The big thrills of riding the Yukon Striker or Behomoth at Canada’s Wonderland this summer will have to wait.

With the current lockdown across the province in effect until May 20 and the likelihood that it will be extended, the popular amusement park, located in Vaughan, announced Tuesday the postponement of its opening date because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Safety is our number one priority and we’ve developed a reopening plan that meets all required health and safety regulations,” Wonderland said in a statement on its website. “This plan is currently with Ontario’s Science Advisory Table and we await further guidance on our opening date.”

The park says it is continuing to prepare for this summer and is looking forward to providing “some long-awaited fun in a safe, outdoor environment.”

“We anticipate that in the coming weeks, we’ll have details to share about an early to mid-summer opening date,” the statement said.

Due to the delayed opening, Wonderland is extending the validity of all current 2020/2021 season passes through to Labour Day of 2022.
