Eurgh, I really don't want to see that. Cedar fairs theming is a joke, and at is famous for theming that's good. Cedar fair don't do their theming well. Plus, cedar fair rides are just too ridiculous and only there to break records. AT, they introduce new rides and actually try to do something with them. If you disagree with my opinion, I have nothing against you for that. But intriguing idea though....

The Merlin Enteratinments Group dons NOT own Alton Towers. On the 22 May 2007 Merlin completed the purchase of Tussauds and acquired attractions, Madame Tussaud's, The London Eye, Chessington World of Adventures, Alton Towers, Thorpe Park, Warwick Castle and Heide Park. As part of the funding, Merlin Enteratinments Group then sold Alton Towers, Thorpe Park, Madame Tussaud's and Warwick Castle to Prestbury Investment Holdings Ltd. on the 17 June 2007. Alton towers is operated by Merlin Entertainments Group on a re-newable 35 year lease. So what this topic actuall means is: Should Prestbury Investment Holdings Ltd. sell Alton Towers?
