Is the UK theme park industry heading for a bumpy ride?

Sat Feb 16, 2019 8:08 pm

Hi guys, 

I'm Ellie and I'm an undergraduate student in my final year of study at Edinburgh Napier University.  As part of my final year I need to write a dissertation and mines is focusing on challenges facing the UK theme park industry either currently or in the near future.  As a result of this I'm undertaking primary research in terms of a survey in order to gain perspective on how UK theme park visitors perceive their visits.  

I need as many responses as possible and hence, would like to ask you all to take a couple of minutes to participate.

The survey can be found here: https://survey.napier.ac.uk/n/zz4p6.aspx
 
Any response is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Hi elliegelsthrorpe,

I've filled out the survey for you. Good luck with your studies. It is an interesting topic which I am sure can be discussed further.

I don't think we are heading for a bumpy ride just yet, mainly because we have recently seen investment in a number of UK theme parks. Just look at Alton Towers and Blackpool, for example, with Wicker Man and ICON. Paulton's Park has also recently announced a large scale expansion and Legoland is due to open their Monster Party attraction within the next few months. 

I do feel that parks don't invest enough sometimes, possibly due to shareholders, therefore allowing parts of the park to feel tired. Brexit will also be an interesting subject!
