Like others have said, 51-49%s only exist so one owner or group has control over the company. Also Comcast apparently cares enough about theme parks to buy out private equity group Blackstone's share of UO when they announced they'd be selling it after the success of Potter (and be the first company owning 100% of UO in nearly two decades) .
The deal was definitely about television content, but it hasn't stopped comcast from really getting behind the spending at their parks.
Why did Jaws get demolished and not one of the areas? It's in the back of the park. It's that simple.
