I heard somewhere (maybe in this forum) that adventure parks are only made financially viable by getting people to spend several days there, in hotels, eating in various restaurants, raiding the mini-bars, etc. The actual parks themselves are a loss leader – a vehicle to attract customers so profits can be made elsewhere. Apparently that’s why Disneyworld works (people will go there for a week long holiday) and that’s the thinking behind Euro Vegas – the stakeholders in the park also have a stake in the other services. However I can’t see that being the case with theme parks built next to existing resorts, and other existing theme parks.
