It's shocking how many parks have been removed over the years but with Dreamland and the new Paramount park I hope we could see even more parks been built.

No mention of Camelot, probably the most recent casualty. I remember going as a kid and was lucky enough to take my 2 children in the last year it was open. The diesel powered dragon seemed enormous when I was little, not quite as magical when you grow up and get a face full of diesel fumes

Interesting to say see Belle Vue on there, my parents always say how they remember it when it was open!
