I imagine the KCK park will be sold before this is all over.

It will join the long list for former amusement parks in the area.

Schlitterbahn quiet on summer plans for KCK water park
...
A Schlitterbahn spokeswoman told The Kansas City Star that there was no news about the local water park. But tickets are not for sale on the local park’s website and a Schlitterbahn job website lists no positions available in KCK, The Star reports.

I think it's been obvious for a year that Schlitterbahn has no interest in re-opening the park. It won't open this year at all and will probably re-open under new ownership (possibly as a city owned waterpark) the following year. If it sits vacant more than a year, it will likely be torn down completely due to deterioration. But Schlitterbahn is done with Kansas. That's for sure.

Cedar Fair has a preliminary agreement to buy all but the Galveston Schlitterbahn location. Cedar Fair has some pretty deep pockets if they wanted to keep and invest in the KCK location, but I'm not sure they'd keep it open given they already own Oceans of Fun. Even if they do keep it open, the days of free parking and bringing in outside coolers will be over.
