There might be one in Los Angeles, California! :)

Here's an article on it from the Wall Street Journal.

If/when they build it, we will have to have a meet-up there!

They should build one in Britain, it's where HP started and is based, after all!

(Nothing to do with making it easier for me to visit, honest!)

#3 -- I agree with that . . . and then we should have a meet up there!

Its true Youd have thought the Brits would have been all over that!

That would be really cool. :)

Unfortunately I believe land and construction costs are quite prohibitive in the UK, certainly compared to the US.

As an example (in terms of housing, rather than amusement parks, but I'd guess the general point applies) my friend moved from his small, 2-bedroom apartment in Hampshire, England, to a three-storey, five-bedroom detached house with a huge garden backing onto a lake and a double garage, in Grand Rapids, Michigan... and had money left over! (I wasn't jealous at all!)
