Amusement Park Companies

Tuesday, May 7, 2002 1:39 PM

Well I don't think this has been discussed before, (if so could somebody give me the link to the previous forum) but anyway.....I'm working on something, and I need to know all of the major amusement park companies. i.e. Cedar Fair, Six Flags etc.....

If somebody could type them up possibly or something, or type a link to a site that shows them, I would be a happy camper. :) Thanks in advance!

Seasame Place is a Busch property.

The word "definitely" is definitely the most misspelled word on the buzz.

Six Flags started off under a parent company, Great Southwestern Corporation (Angus Wynne controlled it). Later it just became "Six Flags," and finally was purchased by Time Warner. Even later, Premier bought the entire family of parks, and once again changed has changed to simply "Six Flags."

That's a sort-of history of the company. Don't quote me on it, it's not terribly accurate.

Nice list, though only about 7 make a profit. And whoever made that crack on Dutch Wonderland..., well, YOU own a better park?
