Six Flags/Cedar Fair Merger and it's effects on SDC

(1/2) > >>

chittlins:
If they keep the Six Flags pricing to be able to visit other parks, SDC will be competing with a combined SFSL and WOF with a Frontierland thrown in as a bonus

KBCraig:
That's a big "if".

Few things stay the same for long after a big merger.

Lampie:
Iím not convinced it will get past anti trust regulations. It might but itís combining #1 and #2 in terms of number of properties. Many states that had 2 park companies will only have 1(or like Missouri will go from 3 companies to 2)Ö. Thatís the type of consolidation that usually gets deals reversed by the feds.

sdcfan88:
Corporate monopolies are never good. Get ready for non-competitive prices that will top Disney. Also expect quality and upkeep to slip and you will also see some parks and assets that were seen as former competition to be closed and liquidated. Meanwhile, smaller independent parks will feel the pinch and pressure to be absorbed as they try to compete.

This.is amusement parks we are talking about. It'll get barely a glance by the feds.
