In a press release, park officials said the ride they were hoping to obtain is no longer available.

The park had submitted a report to Saskatoon city council in May, seeking approval to install a permanent skyride, similar to those seen at ski hills.

Park officials said they are continually looking for opportunities to add attractions to the Saskatoon Ex.
