I notice they have already rolled out new logos for the parks and made small changes to the websites to debrand them. Interesting that so far they are keeping the old Six Flags layout though...

Websites for the old parks are gone from the six flags domain now, as is any mention of the old parks.

I'm sure the conversion will take a little while.

Here's hoping the management of FC and SFDL changes as fast as SF's website did! ;)

From what I heard about SF, they bought Lake Winnie this past year.

Their official websites... their new logos.

They're not all identical like the Premier days or even the Six Flags days.

Elitch Gardens seems to spew a happy atmosphere in a welcome environment with a urban setting.

The Darien Lake logo, on the other hand, seems to spew out as a coaster-capital fun park. The main logo is surrounded by coasters here & there & everywhere, like it's the next Magic Mountain or Cedar Point or something! Kinda mis-leading unless PARC has some big plans for it next year.

By the way, rumor has it that the new name for Darien Lake's "Superman: Ride of Steel" is goign to be....
"Ride of Steel".

FYI, when you click on the buy Tickets link it takes you to the Six Flags website where you can buy tickets. And as for the Six Flags website, all the Parks are still listed but they are all at the very bottom of the list referred to as Other Parks.

Hehe, it is kinda fun to click into "pass purchasing" and immedaitely get hit by the SF storefront... :)

I'm impressed they got the main pages fixed that quick....go PARC!

Hopefully this means some of these parks will get a much needed shot in the arm. I'm surprised Six Flags even remembered that it owned Frontier City.

Thanks for providing the links, looks like the sites are up, and they are going to do a good job at taking care of the parks, unlike SF. I think they will do great this year.
