By Kim Khan – Amusement park stocks jumped sharply Monday on the hopeful market mood that the Covid-19 pandemic is beginning to ease in Europe and could be in major areas of the U.S. as well soon.

Six Flags Entertainment (NYSE:) soared 20% in morning trading and Cedar Fair (NYSE:) rose11.5%. SeaWorld Entertainment (NYSE:) climbed 13%.

Walt Disney (NYSE:), where theme parks are just part of company’s huge revenue stream, gained 2.2%, off the pace of the surge in the broader market.

Six Flags said at the end of March that it expected to keep its parks closed until mid-May.

But shares have shown some resilience as rumors of a possible takeover swirled around the market.
