GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas: Six Flags announced today that three of its newest parks will be renamed as Six Flags parks.
Six Flags, the largest operator of waterparks in North America, acquired Darien Lake, Wet & Wild Splashtown and Wet & Wild Phoenix last year from EPR Properties.
Major renovations are currently underway at these three parks to provide guests with an exciting 2019 season.
“The Six Flags brand is recognized throughout the world as an industry leader in creating innovative, groundbreaking experiences for guests of all ages,” said Senior Vice President of US Park Operations Tom Iven. “We are proud to have these incredible parks bear the Six Flags name and we are making major investments in all three properties with record-breaking attractions and extensive upgrades including new theming, paint treatments and branded signage, along with updates to the restaurant and retail locations. Additionally, Members and Season Pass Holders will have free, unlimited visits to these parks and Six Flags theme parks throughout North America.”
