GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas, March 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Six Flags Entertainment Corporation (NYSE: SIX), the world's largest regional theme park company, is continuing its partnership with Operation Homefront by making a $100,000 ticket donation, in recognition of April as "The Month of the Military Child."
"In appreciation for the incredible service and sacrifice made by our U.S. military members and their families, Six Flags is proud to host military families for a day full of fun and thrills at Six Flags parks," said Jim Reid-Anderson, chairman, president and chief executive officer.
"Six Flags is a great place for families, and over the years they've been very generous in inviting the military families we serve to enjoy all the attractions their parks have to offer," said Tim Farrell, Chief Operating Officer for Operation Homefront.
