OLYMPIC GROUNDS, LONDON, UK
A walk in the open park? Watching the grass grow around abandoned and unused sports fields? Wishing the government had done something useful with the land after the 2012 Olympics ended?
Professor Terry Stevens says that would be a bad thing, and that the Olympic Park Legacy Company is missing out on a trick. In a meeting to discuss the future of the Olympic site in East London, Professor Stevens said:
"I would look at AEG, which has turned The O2 into something really successful, Merlin Entertainment or Disney. I won't say any of them would necessarily be interested but that's the kind of people we need involved."
"It would have a major impact on the local area. Look what's happened in Orlando from the business of theme parks. Masses of hotels and jobs."
Let's cross our fingers and hope that the government listen to him and give us something special to put the UK on the theme park destination map.
