Wouldn't this belong into Buy / Sell / Trade?
Yes it would if we could afford a theme park
But since it is out of my price range, I put it in general.

LEGO and Blackstone will be partners to own and run the themeparks. Blackstone has a majority stake so they will make most of the operational decisions (but with input from LEGO).
I dont know if Blackstone can close a park but they can add rides and open new parks (according to the articles). Plus they will encorporate a few LEGO rides/displays into some of their other themeparks for additional exposure of the company.
