The developers making over Wasaga’s main beach area revealed their plans for a new theme park Monday, a project estimated to cost $350-$500 million.

Blue Planet, an indoor/outdoor theme park will be the hub of the beachfront development planned for the main beach.

The plan includes a 400,000-square-foot shopping plaza and indoor theme park connected by monorail to 8,000 parking spaces situated three kilometres away.

Dov Levy and his brother Armand are the principals of Beachfront Developments and say the park will include indoor surfing, snowboarding, skydiving and rock climbing in addition to an outdoor water park.

A video showing plans to transform the beachfront into a cross between Disneyland and West Edmonton Mall was shown at the grand opening of Copa Cobana Life Bar, the Levy’s latest makeover project. Beachfront Developments have recently renovated The Dard, Bananas Beach Club and now the former Friendly Greek restaurant.

“We made an aggressive decision to transform the area and make an impression on visitors,” said Levy.
He said in one year Copa Cobana will be torn down to make way for the new plans. The company envisions a total redevelopment of the beach which includes a convention centre, hotels, restaurants, an amphitheatre.

Levy said Monday his investment partners have given him five years to complete the project but he thinks he can have it finished sooner. He said they are focusing on the accommodation and theme park portion and the development will be phased in over years.

Levy said as of May they have acquired most of the beachfront properties required to complete the project.
A splash pad in which Beachfront Developments will partner with the municipality will be finished by next summer, this coming Labour Day at the earliest, said Levy. It is planned for the former beachfront waterslide location.

The former Miramar Motel site is being transformed into what Levy calls a presentation building to highlight the plans. The plans have yet to go through the council approval process. There are plans to have the Levys present the concept to council members publicly at a future committee of the whole meeting.
