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.
