For the short term at least I guess we can assume that there won't be any substantial changes in the theme park ranks. I don't have an opinion on whether that's good or bad.

Considering the current ranks are giving us things like Shrek 4D and the Mummy (And the Royal Pacific), I think we can assume that this is a generally good thing... except for the whole selling the Lockheed site thing.
