Six Flags sells parks in Europe

Move is part of decision to focus on U.S. market

BERLIN — As part of a sale of its European division, U.S. theme park operator Six Flags is selling Warner Bros. Movie World in Bottrop, Germany, and six other parks in Europe to an unnamed European investor for more than $200 million.

Warner Bros. Movie World, Germany’s third largest theme park, receives between 1.5 million and 2 million visitors per year.

Six Flags also has parks in the Netherlands, Belgium and France. Despite its shift away from Europe, the group is holding on to its interests in Warner Bros. Movie World Madrid.

Move comes as part of a strategic decision to focus on the U.S. market, although last week the company also sold Six Flags Worlds of Adventure near Cleveland to Cedar Fair for $145 million.
