News & Rumors



THE GREAT ESCAPE & Splashwater Kingdom
Lake George, New York
Six Flags Theme Parks



Park News - (4/10/14) The local news reports that The Great Escape will feature new entertainment options and fewer fireworks shows this season to draw guests back to the park for the 2014 season. In 2013 the park featured fireworks every Friday and Saturday night in July and August, but so far they are only planning them for around the 4th of July holiday and maybe a few other special dates in 2014. No confirmation from the park on just what these new entertainment concepts may be, only that they are looking for things that offer new and unique experiences for their guests.
    (10/7/13) The local news reports that Six Flags Entertainment has bought up the remaining ownership interest from the partner group for the Six Flags Great Escape Lodge & Indoor Waterpark. While Six Flags owns The Great Escape, they have had a silent partner for the waterpark resort from the start. The article also says that 35 newly renovated Premium suites will be ready for guests in December.


2014 - Extreme Supernova - (5/23/14) A new video showing off Extreme Supernova in action, the new ride at The Great Escape this season, has been posted by the local news. Check it out below.

    (8/29/13) The Great Escape will add a new high-flying and spinning flat ride in 2014 called Extreme Supernova, a 16 passenger Afterburn style ride experience. Watch the video here.



icon_STOP2015 - Buccaneer Beach - (8/28/14) New for 2015 is Buccaneer Beach, a new water sprayground for families with a pirate theme added to the existing Noah's Sprayground. "Kids will love splashing down tyke-sized water slides, dodging fun pop-up spray jets, and chilling on the pool deck. Mom and Dad can relax in the shade while their little fishes are busy figuring out new ways to get drenched. Shiver me timbers!"

    (8/26/14) Coaster-Net did some incredible digging into the official Six Flags website and using their knowledge of Drupal, the content management system Six Flags uses for it, apparently they were able to pull the names for many of the new 2015 attractions to be announced on Thursday.
    According to their report The Great Escape sounds like they are adding some wet fun this year with something named Buccaneer Beach.
