I say it isn't happening. The new management hasn't even had a good 2 year run with the chain of parks, so I doubt a brand new Six Flags theme park is in the works. A LOT has to be fixed with the current parks and I'm sure the last thing on management mind is to buy another park let alone a new one built from the ground up.
And keep in mind, they're still carrying a $1.9 billion debt load and that was AFTER they recently completed the sale of 7 properties.
Six Flags as a name brand and company has not built a park from scratch since the 1960's and I don't think they're going to start now.
The last thing Six Flags would do would be incur more debt and dig themselves into a bigger hole. No way.
The last thing they SHOULD do is incur more debt but historically they haven't exactly done a good job of avoiding that. ;)

Are you guys referring to the sale of Darien Lake? Isn't Darien Lake in Western New York--or perhaps Central New York? I always thought Upstate New York was the Northeast corner of the state, East of Lake Ontario and North of its southern shore.
Darien Lake is East of Buffalo.
It would be considered to be in the Northwest part of New York.
why would six flags sell one upstate property and just buy another? that makes no sense.
Sounds like Six Flags to me. It's like buying SeaWorld and selling it a few years later at a big loss.
I've always considered upstate NY to be any New York land above NYC. That's what my NYC friends have always said. :)

I bet what your girlfriend's father meant was a park like Six Flags.
Wow you mean someone wants to build a park with closed rides, trash filled midways, surly employees and poor customer service? I'd think Shapiro would sue for copyright infringement. ;) *** Edited 4/27/2007 9:58:29 PM UTC by RatherGoodBear***
Heck even the space shuttle looper was open when I went.
