A “minor structure fire” broke out around 10:45 p.m. on Sunday, according to a statement from the park.

After the park closed around 6 p.m., all customers and employees were evacuated from affected areas, according to a statement.


No one was hurt and the source of the blaze is being probed by emergency responders.

The park was evacuated “as a precaution” due to billowing smoke, according to York Regional Police on Twitter.

On the west side of the waterpark, there was a “pump house” structure, which appears to have sparked the blaze before spreading to a slide and a few trees.


Fireworks may have sparked the incident, according to a spokeswoman.

This year’s concert at Canada’s Wonderland was confirmed to have taken place around 10 p.m., but the park’s cause is still under investigation.
