April 27, 2017 – Six Flags announced that the theme park chain has agreed to operate Waterworld California. The Northern California water park, which was formerly owned and operated by Six Flags, features more than 35 water attractions, including the region’s largest wave pool. Its newest attraction, Break Point Plunge, is a 270 foot (82 m) long looping thrill ride that launches riders in a capsule from a height of more than six stories.
“This is an exciting new venture and a great opportunity to provide families with more entertainment options in this important market,” Six Flags President and CEO John Duffey said. “Guests in Northern California will now have the opportunity to enjoy two beautiful Six Flags parks. This is truly a win-win, as we welcome our 20th property—Waterworld California—back into our family of parks.”
Waterworld California is located 18 miles (29 km) southeast of Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. The agreement is subject to approval by the City of Concord.
