It's only an hour and a half drive, but it's a nightmare by public transit because (as far as I can tell) you'd have to go via downtown Toronto, taking you about 50 km out of your way.
For example, on a Saturday, the trip from the Brampton Bus Terminal to the Niagara Falls train station can be done in three hours and ten minutes _each way_. (You'd take the GO Bus from the Brampton Bus Terminal at 8:30 am, catch the 9:40 am train from Union Station, and arrive at the NF train station 11:40 am. You'd return from the Niagara Falls train station at 7:20 pm, catch the 9:50 pm GO bus to Brampton, and arrive at the Brampton Bus Terminal at 10:30 pm.)
You'd still have to factor in time to get to the Brampton Bus Terminal (or another stop, such as Shopper's World, on the GO Bus route) and time to get to Marineland from the NF train station (a local should be able to help with that).
You say "my mom doesn't know how to drive to Marineland" and that you have three adults -- could we perhaps help with driving directions that someone in your group could use to get you there by car?
From the bus/train stations in Niagara Falls, you can take the Falls Shuttle buses to Marineland.
If driving is possible, it is extremely easy to get to Marineland: QEW to Niagara Falls, exit at McLeod Rd. E. (left at the ramp traffic light). Follow McLeod Rd. about a mile and it magically changes into Marineland Parkway. Marineland is just a little farther on the right.
....It states that an adult in their ticket fares are 12+ so I'm actually 14. -_- and my friend is 14.
nd my sister is 3 years old.
Hmmm, I see your dilemma... looks like MATTINTO has given you a workable solution via public transit (but it sure will make for a long day).
Yes, I didn't mean to suggest anyone who's 14 should do the driving... :)
It would be a very long and boring trip by transit, so I still think you'd have a lot more fun that day if you could find someone who could drive you.
