ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the impact of recession on the U.S. theme parks in Great Britain. It is stated that despite the reduction in flight capacity, the credit crunch and the reduced value of pounds against the dollar, Great Britain appear to be reluctant to give up their U.S. theme park investment. Visit Florida director Colin Brodie believes final Great Britain 2008 visitor numbers will be about 3% down than in 2008 and will probably come down only another few percentage points in 2009.
