Plus, I very seriously doubt they will sell to a company that plans to dismantle the park. The city wants someone to come in and invest in the park which will in turn spur economic development of the area, giving more tax revenue to the city.
My hopes are for Busch to buy the park, but at this point almost anything is better than the current situation. I wonder if one of the other 2 unnamed companies interested is Cedar Fair?
