    Would that be why Pleasure Beach was listed on 2007's TEA report as having 5.5million visitors, but then mysteriously weren't present in 2008's version?

    Having rewatched the BBC News report (on iPlayer here until 6.30pm UK time tonight, 7 minutes in) they compare 1 months drop of rail visitors against the whole summer's drop in visitors. I see the Gazette does a similar job of cherry-picking but if that bus replacement rail drop continued all summer that does account for over half the drop. It's significant the zoo is a place you have to drive to. Blackpool Grand had a poor panto season last year because of the travel issues, it's definitely a big factor in people staying away.

    Don't forget the weather. Most of spring was a washout, and June & July were so freakin' hot that most of us pasty-faced Brits stayed indoors fanning ourselves and moaning about how freakin' hot it was.
    Bet the waterparks did well though.
