Christmas to Halloween to Valentine’s Day. Halloween takes the cake though as everyone goes all out for this fun holiday. There are various attractions that can be enjoyed throughout Canada & the USA.
In Canada there is “Canada’s Wonderland’s Halloween Haunt” and in Northern America every Six Flags in the United States of America holds “Fear Fest”. These theme parks become a nightmare in a matter of hours. There is dozens of scary clowns, ghouls and goblins to create screams throughout the crowds. There are dozens of elaborate haunted houses that’ll provide a chill with every corner. There are other attractions to be held, one of them is at Holiday World in Santa Claus, Indiana. They have twelve acres of corn mazes that are all connected with one another. Two hundred and fifty employee’s wander throughout the corn mazes with fake chainsaws and more.
Regardless of wherever you go, one place or another will have dozens of activities for children, young adults and adults to enjoy alike. Universal Studio’s holds dozens of different themed events including The Walking Dead, Insidious, and Alien vs. Predator. There is also a one time “Freddy vs. Jason” & “The Purge” night where things get beyond scary.
Choose your theme park and begin a Halloween adventure in the upcoming weeks. It should be noted that every one of these events will require a payment entrance fee upon arrival & more than likely a parking fee will be required as well.
So many people believe that Zoos are a safe haven for animals and mammals but in Northern America that is far from the case, instead these creates are often put on display and treated as if they were slaves. Many people such as PETA & the US Department of Agriculture try their hardest to ensure that these animals are safe and happy.
The Wild Things Zoo in Dade Country, Florida is now being ripped a part by media and have begun to see a mass amount of profit being lost due to the fact that they are allowing for people to swim with baby tigers. At first people think well this can’t be a bad thing but tigers in general only like to swim for a cool dip, then they return back to land. Instead at this zoo they are forcing the baby lions to swim with humans, in a video that has now gone viral you can see the employee’s at the zoo forcing the lions to stay in the water even though they are crying immensely.
This has caused for the Department of Agriculture in the U.S.A and PETA to do everything in their power to ensure that these cubs are no longer looked at by “The Wild Thing Zoo” and it’s very possibly that they could lose their license to operate if the rest of the animals are found to be treated in a poor way. Luckily it’s good to see that these lions won’t have to hopefully deal with the ignorance of humans for a long time.
Game of Thrones now stands as one of the most popular television shows in history, it’s even more popular than the likes of “The Walking Dead”. The sixth season of this show has just begun to be filmed and one of the film locations known as the “Ice Wall” will be more than likely remaining within Northern Ireland.
This set is one of the largest to ever be built of a movie or television series, it spans miles in distance and looks as if it is truly made out of ice. Being made entirely out of steel beams and concrete this facility would also be incredibly hard to take down as well as it could withstand the horrible weather for decades to a millennia. Local councillors requested that the ice wall remain on the shores of the Irish Sea in hopes that’ll be trademarked as a massive tourist attraction, potentially allowing for a major growth in the tourism industry for the city as Game of Thrones has fans who are be love the books, show, actors and scene locations behind the culture phenomenon.
Unfortunately as of right now there isn’t any word as to when or if HBO will allow for this wall to remain within Ireland. There is no way for them to sell the set, it’d just require that Ireland keep the facility up to date in order to still make it appealing to look at throughout the rough seasons Ireland enjoys each year. None the less for the foreseeable future this ice wall will be remaining where she stands.
The famed & beloved national treasure theme park known as “Disneyland” announced that they are considering on a $1 billion expansion of the park. This would include a variety of new rides, theme parks and attractions that’ll surely not just bring new customers to the park but old ones as well. Unfortunately in order for this deal to pass through the Walt Disney Company is asking the Anaheim, the city in which Disneyland is located in is asking that they forgo any taxes on theme park admission tickets for the next three decades.
This isn’t much to ask as the $1 billion expansion would earn the city millions just on its land tax of the new property that Walt Disney Co. would own. If they allow for this to be the case then a new parking structure with 5,000 spots would be created and other improvements to the rest of the park would also be made. The City Council is deciding on this matter on July 7th but there are no guarantees of this deal happening as the previous entertainment exemption tax that Walt Disney Co. started back in 1996 expires on June 30th, 2016. This being a year away means that it wouldn’t be another thirty one years until Disney would have to pay this tax.
None the less this deal will more than likely pan through as the city council knows how much money Disneyland could bring in for just not the city but the county as well with a new expansion. We shall keep you posted as to what happens.
Canada’s Wonderland is one of the few theme parks in Canada that can resemble that of Six Flags or Universal Studios. This year instead of focusing on a new rollercoaster just as they did in 2014 & 2013 with the Leviathan & the Behemoth, Wonderland has decided to create a new attraction to their water park. This new attraction being called “Typhoon”.
Typhoon is an incredible water slide to say the least. There are four different swirls, two of each one of the Typhoon slides. As wonderland ventures go down the slide they’ll go through one swirl, down another slide and through another swirl until they reach the swimming pool with the final length of the slide. This is by far the best water attraction to come to Wonderland in years as it has been nearly a decade since they last begun to upgrade their water park.
Children also have a new little water park to enjoy called “Splash Station” which is an interactive kids water park designed for those children to experience an adventure. The Splash Station is a major upgrade compared to the previous children’s water park that still lies in the Canada’s Wonderland Water Park.
People living near this theme park can enjoy these new water attractions today as the water park was open not too long ago as was the rest of the theme park. Enjoy everything that Wonderland has to offer from their games to rides to the new waterpark!
The New World Trade Center stands as a monument to the previous two towers that stood more than a decade ago. In the new world trade center there is a museum that people can attend to find out more about those lives saved and those heroes of September 11th, 2001. Today it was also revealed that another attraction will be coming to the new world trade center. There is an observation deck that is currently being built and will be released later on in the year for people to enjoy. This observation deck will essentially be the indoor version of the Empire State Building Observation Deck. You’ll be able to view all of Manhattan, Brooklyn & other famous areas around NYC.
There is no word as to when the specific release date will be for this observation deck. We do know that like the museum there will be different kinds of facts listed around the opposite wall of the windows for people to read as well. There will more than likely be a shop for people to purchase various items, this’ll be one of the new places to must attend when visiting New York City as a tourist. There will also be an admission price to enter this observation deck but the incredible view that you’ll see will be more than worth the small amount you’ll have to pay.
We shall inform you of the official release date on this observation deck when that date is revealed to the public. Until then you can attend “The New World Trade Center Museum”.
Disney owns an array of new companies that has allowed for them to grow as a company like never before. When you think of Disney you think of all of the famous movies they’ve made throughout the years such as “Cinderella” or “Tangled” but recently throughout the last couple of years Disney has become more known for their various other properties. Disney currently owns Star Wars, Avatar and the Marvel Universe. Today it was revealed that new Star Wars and Avatar themed park attractions would be coming to the various Disney Parks across the world. Already you can take pictures with various characters from all of Disney’s film franchises at their park.
There is no word as to what these new attractions will be but you can expect the Star Wars themed attractions to include the Millennium Falcon and various Jedi like rides or Sith. We have no idea as to what Disney will do with an Avatar ride but we will keep you up to date on what these rides will be as time goes on. Currently everyday you can watch Storm Troopers, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker and other famous characters from the Star Wars film walk down the Disney Parade which is held every day at the park.
Those wishing to go to Disney Land can either go to their website or they can go to your local trip advisor in order to find the cheapest rates available to go to the park for a vacation.
The man who stabbed two young men in the Canada’s Wonderland stabbing on October 26th, 2014 has been found & arrested. Minutes after midnight when Canada’s Wonderland closed for October 26th police were called to the parking lot due to two men being stabbed, Kevin Ramkalawan died on the scene after being stabbed & the other individual stabbed is still in hospital recovering from life threatening injuries.
Luckily the man who stabbed these two men, T’Neal David Ayodeji-Dannal has now been charged with second degree murder & attempted murder, he will now spend the next twenty five years to life in prison. T’Neal is only eighteen years old so he will be able to be convicted as an adult. It has been more than half a month and law enforcement were unsure if they were going to be able to find the person who committed these crimes.
This event has caused major trauma just not for the families involved with this stabbing but also for people who saw this man die on the scene. Young children attend Halloween Haunt, the special Halloween Event held on the weekends in October at Canada’s Wonderland. It was said that multiple young children ranging from ten years of age to sixteen saw this horrific event, some of them being there to see the event fully take place.
The York Regional Police Homicide Unit has been asking that if anyone has any more information regarding this stabbing or anyone else who might be involved with what happened on October 26th, 2014 at Canada’s Wonderland to inform them immediately.
Canada’s Wonderland is the largest theme park located in the country of Canada, it is also the only recognizable theme park located in Canada. Today Canada’s Wonderland revealed that they are re-building their water park from the ground up as their current water park doesn’t mead updated codes made in early October. This is why Canada’s Wonderland will be making new additions to The Plunge, The Lazy River, Super Soaker, Splash Works & the Body Blast.
There is also going to be a brand new water slide called the “Typhoon”. It’s a thrilling new slide that will have hairpin turns and oscillating funnels in order to make the experience that much more enjoyable for those attending the water park. This new slide will also have state of the arc security protocols in order to protect children who are riding the new Typhoon Water Slide.
There is no word if Canada’s Wonderland will also be building a new roller coaster this year. They’ve run out of space in their park which means that they would have to tear down one of the wooden roller coasters in order to make way for a new roller coaster. We will inform you of any new additions or rides making their way to Canada’s Wonderland in the 2015 season.
Currently those who wish to attend Canada’s Wonderland can do so for one more weekend between the 31st and the 2nd of November. The reason for this is because of Halloween Haunt, when the park is designed to resemble spooky Halloween.
