That was a quick sale!  Didn't it just go up for sale recently? This should be submitted to the news section for sure.

Truth is, I don't know the truth.    I've seen stories that one of the park operators and sombody else (A ex SF exec)purchaced it and also that the city is giving the park 20 million for improvements.
Chuck, saying right now this is all hearsay other than a Sold notice.

Well  it sounds like that park has had nothing but problems. I did'nt understand it, did SF purchase it ? Or that Alfa SmartParks ? Well however bought it, I sure hope they can turn it around in the right direction.(as well as newer & better rides)

Neither....a former SF executive that worked for Alfa Smartparks purchased it for a fraction of its cost.

Where the heck was CF during all this mucking about?  I'm guessing either the executive was using insider info to his advantage or CF perceived Jazzland as a questionable investment at best.
