  1. ^Yeah, I think that is where the first element after the launch will be.
  2. Construction progress from the webcam.
  3. Hopefully the second hotel is one of the Marriott/Westin brands, 107 rooms sounds about right for a Springhill Suites. That rewards program is huge.
  4. This sounds promising, Six Flags Great America is going to invest $15 million in capital improvements not related to rides in the next 7 years. http://www.dailyherald.com/business/20180613/gurnee-to-consider-4-million-tax-incentive-for-great-america http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/lake-county-news-sun/news/ct-lns-gurnee-great-america-improvements-st-0613-story,amp.html

    Six Flags Adds Five More Parks to US Portfolio

    I have a feeling Magic Waters Waterpark in Rockford, IL will be another Six Flags acquisition. https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/illinois/articles/2018-05-24/rockford-park-district-mulls-sale-of-well-known-water-park

    Six Flags Adds Five More Parks to US Portfolio

    ^That’s correct. They said in the presentation today that the parks were selected based on where a lot of single day ticket sales were coming from. People from the Houston area were visiting Fiesta Texas, people from Phoenix were visiting Magic Mountain. A lot of people from Oklahoma come to Arlington for a Cowboys or Rangers game and may be interested in visiting Over Texas next to the stadiums. Darien Lake is close to a few other Six Flags parks. According to the 2017 TEA/AECOM Attendance Report, the water parks in Houston and Phoenix are ranked 12th and 13th for highest attendance in North America.

    Six Flags Adds Five More Parks to US Portfolio

    This regulatory filing shows that Six Flags paid approximately $23 million to acquire these leases. http://otp.investis.com/clients/us/sixflags1/SEC/sec-show.aspx?Type=page&FilingId=12772121-4024-7732&CIK=0000701374&Index=11100 Here is some more info from the B. Riley Investor Conference this morning. Six Flags beleives they will make back the $23 million in 3 years. These are multi decade leases. Combo Passes will be sold between Wet N' Wild Phoenix and Magic Mountain Combo Passes will be sold between the OKC and Dallas parks. Combo Passes will be sold between Wet N' Wild Splashtown and Fiesta Texas and possibly Wet N' Wild Splashtown and Over Texas. Darien Lake offers similar opportunities.

    Between this deal and Waterworld California deal, it seems like Six Flags is developing a good relationship with EPR Properties. I would keep an eye on what happens with Schlitterbahn Kansas City because EPR is the debt holder and could take ownership of three of the parks. http://www.kansascity.com/news/article208441519.html

    I would assume so. More importantly, I am hopeful they will buy a second train for Ride of Steel now.
  10. Wow!! This is a pretty big move. http://investors.sixflags.com/news-and-events/press-releases/2018/05-22-2018-210951050

    2019 and Beyond Speculation at SFGA

    That isn’t true, the RMC Raptor was designed for small parks and big parks according to the video linked below. https://vimeo.com/155035864
  12. I think Time Warner Entertainment helped the parks they owned outright, but it was proven in court that they caused a lot of harm to Six Flags Over Georgia in an attempt to undervalue the park. https://www.butlerwootenpeak.com/wp-content/uploads/pdf/1998-12-22.pdf https://caselaw.findlaw.com/ga-court-of-appeals/1315914.html

    I was surprised two of the tents were fenced off. https://m.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2194198137262926&id=100000182822669&set=gm.1500236033418684&source=48&refid=18&ref=group_header&_ft_=qid.6556964457565711122%3Amf_story_key.1500236033418684%3Atop_level_post_id.1500236033418684%3Atl_objid.1500236033418684%3Asrc.22&__tn__=EH-R

    Here is another idea based on the location of the newly fenced off areas. A RMC Raptor replaces the old arcade/paintball building and two tents and the Tea Cups move to Golden Kingdom where the Splash Water Oasis is. The current location of the Tea Cups becomes a gift shop like they built at Fiesta Texas.

    2017 Attendance Report is out

    Justice League didn’t appear to boost attendance much at Magic Mountain or Great Adventure. Great America’s increase is probably explained by opening a couple of weeks early in April 2017 and closing a couple of weeks later in November. I was most impressed by the 5% increase at Six Flags Mexico with the only additions being VR and Mardi Gras Festival. It’s possible that selling combo passes with Hurricane Harbor Oaxtepec helped increase attendance.
