The coaster they most need is probably a good family wooden coaster from any firm.  A hypercoaster would also be a good fit.  It could probably be visible from the falls.

A hypercoaster would be hilarious. They could also do the Desperado thing where it needs to fill like 12 seats for them to send the train so they would only need like 2 dispatches per hour.

... actually just buy Desperado. It’s stupid, it’s huge and it sucks so it would work well here I feel. Total cohesion.

Edit: Please nobody take this post seriously and come here nerding out about track welds or something I don’t care. 😂

if they moved it to Canada, would they need to change out the I-Sux topper track?

Honestly I can’t believe they haven’t closed yet. They have a ton of land within walking distance of Niagara Falls that’s probably worth an unreal amount of money and they’re using it for a dying amusement park that nobody likes. It’s bigger than the entire Clifton Hill section of the tourist area of town. You could fit so many hotel rooms / casinos / whatever that it’s just insane to me that they own this much land within walking distance of the falls and they’re using it for... this.

I think it was John Holer's dream to build a park from scratch.  Since he passed in 2018 the family keeps it as he would have wished.  More money doesn't mean much when you have so much.  That park is like their home.  I think the family has great plans for the future and is not shy on investing a lot into the park.

I was actually at the park 2 days after John passed.  Several old employees were saying that John was a good man and boss to work for and that he loved his park so much.  I was told that they had been getting offers from Sea World and Disney to purchase the park.  But the park just isn't for sale.

Holy Jesus. Something in the water up here....

Now that I think about it, Disney could go for a two park resort, Fantasy Island is available and less than 15 min away. Just saying.

My god - someone get them a weed wacker, stat!

Random fact... Round Up weed killer and certain fertilizers are prohibited in Canada. Theyll buy some at a Home Depot in the US and Canadian Customs will make them bring it back.

Surprisingly they had a campground called "King Waldorfs" that apparently got sold, stayed at it once it was alright. Good for the price and for a night in the camper, didn't do the pool. Mostly walked around Niagara. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g154998-d252849-Reviews-King_Waldorf_s-Niagara_Falls_Ontario.html

Well apparently Marineland is closing for good after this week end.  The park will be up for sale for possible redevelopment.  

Did you purposely not include a link to where you got this info because its exactly one former employee claiming on his twitter that this is all happening with absolutely no actual evidence to back it up? 🤡

Isn't Marineland working with the City of Niagara to build the park up? I also thought I read the park is planning on opening some new rides?

and it's a disgruntled "whistle blower" who spends all his free time giving them shit about "freeing" their last original Orca.

Perhaps he's right?

 

but seriously, I trust the Dippin Dots pushcart stand operator more than this zero credibility guy who clearly has an axe to grind with the park.

Just let Cedar Fair buy it already, they know what to do.

Cedar Fair does not do animal parks. Plus Cedar Fair totally forgets about half the parks it currently owns and should not take on anymore parks or debt
