Camelot returns for 2010 after attendance boost

The Camelot theme park in Lancashire, UK has confirmed that it will open for the 2010 season on Good Friday, April 2.

The owners of the park, who rescued it from bankruptcy last year, have stated previously that they intend to pursue plans for a resident development on the site. However, the park will survive for at least one more year after visitor numbers jumped by 10% compared to 2008.

Camelot went into receivership in February 2009 and seemed set to shut permanently following a disastrous 2008 season. However, it was rescued by The Story Group, which subequently leased it to the newly-formed Knights Leisure Group.

The park has struggled to compete in recent years with larger parks such as Alton Towers and the nearby Blackpool Pleasure Beach. The aim for 2009 was to attract a younger, family audience - and would appear to have been successful.

There are no comments so far.
