In my case, I've been to Orlando six times and while I've always been curious about CG, I've never gone. Next trip, I would try Gatorland for the first time over CG... not to be mean, it does interest me but just not enough to drive there and give up time at other places that interest me more. I do with them luck keeping it going, but my guess is that someone may develop the land for another purpose given the number of failed owners that have come and gone.
I wish both parks the best of luck. I plan on renewing my Passport as long as there is a park to visit. If I could just win the state lottery, I would probably buy the place.
