Six Flags Wyandot Lake ?

Monday, January 21, 2002 1:00 PM
Has anyone heard if Wyandot lake would be getting any new rides, or anyone heard rumors? Thanks!

I highly doubt it, and I also doubt it'll ever be a Six Flags.  The park has no room for expansion.  It's surrounded by the parking lot of the zoo and a very busy highway.  And on the other side of the highway is a reservoir, so forget tunneling under.

Not quite, it's a Six flags property, but not a Six Flags park.

It was bought by Funtime (Geauga Lake, Darien Lake) which was bought by Premier, which bought Six Flags. All their properties say Six Flags [property name] .

It was part of funtime and premier along with Geauga Lake and I believe Darien Lake.  So when premier bought out SF it became SF property.  Thus DL becoming SFDL and GL becoming SFO.

No BigKirby.   The Great Escape, Wyandot Lake, and Frontier city do not say Six Flags ____.  Check the offi8cial site if you don't believe me.

FunTime was hired by the City of Columbus/Columbus Zoo to operate the Zoo Amusement Park and to develop the property. That's how it ended up in the Six Flags family of parks.

As for new additions...the adjacent golf course is owned by the City, as is a quite a lot of land behind the parking lot (Wyandot's present boneyard and last season's parking lot expansion). There is an expansion plan which involves relocating the parking lot entrance to the other side of the park (at the traffic light) and expanding the park into part of the present golf course.

Amusement Today let it slip that Reverchon is apparently building a Hopkins rapid river ride "for the Columbus Zoo." Now, I haven't heard of the Zoo putting in a rapids ride. I wonder which property is getting the rapids...the Zoo...or Wyandot Lake which is already mostly a water park and could do well with a good rapids ride...

Dave, I read that same article in AT, so I did a little digging. It turns out that the zoo is adding a water ride as part of their new Islands of Southeast Asia exhibit.  But the way it is described -- "a narrated boat ride will take visitors floating down the waterway and provide a different view of the exhibits" -- doesn't sound like a rapids ride to me. I, too, am wondering if the ride might actually be headed for Wyandot Lake.

Speaking of Wyandot Lake. I came across a Columbus guidebook the other day (1980) and it had a little blurb about "Zoo Amusements." It didn't say much but it mentioned the old ice skating rink building and the carousel were moved from the defunct Olentangy Park.

My question is does this building still exist? The only structure at Wyandot that appears to be old enough is the arcade building but that would have made a pretty small rink.

Anybody have old picture of Wyandot Lake?

Peabody's right, The Great Escape, Wyandot Lake, and Frontier City are only Six Flags properties. Allthough its rumored that Great Escape will be branded a full fledged Six Flags park eithier this season or next.

For all intents and purposes, Wyandot Lake and The Great Escape ARE Six Flags parks. Frontier City, OTOH, is not. Why do I say this? I'm glad you asked. As of the 2001 season (and it's possible things may change), if one owned a GE or WL season pass, that person could use that pass to get into all the "branded" parks (like SFA, SFoG, SFEG) as well as getting into both WL and GE. HOWEVER, a Frontier City pass was good for FC ONLY.

My question is though can I use my SFA pass @ Six Flags Mexico...

I hope Wyandot lake adds a new ride, it doesn't matter what, just anything! I am getting sick of the rides there already, I want the Rock-O-Plane back (the Barracuda was it's name).

I've never been there, but as far as making room for expansion, they could build a parking garage. In fact, I don't know why more parks don't do that.

jeremy,. I am by no means sure, but Six Flags passes for some reason I think are good at all North American properties.  Paramount's I am quite sure, OTOH, are good are Paramount parks worldwide (or universally, you might say)...

rollergator & Jeremy-

SF season passes are good at ALL Six Flags Parks/ properties EXCEPT Frontier City & La Ronde. This includes SFMexico,SF Holland, SF Belgium, SFMM, SFMW, SFoG, etc etc. Why not Frontier City? Glad you asked. But I dont have an answer for that one.

If you visit the main season pass link on the SF web site it lists all the valid parks individually, and invalid parks (which include non-attatched water parks also (ie Huricane Harbor next to SFMM requires a seperate pass)

Look at it this way guys:

Six Flags owns properties(small parks) for one reason if they are not going to be upgraded to an officall Six Flags Park, Assets. The more you own, the more you are worth.

But I don't think that is going to help much with their huge Debt
