Does anyone know if Dreamworks has a relationship with one or more theme parks?
Disney�s ability to push their characters in front of million of people each year does an incredible amount to strengthen their franchises (Anyone else looking forward to the nemo submarine ride at Disneyland?).
IMHO, if Dreamworks doesn�t have a partnership with Six Flags or Cedar Fair or one of the other big players then they should consider it.
In fact, a merger with either SIX or FUN (or both) could go a long ways towards building the next big entertainment empire.
