There is an article in the OC Register today that says Cedar Fair will not sell out and they will remain as is. In my opinion, this is NOT good news!
And the following is a part of the article I found most interesting...
Knott has said his family chose to sell the park to Cedar Fair because they believed Cedar Fair would run Knott’s Berry Farm the way the family would have. “I think the best has happened, and we can get back to the business of running a good amusement park.”
The grandson of Mr. & Mrs. Walter Knott made the comment that you see above and I couldn’t disagree with him more!! If his grandparents saw how Knott’s was being run now, they would turn over in their graves!
Ever since Cedar took over, the Park has gone down hill and lost so much of it’s charm it once had. Too many unnecessary roller coasters and the fact they got rid of Reflection Lake, The White Church, The Haunted Shack, Knott’s Bear-y Tales, Soap Box Derby and many other classics. It scares me now that Cedar Fair will remain, cuz I feel they’re only going to make this Park worse, than better!
I’m so sorry this deal did not go through. What a sad day!
