Ok. I've thought about it and here's what I would do.

Buy Great America from SF but then work out a deal like the new international parks where I keep the Six Flags, DC and Warner Bros licensing for a annual payment. Having the DC and Looney Tunes characters is value.

Here is what I would do in each section of the park over the next 10 years:

Overall park changes; bring back area specific uniforms like the Marriott days. Food becomes specific to each area; no more of this copy/paste bullshit throughout the park.

Parking lot.

Massive parking structure built in the back end of the lot. This is to become new every day parking. The main lot will be developed. Looking at Google Maps there are 3 sections plus school bus drop off. The middle section will become Gold Pass VIP parking (first come, first serve).

Main Street area
New park entrance shops, a nice table service restaurant with finer fair found at park quick service restaurants. Keep it in line with Main Street areas found in other SF parks to bring some of the franchise to us however you can only enter/exit from the parking lot and Carousel Plaza.

Hurricane Harbor.
I Know jack all about water parks but we'd expand into the parking lot and create a unique entrance for just HH. Create HH only single day and season pass tickets. Shops, a table service restaurant and a water coaster will be added with the expansion.

Orleans Place.
Unbox Dark Knight and retheme it to something Orleansy.
Take down Superman, expand behind and into the bus drop off. Add in a record breaking B&M floorless 8 inversion megalooper named AfterShock (name stolen from someone else on the forum). Tallest, fastest looping coaster with tallest vertical loop and first 8 looper in the US.

Yankee Harbor into Gotham Harbor
Flatten go karts and Bucky Battle. This is where Superman relocates to. The ride would be positioned so it's lift hill faces off with BTRs lift hill.
Repaint V2 blue, remain and retheme it Mr Freeze: Reverse Blast. Put the car on backwards and get the holding brake fixed.

Yukon Territory
Move the bridge up past Goliath and include it into YT. Remove the gladiator theming with a lumberjack theme and rename the ride Timber Wolf (or Splinter Cat if trademarks make it a mess) since it's a wooden coaster that replaced the Iron Wolf.
Fiddler's Fling moved out of the new YT and into SkyTrail's spot.
Flying Scooters in Fiddler's old spot.
Flatten Camp Cartoon and replace with Bugs Bunny National Park, expand it into Wilderness Theatre to create a large children's area where we can relocate and retheme rides from Kidzopolis into so this is the THE kid's area in the park. Include a quick service restaurant inside as well. If space allows bring back the Americ-Go-Round and Jester to be in this area as well

Other park wide changes include:

-Return of more TVs in queues playing Looney Tunes commercials
-No more storage bins at ride platforms and temporary lockers at every ride. This is to improve dispatch times.
-Ride hosts at entrance of queue to measure kids, answer questions and ensure no one is queuing up with backpacks, purses, etc...
-A true separate security check point and entrance for Gold Pass only (3-4 lanes dedicated to only Gold Pass customers)
