Last week, a rumour circulated in the theme park industry. It suggested that discussions were taking place within the Six Flags corporate office regarding the possibility of selling off Six Flags over Texas along with up to two other parks in the chain to another established theme park company.A little more light digging revealed that that the established company involved in the talks was possibly Herschend Family Entertainment, the company behind the Silver Dollar City and Dollywood theme parks, along with a portfolio of other known attractions.
As the man behind the Screamscape.com news site for the past twenty years, I was immediately intrigued. I just had to know more. After all, Screamscape has long been famous for our rumour reports; often digging up very juicy information long before the official announcements are made. This wasn’t my rumour however, and was not first leaked by Screamscape. Nevertheless, it had a large group of my contacts also buzzing.
