Well thats sad, it seemed like a pretty decent park, if they close it i hope they relocate most of the coasters and don't scrape any of them, especially the rare Arrow Launch-Loop "Sidewinder".

Hopefully the better ones of the 6 "maybe-to-be-put-on-sale" Six Flags parks stay in operations.

While I kind of saw it coming, it is sad to see this park go. It was my favorite SF park, and IMO, it fit the new SF well. Hopefully Half Pipe is sent to GAM, but that will only be found out with time.

I hope that the other Six Flags parks that just recently fired their characters don't have the same outcome. Like SFMW, I went to the park this weekend and didn't see a single character. Although every single ride was running which I have never seen before.

Why would one criticize and company for selling assets. Take control of that comany, then sell more assets.

Does SFEG have a good collection of flat rides?


Not really, the only standouts at SFEG are Batwing (Chance Aviator) and Tower of Doom (Intamin Freefall).

Well, hope SFEG doesn't get torn down. I found it to be one of the more well-kept parks in the SF chain. However, the day I went, Boomerang was doen. However, inside the station was a crew pressure washing it, so good to see SF maintaining their stuff.

Glad I got most of the credits though!
-My butt has touched 112 roller coasters, how unfortunate.

Can I park my donkey here?

It looks like SFEG will be another SF park that I will never get a chance to visit.

Have you guys even read the thing? Basically the site is not really feasible for any other use and the asking price is obviously not for just the land... The price is to sell the park as a whole.

I can't imagine that a company could really make it worthwhile to buy the land what with the cost of the park and the costs associated with changing the zoning and everything else...

Besides Six Flags is looking to sell properties but the amount of bad press that the old Six Flags got for closing down one property would be a death sentence for the new owners. Heck do the rest of you remember the stock price fall that happened when they announced that they were closing Astroworld? I think they will do whatever they can to try to preserve the parks since they are in many cases very important to the cities in which they reside.
