"Six Flags is very considerate of the local history and culture of new countries and markets where we operate parks."

Anyone else see the humor in that?

Not really. They have been restoring a colonial era mansion on the grounds of Six Flags America for the past several years.

Hi, my name is Eric, and I am a coaster junkie.

I'll be making a trip down to SF Mexico later this year, and it will be interesting to see the "look" of the park.

Why does Six Flags seem to take better care of parks in other countries?!

It's my opinion!
You ain't going to change it!
Why even try?

We smile very considerately and speak slowly and loudly as we remodel your park to look like all our others. =)

Anyone care to bet if Six Flags will have Looney Toons as part of their 'vision' for La Ronde? If so, will Pepe LaPew be featured?

People Six FLags like to expand its parks in other countries and it gives more options if you go to the country.

Like i've been to 3 Canada provinces and i like to see a Six Flags park in all countries ( except bad ones)

Six Flags does a real great job of cleaning up a park that needs to be clean up for ex. Six Flags Mexico, and other parks as well. Cedar Fair LTD does a real awsome job of keeping up of old historical theme area like Knott's.

Now would you rather have more parks to visit around the world than just the one next door...

And they are very considerate of keeping up with city traditions and park, unlike Disney

Why do people start posts with "people?" Are they talking down to us or discriminating against animals and extra-terrestrials that might be reading?

While the improvements to The Park Formerly Known as Geauga Lake have been good in the way of rides, the Geauga Lake we all grew up with is gone, save for the Big Dipper. Tradition my turd cutter.

Any Elitch Gardens fans want to comment? I'll take cover now.

Jeff (who also wonders what "Cedar Fair LTD" is... a new car perhaps?)

SFEG is my homepark, and it really hasn't changed that much IMO since Six Flags took over. They added a Batman stunt show and a looney toons land, and built Boomerang. The real change in EG (from what I've learned) came when they made the move to downtown Denver, not when they were bought out by Premier. All of their tradition was lost in the move...

Any idea what rides they'll keep and which they'll get rid of? I think they should definitely keep LE MONSTRE, LE COBRA, LE BOOMERANG, LE SUPER MANÈGE, DRAGON, SUPER VOLCANOZOR 3D, LA PITOUNE, MINIRAIL, and MOULIN DE SORCIÈRE (House of Horrors). What do you all think? I just don't want them to lose their coasters and dark rides more than anything else.

that was the worst dark ride i've ever been in... I've seen better at fairs

One ride they don't have that they could use would be a white water river ride. As for the dark rides, along with coasters, they are my favorite kinds of rides which is why I wish Cedar Point never got rid of the pirate ride to turn it into an arcade.
