MMmmm i'm not so sure. you're telling me if bpb opened for its 2013/14 season with all the classics gone replaced with ... and here's the key bit ... entertaining modern rides that appeal to the masses, it would start a steady or perhaps quite sudden drop in visitor numbers? tbh i seriously doubt that. what % of people through the gates are 'only' there because of the classics rides and of that % alone what sub-% would no longer visit due to no classics?
forums like this are bound to have a bias view by their very nature. i'm on another forum for vag cars (vw audi group) as i own a car of that brand. high majority of folk on that forum are fans of vag cars so the view on that forum can no doubt seem bias at least some of the time in favour of the brand.
my personal view is bpb would survive regardless of ride selection as long as said rides offered exciting entertainment for the masses. actually as i mentioned in another post i think if the ride selection changed more frequently the park would attract more guests.
Where have you planted your money tree? I may have to pay it a little visit.
