    So realistically the decision for Alton Towers to become pay one price was probably the single biggest decision in the history of the park and without it we wouldn't have what we have today. Broome's best decision that really did shape the way the park functions even to this day.

    Possibly not.
    Drayton Manor was still operating with a parking charge and then wristbands or tickets throughout the 90s. Blackpool Pleasure Beach was still doing admission plus tickets before the pandemic.
    So not sure pay-one-price was the big driving force behind the way the park went.

    I would say that Tussauds ownership and the Runaway Mine Train, Haunted House, Toyland Tours and Nemesis additions in the early 90s did far more to shape the park as it is now
