It might be because New York is close to SFGADV and SFNE. Six Flags Darien Lake is in New York, but if you live anywhere near the city it takes well over five hours to get there. SFNJ is closer. Premier also owns The Great Escape in Lake George, which is where the Comet is located. I don't know why they don't covert that into a Six Flags. The distance issue might be a factor. I've heard that they have room to expand, and it is a fairly good park. What I'm complaining about is the lack of parks on Long Island, New York! So many people live here, it would be great to have one. Plus it would be close to the city. And...basically I'm just selfish and don't feel like driving for 2 hours to get to Six Flags, lol.
