Let's hope everything goes well for Castle Park as I know they were a bit nervous about this sale.

I am pretty sure they operate splish splash on long island too.
Its profitable water park that is always packed. They are always clsoing the gates because they are filled to capacity.

I'll wager that Castle Park will be sold, as it's beyound the scope of the rest of Palace's operations. Bud Hurlbut had a bad case of sellers remorse after he sold out to Palace. Who knows, maybe he'll buy it back?

Whoever buys it, let's hope he or she likes wood. ;)
