Just Published: Theme Park Insider: 2016 Year in Review
I went to Six Flags Great America yesterday and they proudly posted and announced over loudspeakers near the front of the park that they were the "Cleanest Theme Park in America". Is this true or can they really make this claim? Also, is this being done at the other Six Flags Parks?
Don't get me wrong, Six Flags Great America is a very nice and clean park and I would argue one of the the best overall Six Flags parks, but when I think cleanliness in parks, I think Disney and, even, Universal.
What do you think?
Holiday World usually wins the Cleanest Park Award from Amusement Today, if you care about their awards, and I know Busch Gardens, Disney, Universal, SeaWorld, Silver Dollar City, and Dollywood are all generally spotless and much better off than any Six Flags park I have visited.
No, Anthony, it is just Six Flags writing a few more "checks" that they just can't possibly support.
But I do think the park has made great strides in becoming a cleaner park and that the employee's are far more friendly than in the past.
I think the park is moving in the right direction and deserves some credits for the improvements it has made.
I have enjoyed the park in my many visits this year, just not at all enthused about the water ride addition this year, I believe they would have done far better by adding a interactive dark ride and than a water ride that has had small lines and wasnt open early in the year and wont be open for FF.
As far as cleanliness, it's not exclusive to Disney and Universal. It's been a while since I've been to a park that wasn't pretty clean.
Yeah, they probably should have gotten a dark ride instead of Buccaneer Battle. The ironic part about that ride is that its too efficent to get people on and off thus no lines vs Dark Knight which is very slow to get people through.
But going along with that, it seems to me that SFGA has been playing a little loose with the truth when talking about things sometimes. I was lucky enough to cover the Media Day for Buccaneer Battle in which they claimed that there would be animatronics and highly interactive. It sorta is, but sorta isn't especailly with the animatronics.
I like SFGA alot, but I wonder if they could get in trouble by making that claim. I mean they were sued for not opening Deja Vu early enough and keep it open enough. Another irony since Buccaneer Battle is in its place
