Kennywood? Say it Ain't So...


...that the star of 2008's Adventureland is actually owned by a Spanish company, Parques Reunidos? Late to the news here, I found out this little tidbit when I was reading why Spain wasn't part of the G-20 group. Kennywood, previously one of the largest family-owned amusement parks was bought up back in 2007. Things seem to be the same as far as operations go. It's just that, well, Kennywood was such a Pittsburgh homegrown type of place. It's as if the Pittsburgh Steelers had been sold by the brothers Rooney to, say, some Chinese mining consortium. Perish the thought.

Or, maybe not.
