MisterSG1 Posted August 6, 2020 Share Posted August 6, 2020 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 the third consecutive day of sub-100 new cases in this province, a province of 14,500,000 and one that would be the 5th largest state in population if it were a US state. It's important to know that Ontario has tread incredibly lightly in this matter. Ohio has mostly had days with new cases above 1,000 since the beginning of July. However, this got me thinking about the future of the park itself., just south of Rutherford Road on Jane Street, there is a new condo building which broke ground. The units in that building started from "the low $500s", consider this, if single condo units sell for that much, how much of a gold mine is Wonderland currently sitting on? As there is a metaphorical brick wall now on the "world's longest undefended border", a barrier which won't be eased anytime soon, this prevents corporate from even accessing Wonderland, or Wonderland's higher ups from going to Cedar Fair corporate. As well as a provincial government which has been extremely cautious with reopening (and most citizens here support the restrictions), at what point does Cedar Fair simply "cash out". The land itself is probably worth more than what Cedar Fair ever invested in the park, I'm sure the greedy developers would love to get their greasy hands on that prime land. As the land value should go up even higher around this area due to a new nearby subway station, as well as large developments near that subway station. Maybe Cedar Fair should consider selling the land entirely? 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
