The local area could never support something the size of Paramount Canada's Wonderland, however something should be built closer to Halifax. Upper Clements Park is a decent park, but the 3 hour drive from Halifax turns a lot of people off. I definitely don't like the idea of putting it next to the water, as mentioned it's way too cold, damp and foggy. Needs to be inland more, maybe next to a lake. I also don't support incorporating a stadium into an amusement park, that should be somewhere by its self.
Something like this might just drive the final nail in the coffin at Atlantic Playland, and would do a serious blow to Upper Clements Park. Atlantic Playland I don't care about, but UCP is still a good park, and I would hate to see it lost.

Not enough room on the former pleasure grounds site; in fact a decent sized park (larger than Upper Clements) would take up a huge portion of the island... and I for one would never want to see that happen.
