Purchase your Canada's Wonderland tickets and season passes online at canadaswonderland.com, at the front gate, or through authorized retailers advertised by the park. We recommended against purchases through any other party as Canada's Wonderland tickets are commonly a target for fraud.

Halloween Haunt requires a separate admission ticket, and is not included with regular admission or season passes.

Alcoholic Beverage Policy

There are several food locations that serve alcohol inside of Canada's Wonderland. Alcohol must be consumed within certain marked patios and buildings. Any guest under 30 will be asked for valid government photo ID. Any guest who shows signs of intoxication can be denied the sale of drinks and may be removed from the park.

Attire

Shoes and shirts must be worn at all times. Swimming attire must be covered. Inappropriate wear such as clothing that depicts obscene language/gestures and clothing that conceals identity is prohibited.

Because weather at Canada's Wonderland can vary throughout the season, it's always best to check the weather forecast before your visit so that you can dress properly.

Wear comfortable shoes as you'll be doing a lot of walking during your day!

Camp Spooky

Camp Spooky is a daytime event for kids in October. Halloween-themed activities are setup throughout Kidzville and Planet Snoopy, including trick-or-treating and pumpkin decorating.

Camp Spooky is free with park admission and runs during regular park hours.

Dining

Canada's Wonderland offers a wide variety of food. Visit the Canada's Wonderland Source Dining page for a full list of dining locations around the park.

Guests with special dietary needs may still have something for them as the park does its best to offer food that accommodate certain requirements, such as items free from milk, eggs, gluten, or meat. Visit the Special Dietary Needs page on the park's website for an up-to-date listing of available special meal items. Guests with severe food allergies are encouraged to contact guest services before their visit for information and options.

See the Meal Plan section on this page for details on all-day and all-season dining plans.

Fast Lane

Fast Lane is a skip-the-line program at Canada's Wonderland. Guests who purchase a Fast Lane wristband line up in a special Fast Lane queue at select rides. Because there are a limited number of Fast Lane wristbands sold per day, the Fast Lane queue is always shorter than the regular queue.

Fast Lane queues are marked by one-way doors with large Fast Lane signage. The Fast Lane queue is merged with the regular queue by a ride attendant at the entrance into the station or loading area. The ratio at which the two queues are merged at differ depending on the ride.

There are two types of Fast Lane: Regular and Plus. The only difference between the two is that Fast Lane Plus includes Behemoth, Leviathan, and typically the latest addition to the park, while regular Fast Lane does not.

First Aid

The Park's First Aid location is next to the washrooms in Medieval Faire, near Spinovator. This station is staffed by certified EMTs.

If you require medical assistance, notify a park employee who can have First Aid dispatched to your location.

FunPix

FunPix is an upcharge digital service that allows guests to collect and share pictures taken of them at the park, whether that be in front of Wonder Mountain by a photographer or by on-ride photo cameras.

Halloween Haunt

Halloween Haunt is a Halloween event that runs on select weekend dates in the fall. The park is transformed into one of Canada's largest Halloween attractions, with scare zones, mazes, live entertainment, and themed food.

Halloween Haunt runs after regular daytime hours (typically 7pm to midnight) and requires a separate admission ticket.

Height Check

To ensure a safe ride, guests must meet a specific height requirements.

Height check signs can be found at the entrance of every ride. These signs outline the height requirements for that ride and has physical lines that a guest can use to check their eligibility to ride.

Height Check Stations can be found on both sides of International Street. At these staffed stations, guests can be measured and given a color-coded wristband that identifies their height. If the Height Check Stations are closed, wristbands can be obtained at rides where the rider meets the height requirement.

Inclement Weather
