Water and trees…we usually think of communing with nature when we think of them, but in this post we focus on the adventure and fun that water and trees provide. Waterparks, Ziplines, Ropes Courses, & Aerial Parks all offer hours of entertainment on a nice summer day. Check for more options in the amusements and outdoor adventures categories on the SFG site!
Waterpark Fun in Ontario
When the weather is nice, and you don’t have access to a pool, head to one of Ontario’s awesome outdoor waterparks to cool off. At Wild Waterworks, experience Canada’s largest outdoor wave-action pool, 5.5-storey tube slides & an Eazy River. Bingemans Big Splash & FunworX Indoor Playland has slides, a wavepool and a spray n’ play-ground for the younger set. Wet N Wild opens this summer with $25 million invested in this 45 acre water park with a tropical them.
All-in-One Amusement Parks & Adventures in Ontario
Some places offer a wide range of outdoor activities – so you can spend the whole day going from one activity to the next .

And Santa’s Village – Muskoka’s Theme Park has a zipline & aerial park combined with go-karts, laser tag, mini golf & a climbing wall.

Suspension Bridges & Other Thrills
If you like to be up high, there are some other options other than ropes and ziplines. How about Scenic Caves Nature Adventure’s Suspension Bridge? It is the longest footbridge in S. Ontario, at 420’ in length. From 82’ high, you can see miles of countryside. Ranney Gorge Suspension Bridge is a 300’ long bridge, 30’ above the Ranney Gorge just south of the falls. The bridge sways slightly as you walk from end to end – YIKES! Or if you like to fall from heights, Blue Mountain Apex Bag Jump lets you freefall 21 ft onto the airbag waiting below.
Wherever your thrills & skills lie, you are sure to find something to excite everyone in your group at the Adventure Parks across Ontario. You don’t have to zip across the treetops if heights are not your thing. Explore caves, jump in waves, play mini golf and don’t let anyone push you around! There’s enough adventure and excitement to suit all preferences.
