Well, I wouldn’t exactly say “loved” by the time we reached the 20-aughts, they made some very stupid moves in that decade like getting rid of the beloved Children’s Village.It is both a fact and an opinion
FACT: ontario place was a very sucessful and loved attraction until it closed
FACT: Doug ford will skip over all city interference to get this built
Opinion: this redevelopment will be a better attraction than Ontario Place years ago
Opinion: Its a good thing doug ford will be skipping those nimby approvals. Tell me the difference between "put the waterpark somewhere else" and "put that subway entrance somewhere else"
But many can speak of many fond memories in the 1980s and 1990s.
Anyone remember the Sea Trek ride, for a no name attraction, there was a good amount of theming there, much better than the similar styled Days of Thunder at then Paramount Canada’s Wonderland.
But even if nothing gets done on the West Island, or whatever happens happens, what exactly becomes of the centrepiece of Ontario Island, the five pods, the very reason why the islands exist in the first place.
I think bringing back the Nintendo Power Pod and Lego Land back to the pods as it was in the early 90s, could create a lot needed buzz to Ontario Place. But we all know that won’t happen.
