Canada's Wonderland tickets were apparently in hot demand yesterday.

On Monday, the beloved amusement park announced its reopening plans for the first full week of July, as the province is expected to move to step two of the reopening plan on July 2.

Season pass-holders can hit up Wonderland ahead of everyone on July 5 and 6, with the general public coming through on July 7.

Wonderland reservations launched June 17, right at 9:00 a.m., where anyone could book a day pass or season passes either on the park's website or via their mobile app.

It was apparently a stressful start to some people's day as many residents made a mad-dash to the website to secure tickets.

Ontarians have had to use online booking systems in the past for COVID-19 vaccinations. While one Ontarian compared waiting for a vaccine booking to the Hunger Games, one Twitter user thought getting Wonderland tickets was harder.

There were apparently some technical difficulties for season pass holders booking second reservations or registering their passes online. Canada's Wonderland confirmed to Narcity that, "early yesterday we did have an issue where, in some cases, Season Passholders were unable to book their second visit. This issue was resolved by noon on Thursday."

Wonderland made reservations mandatory prior to entering the park in order to maintain and manage the park's capacities.

The park is also requiring one member of every group to download the Wonderland mobile app with location services turned on, so everyone can look out for real-time updates that day on the park.

Wonderland did confirm to Narcity that it was a busy day. "The first day of reservations was a busy one with passholders and daily ticket holders all booking their return visits to the park. We had consistent activity on the system since we launched yesterday at 9am," read the statement.

If anyone needs to update their reservations, the park tweeted a link for followers to use. For cancellations, guests are asked to contact Guest Services.* Cancellations will be added back to the inventory, so if anyone couldn't make a booking for the day they originally wanted, keep a lookout!
