"The combination of an NFL stadium and a premier amusement park in one location offers tremendous and exciting opportunities for family entertainment," said Jed York, 49ers team president and CEO. And with that we learn that real estate investment firm JMA Ventures has bowed out on plans to purchase Great America for $70 million.
