    I have many a fond childhood memory of the place :)

    Thanks for watching. It seems your memories from the place was not too fond then, maybe everyone else felt the same & that was its downfall.

    Always interested in abandoned places, especially 'locally'. (i'm in staffordshire too)

    Nice video!

    From reading into it, a park employee was killed by a ride in 2001 and a 12 year old fell off a ride and survived in 2011. Opened in 1983, The park shut down in November 2012. Apart from the competition, I can't imagine these incidents helped the park and led to its closure/loss of revenue
