Canada's Wonderland amusement park in Vaughan is set to open for the 2021 season July 7.
With step two of Ontario's reopening framework, outdoor amusement parks are permitted to reopen, with a limited capacity.
Season pass holders will be given a preview of the park on July 5 and 6, before it open to the public on the 7.
Splash Works opens July 12 and reservations to both the park and water park will be required for all guests. Reservations for visits will open June 17 at 9 a.m. on Wonderland's website and mobile application.
"We are looking forward to reopening the park and we're ready to provide safe, fun and unforgettable experiences to all our guests," Norm Pirtovshek, general manager of Canada's Wonderland, said.
"Safety has and will always be Canada's Wonderland's No. 1 priority, and that includes the health of our guests and associates. With our new protocols in place, we are eager to offer some long-overdue fun to our guests," Pirtovshek said.
Protocols the park will follow to ensure a safe and clean environment have been posted online.
These protocols include:
a new online reservation system, which requires each guest to have a reservation for their day of visit and time or arrival as part of the park’s plan to help manage capacity;
health screening and temperature checks for guests, associates and vendors prior to entering the park;
all guests ages two and older are required to wear a face covering in all areas, unless otherwise designated or while dining seated;
physical distancing markers throughout the park, including ride queues;
enhanced cleaning procedures, including additional deep cleaning and sanitization of restrooms, dining facilities and other park areas;
additional hand sanitation stations; and
capacity management throughout the park.
2021 season passes are on sale for $79.99 and are valid until Labour Day 2022.
New rides this summer include the Mountain Bay Cliffs in Splash Works, where guests can experiences the exhilaration of cliff jumping from a variety of heights into the water below -- the ultimate challenge being the highest peak at 7.5 m.
Also, Canada's Wonderland will debut the new Beagle Brigade Airfield ride which is an airplane ride in Planet Snoopy where young pilots can take an exciting flight.
