One of the videos said it was inspired by Miniatur Wunderland in Germany.

Wunderland is still the one everything else is compared to.

I’d agree about Germany’s Wunderland (it’s on my bucket list), but if the layout in Toronto can pull it off, it’s nice to have a North American attraction (ie in our backyard)....cheers

For you European train buffs, I’ve been to Osoyoos, BC....this is a spectacular model railway.

This indeed looks spectacular. From the pictures it seems that layout of Wonderland is much better designed to handle large crowds of spectators.
