This is for general chat on any WSFP issue. Have you got a QUESTION to pose for other WSFP members? Did you construct a ride at WSFP? Did you work there and you can tell a funny story? Anything other than the straight visitor entries can go here.

At the same time the LEGO Company were looking at a site in Europe to expand their Park aspects too, and this one came up with its good transport links and high tourist levels.
They then went on to buy a locaiton in California, Germany and Japan

I recently read somewhere that the Safari Park was bought by a hotel and leisure group, who thought it was a great moneymaking opportunity. When they found it wasn't earning as much as they anticipated they voluntarily had it declared bankrupt and sold it on. All for money eh?
