If you are in the Niagara Falls area and want to find a fun activity for the kids to enjoy, try Marineland Canada. At Marineland Canada kids will be thrilled to see sea lions, dolphins and killer whales in shows and up-close in an observation tank. There’s also a wildlife display where children can feed and pet deer and see bears and elk. If this weren’t enough, there are also a number of theme-park rides and three restaurants.
Marineland Niagara Falls Canada is one of the only marine parks in the world that allows visitors the opportunity to get up-close and personal with the amazing marine animals. A tried-and-true favorite is the aquarium theatre show performances by dolphins, killer whales, sea lions, and of course, King Waldorf, the walrus. The King Waldorf Stadium Show takes place throughout the day at regular intervals. Get there early to get a good seat because seating is on a first-come, first-served basis and guests are not allowed in once a show has started.
To see killer whales close up, children can go to Friendship Cove, a 4.5 million gallon observation tank. Friendship Cove is home to the largest whale habitat in the world, and Marineland Canada has created overhead walkways and underwater viewing for some dramatic views of these amazing creatures. There is another aquarium which displays freshwater fish that kids will have fun observing as well.
Similar to the Friendship Cove design, Marineland Niagara Falls Canada has created Arctic Cove, home to the beluga whales. Artic Cove is beautifully designed with extensive rockwork made to reflect the beluga whale’s natural ocean environment. Like Friendship Cove, Marineland Ontario has built several walkways around the habitat for great viewing of the whales. The underwater viewing panels allow visitors to watch the beautiful creatures as they dive and swim and interact with each other. Kids will really love the opportunity to feed the friendly beluga whales. Marineland Ontario holds touching and feeding sessions with the animals regularly throughout the day, though you must buy tickets for this activity.
At Marineland Ontario, the whole family will enjoy getting close to the animals that live both on land and in the sea. There are elk and deer in the park that you can touch and feed if you so desire. At the fish-feeding lake guests can feed fish and watch playful black bears, powerful buffaloes, majestic elk and other fascinating animals of the wild.
Marineland Niagara Falls Canada also has all of the amusement park rides that kids love. There is a roller coaster, a Ferris wheel, Dragon Boat rides and a big playground. The most exhilarating ride of all is Dragon Mountain, a roller coaster that loops and winds through 1,000 feet of tunnels.
