From what I have read, there is some pretty strict zoning in place that would keep it from being any thing but amusements. The city of Denver put 30mil into the property solely for the purpose of amusements, and I don't think it will be easy to change that.
Don't bet on it. Having been raised by a real estate lawyer I've heard a story or two. Major real estate developers tend to push cities around like playground bullies Rezoning happens every day, and city council members can be bought on the cheap. Nobody wants to stop development in their municipality, and for good enough reason. Moreover, Denver real estate is quite valuable these days. A motivated developer could perhaps work out a deal that included remuneration for the city's prior investment.
I gotta say I realy liked EG! Except Flying Coaster! That painful POS should be placed on Shapiros desk as a paperweight. It was quite a pretty park. Very clean and well kept. Anyway, I hope it does get purchased by someone. It seems unlikely that it would go for any kind of residential as it is stuck right between the freeway and a huge railroad yard. Seems a little bit of a loud area for any kind of living area.
I hope it dosn't go. I realy enjoyed it's clean, wholesome, fun, family atmosphere. Hey, that sounds like a great slogan. Six Flags should try that one out .
Kennywood really doesn't have the money to put into another park. They have been really looking forward to expanding their very land-locked park. If SDC's company bought it I think it might fit them a bit better then KW's company.
Besides, why would Kennywood be in the process of acquiring 40 acres of land for the park, and still think about a park that they really shouldn't be buying.
