    Parks official resigns post in Canada

    From the Buffalo News:

    Fay Booker, general manager of the Niagara Parks Commission, has resigned from the Canadian park agency.

    The reasons for Booker’s resignation are unclear, though a source familiar with the situation said tensions between the agency and the Niagara Falls, Ont., city government likely played a role.

    Before her hiring as general manager last summer, Booker served as chairwoman for the commission, which has garnered increased attention in recent months because of its decision to allow stuntman Nik Wallenda to walk on a tightrope above the falls and awarding a 30-year contract allowing Hornblower Cruises to run boat tours around the falls.

    “We will build on the foundation Ms. Booker helped to establish and continue moving in a new strategic direction to ensure a strong, sustainable future for the Niagara Parks Commission,” interim Parks Commission Chairwoman Janice Thomson said in a statement.

    New Marineland “family” thrill ride?


    As Lithanial commented, the Air Miles reward page where you can get Marineland tickets has a description of the park. When describing the rides, it has the following:

    Anyone know anything about this?
