At least Fox isn't in the running. I would die if I saw a Bonzai themed area.

my question is, what becomes of themed areas such as "jurassic park" and new attractions themed to "The Mummy".... does the winning bidder also obtain the rights to the movies, or is just the theme parks up for grabs?

The highest bidder gets all of Universal, the studios, the theme parks, the movie rights. This is not just for the amusement parks.

Shouldnt GE be listed as the bidder not NBC, or is the media trying to cover that link, it doesnt make any sense. GE I think is way too big in the first place but this could put it past wal mart on the 500 next year.

Is it wrong that I'd like to see "Law & Order 3-D"?

Well Viacom is another Bidder yet they are owned by Westinghouse to my knowledge.
