The move follows Six Flags' announcement that it posted a 7 percent increase in revenue, to $1.3 billion, last year. Attendance was up 11 percent last year as well, the company reported.
"The company has strong momentum and tremendous growth opportunities over the next decade, and I am proud to have helped our team deliver record guest satisfaction, industry-leading innovation, all-time high employee satisfaction, and our sixth consecutive year of record financial performance," Reid-Anderson said in a statement. "Strategically and operationally, we are firing on all cylinders and I am extremely excited to mentor the company's next-generation of leaders. John Duffey has been instrumental in our past success and is a proven leader within the company, and this is an excellent time to transition responsibilities and develop others on our management team as we continue building the Six Flags brand globally."
Last year, Six Flags won Theme Park Insider Awards for Best New Attraction and Best Roller Coaster for the new Justice League Battle for Metropolis ride at Six Flags Over Texas and El Toro at Six Flags Great Adventure, respectively. Earlier this year, Six Flags broke ground on its first theme park in China.Tweet
