Muslim Fun Park Day Flop

Sun (UK), August 3, 2006

A Muslims-only day at Britain’s biggest theme park has been axed after a huge bookings flop.

Organisers Islamic Leisure had hoped to attract 28,000 people to the event at Alton Towers, Staffs, on September 17—but less than 1,000 tickets were sold.

The fun day—exclusively revealed by The Sun—caused a race row after plans to ban mixed-sex rides, smoking, alcohol and gambling.

Non-Muslims were angered by the plans.

An Alton Towers spokesman said last night: “At least the park will be open to the general public.”
