San Diego already has the wild animal park, so there's a foundation to build on should they choose to make another surprise purchase.
Certainly does help the presence of the Sea World Parks in San Diego as others had said, plus I would believe this will lead to greater sales in season passes should they offer a two-park pass like they do in VA for BG/Water Country, SeaWorld Orlando/Aquatica, BG/Adventure Island in Tampa, etc...
Certainly adds more bang for the buck for those who own a Platinum Pass and actually go to multiple SeaWorld Park locations each year as well.

I'm really happy to see the San Diego branch of SeaWorld growing so much in these few years. This Soak City has almost seemed abandoned in terms of getting anything new at all, I can't wait to see what SeaWorld will bring to this park!

Almost every Cedar Fair separate admission waterpark has seemed abandoned. What was the Last Oceans Of Fun thing before this year? Wildwater Kingdom, Oh? Soak City across from Knott's? Soak City OH?

I wouldn't be surprised if their Palm Springs Soak City will be sold in a few years.
1: Lightning Run, 2: El Toro, 3: Maverick, 4: Xcelerator, 5: Voyage, 6: TTD, 7: Gold Striker, 8: El Loco (Vegas), 9: Millennium Force, 10: Kingda Ka Coaster Credits: 110 (89 steel, 21 wood); Last Coaster Credit: Raptor (CP) [8/22/14]; Last Park Credit: Waldameer [8/21/14] What a season pass??
^While it is a distinct possibility that Cedar Fair may be considering selling some more of its "one-off" properties, I can't imagine SeaWorld buying any more of the California parks at this time. With Aquatica San Diego now on the way they've got California doubly covered, as they do with San Antonio and (to a much larger extent) Central Florida. I see Aquatica San Diego supporting the nearby SeaWorld and also grabbing a better foothold in the surrounding market. Having a third SeaWorld park outside of San Diego would likely cannibalize the business there..
