Gilroy Gardens Ditching Cedar Fair?

It looks like Cedar Fair's management contract with Gilroy Gardens expires in February of 2009, and the owner of the facility does not seem to intent on extending the agreement.

PARC Management is being reported as being interested in running the property as a waterpark for children. It seems that the age bracket of 3-9 is the target audience for the park regardless of who is operating it.

The park is gorgeous so whatever they do with it I only hope they don't mess with that beauty. And as for Cedar Fair leaving, well, I'm not surprised. They inherited the management contract, and what money they receive from that contract is probably a drop in the bucket anyway. Gilroy Gardens didn't fit with Cedar Fair, anyway.
