Guess that kinda makes you a martyr, Robert.
As for the PR incident with Magic Mountain (another park I have visited before), I feel the management of Six Flags is trashing a great resource...candid and honest comments from all of us! We have been to the parks and have ridden the rides! And we offer our honest opinions! Getting this kind of reader response could be obtained with in-park surveys, but that costs $$$, however, opinions from this site are FREE! Six Flags management still has a (magic) mountain to climb to win back guests and families, but I think they are trying. To their credit, my home park, Six Flags over Georgia is now cleaner, friendlier, and run more efficiently than just one year ago. It may take a while for their efforts to spread to the far reaches of the rest of the chain, but I have noticed a huge difference in Georgia.
