Wicked Wonderland is the seventh studio album by American rock-musician Lita Ford and her first of new material in almost 15 years.

Ford said about the album: "Everybody has their own 'Wicked Wonderland'. It's a place where you can do whatever you want and get as freaky as you feel. These songs are my version of that - they're all about my life…well, the parts that happen when the kids are in bed and my husband and I get into the boudoir."(...)"This is definitely the heaviest stuff I’ve ever recorded. I've evolved and matured as a person and so has my music. It’s lyrically very real."[3] In her 2016 memoir, Ford disowned the album.[4]

In October, 2009 the album also was released as limited edition vinyl LP, with modified track listing (without two last songs as well as with different track order) and different artwork.[5]

In popular culture[edit]

The track "Betrayal" is one of the 108 songs that appear in the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 video game, Brütal Legend, to which Lita also contributed her likeness and voice to the character "Rima, Queen of the Zaulia".[6] The track is featured as background music for one of the cutscenes in the game's story mode, and can be played on the in-game radio once unlocked.
