Aug 14 - Six Flags CEO: ‘We became a cheap day care center for teenagers’
 

 
Six Flags revealed it has shed nearly 2 million customers during the past year – a drop that came partly because of an initiative to weed out “rowdy teenagers,” according to the company’s CEO.

The Arlington, Texas-based theme park’s shares tumbled 18% to $21.12 on Thursday after it disclosed that attendance at its 27 parks was down 22% from a year ago to 6.7 million in the quarter ended July 3.

The drop came partly because Six Flags has been steadily hiking ticket prices after offering too many discounts this year, Chief executive Selim Bassoul told analysts on a Thursday earnings call.

“So, we only got the discounter or we became a day care center for teenagers,” Bassoul said. “It was a cheap day care center for teenagers during breaks and the summers.”

In response, Six Flags has been hiking prices to reduce the numbers of “rowdy teenagers running around,” he added.

“We want to be a park for the middle class and even the lower middle class,” he said. “We believe our demographic is the average income of the US and I’m migrating a little bit from what I call the Kmart, Walmart [customer] to maybe the target customers, if I want to say that.”

Probably more so a behavior issue and not a race issue.

Not everything the same mane. Them golden days are long gone. I went to zoo recently here in chicago. It's been gosh almost 5-10s apart since I last went. With how this pandemic fu*ked everyone up, there were no monkeys, no gorillas, no elelphants, no jaguars. It was almost fu*king dead place. Sad sh*t.

Theme parks in the Bay have been a no go since I was entering high school back in '05. Last time I went to Six Flags in Vallejo, there was a "hyphy train" of about 50 or more people barreling through crowds yelling "Aaaaye, aaaaye, aaaaye!"
Parents with young children looking terrified. I was definitely an idiot as a youngster but I knew better than to act a fool like that in front of young kids.
That was almost 20 years ago, I can only imagine how much worse it's gotten.

This MF reaching. You can say that about literally anything. The mall, main events, water parks, etc. he’s just the one making excuses and saying it out loud. He ain’t t wrong tho but miss me with the woe is me sh*t cause multiple businesses/industries have the same issue.

I miss Astroworld but let the older people tell it, the sh*t was becoming a zoo and it’s been more development in that space since the

I can't remember the last time I was inside six flags. And I live a good 15 minutes away from the one in the DMV. Drive by it frequently.

Been at least 15 years. And it's for a reason.

I mean, the truth is kids and teens are SF core group. You can say it was a place to drop teens, but adults aren’t finna just start patronizing the sh*t. As an adult Six Flags rides are fun, but not as fun as they were for the adolescent mind that used to find those rides the ultimate thrill. SF finna alienate the group that makes them the most paper.

I don't think that I've ever gone and I don't have any plans to. Cedar Pointe is closer to me and I haven't been there either. I don't think anything is wrong with those places, I just don't think that the way that I live supports it. First off, I rather spend disposable money on cars & car parts than anything else. Secondly, I don't like lines, I don't like waiting, and I don't like masses of people in tight spaces....aka...a theme park. Unless someone that I claim to care about is dragging me there, I'm not going.
