Complicating the jurisdictional conflicts of Six Flags Worlds of Adventure, which resides in the City of Aurora and Bainbridge Township, while drawing traffic through the City of Solon, Aurora says the park is obligated to pay admission taxes on the entire park due to an existing agreement with the former Sea World of Ohio.
