Six Flags Entertainment Corporation has agreed with EPR Properties, owner of Waterworld California, to operate the water park located in Concord, California. Waterworld California is Northern California’s largest water park, formerly owned and operated by Six Flags, and is located 18 miles (29 km) southeast of Six Flags Discovery Kingdom.
“This is an exciting new venture and a great opportunity to provide families with more entertainment options in this important market,” said Six Flags President and CEO John Duffey. “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.”
The 30-acre (12 hectare) Waterworld California features more than 35 water attractions, including the region’s largest wave pool, an interactive children’s play area and its latest offering—Break Point Plunge. This 270-foot (82 m) long looping thrill ride launches riders in a capsule from a height of more than six stories. Other extreme slides include Honolulu Halfpipe—a curved tube slide and Cliffhanger, one of the park’s signature speed slides.
