The questions I have are as follows. Does Cedar Fair really have enough in their wallet to purchase without straining themselves? and if they do, are they going to purchase the licensing rights to things such as Nickelodeon? Also, would they try to keep the brand separate? or would they detheme Kings Island and give it the Cedar Point/coaster makeover? Not that I would mind at all if Kings Island got a big new coaster, it's just that trying to recreate Cedar Point once again with all of your parks in Ohio won't be a good thing for the company because there would be no reason to go to both parks. Believe me there is a reason right now for anyone close to visit both Kings Island and Cedar Point. In their current state, they compliment each other so well. What one doesn't have, the other does. I enjoy both parks every year for that very reason, but if they were the same, I probably wouldn't go to both in the same year all the time.
If this turns out to happen, I do hope that Cedar Fair doesn't forget the formula that made the Paramount chain so successful these last few years. They did after all drop the ball with Geauga Lake when they sold the marine animals. Maybe a lesson was learned about tampering with a formula. In the same breath, they are a great park chain, and know how to run an operation. I suppose we will all have to wait and see. A little birdie told me an announcement will be coming this summer.
