    It really is getting worse... at this point I am becoming a little embarrassed that I actually like the park as much as I do (and that was a little embarrassing to start with 😅)

    TBF, It would never have been called sandal ...... it's in the wrong area of the park 😂

    Disney's theme parks and more: what is their future?

    I don't think Chapek has really made a dent in the parks positively. The good aspects were all in play before he took helm. Where is responsibilities lie is with changes to the parks in terms of fan favourites with now a distinct feeling of the resorts being too expensive with optional add-ons...

    But where else will all of the budget go . . .

    Wonder what the theme is going to be.... cannot think how a brown building, black silver track and black fencing to together...

    Kent, England | The London Resort | Entertainment Complex

    I thought that the BBC and ITV signed up to the project after the species of spider was already found... it now just sounds like a good excuse instead of saying 'this was going nowhere'

    WTF Merlin?

    You are exactly right - and this was my thoughts exactly. As theme park enthusiasts, we see it a bit differently to Joe public or the business perspective. In my local area - a retail park had a small Aldi. They then built a larger premises as part of its expansion for Lidl. Aldi then 3 months...

    Accident on Splash Canyon

    Teacher here - in my experience, the pupils are told to stay in groups and are left to go around the parks / resorts themselves. There are specific meeting points around the parks that they 'check-in' with. Some groups of children generally have an teaching assistant with them for most of it...

    It has gone from the map completely. What some are forgetting is that throughout the lockdowns, FL has had to continue zoo operations. It is well documented that zoos have struggled in the UK due to continued outgoings with no income. We also know that FL had to take out a CIBLS loan from...

    I don't think a buyout is necessary providing operations can be brought in line with market expectations. Easily done through an efficient management structure and consistent processes. The problem is culture - and culture change is not quick and can be difficult !! But it must be started to...

    That's a bit of a harsh critique

    M&D's Theme Park goes into Administration

    From a business perspective - it is important to point out that M&D's went into administration. Entering this process means no money is in the bank so as @Bentleya said, not really an option. Also, furlough exists to try and retain staff when a business is not operations meaning that cash flow...
