Executive Director of the Rockford Park District shared some great Six Flags takeover details during his chat with The Steve Shannon Show.

On Wednesday, October 10 came the news the Magic Waters Waterpark will be taken over by Six Flags, the largest regional theme park company in the world. Six Flags officials hope to take over day-to-day operations of the park by the beginning of the 2019 season.

We reached out to Jay Sandine from the Rockford Park District to get all the details, including the truth behind one big takeover rumor. We get the truth about that rumor and it's THE BEST PART of this whole thing. The video below includes portions of the conversation that were not heard on The Steve Shannon Show.

You probably have many more questions, many of which can't be answered until Six Flags begins operating the park. Until then, what an exciting time for Rockford-area residents and visitors.
