Six Flags Entertainment Corporation has entered into an agreement with EPR Properties to operate Waterworld California.

The waterpark is located in Concord, 18 miles southeast of Six Flags Discovery Kingdom and close to San Francisco.

The agreement is subject to approval by the City of Concord. Northern California’s largest waterpark, Waterworld was previously owned and operated by Six Flags before being sold as part of clearout by the regional park operator in 2007. Now back in the group’s portfolio, it will be Six Flags’ 20th property in the USA. The company plans to market the waterpark alongside Discovery Kingdom to local families and thrill seekers.

Speaking of the agreement with EPR, Six Flags president and CEO John Duffey comments: “This is an exciting new venture and a great opportunity. “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 Waterworld California back into our family of parks.”
