Cypress Gardens' Next Chapter

After months of speculation and rumors, it's finally been confirmed that Merlin Entertainments has purchased Cypress Gardens.

Merlin confirmed the news after court documents related to the sale were uncovered, but plans to release their full vision for the property on Thursday.

Many speculate that Merlin wants to change the park into a Legoland Theme Park, as that's one of the chain's strongest brands.

Details are still surfacing, but this article covers things nicely. Hopefully Merlin will have good luck with the park, but it's location is always going to be a challenge for them. I'm looking forward to hearing the full plans later this week.
