Talk about RCT 2, RCT, No Limits, Hyper Rails, Scream Machines or any other Rollercoaster related game here.

Well, story goes like this, got board one day. Found RCT2 and thought Ohio needed a Six Flags of its own.

First over view after about 3 days of work.

Image
Custom Woodie I like to call "Medusa" Formally called woodland twister but the Medusa sign in the game looked alot better so I changed it.

Image
First Kids area called "Tiny Town" (most likely will change it if someone has any other ideas.. Also entrance to the water park that will be built.

Questions, comments or anything is appreciated, thanks.

God bless NIU

Six flags had a park in Ohio called Geauga Lakes and ran it into the ground.

Actually Six Flags did the opposite of running Geauga Lake into the ground, they bought Geauga Lake, slapped in 4 major coasters in one season and renamed it Six Flags Ohio and built up the park so big that it couldn't support itself, then they bought Seaworld Ohio that was right across the lake, named the whole complex Six Flags Worlds of Adventure and it became even bigger and less self sustaining, until they sold this disaster of a park to Cedar Fair who renamed it back to Geauga Lake turned the old Seaworld side into a waterpark and eventually closed the dry side and distributed easily moved rides around the Cedar Fair chain.

I meant run it into the ground financially. I wish I would have known about this place before it closed. Never made it there.
I was researching it's history last week and found that Busch Gardens offered to buy it in 2000 and Six Flags countered and bought Sea World instead for $110 million. So what do you think Busch would have done with it? Would they have operated the 2 parks independently? Would they have rethemed GL into a Busch Gardens? Would the parks still be operational today? What type of rides would have been added and removed?

I'd wager to guess it likely would have gone in the direction of BGW ride wise, and would probably be around and successful today, though a coaster or 3 would probably end up having been removed. Actually if SF had picked 3-4 coasters to tear out and send elsewhere, and not bought Seaworld, the park would probably still be there today and probably profitable.

I am SO glad none of you are defending Cedar Fair in this instance.

I think the Park needed a BIG expansion to compete better with Cedar Point but I think Six Flags picked the wrong year to expand it. They should've done it in 1999, That way their only competition was CP's Camp Snoopy. In 2000, They had to go up against Millennium Force.

I agree 1000x percent that they shouldn't have purchased SeaWorld, If I were Six Flags, I would've had the park go until SeaWorld closed the park. SFO was 232 acres, That should've been MORE than enough land to build upon.
926 Coasters around the World! Countdown to 1000!

Six Flags should have never tried to compete with Cedar Point in the first place. Geauga Lake had been around for around 100 years and was doing quite well before Six Flags decided to put it up against Cedar Point. Now the park is gone. If SF never flagged the park and added the 4 huge coasters the park would probably still be doing quite well today.

^^ Six Flags didn't have trouble with attendance in 2000. They could't sustain it in the following years, which killed them. Something around 2.1 mil in 2000, 1.4 mil in 01' and around 700-800,000 from 02'-04'.
