Though it's also considerably out of the way.


Yeah, I'm going to Laronde next year, but I'll be going to SFKK and possibly SFGAdv before that. SFKK's pass is the same price DL's was.

Who and what is Parc 7F? I searched online to see if I could find out if these guys own and opperate any other theme parks but found nothing. Anyone know or heard of this group?

We can never now what is REALLY behind this step. They can tell us all kind fo stories but in 5 years we will be all wiser with the truth behind it all.


No, SFoT, oG, and STL are the core of Six Flags, being the original three parks.


SFMM is more like a symbol of what's wrong with Six Flags as a company.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

And in recent years SFGAM,SFGADV, and SFoG have pretty much taken over as the flagship parks.

SFMM hasn't been Six Flags prime asset for quite awhile.

^^
I dont think a core for the company can be determined just by which are the original parks. Some or many would argue your core assets of any company are those that draw the most money. Thus parks like Magic Mountain and Great Adventure could be considered the frachise core.

Also, Six Flags is a franchise known for good to great coasters. I think Magic Mountain more than symbolizes that more than whats wrong with the franchise.

A trip to Elitch Gardens suddenly rocketed to the top of my things to do list. That property has always been FAR more valuable as just about anything but an amusement park. Lakeside, once they get word of this will be awfully happy to hear about this!

How long until Elitch is the new Astroworld? Anybody want to start a pool?

I still don't see any list of parks this company owns. Do they just serve as a staffing agency for theme parks? That's what it looks like from their website... unless I'm missing something.

^ They appear to be a park management company, sorta like how SF only manages SFMW and Paramount/CF only manages Bonfante Gardens, they don't own, only hired to manage. I assume once the debt is paid off to CNL they'll outright own these parks.
