Alton Towers and Thorpe Park are to be placed on the stock market by their owner, businessman Nick Leslau.
The attractions are currently operated by Merlin Entertainments on renewable 35-year leases, but are not owned by the company.
Lesau’s portfolio of properties also includes the Merlin-operated attractions Warwick Castle and Madame Tussauds, and is valued at £1.45 billion.
The Financial Times newspaper is reporting that his business, Prestbury Investments, will become a public company at an unspecified date in the future.
The article said that the floated investment company would “specialise in assets that offer long-term rental income streams with contractually required future rental increases”.
Merlin Entertainments became a public company when it floated on the London Stock Exchange last year.
