I agree. The paramount park will probably never get built anyway?
That's what I'm thinking. It just doesn't look likely by this point, and even if it does go through, it looks like it will be heavily underfunded. Alton Towers does have budget issues, but at least they're trying new things and creating world class rides.
So, personally, I don't think Alton Towers has any threat, never mind it becoming obsolete.
