Draft DA Lodged for Wonderland Site

18 posts in this topic

http://www.blacktown.nsw.gov.au/planning-a...e-park-site.cfm Go look at it. Then send in a response. ALL OF YOU. It should at least say something like: "This is the only suitably zoned site in Western Sydney for a recreational theme park site. Rezoning should not be permitted without at least an equally sized suitable site elsewhere in Western Sydney being suitably rezoned and made available for similar purposes". You should also go on about how the new land use will not generate any more jobs than the old one did. ZordMaker

Sorry old son, but that's rubbish. Start being realistic. Happy Chinese New Year to all.

Personally I think it should read something like: "Finally the site will be cleared of the rides that have been closed for nearly a year now. Please expedite the DA so that more jobs can be created sooner rather than later." How many jobs did Wonderland provide? Around 300 to 400 depending on the time of year. How many will the 10 or so businesses that will be put on the site provide? My esitmate is around 1000. Now tell me which is better for the area. LET IT GO. It's gone. It's never coming back.

Adam that information has been covered extensively on this site. If you read through pretty much any of the recent Wonderland threads you will get an answer. "The Bus is now leaving for Thread Shoal, Queensland"

Thanks wonderbus2003 for answering a quick question of mine, very much appreciated. But I do agree with you wonderbus, they're not going to put another theme park in its place.

I have now looked at the complete proposal at BCC. A response has been drafted and can be found at: http://savewonderland.artelex.com if any of you are interested. Those not interesed need not bother. In fact those not interested need not even bother being here anymore, that is unless you feel that doing 90 down Raby Road in your Datsun is all the thrills that Western Sydney needs. ZordMaker

As much as I'd like to see something remaining, I don't see the Bush Beast being kept standing let alone operating ever again. In all seriousness, if there were somebody who wanted to save Wonderland (and were financially able to) they would've come forward alot earlier. By the way, are there any other wooden roller coasters in the world that've been kept standing without a theme park attatched?

I doubt it because that would just be utter stupidity wouldn't it! Who would hope for that? :rolleyes:

I think your reality is seriously whacked Zordy. You are the only person here that thinks that there is any chance or any point in saving an old and derelict ride. So maybe it's you who shouldn't bother being here anymore. Besides I don't have a Datsun, I hate rotaries (I prefer the Lion's myself), I have a VL Commodore and do hellies in the Macca's car park every Friday and Saturday night, is that ok?

The Thunderbolt at Coney Island (perhaps made most famous by its unique appearance in Woody Allen's Annie Hall) stood for 18 years between closure and its unfortunate demolition in 2000. Of course this was a ride that was 75 years old at the time of its removal, and of tremendous historical value to Coney Island and Brooklyn. In short, a ride that was most definitely worth fighting for to keep. I don't think so much can be said about Bush Beast on the other hand.

For a 'roller coaster' site, your support, or lack thereof, for the preservation of Bush Beast, is nothing short of appalling. :P:P:P:P Poor old Zordy... :cool:
