Merlin have sent a letter of concern over the planning process for the London Resort. Most people seem to agree this comes across as anti competition. In a way it does show how Merlin thinks The London Resort is now a credible threat and not just an investors wet dream.
Now it’s got Merlins official attention, I hope it does go ahead for the sake of competition. Merlin are going to have to start planning some new coasters if they’re want to draw people away from a brand new theme park. Small walkthrough attractions and rebrands aren’t going to cut it.
In fairness, it’s a genuine concern that Merlin is airing with the project; I think numerous other bodies, including BALPPA, have aired a similar concern. I don’t think Merlin is just defying their competition for the sake of it.
