  2. https://dfw.cbslocal.com/2019/10/15/heading-west-six-flags-corporate-hq-to-move-from-grand-prairie-to-globe-life-park/ Here is the lease agreement: https://legistarweb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/attachment/pdf/451856/SR_Six_Flags_Chapter_380_Agreement_10-15-19__BP_10-9___3_.pdf
  3. This would put the headquarters across the street from Six Flags Over Texas. https://dfw.cbslocal.com/2019/10/15/six-flags-looks-to-move-hq-to-globe-life-park-arlington/
  4. I wonder if Six Flags would be interested in operating La Feria De Chapultepec. It is really close to Six Flags Mexico, but has almost 1.6 million visitors per year according to TEA/AECOM. The Mexican government just revoked the operating permit from the current operator after a fatal rollercoaster accident.

  6. I still think the best fit for Six Flags is the Palace Entertainment parks. Now that we know what type of price Cedar Fair is looking for, I could see Scott Ross attempting a bid to merge SeaWorld with Cedar Fair and having the Cedar Fair executives take over management of the new company. Scott Ross was involved in Apollo's attempted $2.4 billion buyout of Cedar Fair in 2010.
  7. S&S built a new prototype coaster and it appears to be a compressed air launch with a new seating arrangement. Note: you can see the Steeplechase prototype in the background. Source: https://www.facebook.com/SandSSansei/posts/1210914462414640
  8. On the last earnings call, Six Flags said there is a lot of interest in the CEO position and they were in the process of interviewing people. In 2009, the two parks Cedar Fair wanted to sell were Valleyfair and Worlds of Fun. Considering the current state of Kings Dominion and the buildup of Busch Gardens Williamsburg, I wouldn't be surprised if Cedar Fair was willing to part with Kings Dominion. https://www.mprnews.org/story/2009/03/09/valleyfair_sale

  11. And we have some smoke, Cedar Fair backed out of the investor conference that was supposed to start 14 minutes ago. I guess they don't want to answer any questions about this. I woke up early to listen to the webcast and all links to the conference were deleted from Cedar Fair's investor page this morning. https://seekingalpha.com/news/3503666-cedar-fair-said-skipping-conference-today https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20190927005044/en/Cedar-Fair-Executives-Participate-B.-Riley-FBR
  12. ^SFGAm/Cedar Point would be another one. Cedar Point does a lot of radio and television marketing in the Chicago/Northern Illinois area and it has been increasing over the last few years.
  13. Six Flags had a conference at Kings Island recently.

  14. I would be more concerned about California's Great America than Dorney. I think Dorney would fit right into the Six Flags strategy and wouldn't require heavy investment. California's Great America is in a state of disrepair and will require a substantial investment over many years. It is also much closer to Discovery Kingdom than Dorney is to Great Adventure. If this deal went through, it might make sense to sell off some parks to pay down debt. I could see Great Adventure being sold to SeaWorld, due to the amount of money it would bring in. Something feels off about this rumor. I wonder if Six Flags simply approached Cedar Fair to purchase some of their lower tier parks and it was misinterpreted as Six Flags making an offer for the whole company.
