Think back to Mineral King but they had skiing.

Yes, but the road was a major issue at Mineral King.
The site mentioned in this article is actually ideally situated on Highway 400, just 5 minutes north of the 401, the major east west freeway in southern Ontario.
Not that I expect this to actually come to fruition. The value of the real estate where Canadas Wonderland sits is far to high for any purchaser to continue with a theme park. As housing land its worth more than 500 million, were it zoned residential.

Its fun to speculate on it though....

And I thought California was expensive! Were those American or Canadian dollars you were quoting?

Canadian of course.
In the area of Canadas Wonderland, a 3 bedroom house starts at $750,00 and goes way up from there. Its a very upscale neighborhood. The average appears to be about 1.3 million for a house. https://www.findnorthyorkregionhomes.co ... gI9OPD_BwE
Given the size of the parks acreage, that got to be room for at least 500 homes. I understand that zoning is the only reason it has not been bulldozed yet.
It is almost as landlocked as the Disneyland/ California Adventure parks.
Here it is in the map view: https://binged.it/2HRMvxE
