I think the improvements look cool. I actually didn't have that great of an experience there the last time, but I really would like to go back there again this summer.

sounds like a good move for Six Flags, if anything, this should increase their revenue, which may help in their quest to lower their debt.

Does this mean their won't be the 150ft height limit anymore? I have to agree that SF made a smart move by buying the entire park now as it should help decrease their debt load in the long run

Not a chance... They would have to move the park to get rid of that...

I can't help but be a little concerned about some of these moves because it seems that much of the money made from the sale of the other parks is being used for more expenditures. I guess I am just wondering when they are planning to decrease their debt.

I may be wrong here, but I think now that Six Flags owns the park, they might be able to ask for permission to raise the height limit or get a waiver for a new ride from the city. During the V2 fiasco, I remember there being talk of Six Flags being able to get a higher limit for rides if they bought out Vallejo's interest in the park. Things may have changed since then with new people in the city government, but I think it would be a good idea for Six Flags to pursue a height limit closer to 200 feet in the area along Marine World Parkway since it is the furthest spot from the local residents.
