I don't think it does.
I mean, could it ever?
This has amused me far too much.
Apparently, there are six major species of flamingo, of which you can only see two at FL. They may be a large flock, but I've been there a fair few times, and don't really remember anything about a flamingo enclosure, suggesting it's not as spectacular as it might be.
Haha. Well, if you'd really like to know...
It used to have the UK's largest flock. This is going back to when I worked there in the late '90s anyway. No idea now.
It also used to employ the UK's largest fan of coc... oh...
Slimbridge claim to have the largest flock in the UK now:
You folks clearly don't know how marketing works. The name was not meant as advertisement for what they have; it's meant as an inducement to all flamingos to come. And spend, of course.
And that's why they're not that successful, flamingos just aren't a big enough target demographic for a park in the UK.
Looking at their map, they have three flamingoes, which is more than enough to maintain a truthful name. However, the animal they appear to have the most of is Oryx, five of the horny beasts. http://www.flamingoland.co.uk/park-map.htm
And it's a well-known fact that flamingos don't have much disposable income.
Now Oryx Land on the other hand ...
It surprises me that flamingos don't have much disposable income. You'd think that being pink and standing on one leg would be skills they could profit from.
The problem is that they're being pushed out by immigrants. They're cheaper, have fewer overheads, work longer hours and come by the boat-load from Asia. Times are tough for the pro-Brexit Flamingo.
What the park really needs is a flamingo themed ride!
A stand-up coaster where you stand on only one leg! Brilliant! It has to be pink, to boot.
A Togo called Flight of The Flamingo, I can picture it now.
We're talking about Flamingoland, so it needs a silly name like Flap Flap to work.
A Larson Loop with fire effects.
Then they could call it...
Wait for it....
You're getting these for free, folks.
Perhaps they got confused and thought they going after the disposable income of the 'pink pound'.

There's a joke involving the smiler in here and you know full well what that joke is but you can write it yourself as I'm not being banned for making it.
