Six Flags México is an amusement park located in the Tlalpan forest and borough, on the southern edge of Mexico City, Mexico. It is owned and operated by Six Flags Inc. and the only Six Flags park operating in Latin America. Six Flags México is the most visited theme park in Mexico and Latin America. It was previously known as Reino Aventura and was a Mexican-owned and run theme park, during which time the orca whale Keiko (featured in the movie Free Willy) was its principal attraction.


Reino Aventura (Spanish for "Adventure Kingdom") opened its gates in 1982, and is since then the largest theme park in Latin America. The park's mascot was a purple cartoon dragon named Cornelio. Since its opening, no new attractions were added, thus attendance dropped. In 1992 the park was closed for an extensive remodeling as well as adding new rides, opening once again on July 3, 1993, with the new moniker El Nuevo Reino Aventura (The New Adventure Kingdom) featuring new rides such as Río Salvaje (Wild River, a raft ride), Viaje Inesperado (Unexpected Trip, a motion simulator) and Roller Skater (a Vekoma Kiddie Coaster) and Power Tower (Now is Kilahuea) In that same year, the feature film Free Willy was shot in the park. This attracted numerous animal rights organizations, which pressured the park to free the orca Keiko. After Keiko left, Cornelio the dragon became once again the Park's official mascot.

In 1999, Premier Parks bought Reino Aventura for an estimated $59 million. Under new administration, the park's name was officially changed to Six Flags. Twenty new attractions were added to the park, including Batman: The Ride and Medusa, a wooden roller coaster. It opened its gates again on April 11, 2000 as Six Flags México.

Premier Parks bought the rest of the stocks on Six Flags, and became Six Flags Inc., which is their current name. Six Flags México has the last Vekoma Waikiki Wave Super Flip, named Hurricane. Latest coaster openings in Six Flags México include Superman el Último Escape (2004), Magic Light Parade (2008), and The Dark Knight (2009).

In 2011, the park opened Terminator X: A Laser Battle for Salvation, an indoor themed laser tag attraction.[1] On September 6, 2012, Six Flags México announced The Joker a Gerstlauer spinning coaster for the 2013 season.[2] The Joker was relocated from Six Flags Discovery Kingdom as Pandemonium from 2008-2012.[3][4] Also announced is two new events in October and December, Festival del Terror and Christmas in the Park, both starting in 2012.[2] In June 2013, Six Flags México announced on Facebook that an attraction at the park will be closing at the end of summer 2013. On July 1, 2013, Cowboy Stunt Show was announce for the park, which will play at The Chinese Theater. On August 29, 2013, Six Flags officially announced the renovation of Medusa to Medusa Steel Coaster that will feature steel tracks and multiple inversions for the 2014 season.[5] On August 28, 2014, it was announced that the park would get a Funtime Starflyer named Skyscreamer in 2015. On September 3, 2015, it was announced that the park would get Justice League: Battle For Metropolis 4D in 2016. On September 1, 2016, it was announced that the park would get new things in 2017.
