Loudoun Castle Closes for Final Time!
The theme park, which opened in 1995, featured 25 rides, a farm area and daily live shows. Mr Bembom took control of it seven years ago.Â Â
He said: “The combination of bad weather, increased VAT and the imminent opening of new publicly funded visitor attractions, including the Â£21 million Burns Centre and the Â£85 million transport museum in Glasgow, which will be free of charge, has created a situation where Loudoun Castle Theme Park is no longer economically viable. I would like to thank all our staff for their unwavering loyalty and support over the years. I would also like to thank East Ayrshire Council for all help offered to us in this difficult period.”Â Â
However, the site is still being kept by the current owners, and rumours of a Holiday Village being developed are already circulating. Perhaps if this is true, then once developed, we may see the park come back to life?
