That money, along with about $1.27 in new debt, was used to pay off creditors and finance the company as its main summer season nears. Six Flags entered bankruptcy with $2.7 billion in debt and obligations from redeemable securities.

They went from 2.7 billion dollars to a buck twenty-seven? I'd say that's less than half. If they can't pay that off I can probably grab some change out of my kid's piggy bank...
