I think you're all missing the point with my comment about Six Flags. I honestly don't give a lick about how their theming compares to Disney. My main point is -- you have a pretty big company like Six Flags operating parks across the country with rides costing millions and millions of dollars, asking consumers to pay a pretty hefty price to get inside those parks. Cheaper than Disney sure, but ultimately, they're still operating a business and taking money from people. Magic Mountain, which is I believe their flagship park (no pun intended), is an absolute dump. As others have said... buildings completely falling apart, bathrooms that you won't want to go within 100 feet of, dirty rides, poor staffing/training, awful restaurants. Local city parks are kept up better than this place. They shouldn't get a break just because they don't go all out on theming. Theming is one thing, maintenance, cleanliness and customer service is completely different.
