Know Before You Go

Health and safety tips to make your 2020 visit safe and FUN

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

July 14-17: Season Passholder Previews - Limited Operations/Limited Capacity
July 18: Opening Day

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.

The way we will operate this summer is significantly different from what we are all used to as we adapt to the new landscape created by 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 note that rides, attractions, food, retail and game stands are subject to change and may vary depending on weather, staffing changes, or unexpected maintenance issues.*

Planning a Visit

  • If the date you wish to visit is not listed in our online calendar, we may have already reached our capacity limit for that date, in which case you will need to choose another day. If you are looking for a date later in the summer, please check back again as we will open more dates as the summer progresses.

All Season Passes purchased by July 6, 2020 will include both the 2020 and 2021 seasons. Beginning July 7, 2020, Season Passes will only include the 2020 Season, however, there will be an option to extend them into 2021 for an additional fee.

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 2020 or 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.

No, Basic Season Passes are still limited to just the Summer Season.

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. We are no longer selling Dining Passes for the 2020 season.

Yes. All Season Passholders will receive the 2021 extension, regardless of when their final payment is made. We know finances are a challenge for some guests - please know we are not charging late fees for missed payments.

All Royalty Admission tickets, including our Leap Day Deal offer or other date-restricted tickets, will be valid through the entirety of the 2020 Summer Season. Guests with additional questions about their tickets can email to connect with our Guest Services staff.

Tickets are good any day of the 2020 Summer Season. Group Leaders should contact their Dutch Wonderland Group Sales representative directly to discuss options to reschedule early-season catered events.
