Six Flags is coming to North Phoenix. Well, sort of. The theme-park giant recently announced plans to purchase Arizona’s largest waterpark—Wet ’n’ Wild Phoenix, near 43rd Avenue and Pinnacle Peak Road.

The purchase agreement was completed in June, said Six Flags spokesperson Sandra Daniels. The 35-acre waterpark features high-speed slides, a giant wave pool, a fast-flowing river and a junior waterpark for younger kids.

The acquisition, which included the purchase of four other waterparks across the country, is part of the company’s growth initiative. For now, operations at Wet ’n’ Wild Phoenix remain status quo, with no name change and no immediate plans to extend membership rights to current Six Flags season pass holders. But Six Flags CEO Jim Reid-Anderson hinted that membership rights could come in the future.

“These are all fantastic properties that complement our existing portfolio and provide tremendous added value and cross-visitation opportunities for our extensive membership and season-pass base,” Reid-Anderson said in a statement.

No plans for additions or expansion have been announced, but “stay tuned,” Daniels said. Discuss this article on Facebook >>>
