To anyone concerned this could be the same situation, it isn't. SFNO was only open for a few years, was in the worst part of a city that isn't known for being safe and family friendly, and the biggest issue, it was never profitable. The flooding in SFNO lasted for around a month which led to an insane level of damge to nearly the entire park. Since the park was essentially totaled, SF decided to use the insurance payout elsewhere on safer ventures. ESP as the economic collapse happened before any rebuild materialized.

This but much more of a focus on the length of the flooding. That's evident by the fact that SF didn't salvage more of the rides. Also, I think it was a lot less that it wasn't a safe area as it was there was a lot of question of whether or not the population of that area would come back. Hindsight can paint a very different picture than the picture of the moment and I remember right after the flood there were predictions that the entire area was going to be abandoned.
