The park operating hours are now out. Opening May 3!

 

Clicky

Why is Opening Day on Sunday at CW? Is Sunday a more significant day than Saturday in Canada, or is there some other reason? Sorry if I sound dumb.

 

Actually, yes. More people tend to do their leisure activities on Sundays (at least where I am in Southern Ontario, anyways). In some areas it's even the busier day for grocery stores and what not. I'm not sure why they wouldn't open on the Saturday though, if only to take advantage of the extra operating day at a time when they are only open on weekends... I mean, as nicman mentioned above, it's been Sunday for years, but now that you mention it, it actually is a good question as to why Sunday.

 

It has been Sunday since at least 2002 when I first started visiting the park. I belive the reason is because one of the major 6 banks in Canada rents out the entire park, usually TD or Scotia. The weekend before opening day is also often rented out. For whatever reason it is always the Saturday before opening thats rented.

 

I think you're right. For as long as I can remember, RBC rents out the park on the Saturday.

While not completely related to the operation of Canada's Wonderland, the park was used in a completely different way earlier this week to keep a tradition alive due to current COVID-19 restrictions i

Go to CW site.  Click to buy something like a season pass.  You'll see it in the popup transaction window.  Under 2021 Season Pass -> 2021 Add Ons.  

Can confirm, CF doesn't care which park you go to first with your paper voucher for a Platinum Pass.  You'll get your photo taken and be issued a card that has whatever park you go to first on the bac

^ You guys are absolutely right. Now that you mention it, I've been told that before that the banks rent out the park before opening day. Apparently I need to make friends with someone at RBC lol

I randomly went to a BMO day at Wonderland one year. I showed up early to process my season pass and saw the rides running. I asked if the park was open and if I could go in. They said sure, so I went in and was surrounded by "BMO Day" signs.

 

There were no lines, but I was terrified of being kicked out, so I did a quick lap and then left.

If I buy a Cedar Fairs Platinum Pass online from Canada's Wonderland can I use it at another Cedar Fairs park before I get to Canada's Wonderland?

 

Pretty sure you can get those processed at any Cedar Fair park.

You must purchase and process at the same park. If you purchase your pass at CW and expect to process it at Cedar Point, you'll be turned away. This is true of Six Flags, SeaWorld, and other chains as well.

I just keep thinking the trains look very odd! (tall and thin). Anyway, it's nice that it (seemed) to have some pops of air as most B&M standups don't.

Wow, I never knew that, I always thought that if you buy a platinum pass, you can go to any park without being at the park that you got the platinum pass from.

You can, but it's a bit of a hassle. We had to process a Platinum Pass that we purchased for Kings Dominion last year at Cedar Point, and management worked with us to make it happen. It was a process, but they can do it.

^ Agreed.

 

We did it twice during renewal after originally purchasing PP's from Cedar Point - one year at Knotts and one year at Kings Dominion.

 

That is one disadvantage over purchasing from a park like CP or CW...the parks open later than the ones in the South or out West so if you vacation to one of those areas before the Northern parks open in mid-May, it can be a bit of a challenge to process.

This image just appeared on the Cavallino Matto Facebook. Looks likes Skyrider has a nice new paintjob.

Looks great, I am still glad to see that Skyrider is moving to a new park rather than getting rid of it.
