One can only hope.
EDIT: It's just occurred to me, that this could well be the start of the transformation of Playland. I mean, besides this happening (Corkscrew & Wave Swinger going gone), they will, for the first time, start charging seniors who visit the park ($19cdn). It used to be totally free during the entire Playland Season. They paid, of course, for the Fair itself in late August. But for Playland...nada. Till now.
And there's the new Seniors Season Pass as well ($48cdn). Ah well. These are the biggest changes that Playland has done in a long long time (ride removal and prices), so something must be ~ could be coming up, pretty soon.
I still miss the awesome Gift Shop they had at Playland, right where you entered the park..... and you would go into, just before you left the park. A perfect location.
What it was turned into, after it was closed up, at this location. At least they kept the top of it, in place.
This is where they moved it to. Small cramped space. And then.... no more. )o:

"Needs paint." And then some! I wonder if anybody is going to buy Corkscrew?
Whoa! There is definitely a flat ride of some kind-type going in there. Where Wave Swinger used to be. Thanks to kiki____k for posting the photo! (o: (Small bldg. is possibly the ride op's bldg.)
ALSO TO CONSIDER: They might have just removed the platform/stairs altogether (that you climb up to the swings) and are putting Wave Swinger on ground level, like so many others I have been on. Hmmm...
^ It could very well be that kind of theming. Hopefully I can see it better in a few days. And I am also hoping, that it will be some kind of thrill ride. But I have the feeling it's going to be more of a family-style kind of ride...
