Cypress Adventures still up for sale with no buyers

5 months after the original owners put Cypress Adventures up for sale, the park is still up for sale with no word on who would buy it, if anyone would buy it at all. As of now, Cypress Adventures remains abandoned awaiting its fate, whether someone would buy it, or if it would close down permanently.

One of our crew gained access to the park by officials just to see the current state of the park. Here are the pictures he took below.

August 1985

Cypress Adventures purchased by Six Flags!

Six Flags, owner of several parks, purchased Cypress Adventures and they plan to reopen the park for the 1986 season. Six Flags announced they would add the "Six Flags" name to Cypress Adventures. In addition to it, they would add 2 new rides. A carousel in the castle section and a new stand up coaster, The Last Stand, to the park for 1986. Fans of the park are speculating what will happen for the 1986 season in addition to what was announced.

May 1986

I missed the grand reopening of the now Six Flags Cypress Adventures, but man is it great to be back! I rode the new Intamin standup, The Last Stand, and even though it had a little headbanging problem, it was a lot of fun! I can't wait to see what Six Flags has in store for this park in the future!

(by the way, you can now visit Six Flags Cypress Adventure! You can make your own trip report here if you want! https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1632705117 )

July 1986

Just stopping by Six Flags for some fun. Here's my report:
20190131195143_1.jpg
Cypress Plunge just reopened from a breakdown so I took advantage of the empty line because I was sweating a storm in this heat.
20190131195222_1.jpg
Twister still as popular as ever
20190131195345_1.jpg
More buildings has been recolored. I wonder if this has to do with the 1987 addition
20190131195355_1.jpg
Castle of Horror has its signage removed and its trains are visible outside. I think this ride is leaving.

August 1986

Six Flags announced that they are going to announce the 1987 addition next week. I decided to go to the park to check out what was going on with fantasy village before the announcement.
20190209110535_1.jpg
More buildings have been repainted. I really wonder what this is going to be...
20190209110549_1.jpg
They cleared some of the trees in front of the train
20190209110646_1.jpg
Dragon Run also had trees cleared. I never really realized how open the area in the middle of Dragon Run was till now.
20190209110744_1.jpg
Castle of Horror is getting demolished! Guess they won't reuse that building again.
20190209110809_1.jpg
Last shot of Fantasy Village. Any guesses for 1987?
20190209110823_1.jpg
Ending the report here. They renamed Big Wheel to "Grand Wheel" and repainted it white!

March 1987

So Looney Tunes Town opened on time for the opening weekend of Six Flags Cypress Adventures. Castle of Horror, which was standing but not operating since the park opened under Six Flags, was demolished to make way for 2 of the new attractions in Looney Tunes Town

20190301202104_1.jpg


When the park opened its doors for the 1987 season, many people rushed to check out how much of Fantasy Village changed

20190301202140_1.jpg


The most popular ride in the new Looney Tunes Town was Roadrunner Express, which used to be called Dragon Run

20190301202231_1.jpg


Theme elements were added to the coaster to immerse you into a Looney Tunes cartoon

20190301202324_1.jpg


Bugs Bunny Fort Fun is located in the area that used to be occupied by Castle of Horror

20190301202418_1.jpg


Daffy Duck Bucket Blaster is also located in the spot formerly occupied by Castle of Horror. This ride was relocated from Caribbean Port.

20190301202450_1.jpg


Fantasy Fling was repainted brown and renamed Taz Twisters

20190224183440_1.jpg


And lastly, Excalibur got updated PTC trains.


Looney Tunes Town was a success and people complimented how colorful and bright the buildings looked compared to the previous Fantasy Village. Looney Tunes costumed characters were walking around the park to take pictures with families and to promote the new area. Of course this was just another step for the big plans Six Flags had for Cypress Adventures in the future...

I feel like the next big thing for Cypress Adventures will be either an Arrow mega-looper or suspended coaster.
1. The Voyage 2. Intimidator 305 3. Maverick 4. Skyrush 5. Mindbender (Galaxyland) 6. Fury 325 7. Kumba 8. Goliath (Georgia) 9. The Beast 10. Phoenix
I’ve ridden 139 Coasters, and have been a coaster enthusiast since 2013.

May 1987

~The Allison Family

Our two kids (ages 5 and 7) just got out of school, so my wife and I decided that we should celebrate the start of summer by going to Six Flags since they opened a new area for our kids to enjoy this year! Here's how our day went:
20190304162430_1.jpg
Clear skies. Perfect theme park weather!
20190304162500_1.jpg
My one complaint with this park is that this path from the entrance to the new Looney Tunes area is quite empty and uneventful. I hope they add something to it someday.
20190304162559_1.jpg
Look at how colorful this area is!
20190304162607_1.jpg
I think I remember a haunted castle ride that used to be here. I'm not sure though.
20190304162637_1.jpg
My kids loved playing on the playground and riding the Daffy Duck ride!
20190304162802_1.jpg
My 7 year old son is tall enough to ride Excalibur (my favorite ride!), and he was excited to ride, but once we approached the coaster, he chickened out and begged us to ride RoadRunner instead. Maybe next time...
20190304162848_1.jpg
Taking the train to the other end of the park!
20190304163020_1.jpg
My 7 year old son was willing to go on the mine train since he said "It doesn't look like it has any big drops". Boy is he in for a surprise at the end...
20190304163221_1.jpg
My son loved the final big drop of the mine train and told me he wanted to ride Excalibur! We started to head that way, but we decided to ride the log flume since we were kind of hot. We also got burgers at the food court area near the ride.
20190304163621_1.jpg
My 5 year old daughter got sick and threw up, so we had to cut our day at Six Flags short and missed out on Excalibur. We had a lot of fun today! We will be back again someday Six Flags!
