I visited this theme park a few times as a kid. Since I now live close by, it would be rude not to pay it a visit, I even got the missus to come with me:mrgreen:

The site first opened as a Zoo and Marineland, and finally became Mr Marvells theme park, it closed in 1999, with most of the assets being sold off, the rollercoaster going to Knowsley Safari park.

The site has been covered a few times on this and other forums, but I always find it very sad that these places that were once so full of life are now totally lifeless, (apart from chav's wrecking what remains of course) so I wanted to share it with you all.

There is little left to see, and the area is supposed to be in a regeneration scheme along with the 1932 ampitheatre, however what I could glean from the internet it seems an obvious victim of the current recession.

Entrance, I noticed today that you can see the original 'zoo' wording on the roadway:

Looks like the kind of place my folks used to drag us to when we were kids.
