There is a possibility that there could be two Six Flags Theme Parks in Missouri.

Currently, there is one Six Flags in St. Louis, but Kansas City could get one soon. This week the company that owns Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun (Cedar Fair) just combined with the Six Flags. What that means is moving forward the $2 billion deal (which all parks will now be known as Six Flags) could mean that Worlds of Fun in Kansas City could be turned into a Six Flags. Nothing has been stated or officially made public that this will happen, but how awesome would it be to have another Six Flags in Missouri?

In a press release by Cedar Fair, the combining of the two companies will give a more enjoyable park experience with improved park offerings and more fun for park enthusiasts. The themes of each park (Looney Tunes, DC, and PEANUTS) will combine as well.

The combined company will operate a portfolio of 27 amusement parks, 15 water parks and 9 resort properties across 17 states in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. The combined company will also have entertainment partnerships and a portfolio of beloved IP such as Looney Tunes, DC Comics and PEANUTS to develop engaging new attractions enabled by compelling characters, environments, and storytelling.

Again, there is no word yet officially if Worlds of Fun will eventually become a Six Flags, but we can only hope that Missouri will soon have another theme park to enjoy. According to KMBC, the deal officially becomes final at the end of next year. So we might get more details as the new year approaches.
