Some rides may close due to weather conditions, particularly heavy rain, high winds and/or lightning. Most attractions and rides remain open despite light rain. Closed rides reopen as soon as safely possible. Check the weather forecast before visiting the park, as rainchecks are not issued.
You must be 19 years of age to purchase, possess or consume alcoholic beverages in the province of Ontario. A valid photo I.D. (a driver's license or age of majority card) is required. Bringing alcohol onto Canada’s Wonderland property or leaving the park with alcohol purchased at the park is strictly prohibited. Provincial law also prohibits consumption of alcoholic beverages outside of licensed establishments within the park as well as in the parking lots, regardless of being in a vehicle.
Cash machines are located at the park entrance, at Cyber Central in Medieval Faire, in the Palace in KidZville, at the Splash Surf Shop in Splash Works and at the Backlot Cafe in Grand World Exposition of 1890.
Two Baby Care Centres are available for your convenience. Located beside First Aid in Medieval Faire and the other is in the Palace in KidZville. Each centre provides a place for private nursing and refrigerated storage for baby formula. Bottles may be warmed at the First Aid Centre and at any of the park's sit-down restaurants. Diaper changing facilities are available in most of the park’s restrooms.
In general, it is not the best practice to take carry-on items on a ride as they may be lost or stolen. However, many rides provide storage bins to stow these items throughout your ride. Some rides may even accommodate items on the ride itself, but these rides are very limited.
MasterCard, VISA, American Express, Interac Direct Payment, and US and Canadian traveler’s cheques, are gladly accepted for admission and most purchases. Currency can be exchanged at guest services, just inside the entrance.
The best choice for attire when visiting the park is comfortable clothing (cotton is usually best). Choose broken in, comfortable shoes, and remember to be prepared for the forcasted weather. An extra change of clothes is a good idea as well since wet clothes are not the most comfortable all day long!
The main First Aid Centre is located in Medieval Faire beside Spinovator. Two other first aid stations are located inside Splash Works. Each station is equipped with trained personnel and emergency supplies. The main centre also has facilities for warming bottles, privacy for nursing, and refrigerated storage for guests’ medications. Security personnel are also trained in basic first aid.
Guests with disabilities should stop by Guest Services to pick up a Guide for Guests With Disabilities before venturing into the park. This free guide explains the ride entry guidelines and procedures, provides specific information related to each attraction, and includes an Attraction Boarding Pass now required for the special access accommodations.
Special parking areas are available with proper ID.

Only items that can be safely secured in pockets or a waist pack may be taken on rides. Pockets must fasten with Velcro, a button or a zipper and waist packs should fasten tightly and have a zipper closure. All other items must be left in a locker, vehicle, with a non-rider, or at the owner's risk on the ride platform . However, Canada’s Wonderland is not responsible for items lost, damaged or stolen. Some rides may not allow loose articles to be left on ride platforms. Glasses must be secured with a strap. For safety reasons, picture taking and videotaping are strictly prohibited while on rides.
The park provides a Lost Parents centre, located next to Silver Streak in Kidzville. Lost children should approach any park employee and security personnel will be alerted to reunite parents and children. Parents may also notify the Lost Parents centre in order to facilitate a park search.
One person (age 18 or over) may wait with a child near the exit while the remainder of the party enters the line. When the party has exited the ride, the non-rider waiting with the child may enter through the exit and ride. Boarding Passes may be obtained at Guest Services (at the main gate).

Pets are not allowed in the Park. However, pets are welcomed at their very own air-conditioned kennel located at Front Gate. The fee is relatively cheap to board your pet but walking and feeding are the responsibility of the pet owner. All pets must be picked up prior to park closing.
Cameras and camcorders may not be used at some park attractions. To ensure public safety, you may be requested to display the contents of any package, parcel or item in your possession. Refusal of entry may result for non-compliance.

Service animals demonstrating aggressive behaviour may be required to exit the park.
Smoking is permitted only in the designated smoking areas, which are indicated on park maps. All restaurants, shops, theatres, washrooms, indoor facilities and ride queues are entirely smoke free.
