Well, there is a little park near L.A. called Six Flags Magic Mountain. Also SFGadv is huge in terms of both land and rides.
There are currently 11 coasters with the name Batman, 8 with the name Superman and 22 with the name Boomerang. Batman and Superman: The Ultimate Chiller Knight Flight Krypton Escape Ride.

"Biggest" is a pretty general word... You could mean by popularity or by sheer size, neither of which SFWoA is the leader in...

No it's far from it. If you mean size wise than possibly. I mean it's a wild like place it's a sea world. Never been there, but it seems big.

where did you get that info?
Tuesday, May 8, 2001 7:34 PM
Yeah especially about the attendance? I believe MM has been among the top 10 parks in the world as far as attendance. Behind Disney, CP, and some Universal parks.

- There was a news article about attendance a while ago, and Great Adventure was the highest ranked Six Flags park. Those stats came directly from an Amusement Business article.
- The ride park, the animal safari, and the water park take up over 1000 acres combined, easily the biggest in the chain (though SFWoA isn't too far behind). Like I said, though, a huge chunk of that is the safari park. I think you can find that info on the park's website.
- I don't have an exact place to point you to for number of rides, but I know that I read that many times on these boards and others. Anyone know if that is not right? I know they added a ton of flats a couple of years ago.
- And number of coasters, obviously, comes from the fact that MM will have the world record when X is finished.

Here's the link to the news thread with attendance figures for the top 25 most visited parks: http://www.coasterbuzz.com/news/news.asp?NewsID=1001
Scroll down a bit, it's in one of my posts.
As you can see, Disney, Universal, and Anheuser-Busch own the top 11. And like I said, Great Adventure is the top ranked Six Flags park.

SFGADV has more acreage than the other six flags parks. It is still the flagship of the chain as well at least according to their latest advertising promo in our area. Six flags is also now advertising Great Adventure as the mother of all coaster parks. What that means now and for the future is up in the air but, usually they don't add an advertising slogan without acting on it accordingly.

I think that SixFlags will make SFWOA the flag ship just because Cedarpoint and Kingsisland are both in Ohio.BIG COMPETION!
Long live the Phantom!
