VisionLand bondholders decided Friday to foreclose on the foundering amusement park. The city, which took control of the VisionLand last week, wants it to file for bankruptcy to ward off creditors, who are owed almost $100 million. The park defaulted twice on its bond payments last year, with the bondholders' approval. The Bessemer City Council will discuss their next move Tuesday.

I seriously doubt it will happen. The problem is that for the last five years, the people who run the park have been saying "Let us open and we'll make tons of money." Well, the park opened, and because of it's location, size, cost and poor quality of service, few people went. I'd love to see it open, but I think the bondholders have had enough and are ready to get SOMETHING back on their investment...
Now if they'd keep the waterpark open with just one rollercoaster...:)
