Darien Lake is Now Officially Six Flags Darien Lake

Record-Setting Thrill Ride and a Host of Exciting New Enhancements on Tap for 2019


Darien Lake will be rebranded Six Flags Darien Lake when the park opens this spring for the 2019 season. The Coaster Capital of New York is also debuting an exhilarating, new attraction—Six Flags SkyScreamer—the tallest attraction in the state of New York. Towering high above the park at a staggering, 242-ft. in height, this thrilling swing ride will reign supreme as the region’s new, iconic symbol—beckoning guests of all ages from near and far.


“Six Flags is a world-renowned leader in thrills and innovation and we are delighted to return the Six Flags name to our park,” said Six Flags Darien Lake President Chris Thorpe. “Our new Six Flags SkyScreamer is a dramatic, unique addition to our lineup of thrilling rides and attractions and now all Members and Season Pass holders can enjoy free, unlimited visits to Six Flags Darien Lake, Six Flags New England, The Great Escape and all Six Flags theme parks across the country. It’s an incredible value that only Six Flags can offer.”


The park’s latest attraction, Six Flags SkyScreamer, takes 32 thrill-seekers 24 stories into the air while spinning round and round at speeds of up to 35 miles per hour. Guests soar through the clouds with majestic views of the park and surrounding countryside far below. By night, Six Flags SkyScreamer’s bold, synchronized illumination patterns will light up the skies.

Six Flags Darien Lake opens for the season on Saturday, May 4. Guests arriving at the park will be greeted by a revamped main gate area with a towering, new digital pylon and a new Six Flags Darien Lake entrance sign.
