Six Flags is one of the largest amusement park companies in the world. Currently, Six Flags has locations in Canada, the USA, Europe and Mexico, and now they’ve added China to their list of international parks. According to a recent press release:
“Six Flags Kids World—the first park of its kind and designed especially for families with young children—will be built adjacent to both Six Flags Zhejiang and Six Flags Chongqing. Additionally, the all-new Six Flags Adventure Park, offering high-energy outdoor thrills, will adjoin the Six Flags Chongqing complex.
Six Flags Kids World will feature junior-sized versions of the company’s world famous, recording-breaking roller coasters, rides, and attractions. Families with young children will enjoy meeting and interacting with some of their favorite characters. Brightly themed restaurants will offer kid-friendly menu options and retail shops will feature a wide selection of apparel, toys, and souvenirs. Six Flags Kids World will be the perfect complement to the Six Flags theme park and Hurricane Harbor water park in Zhejiang, and the Six Flags portfolio of parks in Chongqing.
For the more daring enthusiasts, Six Flags Adventure Park will be the ultimate in high-adrenaline, action-packed thrills. From motocross bicycle races along rugged terrain, to whitewater rafting to zip lining or rock climbing hundreds of feet above the ground, guests will have the opportunity to reach beyond their comfort zone and safely push the boundaries of self-discovery in a beautiful, natural environment.
Six Flags innovation will be on full display in the design of the various challenges and attractions throughout the park. Six Flags Adventure Park will be a thrilling new addition to the Six Flags Chongqing entertainment lineup.”
This is a huge step for Six Flags, and the opening of a kids park is very ambitious and should do well. I’m sure other theme park companies (Disney) may even consider their own for the future.
The parks are scheduled to open by 2020.
