I dont think they will open any new parks anytime soon. They are in $2 billion of debt and are looking to sell some of the smaller parks such as Elitch Gardens, Astroland, Fiesta Texas, and St. Louis.

They may be looking to sell some properties but I doubt that St Louis or Fiesta Texas are among them.

St Louis is one of the real Six Flags parks, it would be crazy to sale it.

The next park to join the chain will probably be Great Escape. But the year that it joins, SF would probably want to add a major coaster. So I'm predicting that in 2006 or 2007 they will get a B&M looper and become a Six Flags park.

I don't see SF adding any new parks. I think they are going to sell their smaller parks very soon. Their northwest property may become an "official" Six Flags park, but unlike many others, I don't see Great Escape becoming a SF park.

Where exactly is a Six Flags theme park? A theme park must have a THEME after all.

I think El Paso because to get to a six flags in texas they have to drive for the whole day through the desert to get to Six Flags Fiesta Texas and i think el paso deserves one even thought texas has 3 already they need one badly... there are tons of states around it this is why i pick el paso

If you are talking which of SFProperties will be first to become a six Flags park the one in washington. Other places, has to be Florida florida is where all the tourists go. And will make big money. But with all that debt I don't expect anything to happen until 2005

Actually coasterman, take it on fairly good word that the following will be Six Flags' future plans: Cut funding to some of the smaller parks, continuing to operate them, but not spending anything to improve them.
<BR>Focus on the big major parks, SFMM, SFWOA, etc. and drop some big things in there every few years. There might be one or two closings or sales, with rides moving around, esp. old coasters to go to SFMM (Maybe even drachen fire??) so SFMM can keep its title as most coasters.

Probably in the Pacific Northwest. Say washington or Idaho. They need thrills bad so people won't have to travel to far for great rides.

The Enchanted Village is going to become Six Flags Over Washington in 2003. Don't ask how I know, I can't tell.
