Six Flags is an amusement park company that is the largest organization of its kind in the world. It is also ranked in the top five as far as popularity, measured in attendance. There are almost twenty properties in North America, which includes all three countries – the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The headquarters is located in Texas and it was founded in the early 1960s. There is also a corporate office located in New York City. There are fewer than 2,000 employees who work full time, but during seasonal peaks (such as over the summer) that number increases to almost thirty thousand. The park serves tens of millions of guests every year and offers theme parks, thrill rides, entertainment events, and water parks. Some of the properties have additional themes, such as the original location in Texas.
