VAUGHAN, Ontario, June 23, 2011 /Canada NewsWire/ - Canada's Wonderland will turn the lights on to 30th birthday celebrations this Saturday, June 25 with the all-new Starlight Spectacular. With innovative 3D projection mapping and LED design effects, Starlight Spectacular will enhance the International Street vista with 300,000 LED lights, a custom soundtrack, and exhilarating imagery.
The show begins with the Royal Fountain being lit up in an amazing display of lights and colour. Each of the 113 fountain jets will pulse with 180 custom lights, dancing in an incredible palette of rich colour. Flanking the fountain, the International Street promenade will glitter as 300,000 LED lights are woven into the landscape, twinkling from the Park's trees and buildings.
The highlight of Starlight Spectacular is an unprecedented production of animated effects that will bring Wonder Mountain to life with a spectacular display of lighting and 3D images. All three elements will combine for a state of the art show that will be a dazzling conclusion to a day at Canada's Wonderland.
Starlight Spectacular will take place nightly through September 3 at approximately 10:00pm, weather permitting. For more information on Starlight Spectacular and the 2011 season, check out www.canadaswonderland.com.
