Not so sure I'm keen on this idea, Tussauds do a good job of running the parks and have invested quite a bit of money in them recently. I hope they don't go down hill like a lot of other parks do when they are taken over.

Jeff's avatar My understanding is that it was already another investment firm that owned them, so a sale was inevitable. Wasn't that the previous arrangement?
