Oh glorious day!  The scourge of banal renaming at Canada’s Wonderland is coming to an end!  Once more, will Wilde Knight Mares, Wilde Beast, Dragon Fyre, and the Canterbury Theatre grace the land of Medieval Faire.  I can only hope that the themeing and paint jobs are also brought up to their full grandeur.

Now if only they’d return the Spinnovator (UGH!) back to Quixotie’s Kettles…

(And yes… pun title fully intended)

To celebrate, here are some great photos from Wonderland’s first season, all from the Toronto Archives:

Following the great news that most of the stained glass has survived, some views of Notre Dame de Paris’ wondrous and amazing stained glass…

(I so love stained glass.  It is one of my architectural ‘fetishes’…)
