Six Flags Parks that Should be Core Parks

Sunday, October 28, 2001 1:15 PM
SFMM is oviously a 'Core' Park for Six Flags, one which they put a lot of money into. What other parks should be invested in similar to what is being done with SFMM? (do not say St. Louis or any other tier3 city park, thats just foolish)

SFWoA obviusly is another core park, the largest (developed land) of the SF parks (750 acres) it also has gotten 5 coasters in 2 years.  Oh yeah a 110,000,000 park was bought.  The park was doubled in size and a hyper and a 50 acre volcano are being added.  I thiink SFGAdv is the other core park.  I think SF's master map plan is to have 4 major US parks in each area (SFMM west, SFOT SW, SFWoA MW, SFGAdv E/NE)

I'd have to agree with you GeaugasViewWeb...except I think that SFA should be added to that list. If SFMW gets a couple new coasters, it could be one to. Unfortuanatly I dont think marine world will get anymore since it's lack of space, turning it into another SFEG or SFAW.

How does Ohio get such amazing parks? What major markets are arround Ohio??

SFGAm just because of Chicago should be the MW core market.. Actuially it's near Tier 1, 2, and 3 Cities (Chicago, Milwaukee, and then Madison/Perroria/Rockford) whereas the ohio parks are near a few Tier 2 cities..

I would think that SFOT would be a good candidate to be a core park, considering the history and the fact that it is still considered by some to be the flagship of the Six Flags chain.  However, they have very little room for much more expansion.

I can't believe my eyes..... only one person has mentioned a very small amount about SFGAd. It is one of the oldest parks with the second most amount of coasters if I'm not mistaken and is one of the SF parks with the most rides. SFGAd has been a staple park for a long time. It is absolutely at the tops of the list right behind SFMM and SFA (because all of you know that SFA has exploded with coasters and will continue to explode with coasters and rides for years to come with all that empty land that they have.)

Ohio does have a huge population though, plus detroit isnt too far away, there is a huge population within 200 miles of CP I would say upwards of 15 million people or so.

Detroit metro is 5 million or so so is cleaveland, and columbus.  its basically one big city on Lake Erie all the way from detroit to cleveland. Huge Population base.

Way too true!  I hate using this phrase but Ohio is "The Heart of it All."  Ohio is pretty much the center of the eastern half of the U.S.  I think SF realized this when the turned Geauga Lake into SFWOA.

Ohioans are big on vacationing, and SF knew if they were to compete at all with Paramount and Cedar Fair (BOTH chains "core" parks are in OH), they were gonna have to sink in a LOT of money and great rides.  BTW, they did great in terms of rides, but staffing/customer relations is definitely Six Flags (same old Story, LOL...inside joke).  SFoG, SFGAdv,  SFWoA, SFGAm, SFOT (as the "soul" of SF) will continue to grow and prosper, in addition to SF's flagship of SFMM. SFA will also have to stay competitive with PKD (they DO get great rides).

ACE15, I think you read the original statement wrong. Obviously Great Adventure is the east coast twin to SFMM in terms of importance.

People say SFDL has a ton of land. If there is ever any competition that Six Flags sees, this could become a core park with S:ROS and all the open land.

Am I the only one that thinks that think the answer is obvious?

 

Core: SFMM, SFGAm, SFGAdv. (they consistently get a really big or a bunch of smaller rides each year)

SFWoA is kinda of in here because it gets a lot of rides, but it still isn't as big a park as SFMM, SFGAm, or SFGAdv.

2nd tier: SFA, SFMW, SFNE, SFOT (get a big one every now and then)

3rd: The rest

I think it's tough to leave SFoG out of this.  They are kind of out on their own little island in Atlanta.  I'd venture to say that the closest park to them is either SFKK or SFAW, so that ought to say a lot about how important the Atlanta branch is.  And although SFNE has S:ROS (arguably the best of the bunch) and a small new floorless (as yet unconfirmed), you'd still have them on the second tier with SFoG not even mentioned?

CoasterGuy1515: I doubt SFMW will ever turn into a SFAW or SFEG. I mean it already has an Impulse, a Floorless, and GCI Woodie. Plus it has loads of animals that SF is maintaining very well and the GP still enjoys them. And I'll bet a load of money that one day SF will acquire the fairgrounds, and voila, that almost triples the size of the park.
