Six Flags to Buy Sea World? Wait? What?

Originally thought to be going public, theme park giant Six Flags and Apollo Global Management LLC have shown interest in purchasing Sea World and its parks.  Apollo Global Management LLC, who owns Great Wolf Resorts and Six Flags have apparently shown interest in acquiring the theme park franchise as well as other potential buyers which were not mentioned.

Sea World was originally acquired by Blackstone Entertainment back in 2009 from beer-giant Anheuser-Busch for $2.3 billion dollars.

Do you think Six Flags would do a good job of running Sea World?
