Canada's Wonderland's booking system plagued by long lines, technical difficulties

Jun 17 2021, 1:43 pm

Even Ontario’s virtual lines are long.

Canada’s Wonderland opened its new online reservation system on Thursday morning, through which all visits for the 2021 season must be booked.

With the park having been closed since 2019, there proved to be quite a few people hoping to ride a rollercoaster this summer.

From long virtual queues to technical difficulties, would-be thrill-seekers lamented the booking process on social media.

Canada’s Wonderland revealed the new booking system on Monday as part of its reopening plans for the summer.

The amusement park aims to open on July 5 for those who hold season passes, and on July 7 for the general public. Splash Works will reopen on July 12.

To accommodate COVID-19 capacity restrictions, all guests are required to reserve their visit through the online system in advance.

Canada’s Wonderland’s eventual reopen is tied to Ontario moving into Step 2 of its own COVID-19 reopening plan.

The province entered Step 1 on June 11 and will need to wait at least 21 days before a potential move can be made.
