Dutch Wonderland is getting ready to open for the summer season and I'm excited to once again be partnering with them as a Royal Ambassador this year!  We're planning a visit for the first weekend in June, but the Lancaster, Pennsylvania amusement park opens to guests May 15.  Dutch Wonderland has long been a family favorite with plenty of choices for the youngest guests.  I have many fond memories of visiting as a child and have cherished the memories I've made with my own kids in recent years.

Check out 5 tips for having a Dutch Wonder-ful Day from our 2019 visit!

Dutch Wonderland COVID Safety

Safety is first and foremost on the minds of many families planning summer travel.  There are a few things to note about planning your visit to Dutch Wonderland this summer which align with COVID safety practices common among most theme parks across the country right now.  First, guests will need to pre-purchase tickets and make a park reservation.  This will help control capacity and make social distancing easier to manage.  Even though you'll spend the majority of your day outside at Dutch Wonderland, guests are required to wear a face mask (ages 2 and over) and practice social distancing.  You'll also find park employees masked up for the season.  If you're heading over to the water area, Duke's Lagoon (one of our favorites!), masks are not required in the water areas.  

You can also expect to see hand sanitizing stations around the park and signage reminding everyone of COVID safety practices.  Markers in ride lines and some plexiglass barriers (where approrpriate) have also been added.  Guests should also self-monitor ahead of their visit and stay home if they are symptomatic.  

What are we most excited about at Dutch Wonderland??

My six year old son and I are planning an early June visit and he has been talking about it non-stop!  He is finally big enough and brave enough to ride Merlin's Mayhem - which opened at the park in 2019 as a fantastic new roller coaster.  Duke's Lagoon is also one of his favorite places to cool off on a hot day so hopefully it will be warm enough to splash and play for a few hours that day.  We have been visiting Dutch Wonderland for years across the summer months, Happy Hauntings, and Winter Wonderland.  It's one of his favorite places and he can't wait to make more Dutch Wonder-ful memories this year!
