Herschend Wants Wild Adventures

According to this article in The Ledger from this past Saturday, Herschend Family Entertainment already has a bid in on Wild Adventures Theme Park.

If you don't know, Herschend Family Entertainment operates 17 properties in 7 states. These include Silver Dollar City Theme Park, Dollywood, Celebration City, two water parks, several dinner shows, showboats, caverns, and more.

The theme park properties are regularly regarded as some of the most diversified and beautiful parks in the country... well maybe minus Celebration City, but that's a young park.

The article says they bid $34.5 million for the park, but the auction isn't until the 25th so others could join the race as well.

I'm sure the park would have a fantastic future under Herschend.
