News & Rumors


Buffalo, New York (Abbreviation: DL)
Known as Six Flags Darien Lake (1999 to 2006)
Owned by EPR Properties
Managed by Premier Parks, LLC


icon_STOPPark News - (1/11/17) Care for a concert along with a day at Darien Lake?  Several summer concert dates for the theme park were announced this week that offer the ability to add-on a ticket to the park for the day for just $10.99 extra if purchased in advance through LiveNation or Ticketmaster.
    July 18 will feature Chicago and The Doobie Brothers
    July 21 will feature Foreigner, Cheap Trick and Jason Bonham's Led Zeppeling Experience.
    Aug. 26 will feature Green Day with Catfish and Bottlemen.
    (7/2/16) When I asked Darien Lake PR for clarification on the on the future of the Ride of Steel coaster, Screamscape was informed that while the park did buy "a new, upgraded train" from the ride's manufacturer this year "to give the riders a smoother experience", this will apparently be the only train the ride will have.
    While the ride was originally purchased, back in the Six Flags days, with two trains for more efficient operations, Darien Lake sadly has "no plans to add a second [train] at this time." I'm sure this news is disappointing, as one train operation on any coaster able to run two is never good news for capacity on a busy day, but this also means that any time there needs to be maintenance performed on the train, the park's premier coaster will be closed for the day since there is no spare train to pick up the slack.
