I think this will be good news for the Tussauds Parks (Hopefully!).
More investment can then be put in for new attactions etc.

Heide Park for a long time now has been rumoured to be a getting a Intamin Aqua Trax coaster. Not so sure on the future plans for the UK parks owned by Tussauds, except for the Rocket coaster at Thorpe Park.

Maybe we will even see another park coming into the Tussaud 'family' :shock:

Now let's see if the same investment group swoops in and buys Paramount Parks, or Unviersal or Six Flags over here... :shock:

It's possible, especially with the dollar being so low right now. They could buy a lot of parks with a little money!
