Vancouver Paradise is an amusement park located in Vancouver, Canada. It is currently owned by Cedar Fair. It primarily consists of rides and roller coasters relocated from many different parks, but it also has rides that were bought new for the park. It is a sister park to Ontario Paradise and Kings Paradise.
In 1979, the park opened as a small leisure park called Canadian Adventures. The park's owner, Richard Riverwood, decided to mainly feature relocated rides from other parks and some newly bought flat rides in his own as it was cheaper and more efficient that way. In 1985 the park was sold to Kings Entertainment Company, which then sold it to Funtime Parks in 1987 after a deal with KECO and another company didn't include the park. In 1996, the park was sold to Premier Parks and renamed Six Flags Vancouver in 1999. However in 2006, when Six Flags was getting rid of several properties, they sold the park to Cedar Fair, which renamed it to Vancouver Paradise. It's been that way ever since.
