As I understand it, they're actually purchasing the park from CNL. Premier was, and apparently will remain, the operator.

Love the idea of keeping ownership local...

Yes, Premier was the latest to manage Elitch's for CNL, after Herchend and the disaster that was PARC.
Hopefully it means good things for my former colleagues that are still there.

So much for the theory of Herschend leaving Darien Lake because they wanted to ONLY purchase DL while CNL wanted to sell their whole portfolio as a group...


But then again, what do I know?
