    Toverland's Expansion Plan

    How do you know this? of the three you mention I could see a disk'O - themed to 'knights of the round table' fitting in well... not sure about a topspin if I'm honest!

    Toverland's Expansion Plan

    I actually think they have come leaps and bounds - and not so sure they are still considered 'just a kiddie park' anymore, and would say they have elbowed themselves into being one of the top 15 - if not top 10 theme parks in Europe, which is no small feat when you consider they are (only) 20...

    Toverland's Expansion Plan

    Before Troy and the outdoor expansion there were plans for a 3rd Warehouse with the idea that with each - the offerings would target a slightly different age group and thrill bracket.... 1st for small kids......2nd for older kids etc....... With the space they have I don't see why they...

    Toverland's Expansion Plan

    They need to get on and build their long awaited hotel next me thinks, which I think would help increase those visiting numbers, I mean there are smaller parks with hotels already - and I think Tover could do something unique. I could image Toverland being one of the few non-IP based park...

    Rumours That Hansa Park Might Be Sold

    Lol - NOW, as much I hope Hansa doesn't get sold, IF it was to be sold - MACK would in fact be fab (still family owned) and Europa being Europa - they'd be the best bet in keeping the right 'flavor' and not ruin the park!

    Rumours That Hansa Park Might Be Sold

    Weirdly - the fan forums had basically poo-poo'd the rumours - and basically said 'end of discussion'. So I posted the looopings article.... as no one else had or referred to it - and my post got deleted...... so seems a bit strange to shut down discussion like that..... unless the moderators...

    Rumours That Hansa Park Might Be Sold

    Taking a look at discussions (via google translate) over on haha-forum - the official/unoffical Hansa fan group and forum, it seems people are pretty unanimous that this is a rumour from a unreliable/trouble making source and this rumour seems to raise it's head almost every couple of years. I...

    Are theme parks Capitalist or Socialist?

    Yeah (great points by the way) I think what I meant more is not are theme parks actually socialist/Capitalist themselves as an entity - but more about how they are viewed or would be viewed in different socio-political climates? Are there political climates that simply wouldn't allow theme parks...

    Are theme parks Capitalist or Socialist?

    Hey thanks for taking my random shower-thought post seriously guys - really interesting responses, defiantly makes more sense and food for thought ( yet nothing I'll loose sleep over).

    Are theme parks Capitalist or Socialist?

    Yeah, the theme park boom in China is seen as a sign of the country becoming more Capitalist, and in The UAE - theme parks are seen as a statement of wealth and development! And in some countries, whilst theme parks aren't state owned they have some GOV funding! or its run partly by the GOV...

    Are theme parks Capitalist or Socialist?

    Ok I was pondering this question in my head, and without wanting to create any sort of contentious political post ( I don't want to create arguments about which one is best or not) , but more a interesting discussion - are Theme parks socialist or Capitalist, or something in between? and would...

    Movie Park Germany | Unknown | Intamin Multi Dimension Coaster | 2021

    I think they'd have to make them more like 'souvenir guides' were back in the day with a pull out map, so its more in-line with a Merch Item than just charging for something that was once free. a step up in quality, and i'd be for that more inclined to want to buy one.

    Movie Park Germany | Unknown | Intamin Multi Dimension Coaster | 2021

    Same! Only solution which I'd be happy with is sell them! make them good quality and artful and i'd happily spend 5 euro on one etc. or return to souvenir booklets etc.

    Vietnam | Vinpearl Thu Thiem | Theme Park

    The level of theming on that is amazing - and an enclosed suspended sounds a lot of fun!
