    The review of the Six Flags review is very interesting. I had some similar critiques/backlash back when I posted my article too. It’s funny because that review starts out by saying that you seemed to be expecting Six Flags to be like Disney, when I thought it was pretty clear you didn’t expect that at all! At least the article is respectful, but I don’t understand their main point that you shouldn’t compare Disney and Six Flags. Yes, they give different experiences, but they are also similar experiences in many ways and for people that might not have the money to do both, such a comparison is warranted. But I am glad that they treated your review in a civilized way and conceded to some of the major issues (like rude employees and line jumping).

      Their desire to engage with me was a little confusing. I was thinking about it … if I saw someone write something nasty about Disney, I’d just dismiss it.

      But for the most part, they were very nice about it, and I was glad for the conversation about theme parks. It’s changed the way I think about places like Six Flags a bit, for sure.

  2. Thank you so much for including me in your round up!
