Theme park? More like a few rides scattered around market stalls selling dubious produce...

I love the suggestion that it can have 40k visitors in one day. Does that include the neighboring trailer park residents?

^ I would suggest numbers like that aren't impossible. Take a look at how many caravans there are within walking distance of the park, the place ram jammed everytime I go, but I am sure the bulk of people who visit have zero interest in the rides. It's all about boozing at the market.

Nothing to see here. Move along.

Not that there's anything wrong with that...
Anyway, from the photos it looks like not too bad of a place, trailer park aside, with a couple of coasters I'm not familiar with but seem ok. I'll have to look this 'park' up and see what it's all about.
Not to buy, but out of curiosity.

Only half decent coaster is the Millennium Coaster.
