Magic Waters to be leased to Six Flags


The Rockford Park District Board of Commissioners tonight unanimously approved a 10-year lease with Six Flags to operate Magic Waters.

The move allows Six Flags, the largest regional theme park company in the world, to run day-to-day operations at the water park.
The lease won’t be finalized until the Board of Commissioners vote on a property tax abatement in order to make it official.
Declining attendance and maintenance costs have made Magic Waters a financial drain on the park district in recent years.
Six Flags hopes to begin managing the water park in 2019.
