Camelot Abandoned Theme Park

Camelot Abandoned Theme Park

The park opened in 1983 and was operating seasonally until late 2012. The park was based on the story of ‘Camelot, King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table’.  The closure of the park was announced by its operator, Knights Leisure, in November 2012, the managing director blaming poor summer weather and events such as London 2012 and the Queen’s Jubilee for declining visitor numbers. Today, some roller coasters were sold (for example Whirlwind bought by the German “Skyline Park”), others rust in the abandoned park.
