If the deal does go through, why would that mean that Busch Gardens or Sea World's quality would go down? If Six Flags plays their cards right, couldn't this result in a boost in the quality of Six Flags parks? It all depends on the terms of the deal and who from Sea World's management is brought into Six Flags. Sure Six Flags buying Sea World could cause quality to suffer, but it could also prove to motivate Six Flags to improve service quality at all their parks. Just playing devils advocate.

That being said, I would be shocked if this deal went through in the end in the first place.

Way Close to Knoebels!

^ Why would they remove popular rides that (as far as I've heard) run perfectly fine?

I'm kinda having a hard time deciding what I think about this because Six Flags parks are all over the place. You have parks like MM or La Ronde on the bad end of the spectrum but then you have parks like GRAm, SFOG, or DK on the good end. I do like that SF has experience with animals and they could help on the ride side (Iron Gwazi anyone?) but I'm also worried that you would see Kumba trains wrapped in Stride Gum ads and Superman flying over Shamu. What I still don't get is why Six Flags would even want to do this in the first place.

^^If Six Flags buys the parks, the last thing you'll have to worry about is them removing the coasters entirely...

Now, disassembling them to be reinstalled in different parks in the chain and marketed as if they were new? More their style.

Although I shudder at the very thought of "Six Flags Williamsburg," I doubt they would do something like that. In fact, I doubt that anything will come of this, but who knows?

This is exactly what I was thinking. Ride rotations and their sellout ads everywhere

Is this legit? Oh goodness.. there does not need to be two Six Flags parks in San Antonio.

Benefits: One season pass (maybe), maybe a broader ride selection.
Cons: Ummmmm... they speak for themselves. Plus, Six Flags just emerged from Chapter 11.

I love Sea World and Fiesta Texas, but this... this can't be happening.
