Bosses at the Legoland Windsor theme park said the summer months proved to be a tough time as the UK experienced its wettest summer on record. Despite the weather, the park had one of its best years ever, in part due to special events and season pass sales.

SV:LEGOLAND Parks Future
First of all it is essential to say that the LEGOLAND Parks are very different from the play materials business. In the present situation, it is therefore necessary to divest the parks into a separate company.
This will actually be an advantage to the parks because at the moment we focus very much on our core business, play materials, and are therefore not able to focus as much as we would like to on the parks. So a new set-up will support their business much better.
The ownership of this new company is at present undecided. I indicated yesterday that it can be the family or an external partner or both. An external partner will only be relevant if we are absolutely sure that this can add to the future of the LEGOLAND Parks.
It is our intention to have one company comprising all the four parks - also with a view to advantages of shared competences and knowledge.
We know that there will be interested investors because we get a lot of inquiries all the time. Many investors see this business as a good long-term investment.
Looks like the sale will not really affect the parks at all - so thats only good news

But alas, Cedar Fair would be a good choice...especially for the Carlsbad park with Knott's being just a hop skip and a jump away.
