History

The name "Wonderland" originates with the old Wonderland Amusement Park, which operated at the site from 1906 to 1911. The station was originally not meant to be the northern terminus, which was going to be located in Lynn; however, due to budgetary constraints, it became the northern terminus. Plans are now under discussion to extend Blue Line service to Lynn. Options include creating a new stop on the commuter rail for transfers at Wonderland, along with two other options which would include actually extending the line.[1]

The station was closed for approximately one year starting on June 25, 1994, as the station was rebuilt. The Blue Line temporarily ended at Orient Heights and buses served the closed stations during the $467 million improvement project to upgrade four stations on the line. The station officially re-opened on June 24, 1995.[2]

The title of the 1998 film Next Stop Wonderland refers to this station.
