May 14 Reopening date at Canada's Wonderland

According to the park, guests will have to schedule their visit in advance on their website or mobile app before arriving.

Masks are required for all visitors aged two years and older (unless you're on a water ride), and guests will have their temperature checked before they can enter.

While inside, there will be hand sanitizer stations and plenty of markers to help enforce the two-metre physical distancing rules. 

Some of the rides and areas that aren't conducive to physical distancing will be closed, according to the company's website, and visitors can check which attractions are open or closed via the mobile app.

Canada's Wonderland is asking people to use contactless forms of payment, and they require one person from each visiting group to have a phone with the park's mobile app on it with location services enabled.

The company says it will clean washrooms frequently, as well as removing tables and adding plastic barriers to the park's dining facilities.

The full list of new rules can be found on the company's website.

However, after Wonderland's announcement, Ontario's Tourism Minister, Lisa MacLeod, states that it is "far too early" to speculate when COVID-19 restrictions will loosen for theme parks.*
