Six Flags looks like it wants to do bad

Six Flags Over Texas: 6 flags new ownership has turned in to even more of a joke than it did last year.

well the money grubbers that own and run 6 flags are at it again, they have now expanded their "prefered parking" to the whole front side of SFOT. They have raised the price of food but lowered the quality. They are "still" making 6 flags a "family" park by cutting the few smoking areas, but still sell beer and liquor shirts in the teen stores, and the 6 flags is STILL a baby sitting facility. Heres a hint. Why don't they play rollercoaster tycoon, if they want to run a theme park. They ain't cutting it in the real world.

You can buy beer in Disney Parks too. Especially MGM Studios and Disneyland.

If I am thinking Beer and Disney, I think of EPCOT!


I mean having beer in theme parks is all dependant on its availabity and its reason for being there. EPCOT uses it to sample other cultures for example. I have really never seen an overly drunk guest at EPCOT. If people can keep control there, they should be able to keep control anywhere.

Its funny that it seems that all the other Six Flags are getting worse. I think SFGA in Gurnee is getting even better! Its always jammed with people and we now have Hurricane Harbor. Maybe I am not expecting much out of it, but it seems to be getting better!

You have to give them a couple of years to get everything together. Both Six Flags and Pac(7) that bought the parks. They have to get all their finances in order. Wait till next year, if there's any change at all, it'll be then.

I beleive the only Disney park that does not sell any beer, is Magic Kingdom. Which as the whole world knows its where 99.9% of the families with young children and teens go to first. I respect them for that. But 6 flags is getting a bit out of hand.
