Six Flags Schuyler Lake (formerly known as Schuyler Lake) is a theme park located in Geneva, New York with a Rochester mailing address. It is touted as being the world's largest amusement park.

History

Pre-Six Flags (1913-1990)

The park opened in May the 14th of 1913 as "Schuyler Lake" by the Schuyler family. The only attraction from opening day remaining is the antique carousel.

In 1920, the Bird Garden opened along with the park's first coaster. In 1923, Ye Old Mill opened. In 1924, Thunderbolt opened, which started a direction in the park to build the most intense coasters they could. In 1928, Jack Rabbit and The Whip opened to the public.

Entering the 1930s, in 1930, Pippin the Zippin opened. In 1936, Whip Jr. opened. In 1939, Noah's Ark opened.

In the 1940s, due to World War II, saw less growth than other decades, with the first attraction of the decade being 1943's Little Chariots. In 1946, Torpedo opened to the public and finally, in 1949, Steeplechase opened.

In 1950, Turtle Pond opened. In 1955, Little Lake Railroad opened. In 1957, the Carousel was repainted. In 1959, two new rides, Scrambler and Wild Mouse, opened to the public, marking the first time since 1928 that two additions were built in a single year. This would arguably start their Golden Age.

Starting off the 1960s was the addition of Rotor, which was installed in 1960, In 1961, marking the first time three years in a row with consecutive attractions, the Dolphin Discovery opened.

Schuyler Amusements, Inc.

Schuyler Amusements, Inc. (SAI) was founded in 1962. In 1978, SAI had plans to build a sister amusement park to Schuyler Lake in Corfu, New York called "Darien Lake" which opened in 1981.

With the new brand, came a new foundation for the park, changing this rather small-town feeling park into a Disneyland-style park, with themed lands, along with a proper railroad, the first time two coasters were installed within a single year - Golden Comet and Comet Jr. and 8 new flat rides, with two of them, Metro Express and Schuyler Skyway, being direct inspirations from Disney. In 1963, Lakeside Turnpike opened. In 1966, after a couple years of no new rides, Trabant was added. In 1969, after another traditional three-year-drought, three new rides were added - Calypso, The Loop and Professor Burpo's Soda Pop Factory, this would also unintentionally be the last season Jack Rabbit would operate.

In 1970, Haunted Manor and Jack Rabbit II opened to the public. In 1971, Shogun Palace opened. In 1972, The Loop closed due to safety concerns. In 1973, Bumper Cars and the Super Wheel opened. In 1974, Bayern Kurve opened while Ye Old Mill closed. In 1975, Firecracker, Wildcat and Space Chute opened, while Comet Jr. closed. In 1976, Beastie and Kiddie Bumper Cars opened, along with the Bicentennial celebration. In 1977, the "Ride Roundup" happened, adding six new rides in a single year. In 1978, Blackbeard's Ship opened. In 1979, to cap off the decade, Whirlwind opened.

In 1980, Typhoon Spinnaker opened, In 1981, Bear's Den opened, marking the end of the Golden Age that's been here since 1959 and the start of the Silver Age, mainly due to attention being focused on Darien Lake, In 1982, Lumberjack, Deer Forest, Fireball, Rainbow Worm, Robin Hood and Little Lumberjack opened, marking "Attraction Roundup", In 1983, Himalaya, Flying Dragons, Kiddie Pirate and Creature Cavern opened. In 1984, Sesame Town opened, along with Lake Monster and many new flat rides. In 1985, Sonic Boomerang opened as the first Boomerang layout coaster in the US, however, due to Vekoma's US offices working on too much projects at the time, Arrow built it instead. In 1986, Arctic Run opened to the public, expanding the Mountain area and theme even more, It also saw the debut of Viper, a TOGO standup. In 1987, Matrix opened as "New York's Most Advanced Roller Coaster". In 1988, Steel Beast opened as the World's First Hyper-Coaster, although unlike modern hyper coasters, would focus on inversions rather than airtime, the ride would be placed in the front of the park, requiring the removal of two other coasters.

Six Flags Era (1991-2010)

In 1991, SAI was acquired by Six Flags. In 1995, Six Flags phased out the Schuyler Amusements subsidiary and Schuyler Lake became known as "Six Flags Schuyler Lake" in 1999.

Cedar Fair Era (2011-2014)

In November 2010, Six Flags sold the park to Cedar Fair and numerous changes occurred at the park, mostly ride renaming and also dumping the "Six Flags" branding from the park's name.

Kennywood Entertainment era (2015-2016)

In 2015, Kennywood Entertainment bought the park from Cedar Fair.

Second Six Flags Era (2017-present)

In 2017, Kennywood Entertainment sold the park to Six Flags.

Incidents

Der Katerpault

  • On July 28, 1986, the ride malfunctioned and started up early, while everyone was still getting into their seats. A 20-year-old man died when he was flung from the vehicle and broke his neck. His friend suffered a serious concussion but survived. The employees managed to shut down the ride before it caused anymore damage and it remained SBNO while it was checked for any technical problems. Eventually the ride reopened a week later.]]
