"It’s the only place that brings together stunning performers, amazing horse feats, fantastic stunt riders, magic and audience participation with a delicious four-course dinner extravaganza for one amazing price."

If I remember correctly it was all new development around that area, and very close to a number of time-share resorts. The facility itself was just a few years old, and looked very nice from the outside. I can't imagine why someone would want that particular property so badly that they made an offer the Dollywood Co. could not refuse.
