Say Bye Bye to SplashTown

http://www.click2houston.com/news/9415911/detail.html

Splashtown May Be Sold Or Closed

Astroworld Closed In 2005


POSTED: 8:55 am CDT June 23, 2006
UPDATED: 9:28 am CDT June 23, 2006

NEW YORK -- Splashtown is among six properties Six Flags could sell or close across North America.

Six Flags Astroworld was closed in 2005.

The Oklahoma City-based company said it may fail to meet certain bank credit agreements, and that reaching its previous financial forecast will be extremely difficult.

The company cited lower park attendance and rising costs, but says those who are coming to the parks are spending more.

President Mark Shapiro said the attendance drop was expected because the company is no longer deeply discounting season passes. It has been targeting families as consumers, rather than teenagers.

The company is examining several parks for possible changes including Six Flags Darien Lake outside Buffalo, N.Y., Six Flags Waterworld in Concord, Calif., Six Flags Elitch Gardens in Denver, Wild Waves and Enchanted Village outside Seattle, and Six Flags Magic Mountain and Hurricane Harbor near Los Angeles.

The company said it cannot predict for certain whether any transactions will occur. It could sell the properties outright or dismantle the parks and sell the land for its real estate value.

Six Flags also owns and operates Six Flags Over Texas and Six Flags Hurricane Harbor in Arlington and Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio.
