Santa Claus Land became Holiday World and Marineland of the Pacific became Marineland.


Are there any other well-known theme parks outside the Six Flags chain that received a name change?

Michigans Adventure has had a few name changes:


Deer Park - Deer Park Funland - Michigan's Adventure


Cali's Great America has also had numerous name changes:


Marriott's Great America - Great America - Paramount's Great America - Great America - California's Great America

Lakemont - Boyertown USA - Lakemont


Apparently some dude bought the park and changed the name for a while, and then I believe the state or county bought it back and renamed it back to it's original name.

A few I know that haven't been mentioned yet (some are minor parks, but others aren't):


Busch Gardens-The Dark Continent -> Busch Gardens Tampa -> Busch Gardens Africa -> Busch Gardens Tampa

Busch Gardens: The Old Country -> Busch Gardens Williamsburg -> Busch Gardens Europe -> Busch Gardens Williamsburg

Cypress Gardens -> Cypress Gardens Adventure Park -> Legoland Florida

Grand Slam Canyon -> Adventuredome

Hecker Pass Family Adventure -> Bonfante Gardens -> Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park


In addition, all the former Paramount Parks added Paramount to their name at one point and have since dropped it. And then there is the least obvious name change I can think of:


Disney's California Adventure -> Disney California Adventure

Counting Six Flags parks...


Marine World Africa USA (original?)

The New Marine World Theme Park

Marine World

Six Flags Marine World

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom (current)


I believe coasters didn't appear until after the first name change. I first visited the park as Marine World Africa USA. It has also been called Marine World and Marine World/Africa U.S.A. in a different location with no rides.

Valleyfair! became Valleyfair. Camp Snoopy at MOA became Nickelodeon Universe. Actually it was Knotts Camp Snoopy, then Camp Snoopy, then Park at MOA, then Nickelodeon Universe.
