Six Flags Purchases Discovery Kingdom

Six Flags has formally purchased Six Flags Discovery Kingdom from the city of Vallejo as of yesterday.

The park operator paid the city $55 million for the property.

The sale came amid controversy raised by animal rights activists that wanted the park's elephants to not be part of the deal.

Apparently they failed and Six Flags now owns the elephants.

You can read the Vallejo Times Herald's article on the subject on their website.
