As a season pass holder, I'd be really concerned if the parks were sold. Would the cleanliness, beauty, and quality of the experience, rides, and food continue? Or would the park become increasingly decrepit, with outrageously priced, rotten food, creaky rides, and dirty sidewalks? Would a buyer really have the dedication to the parks? And what about the Busch animal charities? Would they keep on supporting the parks, or would the bald eagle habitat go the way of the... well, bald eagle?

I shudder to find out.

As a 9 yr season pass holder, Platinum since they offered it, I would no longer renew my pass if the parks were sold. I don't have the confidence that a new owner would keep things up the way that Busch has since they've had their reputation involved. Also, I find it hypocritical that Busch knocked its competitors in the ads they had around the park last year concerning foreign owners, yet they are willing to sell their own company to a foreign buyer!!! If I wanted a foreign beer I'd buy a Corona or a Heineken!!!
