NEW YORK, Oct 03, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Reinforcing the company's position as the premier family entertainment destination, Six Flags, Inc. announced today a sweeping capital expansion plan for the 2008 operating season, one of the largest capital investments in the company's 47-year history.
As part of the company-wide program, Six Flags parks will introduce new thrill and family rides -- featuring the industry's most innovative and exciting attractions -- as well as new special events to offer guests of all ages world class entertainment and more reasons to make Six Flags part of their vacation or day trip plans.
"In 2006 our capital efforts were focused on cleaning up the parks -- improving guest service and restoring the image of the Six Flags brand," said Mark Shapiro, Six Flags President and CEO. "Last season we made great strides in balancing the parks' rides and attractions by adding family offerings like Wiggles World and Thomas Town(TM). In 2008, we round out the revitalization of the company with the unprecedented introduction of seven coasters and new thrill attractions that will equally appeal to teens and families."
