U.S. investment fund Ripplewood Holdings LLC expressed interest Wednesday in investing in the failed Huis Ten Bosch theme park in Nagasaki Prefecture. Ripplewood President Timothy Collins said in an interview with Kyodo News that such an investment might present a good business opportunity as his firm already owns the Seagaia resort complex in nearby Miyazaki Prefecture.

“I think our instincts are that there could be tremendous energy combining with Seagaia and creating a kernel of our original entertainment and tourism activity,” Collins said. “We just need to learn more, and hopefully we will have a chance to take a look at a player’s role if they want us to.”
