Canada's Wonderland Circa 1988

Happy Canada Day!

Fred Flintstone, my brother and I in front of the Ghoster Coaster
 
Flipping through my parents' old photos, I came across a couple of pictures from one of our many family trips to Canada's Wonderland. I'm guessing that my brother was five years old in this photo which means I was about ten years old. If I'm right, then this photo was taken around 1988 back when they still had Hanna Barbara Land. We always had so much fun and would spend an entire day there, making the hour trek in from Hamilton well worth it.


This Friday, my family and I will be attending the Family Fun Blogger Day at Canada's Wonderland. We will enjoy exclusive ride time on the new Wonder Mountain's Guardian and exclusive access to Kidzville before the park even opens! I'll be live tweeting while we're there so you can follow along using the #CWThrills hashtag. In the meantime, check out this old commercial from 1988. Six dollar coupons from Shoppers Drugmart... remember those?
