Marineland, official name Marineland of Canada Inc., is a themed amusement and animal exhibition park in the city of Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. Owing to its proximity to the falls and other natural park areas and its blend of animal attractions and rides, it is one of the main tourist destinations in Niagara Falls, Canada.
The park first opened in 1961 as "Niagara Game Farm", without any of the current marine attractions or rides.
It also featured a First Nations' replica village. The original Niagara Game Farm was essentially a small zoo, a large part of which was a petting zoo. Within a few years, the marine attractions were added, and the park's name was changed to "Niagara Marineland And Game Farm", and by 1966 it was officially just "Marineland and Game Farm". In the 1970s Kandu the killer whale became the park's major attraction, the "and Game Farm" part of the name was dropped. Although it was still referred to as "Marineland and Game Farm" until the mid 1980s in television and radio advertisements. It was also around this time that the park began adding rides such as Dragon Mountain to encourage teenagers and younger visitors.
Marineland is open from the Victoria Day weekend through to Canadian Thanksgiving weekend in October. Rides operate until nightfall.
