Canada’s Wonderland has opened its gates to the general public this morning. It has been nearly two years since the amusement and water parks were forced to close due to the pandemic. Step 2 of the provinces’ reopening plan gave the amusement park the green light to open, so they took it.
The park located in Vaughan, Ontario was shut down in December 2019 and as vaccination rates increase, Canada’s Wonderland can reopen with a 25 per cent capacity limit. Anyone wanting to go to the park will have to book a reservation beforehand. There are also many signs throughout notifying people of physical distancing rules. People will be required to wear a mask on most rides, indoor spaces, and areas where physical distancing is difficult.
Some of these new rules may actually result in longer wait times for rides. For example, each coaster will not be used at full capacity and workers have to routinely clean the seats. Canada’s Wonderland recalled about 3,000 seasonal staff ahead of this week’s reopening. Season pass holders were able to get a sneak preview earlier this week.
