Six Flags Parks?

Monday, June 3, 2002 10:26 AM
Hey, does anybody know if Six Flags is trying to get parks in all of the states? We need a theme park in Louisiana.

i should think they will only put a park where they see a big enough demand for one.

also, six flags style of late is to buy up existing parks, not start from sctratch as it is to expensive, so unless there is a medium sized park around you, i wouldnt think that six flags will build there soon.

Six Flags is just giving Jazzland money to run the park. Jazzland is 7 hours away from where i live. I think there is enough demand for a theme park in the area. Im from Shreveport, Louisiana. Its metropolitan area has about 400,000 people.

Six Flags is looking to expand Jazzland though. IT was in the Metro two weeks ago with them talking about how good the market in New Orleans would be for a nice family park.

I don't think Shreveport will see a park anytime soon. The high crime rate doesn't exactly attract family attractions. The only way I see one being built in SP is if one of the many casinos decide to build one. But don't forget about the proposed park near Cypress Bayou (which has probably been canceled...sigh).

I doubt We'll ever see Six Flags Anchorage or Six Flags Dakota Adventure, so no, they're not going to put one in every state.

Six Flags has not built their own park in some 30 years. I'd love to see a "Six Flags Wild Wyoming" and then watch it tumble because no one lives there.

Six Flags is following a plan to have a park within an hour of America's 40 most populated metropolitan areas, according to the latest Six Flags annual stock-holder report.

Okay, the millions of us stacked in the Miami-Ft. Lauderdale area are waiting!

I think we'll be waiting along time.

Six Flags Great Lakes Adventure......just doesn't have that ring to it?

Although I wouldn't care what the hell they named it if they built one here in MI.

they do in fact own land next to Cabella's in Dundee Michigan. Who knows what we may see. BTW this is quite factual or was a few years ago. It is/was on the Tax Rolls.

I heard that also w/ SF owning land by Cabela's, I wish whatever they are going to do with it they would do soon.

It would be great having a park only 1½ hours away that wasn't MIA.

Unless there is a park near you now, you will not see one for a while. Buying a park is a hell of a lot easier than starting from scratch. You have to hire new employees, figure out what coasters to put in, see what the public is like, it all adds up. Whereas if you buy a park everything is set for you and you only have to add and buy new uniforms and switch some signs to put Six Flags on them. Most parks that SF builds from scratch are near places that will bring in the profit needed, such as SFMM near L.A.

In my humble (and newly registered) opinion, Six Flags needs to concentrate on the parks they already own. They are my least favorite park chain because:

1. They have the dirtiest parks. For example, on a recent trip to SFoG, I took a soda into the line since I knew I was in for a wait. I ended up holding onto my empty cup for 45 minutes because there were no trash cans in sight in the line. Silly me, I hate throwing my trash on the ground, but there wasn't even a can at the loading station.

2. Ride maintence at the parks I've been to are not good either. SFA's Superman was terribly squeaky and the trains had chipped paint, torn seats, and even had a bumper sticker on the logo on the front of the train.

3. Outrageous parking and lo-q prices make my outing cost almost double my original budget.

4. Maybe this is just me, but doesn't it seem like SF is constantly throwing new "big, bad, never-before-seen" rides that look like a lot of fun but should have stayed on the drawing board a little longer. Deja Vu valleys, X has stress cracks, who even knows why Acrophobia has been closed each time I'm there(maybe they know I want to ride it :-P). I hate driving long distances to only find multiple major rides closed.

Please forgive me being a little bitter. My most recent trip to SFoG found Deja and Acro both closed (same as my trip last year) and the park did not let us in until 10:23am.

Otherwise, everything was peachy and I swear this was a one time thing that has been building up for the past few years. Pay no notice

All parks are not created equal. One trip to SFGAM and you will change your mind forever about the quality of Six Flags parks.
