Six Flags faces make or break year

Posted Friday, May 15, 2009 10:32 AM | Contributed by Jeff

As Six Flags prepares for a make-or-break season, it may have budget travellers and "staycationers" on its side. Six Flags Chief Executive Mark Shapiro said travellers are looking for value and that means he is "cautiously optimistic" about the theme park's prospects this summer.

Well, when the going gets tougher...

i guess Mr Six better bust some serious moves to pull this one off.

I wish i could help them out, but there's no Six Flags parks within 4 hours of me.

I'm thinking about a trip to SFNE once the water park opens. Maybe July. I've never been and I'd like to ride the coaster the beat Melenium Force for best steel.

"Melenium Force?" Seriously? After eight years?

Don't be so hard on yourself. You've ridden more coasters. The g-forces probably corrupted some of the data in your head.

Jeff was commenting on how you spelled MF wrong. It is Millennium Force, not "Melenium Force".

Too funny.

Are you sure the damage wasn't done by the head smacking?

I actually don't think he did. I think he thought after Jeff said "still after 8 years" he thought he meant he hasn't ridden it yet and it's been around for 8 years.

Well, if Jeff hasn't ridden MF, how can he say Superman's better?

Conversly, I haven't ridden Superman, so I can't say MF is better than Superman.

I actually thought these comments were about the article/video. But I suppose there isn't much more to talk about on the Six Flags bankrupcy topic.

I thought for sure Shapiro would have issued a press release naming "Six Flags Official Swine Flu Facemask Partner."

Oh, and about the previous exchange... "Say Goodnight, Gracie."
