http://www.parktimes.com pretty much covers everything you'd ever want to know on this subject.

Although it does provide some good background information, this webpage does not make one mention of SFoG. When did SFoG first open? I know it was during or before 1967 because that was when their mine train coaster was built. And I'm pretty sure it was a Six Flags park as far back as 1973 when GASM was built.

Syntax: The Dahaglona (sp?) mine train open with the park. And the park has always been a Six Flags Park (I believe only Georgia, Texas, and Mid-America [STL] have been Six Flags since birth, though Astroworld *might* be also).

Astroworld was built by Judge Roy Hofheinz and was aquired by Six Flags after it had been up and running for some years. 2Hostyl is correct. There were only three "true" Six Flags parks. #1- SFoT,#2-SFoG,and #3-SFoMA. All the other parks(Great Adventure,Astroworld and Magic Mountain )were bought after they were built.

SFoG was the second Six Flags park in the world. After Six Flags Texas. Astroworld was purchused from a another chain or owner, I belive. I can't belive that the web site does not mention SFoG.

SFG was actually owned by a local partnership. They held the land deed. It is some crazy deal that has just been finalized in court. There was a pending lawsuit that has lasted about 4 years, charging SF, Inc. has held back deveopement of SFG, therefore bringing down the value of the property. It cost Premier Parks just a bit more money for the park, as they had to do a 'lease to own' buyout of the land. I believe they now know everything. Why is it not on their history must just be an oversight, as that is one great park.
