Sea World & Six
Flags Wild Life
Sea World had the
distinction of being the only marine life park in the Midwest. It's
opening in 1970 officially turned Aurora and the surrounding area into
a major destination. With Geauga Lake right next door each park was
able to feed off of each other.
dropping and Six Flags rapidly expanding across the lake, Busch
Entertainment sold the park to Six Flags in 2001 for $110 million and merged the two
properties into one complete park thus creating a Wild Life/Animal
Adventures section. The addition of the animals gave Six Flags the
right to advertise the newly christened Six Flags Worlds of
Adventure as being "three parks for the price of one."
