Six Flags Schuyler Lake is a theme park located in Canandaigua, New York.

HistoryEdit

Pre-Cedar Point (1913-1975)Edit

The park opened in 1913 by the Schuyler family. The park was owned by The Walt Disney Company from 1962 until 1975.

First Era of Cedar Point Pleasure Company (now Cedar Fair) (1976-1982)Edit

In 1976, the park was sold to Cedar Point Pleasure Company (now known as Cedar Fair).

Funtime Parks, Inc. (1983-1994)Edit

In 1983, Cedar Fair leased the park's operations to Funtime Parks, Inc. In 1991, Funtime Parks, Inc. took over ownership of the park from Cedar Fair.

Premier Parks (1995-1998)Edit

In 1995, Premier Parks bought the park from Funtime Parks, Inc.

First Six Flags Era (1999-2010)Edit

In 1999, Six Flags took over the park's operations and ownership following the Premier Parks acquisition. The park never took the "Six Flags" branding officially during this time. However during this time Schuyler Lake still used Six Flags' intellectual properties in the park.

Second Cedar Fair Era (2011-2015)Edit

In November 2010, Six Flags sold the park back to Cedar Fair and numerous changes occurred at the park, mostly ride renaming.

Financial problems, bankruptcy and closure Edit

In 2014, the park, amidst financial problems and filed for bankruptcy shorty before the start of the 2015 season. As a result, most of the park's rides and attractions were closed for most of the 2015 season due to budget cuts at the park. On Labor Day 2015, Schuyler Lake closed with no notice to park guests and employees leaving the entire park SBNO.

Reopening and Six Flags' return (2017-present) Edit

In October 2016, Six Flags announced that they've bought from Schuyler Lake from Cedar Fair and saved the park from bankruptcy. In May 2017, Schuyler Lake reopened as "Six Flags Schuyler Lake" . As a result the DC Comics and Looney Tunes characters return to the park mostly in form of costumed characters. Also some of the rides were renamed again and the "V2: Vertical Velocity" and "Goliath" names returned to the park.
