Cool, but that's all the way in North York in a boring area.There’s a similar attraction on Orfus Road called The Bubble:
The Bubble is Toronto’s newest entertainment center featuring Canada's first inflatapark, laser tag, arcade games, and more! Join us with your friends and family or host your next kids birthday party, corporate party, company party or team building event with us!www.the-bubble.com
Yes, adults are permitted to jump on it, not just prepubescent children, since the attraction is all-ages.
It even has a video arcade with redemption prizes! Oh, and laser tag!
$?If the Ford government is so assured this new Therme attraction is going to be a destination and moneymaker, why not build it out over the water to the south of OP, or on its own new little island?
It would me a moderate and new expansion to Ontario Place which seems optimistic. It would out of the way, and it would leave the west island intact, ready to be spruced up.
I agree. I'm not keen on the idea of moving the Therme proposal away from the water as then it would lose a lot of its seamless indoor to outdoor beach charm.this whole debate around this comes down to 2 things:
park vs attraction
public vs privately run attraction
i think that Ontario Place should be restored to its old theme park attraction it was before, The spa resort is kinda underwhelming of what it could be, but its decent enough. I would also like to point out the fact that the west island is solely occupied by the abandoned log flume ride and the kids village with rusting empty buildings. there is no "park" there like there is on the east island. Also the trail will be kept fully intact and upgraded later on
As long as the contract has wording to prevent unnecissary price spikes like the 407 whats the difference between a paid government run one and a privately owned one.
I picked B partly because if they're trolling an annoying question, I'll troll an annoying answer. And partly because I believe this is the responsibility of good government...but with a loaded question phrased like that, it is clear that the peeps behind this "survey" don't want that.It also asked whether the taxpayer or private interests should foot the bill for waterfront improvements. (I picked 'other' for this one so I could type in my reply, that private interests we welcome to contribute, but that building on existing parkland, and removing existing trees was not a contribution, building on parking lots would be).
...as I strongly suspect if they had posted "A Private Interests" and "B Government" and "C Other" instead, the results would be remarkably different than what they'll likely currently get. Even though there is very little change in the stated choices other than it's said framing of it.Oh boy did they get an earful about how disgraceful the selling of the public space, the destruction of the environment, their plan, and this whole situation is in my response to that (also shamefully framed, twisted to get the results they want) "other" question.
