One of the worst customer service experiences ever. I tried to bring it to the attention of management, but radio silence. Don't think they give two hoots about their customers. I would never visit this place again and would not recommend it to anyone.

"Park is great!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 09, 2020 NEW
Canada's Wonderland is a really great park to spend time with family, kids! We always buy pass for summer time since we go there few times a season. Park is huge with a lot of different rides, activities, etc. Area is a pretty green. Splash area is amazing! Winterfest is also nice! Only 2 concerns ;) - it is not cheap, for example Winterfest you need to pay for every single activity ... and parking could be cheaper as well (summer & winter both) - big lines, do not go there on the summer weekends after 12pm - it's crazy. Weekday or 10am-12pm in the weekend is good. We live 10 min from the park, so we just go there often for max 2-3hrs, so it's ok for us. But when people are coming from different areas and staying there all day - can not imagine, it's a stress, not relax time.

"Don't go without a Fast Pass Plus!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 07, 2020 NEW
This place is expensive! And it is even more expensive with the Fast Pass Plus but in my opinion TOTALLY worth it IF you plan to ride the big kid rides all day. We've gone without it in the past and we regretted it and so will you! My family and I always come here during the week in June. It is the quietest time of the year and cheaper than the summer months. I always book our tickets in advanced - the ride and fast pass plus bundle - and get about $100 off by doing so for my family of 6. We come here to get on as many rides as possible and the fast pass makes that possible. Hardly any time is spent waiting in line. We have a BLAST!! Our kids range in age from 11 to 16 and no ride is off limits. And hubby and I are just as ride crazy...so this place is perfect for us! Our favorite rides are: The Yukon Striker - Hands down our family favorite! Don't let the steep drops scare you. This ride has the most comfortable and secure harness out of all the rides at Wonderland. Backlot Stunt Coaster - LOVE this very fast ride. It's perfect for those of us who don't love heights. Just make sure you are facing forward at takeoff! The Bat - A classic! Scary but fun. Behemoth - The big hills and drops make you feel weightless! You'll be screaming and laughing all the way! Psyclone - A huge pendelum type ride. Perfect for cooling off on a hot day. The Lumberjack - Replaced the old Jet Scream. Sit in the row facing out for the scariest ride. We go on most of the big kid rides but these are our favorites. We don't do the water park. Pizza Pizza is the most economical choice with our big family. We buy a whole pizza and it is a great value for us. We also buy ONE refillable bottle and that keeps our entire family hydrated all day. Have fun!

My first time visiting Canada’s wonderland and it was great. We ended up buying fast passes, they are a but pricey but totally worth it. Instead of standing in que for 30-60 min per ride we had at most 15 minutes. We prepaid the parking so getting in to the park was easy as well.

What is the Boarding Pass Program?
The Boarding Pass Program assists guests with mobility restrictions or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) by allowing them to access rides at designated times via the exit ramp. The program works as follows:

  • Guests with a mobility impairment or ASD should visit Guest Services upon their arrival at the park to express his/her inability to wait in the regular line. Some questions are asked to ensure that the rider has the required physical criteria in order to safely experience rides, and a Boarding Pass is issued for the guest in question and up to 3 riding companions. 
  • In addition to a Boarding Pass, the guest with a mobility impairment or ASD will receive a “Rider Access Form” that lists the rides that the guest with a disability can safely enjoy.
  • The rider (or a member of their party) obtains a boarding time from the ride associate at the Alternate Access Entrance, equivalent to the length of the ride line. The rider can then wait comfortably away from the queue area.
  • The guest listed on the Boarding Pass must be present as a rider when a Boarding Pass is being utilized. 
  • Guests may not accumulate more than one boarding time at a time.

Can I go on the rides if I am wearing a cast?
Guests wearing casts and braces may be restricted from rides where the cast/brace will not fit inside the ride unit or where it will present a hazard to the guest or others. Guests with full arm (elbow restricted) and full leg (knee restricted) casts or braces are restricted from most rides and water slides at Canada’s Wonderland.
  • Braces with exposed metal parts are not permitted on select slides in Splash Works.
  • Casts of any kind are not allowed on Behemoth, Launch Pad, Leviathan, Muskoka Plunge, Sledge Hammer, Soaring Timbers, Super Soaker, and The Plunge.
