Six Flags sucks, I will never go back to the one in KY. If anyone has no clue why, then google Six Flags KY feet, or accident. If I'm going to a local park to have some fun I just go to Holiday World. Its cheap friendly and fun. Admission is like $20 something dollars with a pepsi can, free parking and free unlimited drinks.

Ugh...Six Flags sucks! The quality of their parks has declined dramatically over the last several years, although they still have the best coasters. I've visited the Georgia park and the SoCal park several times in the last 5 years. I used to have season passes, but never will again. The paint is fading from their rides, there are cobwebs in the line areas, and you're lucky if you see even one employee picking up trash. The roving packs of teens far outweigh the families, and I didn't particularly enjoy being with my kids and eating at a table that had profanity carved into it. We moved twice and found the same thing. On one memorable occasion, we approached Yosemite Sam to get a picture with the kids, and he kept walking and said "I'm on a break. Look for me later." WTF? As far as I'm concerned, they'll never get another penny of my money.

You live and learn. At any rate, you live.

As a suburban white guy, I honestly would feel uncomfortable going to the closest one in MD. It is more for the inner city thug that wants to show his boo what a hot shot he is by winning her the biggest cheap sweatshop made stuffed animal he can.

For me Six Flags started going downhill when the Warner cartoon characters showed up. Then went even further downhill naming everything after the DC Comics super heros.

I still love the older part of Six Flags. My favorite ride will always be the Mine Train. I like how it is close to the ground. rushing past and through the trees really adds to the sense of movement. Plus the ride is fairly long compared to other roller coasters.

They need to get back to their roots. Dump Bugs and Daffy and return the Spelunkers to The Cave.

1st one- 1989 Cherokee Laredo. 12 great years
2nd one- 2001 Cherokee Limited. Got it before they were gone.

"Sandstorms inflict damage of about $540 million per year, and losses of crops and forests due to acid rain amount to about $730 million per year. More serious are the $6 billion costs of the "green wall" of trees being built to shield Beijing against sand and dust, and the $7 billion per year of losses created by pest species. We enter the zone of impressive numbers when we consider the onetime cost of the 1996 floods ($27 billion, but still cheaper than the 1998 floods), the annual direct losses due to desertification ($42 billion), and the annual losses due to water and air pollution ($54 billion). The combination of the latter two items alone costs China the equivalent of 14% of its GDP each year." - Jared Diamond, Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed

ABSOLUTELY! Do they still have the "Mine Train? That was the second coaster I ever rode (the mini-mine train was the first). I haven't been to Six Flags since about 1990.
