The Tussauds Group now says that they are in no hurry to sell their theme park operations, after reporting record results yesterday. Profits were up 49% for the year. Tussauds boss Peter Phillipson said he was confident of being able to deliver further growth this year and beyond.

Thank god for that. :)

The last thing SF needs is more park purchases,instead they really need to focus on improving the 40+ parks they already own.

Jeff theres a major error in the news post.

Tussards(yes I know its spelt wrong) are not putting thier parks up for sale.

Tussaurd's Currant Owners Charterhouse have put Tussaurds up for sale.

even though i was not opposed to six flags buying Tussauds ( unlike some) i am happy with this announcment. Tussauds have recently been doing a very good job, and as long as the parks keep getting investment i will be happy. This also makes good business sense i think, why would you want to sell a company that is just starting to do really really well and is making a lot of money in difficult economic times?

I look forward to the future, with Tussauds buying more parks in Europe and improving their exisiting ones. Hopefully their expansion will continue to make them a world power and leader in theme parks, which at the moment is totally dominated by american companies. This will hopefully keep everyone on their toes which is great news for us enthusiasts.

From what I can glean from information gathered the SF parks in Europe are amazing when compared those in the US. I dont think SF Alton Towers woudl be such a horrible thing.
