Reading the article, it seems that it is down to legalities regarding who owns it, and not exactly financial problems. I seriously doubt the park would spend £600,000 on improvements knowing it is on the brink.
Pleasure Island theme park in Cleethorpes has closed down.
Staff turned up for work this morning only to be given termination letters and an assurance that they would be paid up to today.
Guests arrived at the park to be greeted with closed gates and a notice informing them that the Park would not be opening.
Pleasure Island was taken over by Dewarsaville Enterprises Limited in late November 2009. Melanie Wood (formerly Gibb), sister of Gordon Gibb, owner of Flamingo Land is a director of DEL, whose registered address is Pleasure Island. It would appear that there has been some sort of glitch in the transfer of the business from Flamingo Land Limited to DEL, the result of which has been the closure of Pleasure Island.
This mornings events came as a total shock to Staff, Supervisors and Managers alike, who are now looking to Ms Gibb for an explanation. Staff were assured that they would be contacted within the next few days and that it is anticipated that the park would be reopening shortly.
