I love amusement parks. Living in the theme-park-loaded state of Florida, I relish driving out with my family to hit smaller parks with retro charm, shorter lines, and more affordable turnstile prices.
I've been blessed to visit several dozen amusement parks in recent years. My favorites? Cedar Fair's
As someone willing to put his money where his mouth is (after rinsing the greenbacks in antibacterial soap, of course), I've been an investor in Cedar Fair for several years.
However, I'm concerned that the company may have bitten off more than it can chew with its latest acquisitions. So I found myself itching to write the bearish case on Cedar Fair -- a Motley Fool Income Investor newsletter recommendation. Meanwhile, Chuck Saletta, usually seen around these parts as the bear, wanted to wax bullish on the stock.
