It looks like the new notes were issued at an interest rate of 12 1/4%.

Wow, I've heard of junk bonds but that must qualify as sh*t bonds. I guess Tony Soprano must have financed the new loan. Or else Six Flags put the debt on their credit cards.

Ouch, my credit card is like 9.2%, and that's the crappiest kind of debt you can have (but maybe it's low because I don't carry a balance). I suppose with their rating being dropped every couple of months, what can you expect?
