Splash Canyon Waterpark & Resort, a Minesing, Ontario-based waterpark that formerly included a camping park, was placed in receivership on May 7 on application by Romspen, owed approximately $100.8MM. On May 18, 2017, Kawartha Downs, a related corporation also owned by Harvey Ambrose, was placed in receivership on application by Romspen. Splash Canyon was added as a respondent to that proceeding. The Splash Canyon property, which has been closed for more than 6 years, is currently abandoned; the site has fallen into major disrepair and been subject to extensive vandalism. Rosen Goldberg was appointed receiver. Dickinson Wright is counsel to the applicant.
