Cedar Fair is Purchasing Paramount Parks

I live an hour's drive away from what is arguably the best theme park on the planet, especially if you are a roller coaster fan: Cedar Point.

Today, their parent company (Cedar Fair L.P.) announced the acquisition of Paramount Parks. This means that "the other" major theme park in Ohio, King's Island, will now become a sister park to Cedar Point instead of an intra-state rival.

Cool! I doubt that my season pass for CP will allow entrance to KI, though (it does not allow entrance to another nearby Cedar Fair park: Geauga Lake and Wildwater Kingdom).
