A galactic letdown

The promise of leaving Earth for a day wasn’t enough to save the Space Center Bremen

In analyzing the abrupt and unexpected closing of the Bremen, Germany-based indoor theme park known as the Space Center Park, the author examines why this US$760 million, high-tech playground--deemed a financial disaster--ceased operations after only 217 days. In doing so, the author points out the disproportion between the park's costly admission fee (US$28 per person) and its lack of audience-satisfying amenities. This disproportion, the author writes, resulted in the center's failing to attract its expected 1.5 million annual visitor-base and its failing to generate the revenue needed to sustain operations.
