Canada’s Wonderland has postponed its 2021 opening date because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The park had set May 14 as a tentative day to let people back in but it’s still not allowed to open because of provincial restrictions.

It’s now aiming for an early to mid-summer opening date.

“We continue to prepare for a 2021 reopening and look forward to welcoming guests back to Canada’s Wonderland this summer for some long-awaited fun in a safe, outdoor environment,” the park said in a release.

Because of the delay, all current 2020-2021 season passes are being extended through to Labour Day 2022.

The park said it has a reopening plan that meets all required health and safety regulations and that it’s been presented to the Ontario Science Advisory table.

It includes having all patrons wear masks at all times, except on water rides.

Canada’s Wonderland has served as a COVID-19 vaccine testing site in York Region for the last month or so.
