Concern for profit takes shine off Silver Springs

Published July 20, 2008 Opinion
With the addition of theme parks around Florida, Silver Springs, of course, lost appeal to the roller-coaster enthusiasts. However, there is still a lot that Silver Springs can offer today’s public. The park added a concert venue years ago that brought a major influx of visitors. The concerts breathed new life into an otherwise suffering park.

What kind of management is running our beloved park?

They are Palace Entertainment, a huge conglomerate based in California. They manage a list of various theme parks around the United States. Palace Entertainment, in turn, is held by a company in Spain. These people have no concern to run Silver Springs professionally. They are about one thing: Making a profit.
