Hyatt to open in Canadian theme park

The hotel will offer 203 rooms on the site of Wonderland amusement park near Toronto, opening in 2020.

A Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel will open in Canada's Wonderland amusement park near Toronto in Vaughan, Ontario in 2020.

The eight-storey hotel will be located 15 miles from Toronto Pearson International Airport. It will feature an indoor pool, 24-hour fitness center, coffee and cocktails bar, casual dining options, business centre, flexible meeting and event spaces, and an outdoor sun deck.

Cedar Fair president and CEO Richard Zimmerman said: "The new dual-branded Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel will continue Cedar Fair's significant investment in Canada's Wonderland, one of the portfolio's largest and most successful parks.

"We expect strong attendance growth there, driven by the introduction of a new record-breaking roller coaster, Yukon Striker, and addition of an immersive holiday event, WinterFest, both launching in 2019."

Scott Richer, Hyatt's regional vice president of development for Canada, added: "We're thrilled to team up with the team at Cedar Fair Entertainment Company – we're confident the appeal and convenience of these two brands will meet the needs of guests visiting Canada's Wonderland and the growing city of Vaughan."
