Another possibility is for CBS to sell the parks piecemeal. As a King's Dominion passholder, I'd be delighted if Cedar Fair bought PKD, but I don't think that it would make a lot of business sense for CF to buy all the parks in the chain. That would leave them with all 3 major parks in Ohio, which strikes me as overkill.

I know this comment will drive Ben Mills nuts, but it just occurred to me that if Tussaud's ever wanted to get into the U.S. market, this would be the opportunity.

On what basis does the statement claiming Great America as "by far the weakest" in the family enter in here? Profitability certainly doesn't support this claim.

Attendance. Attraction quality. PGA has the smallest attendance in the chain and hasn't had a major new attraction in years. Which will only serve to depress attendance -- and, following, profitability -- in years to come. You can't save your way to long-term profitability in this business. You have to invest.
