Niagara This Week published an article about a local company hoping to raise interest in its “3-D Transportation System”. It sounds a bit “pie in the sky”, but the concept exists in New Zealand and has received an award from Google.
Apart from the transportation system, the local company is proposing to build an eco-adventure park in Niagara Falls Ontario and New York. The park will feature the transportation system, electric jet boat, bungee jumping, and more.
The company recently started a crowd-funding campaign with a $1 million goal. Over the past week they have only managed just over $100 with a target end date in December.
If they reach the $1 million goal they can possibly secure an additional $3 million in financing for a total of $4 million. A project like this will cost considerably more, so if this is to see fruition for the 2016/17 season as proposed, the stakeholders will need to have significant personal savings.
