Camelot Theme Park Closes in Lancashire

Chorley, UK (November 5, 2012) — Knights Leisure has today announced that Camelot Theme Park will not reopen for the 2013 season.

Roy Page, Managing Director of Knights Leisure, commented: “It is with reluctance we have had to take this very difficult decision. Following a number of years of declining visitor numbers, the 2012 season proved particularly challenging.

“Whilst we have become used to inclement summer weather in the UK during the past few years, a combination of the wettest summer for 100 years, the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations followed by the spectacular television coverage of the Olympic Games during our busiest months of the summer and the school holidays had a major impact on visitors to Camelot.

“I would like to thank all the staff who have helped to make Camelot Theme Park one of the region’s most entertaining visitor attractions and our many loyal visitors for their continued support over the past 29 wonderful years.”
