Tips to make your visit to Dutch Wonderland safe & FUN!

We are so excited to welcome you and your family back to Dutch Wonderland!

We want you to know the health and safety of our Guests and Team Members is our top priority. We are fully committed to creating the cleanest and safest environment possible for your visit.

As we begin the Summer 2021 season, we will continue to modify our operations to best protect our staff and visitors from COVID-19. While we are committed to enhanced standards in an effort to keep you as healthy and safe as possible, there remains an inherent and elevated risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place and any place where people are present. Please, read this page fully to ensure the best experience possible as you plan your visit and join us.

Please also review our Operating Calendar for the most recent updates on our modified operational dates.

Planning a Visit

In order to comply with key health and safety measures surrounding limiting capacity, social distancing, and touch-free payment, planning a visit to Dutch Wonderland will look different this summer.

  • In accordance with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to maximize protection from the Delta variant and prevent possibly spreading it to others, wear a mask indoors in public if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission. Those not fully vaccinated should wear a mask at all times, except while eating, drinking or on a water ride.

Guests should familiarize themselves with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and evaluate their risk in determining whether they should attend our facilities. If you or a family member are ill or think that you may be getting ill, please postpone your visit until you are well.

By visiting our facility, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

While we are committed to enhanced standards in an effort to keep you as healthy and safe as possible, there remains an inherent and elevated risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place and any place where people are present. People who do not show symptoms can still spread COVID-19. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and persons with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable and at higher risk for severe illness. Guests should familiarize themselves with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and evaluate their risk in determining whether they should visit our facilities. If you or a member of your household are ill or think you may be getting ill, or you have been in contact with someone diagnosed or suspected of having COVID-19, please postpone your visit until you are well.

By visiting our facility, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

Dutch Wonderland reserves the right to require a Guest to leave if the Guest is (i) using profanity, offensive or threatening language towards our Team Members or other Guests and/or (ii) violating any other Park Rules.

Can I purchase a 2020-21 Season Pass?

All 2020 Season Passes will include both the 2020 and 2021 seasons, with the exception of the Summer Saver Pass which is valid through Sept. 7, 2020.

Are the 2021 seasonal holiday events included with this extension?

Each 2020 Season Passholder will receive the identical Season Pass, with the same benefits, in 2021. This means passholders will be able to use their Premium Season Passes for the 2021 seasonal holiday events (Happy Hauntings and Dutch Winter Wonderland) as well.

Basic Season Passes will include the 2021 Summer Season, but will not include seasonal holiday events in 2021. The Basic Pass is still a summer season-only pass. This extension also applies to add-on products like the All Summer Dining Pass.

What about All Summer Dining Plans?

Our plan is to ensure you receive equal value for any experience or benefit you missed out on this year due to COVID-19, such as the All Summer Dining Pass. All Summer Dining Passes and other add-ons will also be valid through the end of the 2021 Summer Season. Please note, the All Summer Dining Pass will not be valid during Happy Hauntings or Dutch Winter Wonderland.

Will I receive a refund on my pre-purchased admission tickets?

All Royalty Admission tickets, including our Leap Day Deal offer or other date-restricted tickets, will be valid through the entirety of the 2021 Summer Season. Guests with additional questions about their tickets can email infodw@dutchwonderland.com to connect with our Guest Services staff.

I had a School Picnic or Group Event scheduled for early in the season. What now?

Tickets are good any day of the 2021 Summer Season. Group Leaders should contact their Dutch Wonderland Group Sales representative directly to discuss options to reschedule early-season catered events.

Costume masks are not considered appropriate and are prohibited. Face shields are not permitted on any attractions and are not a substitute for a facial covering. Face shields are permitted within the park when worn with an acceptable facial covering.

Guests are required to remove facial coverings while on water attractions (Pipeline Plunge and Duke's Lagoon), in complying with water safety best practices. We recommend bringing a seal-able plastic bag to store your facial covering in if you plan to enjoy these attractions. Guests may also remove their masks while eating or drinking.
