six flags regional office

Wednesday, October 8, 2003 7:14 PM
ok so I am birmingham, al right. Anyway I was looking in the phone book for something and I happen to see something that says "Six Flags Birmingham Regional Office". I had no idea what that was so I called the number and got a voice saying "I cant come to the phone right now, if you would like general park info call (some Atlanta number)"

Does anyone know what this is or if any more of these exist?

Maybe it's for the NE parks.. Because i'm pretty sure the main Six Flags building is in Oklahoma.

But why would it be northeast parks in Birmingham, AL?

I work at the main office. Yes it is here in Oklahoma City.. Actually, a little closer to Edmond, OK, which is the home of most pro golfers, by the way. All Six Flags employees here really like golf.

Please. The most you do for the Six Flags Corporate Office is take out the trash and clean their toilets.

Can SF afford landscaping and janitorial services with their money problems? :)

Now I know why I dont work for SF corporate. I don't like golf. :)

They are sales offices.

I'm not too sure I believe that one. You don't appear to be much older than 16 years old, not really sure how you could be working in a corporate office, other than doing some sort of intern work or like someone else said mowing the lawn or taking trash out.

Seems to me, one sided soldier didn't make any extravagant claims. He just said he works there and where the headquarters is located. No need to dump on him for that.

'zactly, Jim. I didn't see where he said he was the CEO or COO or anything....and "working there" is certainly not a bad way to start.

bill, not really good at golf, but willing to learn....;)

I think he meant he works in Edmond itself, not at the SF offiice.

Yeesh... and people wonder why enthusiasts are seen as having superiority problems?

Six Flags makes it a habit of having people work in "key markets" that are in close proximity to a park. Think of them as telecommuters. Until Six Flags New Orleans opened, AstroWorld had a regional sales office in New Orleans who would handle sales.

How else is anyone supposed to interpret "I work at the main office"?

Interpretation: I am a coaster enthusiast / ACE member who wants everyone to think I 'know it all'. I have ZERO knowledge of what it takes to operate a park, even though I have spent a handfull of minutes of my life in the presence of an owner or a GM or a designer, who gave a few happy stories so I would go away.

I then make comments to the general public, whether it is in a q-line, on a web site, or God forbid, on television, and even out on limbat trade show armed with nothing but Bull****, and then wonder why people question my topics.

That is how to interpret that comment.

So because I question someone's difficult-to-believe-claim (especially when he looks all of sixteen years old) that makes me a coaster enthusiast jackass who makes comments to GP and such? Please.

Talk about a superiority problem.

No. The person who anonymously states that he works at the main office would be the tool.

I dunno... all the guy said was that he works at the main office. I don't think there is anything more to be read into that statement besides the fact that he indeed works for the main office!

I guess I'm not the only one without anything better to do on a Friday afternoon? ;)
