Little Enchanted Village has come of age

Posted Monday, August 4, 2003 4:54 AM | Contributed by supermandl34

When Six Flags Theme Parks bought Wild Waves and Enchanted Village in December 2000, expectations were that the amusement park near Federal Way in King County would only get bigger and better. And while the park hasn't yet ballooned to the proportions of some of the other better-known Six Flags properties, such as Magic Mountain in Los Angeles or Great America in Chicago, it has certainly improved over the last three years.

Only what Six Flags can do. Save those mom and poppers from extinction!

And at the same time, they are the ones killing them.

I think if I were to buy any park in the country a couple of years ago it would've been that one. It's ripe for the development and doesn't have significant competition. Of all their acquisitions, I'd have to say this was Six Flags' best one.

I agree with Jeff. The park definitely needed some help too. I remember everyone telling me that Six Flags would ruin the park. I thought, "There's nothing really special about it anyway, so what can they ruin." Had Six Flags bought out Silverwood or Enchanted Forest here in the NW, I would have been upset, but I was estatic when they bought EV. They have done a great job at the park too. There is a lot more landscaping and the general upkeep of the park has improved a lot. Of course the "10 New Rides for 2002" and Timberhawk this year were good additions. The park has turned into a pretty good park for families. Now if they will just add something for us thrillseekers.
