That's true. I think it was John Broome went to AA for 2 years, he had a master plan to add 2 more coasters a woodie and a steelie, and turn the park into a round the world themed. However he only added one ride, the v. bad flying island, and then left.
I would think that if AA does go up for sale it'll be Six Flags' stepping stone into the UK. As it's quite a big site and isn't too picky with it planning permission (it's a ex quarrey, like TP is).
Edwardo..... move me!
