Thoughts? I wish it was April 1 cause this sure seems like a cruel joke to me.
Seems strange that they'd sell KW and keep the others.
It must have been a pretty compelling offering considering they've obviously had chances to sell out in the past...

The corporation seems like they are buying up lots of parks, which reminds me of what Six Flags did to get them into the mess they are in. I hope this turns out better.
Anyone familiar with any of the parks they operate?
From the article: "...agreed to sell the West Mifflin amusement park, nearby Sandcastle water park, Idlewild & SoakZone in Ligonier and other holdings...". Later on, "Included in the deal are Lake Compounce Theme Park in Bristol, Conn., and Story Land in Glen, N.H." There's nothing else in the chain, right?
The GOOD news: "...Parques Reunidos is the first one to share our vision and philosophy." So...remaining optimistic, hopefully we'll see little-or-no change in the park or its operations...
"The Kennywood experience -- as visitors have come to love and expect -- will continue. Nothing will seem different, even to the folks working at the parks. Existing management and staff will remain in place," Harry Henninger, chairman of Kennywood Entertainment, said in the news release.
I hope that is true

NOTE: EightDotThree answered what I missed in the article.... But I submitted this before I saw that. *** Edited 12/11/2007 4:23:11 PM UTC by beast7369***
...which does make me wonder (really WONDER) about the timing of this decision. Hmmmm....
