Six Flags Is Officially Taking Over Magic Waters In 2019
The deal between Six Flags Rockford Park District is signed, sealed, and delivered. The agreement could last 30 years!
After a month or so of waiting, all 11 taxing authorities in Winnebago County have finally voted in favor of approving Six Flags Entertainment Corporation's request of not paying property taxes for the area of which Magic Water sits as worded in SF's leasing proposal. Rockford Park District has not had to pay these taxes in 30 years, which leads to the next big update. We now have an idea of how long Six Flags could be in Rockford.
In a statement from Rockford Park District, this could be more than a 30-year agreement.
Six Flags leasing and operating Magic Waters Waterpark for 10 years, with three 10-year options to renew.
Six Flags Entertainment Corporation will officially be handed the keys of Magic Waters on April 1, 2019. And, no joke, Magic Waters admission will be included in Six Flags Gold season passes and memberships, according to WREX.
