Waterworld Becomes Six Flags’ 20th Property
Just one day after Six Flags held their quarterly conference call with investors where they had said that the company was looking to acquire or lease more parks in North America, Six Flags announced that they were welcoming Waterworld in Concord California back into their family of world class amusement and water parks.
Six Flags has reached an agreement with EPR properties, The owner of Waterworld California, to operate the Waterpark which is only 20 minutes south of Six Flags Discovery Kingdom.
“This is an exciting new venture and a great opportunity to provide families with more entertainment options in this important market,” said Six Flags President and CEO John Duffey. “Guests in Northern California will now have the opportunity to enjoy two beautiful Six Flags parks. This is truly a win-win, as we welcome our 20th property—Waterworld California—back into our family of parks.”
Waterworld was a member of the Six Flags group since the years of Premier Parks. The water park opened in 1995 under the name Waterworld USA Concord and remained that way until 2004 when it then opened as Six Flags Waterworld. In 2007 Six Flags sold the park to a company called PARC Management. Now, Six Flags has decided to buy it back.
The 30-acre Waterworld California features more than 35 water attractions, including the region’s largest wave pool, an interactive children’s play area and its newest offering—Break Point Plunge. This heart-pounding, 270-foot long looping thrill ride launches riders in a capsule from a height of more than six stories. Other extreme slides include Honolulu Halfpipe—a mammoth curved tube slide and Cliffhanger, one of the park’s signature speed slides.
At this time there is no word if Six Flags passes can be used this year or not, but Waterworld California opens for the 2017 season on May 13.
