Wonder Park is a beautifully animated amusement park that is only a “wonder” for a select few.

June is a happy young girl that with her Mom and her imagination created the most incredible imaginary amusement park called “Wonder Park”. Together they invent new rides usually with origami paper or knick-knacks around the house then whisper the ideas in the ear of Peanut, June’s stuffed monkey and then in Wonder Park Peanut waves his golden pen and the new ride comes to life.

Wonder park has a group of ambassadors that include Boomer the bear (Ken Hudson Campbell), Greta the warthog (Mila Kunis), Steve the porcupine (John Oliver) and the beavers Cooper and Gus (Ken Jong & Kenan Thompson) that great the visitors and assure them of a “splendifforous” time.
