Six Flags, Inc. announced today that its overall guest approval ratings for the 2007 peak operating season, which extends from Memorial Day to Labor Day, ended at or above all-time highs; additionally, guest approval ratings for August 2007 showed a dramatic improvement over the same period last year.

Read the press release from PR Newswire via CNN.

Let's hope those "happier" guests spent more money in the parks this year. You would think that would be the case, and that the two would be related.

^^Count me and my girlfriend, and my sisters and their families of 4 and 3 (with little kids) as those who have!! If anything, I also think the increased money spent has been in the form of an increase in park visits this year.

I think that the message that they are trying to convey is, "Some people don't think that we suck as much as last year."

...approval ratings for the 2007 peak operating season...ended at or above all-time highs...

"AT OR ABOVE." Show me the numbers. Was it 5 out of 10 approved last year and now its 6 out of 10? Did I skip over the actual numbers part of the article.

I wish the chain luck, but considering past experiences, I'm not comfortable with handing over my $105+TAX one day park admission fee just yet.

I definitely had a much better time at Great Adventure then I've ever had before--period--in July. With the exception of one ride, the crews worked effeciently and seemed relatively happy, the park was clean, and the only person I saw smoking outside of a non-smoking area was a father in Wiggles World.

Kingda Ka, while having some downtime, managed to keep on running through close, while it's next-door neighbor S:UF did not. What in the heck is wrong with that ride? It's always breaking down.

The Skyway was open and everything else was open as well. My only dissatisfaction was with food prices, which I though even for the area were way out-of-line.

SFA did not fair as well in my assesment based on my two late-August visits (so maybe it's not a fair comparison). The park continues to struggle with under-staffing due to an early return to school in that county, as well as, any college students who might have been working there.

In my opinion, even though it was really hot, they should shutdown Hurricane Harbor before they lose the students, not after.
