The Wonderland Amusement Park operated from 1906 to 1911 in Revere, Massachusetts. Wonderland featured various roller coasters and rides. The park closed for financial reasons in 1911, and the Wonderland Greyhound Park opened on the site in 1935, before its own closure in 2009.

The park was served by the Boston, Revere Beach and Lynn Railroad, known as the "Narrow Gauge". Today, the rail stop is named Wonderland, and is the northern terminus of the MBTA's Blue Line. The title of the 1998 film Next Stop Wonderland refers to this station.

Wonderland is a few hundred feet from Revere Beach, the first public beach in the United States.
