The theme park operator announced Tuesday that it had entered into a purchase agreement with Premier Parks, LLC to purchase the lease rights to manage five of its water parks, including the 35-acre park near 43rd Avenue and Pinnacle Peak Road in Phoenix.
"We are thrilled to welcome these outstanding properties and employees into our family of parks and look forward to sharing the thrill of Six Flags with guests of all ages in these key markets" said Jim Reid-Anderson, Six Flags chairman, CEO and president, in a prepared statement.
He said the properties "complement our existing portfolio and provide tremendous value and cross-visitation opportunities for our extensive membership and season pass base," according to the release.
Sandra Daniels, a spokeswoman for Six Flags Entertainment, said in an email that pass holders would not have immediate access to Wet 'n' Wild "but we hope to be able to offer that access...in the near future."
In a phone interview on Thursday, she said the theme park company is excited to join the Phoenix market and that there are no "immediate plans" to make changes to the water park.
