They made rides like Barracuda Blaster , Body Blast, Lazy River Riptide racer The plunge and Whirl Winds.

In the year of 2006 another theme park was interested in buying Canada's Wonderland . The company's name was Cedar Fair Entertainment co. At the time Cedar was another rising company and wanted to buy out all of Paramount 's parks. The deal was made on June 30, and Cedar Fair was busy making changes to it's name and to the park. The first big change they made was changing it's name back to Canada's wonderland.
