Six Flags is a theme park company. Headquartered in Arlington, TX, US.

History

During Chapter 11, a trade deal was made with Carwardine Parks to help finish Six Flags' acquisition of the Paramount Parks (Canada's Wonderland, Carowinds, Great America, Kings Dominion, Kings Island, Gilroy Gardens, and Terra Mítica) by trading Great Escape and Darien Lake to Carwardine, Cedar Fair was originally going to buy the Paramount Parks, but went into Chapter 11 Bankruptcy as well.

They currently have 28 main parks, 3 parks under the Three Flags subcomapny headquartered in El Paso, TX, US, 8 parks under the Four Flags subcompany headquartered in San Antonio, TX, US, and 6 parks under the Five Flags subcompany headquartered in Las Colinas, TX, US. Six Flags also operates 12 parks and 4 waterparks they've leased from other companies or groups, operating 6 under the Six Flags name, 4 under the Six Flags Hurricane Harbor name, and the rest with "A Six Flags Theme Park" bylines.

In 2011, it was listed as the highest employment in a theme park chain.

The chain of parks each celebrated the 50th anniversary in 2011 with a gold painted train on one attraction per park, as well as other celebrations. While most of these trains have since been repainted, quite a few remain today.

Trivia

  • Six Flags only has 4 Hurricane Harbors without an adjacent theme park
  • Six Flags Westerly Pier, Six Flags Fiesta Georgia, Six Flags Sydney and Terra Mítica are the only parks to serve Pepsi products instead of Coke products due to their original licenses, although Fiesta Texas did serve Pepsi for a while until they were switched with Coke in 2000 due to Pepsi getting a better deal with Schlitterbahn for the Texan parks.
  • Six Flags has the most operated parks, the most owned parks however belongs to Carwardine Parks.
