Had to have a look at this place before it no doubt becomes houses, Visited with SAt and nick(non member)

Shouts to Clough of Le LLS for telling us where to get tickets

some history
The park opened in 1983 and was operating seasonally since then. The park is based on the story of 'Camelot, King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table'. The local area was once covered by the largest lake in England Martin Mere, which was first drained in 1692 by Thomas Fleetwood of Bank Hall in Bretherton. In 1986 it was taken over by The Granada Group and operated by them alongside its now defunct sister parks American Adventure and Granada Studios Tour. In June 1998 the park was subject to a management buyout in which the park went to Prime Resorts Ltd.

Camelot has seen a downturn in attendance in recent years. In 1995, Camelot's attendance was 500,000 visitors throughout the season. In 2005 Camelot's attendance was only 336,204 visitors.

Brilliant, I remember visiting here as a kid and being too scared to go on "The Beast" which on reflection was clearly not scary at all
