    What led to Six Flags' downfall as a company?

    Hi guys. With all this talk of an economic downturn due to coronavirus, Six Flags is a name commonly being thrown around in terms of a theme park company at risk. But they seem to have been a bit up and down over the last decade or two (ironically, their financial state seems to parallel an...

    Six Flags in the UK - Could it ever happen?

    Hey everyone! From just researching theme park stuff tonight, looking into the international expansion of Six Flags, I was just wondering if the company could open a park within the UK? Whilst the plans for parks in Dubai and China have fallen through, I still imagine that the division for...

    What is the most 'average' Six Flags park?

    I have never been to a Six Flags park in my life. I live in the UK and these parks have always seemed quite far away. Whenever I hear about these parks and their rides I often get confused about which is which. How many Batman: The Rides can there be? How many of them are Inverted Coasters and...

    What theme park's entrance is your favourite?

    For me, the parks with the best entrances are: •Islands of Adventure ('The Adventure Begins/Lives On' 🥺 Also the music is great) •Alton Towers (I absolutely love the entrance music here and Towers Street always gets me excited) •PortAventura World (Mediterranìa is a brilliant and beautiful...

    Tall riders on launch coasters

    Hi everyone. New here, but have been enjoying posts for quite some time. I have a question regarding the headrests on Kingda Ka and other launch coasters, like TTD, Maverick, etc. On Stormrunner my head had to be held back, face facing the sky with the top of the headrest poking my head...

    First time Posting - SF Darien Lake

    Well, I went to Six Flags Darien Lake this last week on Friday (7/12/19) and had a pretty good experience up until the end. If you had been in the last few years, you may recall the park becoming more and more like an abandoned park that just happened to have people. The rides were in poor...

    Six Flags: The most Magic of all the Mountains.

    Recently returned from a trip to one of my major bucket list parks, Magic Mountain, and what a trip it was. With a friend in the airline industry I managed to get an ultra cheap flight out to LAX for a two night trip from the UK, an opportunity i absolutely could not turn down. Magic Mountain...

    SFOT | Aquaman: Power Wave | Mack Power Splash

    Hi guys. I was just reading through Screamscape when I found this interesting item from quite a while ago that I'm surprised no one has picked up on: Sounds very interesting, especially if it is to carry the same theme as the ride it is replacing! What do you guys think? P.S. Here's the...

    Six Flags Over Texas Bought By Hershand Family Entertainment?

    I know the only evidence of this is an Instagram story post that I just came across, but apparently, news recently shows that there are current talks for Hershand Family Entertainment to buy Six Flags Over Texas (with the possible mention of St Louis and Over Texas) by 2021 (for Over Texas...

    Mr. Freeze Reverse Blast v. Sky Rocket 2 Model (Tempesto)

    I think both of these coasters are excellent launch coasters. Premier rides did a great job with both. My question to you is which coaster do you prefer. I would have to give the edge to Mr Freeze because of the intense backward launch and i cant get enough of that inverted top hat.

    Geauga Lake/Six Flags Worlds of Adventure

    Recently hearing the news about Firehawk (formerly known as X-Flight at Geauga Lake) at King's Island shutting down, I decided to make this thread. Since Geauga Lake was my home park, I have many fond memories of the park. Sadly, by the time I was tall enough to ride most of the coasters, the...

    Hi guys. Sorry if this already has a thread, but Themed Reality on Facebook has stated that Six Flags may potentially be in talks to buy SeaWorld. They are apparently a very reliable source. Here's what Behind The Thrills had to say on the matter...

    What parks could Six Flags acquire in the future?

    Hi guys. Sorry if there's already a thread like this, but I seem to remember that when Six Flags purchased Waterworld Concord last year and then Darien Lake and co this year, they said that it was part of a strategy to acquire more parks. So; what parks do you guys reckon Six Flags could...

To start, here's the video: Now, if you don't want to watch the video, I'll just quickly summarise what each park...

    New Kid-based SF park for New England?

    Someone on Discord noticed that there was a new page on the Six Flags website, with the tag 'Springfield'. Right now, this website just says "Access Denied", however scrolling down to the bottom gives you some links you're able to click on, including the Rides and Directions tabs. The Rides page...
