Big Nickel Sudbury Ontario circa 1977

My google-fu has failed me. I've found some scanty descriptions of the amusement park which once surrounded the Big Nickel in Sudbury Ontario, but no pictures or any real idea of how far off the highway it would have been. Were the other coins visible from the highway? What kinds of amusement park rides? Did they charge to enter the park or did you buy tickets for the rides? Was there a souvenir store? And was the area near it still like a "Moonscape"? (I did find that the major soil/vegetation restoration in that area started in 1978, but it wasn't clear whether that problem was visible from the highway as well.

My characters are arriving in Sudbury from Toronto via Highway 69 and leaving headed west on the Trans Canadian Highway, if that helps.
