  1. Today in Wonderland News, they plan to use the lot as a mass vaccination site. The only problem is, they need to get a hold of the vaccine first. https://www.google.ca/amp/s/beta.ctvnews.ca/local/toronto/2021/2/14/1_5309026.html
  2. The Toronto Blue Jays wanted to play in Toronto last year, heck the city and province of Ontario approved it but the feds said no mainly because they wanted to be difficult. A stadium that has a hotel literally attached to it should be a slam dunk, it can quarantine the players from the outside world. Sometimes the best way you can describe Canada, is that it is difficult for the sake of being difficult. And let’s be honest, the closure of the US border has been a total dream for many Canadians. Nothing else in the history of Canada’s existence closed that border. Also, the extreme r
  3. It doesn’t matter if Wonderland is #1 in the chain, or even #1 in the entire world, the fact of the matter is, when you’re closed you can’t make any revenue whatsoever and you’re worth as much as the worst rinky dink amusement parks out there. Should Wonderland defy these orders, the police will be after extremely swiftly and lay huge fines and threaten to imprison all the associates, while they let typical crime run its course. On top of that is completely botched vaccine rollout, and as I said, if Wonderland opens up by that bold date, I’ll eat my underwear.
  4. The park has to open first, and despite their bold announcement of an opening date. The government has the ultimate say if it will open or not. Based on previous attitudes of the government here, if Wonderland actually does open on time, I'll eat my underwear. Honestly, I'm starting to think Cedar Fair is better off to just "cash out" and sell the land to condo developers, as government has openly made it hostile to do business here.
  5. So as we saw, Wonderland did not have a single day open this summer. Yet in Niagara Falls, Clifton Hill, a glorified permanent midway of sorts was full of people this Labour Day Weekend: https://www.narcity.com/news/ca/on/toronto/clifton-hill-crowds-this-weekend-are-leading-to-a-protest-to-reopen-wonderland The article of course suggests that there is a protest happening for Wonderland to reopen. This is how I personally see things, if the government allows museums, zoos, even Ripley's Aquarium in downtown Toronto to reopen, than why can't Canada's Wonderland open,
  6. Well, renovating a ride, in the grand scheme of things, isn’t that much the same kind of thing as building a new ride? I don’t know much about RMC, but I believe when it comes to redesigning the ride, that can easily happen. A Canadian construction company would have to do the actual work in constructing the ride. I mean RMC has renovated rides in other countries haven’t they? I could be wrong, but as it stands, except for some water slides in Splash Works or Triotech’s involvement with Wonder Mountain Guardian, there is not one Canadian ride manufacturer in Canada’s Wonderland.
  7. When did I say that? If I mentioned any kind of law, I’m referring to the COVID-19 situation in which basically all non essential travel into Canada is forbidden for all non Canadians. In normal times, I don’t think this would be much of a problem.
  8. Somewhat, but what makes Vaughan different is that Vaughan is immediately north of the City of Toronto (which by itself is huge in area), Vaughan was known for many years with this slogan "The City ABOVE Toronto". Distance wise, Kings Island is roughly 24 miles from the downtown core of Cincy, while in Toronto's case, Wonderland is 18 miles away from the downtown core. By distance wise, I'm looking moreso at the shortest distance between the two spots. This is important to discuss because I-71 passes by both Kings Island and downtown Cincy, while Hwy 400 which passes by Wonderland DOES NO
  9. Yeah, I guess you’re right, it’s just I always get into arguments with someone who claims that wonderland will become condos in the future. So when have you visited Wonderland, and how many times have you visited? It has been said that the overall planning focus in the Greater Toronto Area changed when Wonderland was built, they originally wanted to develop more east of the city, but Wonderland made them develop more north of the city. As for hitting a condo building nearby....it’s not that bad yet lol, when walking inside the park, you do feel like you are isolated from the rea
  10. In the case of the Toronto Blue Jays, both the city itself and the province of Ontario actually agreed to their plan, but the federal government did not. At the time, I thought it was a great plan because the Blue Jays play in a stadium that has a hotel attached to it. Confine the players to the hotel and you should be good. We saw what happened in Florida and the sort of domino effect that happened with baseball, so maybe it wasn't such a good idea. Unless new cases numbers don't take a serious nosedive in the US, my guess is that the border will remain closed at least until next summer
  11. Probably a very small amount. What I was saying earlier was more into the regards of corporate cutting their losses with the pain of running a theme park in a different country.
  12. Wasn't Winterfest basically cancelled everywhere else because everyone is forecasting higher numbers when traditional flu season occurs? It wouldn't make much sense to run Winterfest here only in that sense either. Assuming the remaining bits of Ontario move into Phase 3 not this Friday but next Friday, and the park is given the go ahead to open, here's a few things you have to consider even in that best case scenario. Sure, Wonderland has most likely hired an on call staff, but wouldn't there need to be a few dry runs of social distancing among the staff before opening. Let's just a
  13. Most of the province of Ontario is under Stage 3 of reopening, the last stage in the reopening phases, and not mentioned was when Canada's Wonderland could reopen. While the powers that be in the Ontario government hinted that Wonderland could possibly open when all of Ontario enters Stage 3, I'll believe it when I see it. By that point, there won't even be much of a season worth salvaging. Let us also remember that Ontario's caseload and deaths is lightyears ahead of that in Ohio, and I'm not saying this to brag or to say snide remarks but to simply state facts. We have recently entered
  14. Although the Canada/US border is mutually closed to citizens of the other country in both cases, it’s Canada who wants to keep it going and sadly I thought I’d never agree with a border closure as long as I lived. A border closure has never occurred as long as Canada existed as a sovereign nation, except for a day long closure of the US border on 9/11. That being said, if the US cases were substantially lower, think 2,000 new cases a day on average, then probably the border would reopen. But it’s the high numbers solely that’s causing countries around the world to bar Americans.
  15. Chuck Woollery, what a shame. I do remember him fondly from Greed, a very good game show that was highly underrated. Many saw it simply as a Millionaire rip off but it was much more enjoyable to watch. It adds a lot of other dynamics to it which Millionaire didn’t have, but I digress. I think many thought it would be over by the summer because they were banking on the last time we were through this, especially here in Toronto. I’m talking about SARS in 2003. During SARS, it broke out around the same time as COVID-19 did and just disappeared by the time summer rolled around. There w
