    Re: Snoopy gets evicted

    This is a poorly written article... I don't know exactly what it is saying... Does it infer that Cedar Fair lost the rights to Peanuts... Or rather that Mall of America couldn't work out an operational deal with Cedar Fair?

    Re: Snoopy gets evicted

    When Mall of America decided not to renew their management contract with Cedar Fair they lost the rights to using the Peanut's characters. MOA still wanted to use the characters, but a deal could not be reached between MOA and CF, so MoA has to say good-bye to Camp Snoopy (the name and character's only)

    Re: Snoopy gets evicted

    I read on another site that the current rumor is that the park will get a Warner Brothers theme. Not sure how that will work with Six Flags.

    Thats not cool at ALL! I liked that park, the new names they have planned out are just dumb, The Park at MOA, gee that sounds cool.

    Look what Viacom has done with the Nickelodeon characters, they have licensed them to Universal, and also use them in the Paramount Parks. Also, Circus Circus got the rights to use the Spongebob 3D movie.

    Since Six Flags doesn't have a park near the Mall of America, why not get some extra money from selling the rights, and selected items and shows.

    Re: Snoopy gets evicted

    FYI, that Spongebob movie is also in Paramount parks (duh) and a few Six Flags parks. Six Flags over TX and Six Flags Great Adventure are the two I'm sure of, I'm not sure if it's at any others.

    So not only has Viacom put the Spongebob stuff into their own parks, and Circus Circus, but also to the competition, although, in Viacom's defense they were put in before they took over.

    Re: Snoopy gets evicted

    SpongeBob 3D is also an attraction at the former Camp Snoopy which was a Cedar Fair park and currently an independant park.

    Re: Snoopy gets evicted

    Well, my personal opinion is that it's the MOA and does that really have any draw any more? It's not the kind of thing I'd go vacation to. I always thought the place was a bit of a gimmick, myself, and that those folks in MN were going to wind up with the Empty Cinder Block of America in a few years. Seems that it's still holding on, but I think the theme of a park in a mall, even a big mall, is really no huge loss.

    For some reason I thought this had to do with Knotts Berry Farm. Is that Camp Snoopy still safe? I have to admit that it's somewhat charming even if much of Knott's itself has lost the same sparkle.

    Also, having lived in Schultz' hometown for many years, having seen him many times and once attempted to politely introduce myself to be treated rather brusquely, I've had my fill of the guy and his strip.

    From what I read the new owners of the mall didn't want to pay a third party to manage the park anymore. They, therefore, terminated the contract with Ceder Point early. Besides, if Six Flags can't manage their own parks, why would anybody pay them to do it for another park?

    I am not surprised by that... It belongs with Paramount Parks anyway...

    USH still has the Nickelodeon Blast Zone and uses their Characters.

    I know that at USF, the agreement to operate Nickelodeon Studios was terminated, but they still offer the Jimmy Neutron's Nicktoon Blast.
