IAAPA news: Hard Rock rides and Six Flags update
Written by Michael Willis
I am here at the IAAPA conference in Atlanta. So far the biggest news is that the Hard Rock Park in Myrtle Beach has announced the ride manufacturers for their park. They are B&M [Editor's note: TPI called that!], Premier, Chance Morgan, Vekoma, Huss Park Attractions, and Sally Corp. There is an article on it at:Tweet
Also, Mark Shapiro, CEO of Six Flags spoke this morning. There wasn't any news about potential buyers for any of the Six Flags parks that are up for sale. Mr. Shapiro said that as of now they are operating under the assumption that all parks will remain open until acceptable buyers are found. Mr. Shapiro stressed that Six Flags needs to continue to find new ways of generating income and continue to make Six Flags a family friendly attraction to be successful. That’s all the big news so far.
