Following approval (from EU Competition Authorities) the deal announced in March between Merlin Entertainments Group, and The Tussauds Group has been completed. This deal creates the world’s second biggest visitor attractions operator after Disney. Merlin’s portfolio now includes brands such as Legoland Parks, Madame Tussauds, London Eye, Sea Life Centres, Dungeons, Gardaland, Alton Towers and our own Thorpe Park. The Tussauds branding will be slowly phased out. Will be interesting to see what the Annual Pass offers us next year.
