Wonderland Lagos, the amusement park, has reacted after a guest was reported to have died at its facility.


The Lagos state government had earlier suspended activities at the facility in Eko Energy City after the fun seeker was reported to have been electrocuted on Christmas Day.

But in a statement on Tuesday, the park said the case involving the guest was not reported to its management.

“A video of a parent’s complaint has come to the attention of the management team of Wonderland Lagos at Eko Energy City, regarding a supposed open wire incident and other safety concerns,” the statement reads.


“Before Wonderland Lagos opened its doors, a risk assessment was conducted by Lagos state after which the entertainment city began to function.

“While we provide spaces for various vendors, regular safety checks are conducted periodically to ensure that our vendors are adhering to our rules, regulations, and safety policies.

“The supposed unfortunate incident was never reported to Wonderland Lagos officials and was brought to our attention via social media.


“We jumped into action immediately to review our procedures and conduct our own investigations which are still ongoing.”

Wonderland also disclosed that the state government officials will be conducting another safety assessment, after which it looks to reopen its doors to guests.

It also added that no life was lost in the incident.

“We can assure the public that no lives have been lost at Wonderland Lagos, our safety policies are intact,” the park said.


“The safety and leisure of our customers is our topmost priority, and we are working with all of our vendors as well as Lagos State, to ensure that Wonderland Lagos is a safe space for all of our children and families.

“We have now requested another risk assessment to be conducted by Lagos state and after a successful approval, we will re-open.”
