Rhyl's Drift ParkAs a study is under way to come up with ideas to redevelop Rhyl's visitor attractions, we're asking what you think the resort needs.

Denbighshire Council, the Department of Economy and Transport of the Welsh Assembly Government have commissioned a report [Redeveloping Rhyl's Attractions] to "investigate the future of all weather visitor attractions in Rhyl and how to reinvigorate the appeal of this important coastal town".

So what do you think?

Apart from the skytower, the Children's Village has received lots of criticisms from locals over the years and now with the old fun fair flattened, what could be brought to Rhyl to win back the tourists and complement the new-look Prom, aka the Drift Park, [seen right]?

Planners are certainly thinking big what with the idea for a marina opposite the old former fun fair site and linked via an impressive £5m footbridge.

Look what has been done with Salford Quays, Portsmouth's Gunwharf, and Brighton Marina.

So, what should we do with Rhyl? There's no denying you loved the place. But what's left to try?

Rhyl has had the outdoor pools [old and new], there have been numerous fairs, sideshows, theatres and even a pier.

Any ideas?
