Six Flags announces new rides for 2013 season
Written by Robert Niles
Six Flags Chairman, President and CEO Jim Reid-Anderson, and Six Flags Chief Operating Officer Al Weber, Jr. announced the chain's new rides for the 2013 season.Tweet
Here's the new line-up for Six Flags' top parks:
Reid-Anderson said the company is spending 9 percent of its annual revenue on capital each year, with 60-65% of that going for new rides and attractions. Doing the math, that's about $60 million annually across the chain for everything.
Reid-Anderson also said that while Six Flags hasn't announced any water-based attractions in its US theme parks this year, that doesn't mean the chain is keeping wet rides only on the Hurricane Harbor side in the future. And even dark rides might be on the traditionally-coaster-focused chain's agenda in the next few years.
"We are intently focused on all options, including dark ride options," he said. "It is on our radar."
