    Six Flags files for bankruptcy

    In an effort to shed $1.8 billion in debt, popular theme-park chain Six Flags announced Saturday that it was filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

    Six Flags operates 20 theme parks in the United States, Mexico and Canada.

    The filing will not affect the operation of the company's 20 parks in the United States, Mexico and Canada, said spokeswoman Sandra Daniel

    I beg to differ. While Cedar Point is great, I think that Kings Island trumps it just slightly. But Cedar Point is a VERY close second. Red, are you from Ohio?

    no, but i have heard about Son of Beast....i would like to go back and ride that

    one thing I remember from King's Island was the Drop Zone...I hate freefall rides, but I was peer pressured into riding it...but literally a week after going on Drop Zone, I was watching headline news, and there is an identical park in California owned by Paramount (not King's Island, but Treasure Island maybe?) with an identical ride called Drop Zone...and the one in California had a malfunction where the chest straps didn't lock and a person flew out of their chair and died....I said never again would I ever go on a ride like that, and it's been almost 10 years since....I just won't do it...haha....plus the fact there was another freefall type ride at a six flags park within the last year or two where the brakes didn't work and it slammed to the ground and somebody's legs literally shattered off

    because of those stories, i ride coasters only
