Blackstone Group is looking at a possible deal to buy Anheuser-Busch InBev's theme parks, according to reports.

The private equity firm is said to be considering buying theme parks operated under Busch Entertainment Corp, including SeaWorld and Busch Gardens, Dow Jones reported yesterday (23 September), citing unamed sources.

A deal would allow InBev to pay down debt incurred from its US$52bn acquisition of Anheuser-Busch last year. It would also expand Blackstone's investments, which include Universal Studios Orlando and Madame Tussauds wax museums.

Analysts have estimated a Busch sale could fetch between $2bn and $5bn, Dow Jones reported.

It was recently reported that private equity group CVC Capital Partners is currently raising finance to acquire Anheuser-Busch InBev brewing assets in Eastern Europe.

CVC Capital remains intent on buying A-B InBev's Eastern European brewing assets, excluding Sun InBev in Russia and Ukraine.
