Global Estudios, the Madrid-based theme-park consultancy, has been appointed to manage the theme park formerly known as Warner Bros. Movie World Madrid. Now called Warner Bros. Park, it is the only one of the European parks that Six Flags Inc. did not sell to U.K. equity investment house Palamon Capital Partners last year.

What a mess! All of those rides were custom designed to fit in with the Six Flags brand. Can you imagine untheming Batman's castle, or the factory around Superman?

^ It just happened in the other european parks that used to be owned by SF. Its quite easy to "un-theme" the rides since most of the SF themeing consists of generic/urban deco which can be re-used easily. All in all: Just re-name it!

Bugs Bunny World used to become even more colourful with new fantasy characters, or adding different popular characters (In Germany they threw out the Loony Tunes 4d film and added Spongebob. The Bugs Bunny River Caves have now become the "Ice Age Adventure" (using the animated movie characters) and so on.

Geauga Lake did it and the park is fine. Check out Dominator (formerly Batman Knight Flight).

There's also La Vampire (a clone Batman coaster) at SF La Ronde. Unlike other SF parks, La Ronde doesn't have rights to Batman. But La Vampire still has a bat symbol (like the Batman logo stretched vertically) in it's theming. It's not that hard to do.
