Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Can see why they've got rid of it on 13 that didn't really work well. Not sure why they'd get rid of it on Smiler or Oblivion since they'll still need someone on batching for FT.

Re: SeaWorld Orlando

Not sure you can attribute a 10% fall to the Hurricane, yes it wouldn't have helped but there's more underlying factors. I very much doubt Universal's or Dinsey's revenue will have dropped by 10%.
