I think right now they are going to start converting some of the parks they own that are NOT six flags into Six Flags parks. These include La Ronde, The Great Escape, and others.

Six Flags should not buy anything more and just concentrate on fixing up its current properties that have been left alone for the past year or two (hmmm, can we all say SFDL, SFEG, and Great Escape??)...
After all the parks are up to par, then yeah... go ahead and start playing Bill Gates and buy everyone else out!
Well, given the rumors that they're interested in owning a park in El Paso, I'm voting for Western Playland, and I certainly hope that they go through with it too, be it giving the existing park a Six Flags facelift, or building an additional park there from scratch. But Florida? Why on Earth does Six Flags need to have a park in Florida? Isn't FOUR 7 inversion coasters in one state enough? How could they possibly need another company to build MORE world class rides there? I have to agree with Dawg Byte. What they really need to do is start improving the parks they own that have just been sitting there for years, but he forgot to put SFAW at the top of the list! They could at least give all of AstroWorld's coasters the new paintjob that most of them so desperately need. Indeed, being aquired by Six Flags spells DOOM for some parks!
