I'd be willing to bet that Six Flags priced themselves out of the market simply to remove themselves from all responsibilities in europe. If this supposition is correct, it's probably a good move, allowing Six Flags to focus more on their stateside operations.
Lets hope they have the forethought to not try to build a Hong Kong park, and possibly further distance themselves from improving their current problem parks.
I agree! It Seems that SF cant do anything Right nowadays. I think that SF thinks that if they laydown Huge Expen$ive Roller Caosters then people will Come. And that is NOT always the case! I mean how could u have over 40 million in debt after 2 years of operation. That seem quite rediculous.
It's fair enough that you all slag Six Flags off - but remember they were responsible for the installation of the rides in that park which is one of the most awesome lineups in Europe. They just built a great park but did not market it as they should have done. 1.1mil guests a season is appalling for a park of that scale.
Warner Brothers Movie World was badly designed to start with. The GIB (Stunt Fall) was supposed to be a dark ride or show housed in a replica of Mann's Chinese Theater. Guess what? Stunt Fall is a walk on most of the time (2 hours marathon done by many, many fans.. that's how bad it is!) and the lone "dark ride", which is a Vekoma Mad House, get hour to 2 hours waits... The 2 B&M never gets long lines, but the tame, family woodie gets insane lines.
Its should have been a park full of family rides, with 1 or 2 thrill rides... not the opposite!
WBMW's not exactly badly designed - but like you say, not suitable for the country. This is a similar case to how Disneyland Paris opened - the French didnt like the American Culture. If the park was built in the UK then I reckon it would be permanently packed.
