I read on theme park university that talks of the parks getting sold again this summer could be true.

Anything is for sale at the right price. Ask Fox.

Why is SeaWorld always in so much financial trouble I thought the parks were actually rebounding.

Reading the article it seems to me they are adding 2 and 2 and making 5.

Does anyone really think SWE is spending millions of $$$ on Gwazi to sell the parks ??

I don't think so.

I'm not so sure the Fox sale was about the Right Price, more about Rupert not trusting any of his kids to run his empire, so he downsized it to the thing he's cared about since he was a kid - News.

On a Sea World scale, is that much more than giving the house a fresh coat of paint ahead of a sale? I'm not sure the brand has gotten away from its troubles - the public shift away from live animal entertainment and lack of investment has knocked em down at least one tier ranking.

When you fall a long way, there's a lot of rebounding to do.

Universal should buy SeaWorld. It would be an easy way to add a real 3rd theme park.

I think it would be too off brand for them.

Besides, they've already got the advantage of being able to sell BG/Sea World tickets and operate a shuttle bus there. Why take on the liability?
