So, been a while so big update.
Peak Entertainments has made the decision to sell of LA Peak and leave the American theme park industry. LA Peak isn't as successful as Peak Entertainments hoped it would be by now and is not making profits. Also Lakeland Peak has been suffering and has seen gate numbers dwindle due to lack of investments. The money raised from selling LA Peak has been spent on so major upgrades to Lakeland Peak and has already seen a big increase in gate figures.
The first big change was the introduction of a third entrance near Lakeland Pearl. This was after the park continually got complaints from the public that there was no easy access to the entrance of the park from public transport, even though there is a train station near by. The new entrance is not only a 5 minute walk from the nearest train station but also has two bus stops outside. The third entrance has proven to be successful in also dispersing the crowds. Lakeland Pearl has been incorporated into the new entrance. It has received a new station building along with new 4 across trains. Two new rides, Spin Motion and Observation Tower have also been opened.
The area across the railway has also seen major changes. The water fountain play park has been removed along with Tsunami. Tsunami was removed after 30 years in operation. It saw its final 3 years at the park operating with just one station. The second being converted into a brake run, although all the original station building and queue line remained intact. After Tsunami was removed a new Intamin accelerator coaster was installed called Speed Demon. Along with Speed Demon a new dark ride has been built called Crazy Cats. Lakeland Peak Railway also saw a year out of action due to extension work. A new station has been built next to the new entrance and a new station has been built next to Lost Territory, replacing the connecting path between the two sides of the park.
Development work is now beginning on The Pier and Promenade to create it into a more relaxed area with less rides, however Speed Demon is built around the pier, and Pushin' pedals along with the boats will remain. The Dodgems have already been removed and The Ferris Wheel is due to be removed at the end of this season. The area will then be developed into an outdoor shopping district disused by a small forest.
