Adding Six Flags could possibly bring the others out of business but it would bring in far more money. Or possibly combining them. Denver has a lot of open area and it fairly large. Beautiful views, it's a tourist place so not only could you go to Six Flags you can relax poolside at a hotel, go out for a nice dinner and talk


But a factor that can cause some problems, not just here but anywhere, the weather. Colorado has fairly decent weather. During the summer it is hot, sunny. The perfect time to go to Six Flags, the winters are cold but not many people will be going to Six Flags anywhere in cold weather. Six Flags and the weather in Denver mix well. Out of the four seasons you can visit comfortably 3 out of the four, winter can be a bit brutal.
