    I'm not educated in finance either, but I don't need to be to know that 1 million is f**k all.

    £1m isn't really a very big budget. I did once hear of a park in Croatia that was conceived on £12m, and I think the conversion of Chessington Zoo to CWOA was conceived on a pretty low budget, but I don't know of any decent parks conceived on £1m.

    At the current average of £6 per day, we're on track for a 2480 re-opening :)

    At the risk of sounding like my Dad, that was a while ago - let's not forget Nemesis only cost 10million compared to Smiler's 18. You don't as much cred for your million anymore :(

    Bare in mind this will reach about £30 though, ironically, just about enough to visit a functioning park :p

    So, one person has donated £10, and a second has had the confidence to give £2, about enough for a Coke at a UK park, for a grand total of £12.

    F**king brilliant.

    I no longer think this person is stupid.
    The people donating, however...
    (I was going to do a joke donation, but £2 is the minimum, so sod that)

    If £12 has been donated so far, then he is 0.00012% of the way towards his goal of £1m!

    I mean, if it's really for the community he could always apply to have community payback/service people come in and clear the site. So that's that done, and for free.
    A nice SBF spinner for €299,000
    A Pinfari looper, for the thrillseekers, for €525,000
    A Zamperla pirate ship for €150,000

    and that leaves nearly £30,000 for a few buildings and toilets. Easily done.

    You're all far too pessimistic ;)

    Yay! So it's been proven that you can buy 3 rides and some toilets for £1million! Thus making... one themed area of a proper theme park!

    Yup! And only £999,988 to go until he can afford that. The dream is almost palpable...

    Actually there's a US based company that sells new coasters at a VERY cheap price. The only catch is they arrive as flat-pack and it is up to the park to do the construction themselves.

    I believe the name is Knex?

    Perhaps we can petition the petition out of existence and save the man some dignity
