    There's no way Cedar Fair selling Carowinds. The company has been making big investments to the park, and are even planning a resort hotel. Didn't Ouimet once say that the park "could become the Cedar Point of the South?" Now that would be a big task, but it does show that Ouimet really sees potential for Carowinds. So I don't think Cedar Fair would even consider selling the park.

    Six Flags is currently focusing on building international locations in China and Dubai. I don't believe they'd want to buy another US park if that's the case.

    EDIT: Nevermind, they are considering buying US parks. I still don't think they'll go after Carowinds though.

    No, they have said they are open to adding existing parks, water parks.

    Their exposure seems to be quite limited in the Dubai and China ventures.

    Interesting he said "Busch Gardens" instead of "Sea World". Maybe worth reading more into that.

    Just because the CEO has said the park is not for sale, this really isn't the be all and end all. People can say things aren't for sale to make the person bidding to raise their price.

    Busch Gardens is not for sale. Just like Carowinds is not for sale.

    So as it stands now... 2018 we're getting air conditioned Sand Serpent. 2019 we're getting Gwazi's replacement. 2020 we're getting a BGT resort. Still curious what's happening with Tidal Wave though.

    They did just appoint a new park president with a wealth of experience in creating new animal habitats.
