I thought Frontier City was owned by Six Flags?

"Was" would be the operative word. Frontier City, along with several other properties, was sold in, I think, 2007. Today it's owned by CNL Lifestyle Properties, which owns, among other properties, Elitch Gardens, Darien Lake and Great Wolf Lodge in Sandusky and the Dells.

Darien Lake is managed by Herschend....assuming it's better than under CNL (when I last visited).

Darien is still owned by CNL.

Herschend created a subsidiary, FE Management, "...responsible for commercially and creatively managing parks for other operating entities."

Wow I guess I've been a little detached from this coaster enthusiasm stuff for a while now.

In the promotional email sent out today by Great Adventure, they didn't mention it being a coaster at all, which I thought was interesting.

I definitely copy-pasted this before, but it somehow didn't make the cut:

El Diablo Opens May​ 16!
Our all-new ride will debut to the public on Saturday, May​ 16. El Diablo will open its gates to give you a new experience unlike any other at the park. It's now time to check out the giant spiraling loop that will launch you around and around both forward and backward with suspense and excitement. Head to the park early to witness the ribbon cutting and be one of the first to help us kick off this exciting debut as we launch the first train. Pass Holders get to check it out even earlier on May​ 14 and 15.

Herschend ended their management agreement with Darien Lake after last season. They stopped managing the other CNL properties after 2013. Word around the campfire is CNL will be selling the entire portfolio soon; Herschend wanted to buy DL only, CNL wants to sell them a as a group. So Herschend left.

Too bad, Herschend had some neat ideas for Darien Lake. They had done a lot of the infrastructure work that had been neglected the past 10+ years.

Now Premier Parks is managing Darien Lake and several (if not all) other CNL properties.

Premier Parks... Why does that sound familiar? It was founded in 2011 by Kiernan Burke and Gary Story. Premier, Burke, Story. This all sounds so familiar. 😜

I feel like a native Chinese speaker wrote this sentence.
