After a fraudulent ticket scheme involving Canada’s Wonderland has been circulating online, the park is advising the public to be wary of discounted ticket deals.

Grace Peacock, Director of Communications, said that the park is aware of the fraudulent ticket scheme currently circulating online.

The ticket scam asks people to click on a link which then sends them to a web page to complete an online survey.

“You have been selected to take part in our short survey to get 5 Free Canada’s Wonderland Tickets! We only have 212 tickets remaining so hurry up!” the web page says.

Once the survey is complete, the user is told to share the webpage and click on the like button. Afterward, five free tickets are offered.

But this isn’t the first time this has happened to the park. A previous scheme circulated on WhatsApp.

“These ticket offers and websites are not authorized by Canada’s Wonderland. We caution people to be wary of discounted ticket deals from individuals, third-party websites, apps or social media,” said Peacock.

Peacock encourages the public to only purchase tickets from the park’s official website, at the park’s front gate or with authorized ticket dealers.

Authorized ticket dealers include Costco, Perkopolis, and Venngo.

Peacock told Daily Hive Toronto that Canada’s Wonderland takes ticket fraud very seriously and that if anyone has any concerns about the validity of their ticket or a dealer they should call Guest Services at 905-832-8131.
