Six Flags America's history can be traced back to the early 1970's when it opened as a drive through animal preserve called "The Largo Preserve".  It has changed hands, started adding rides and a water park and in the late 1980's grew into a theme park called "Wild World and "Adventure World" before being merges into the Six Flags chain when Premiere Parks purchased Six Flags.  It has grown over the years with a lineup that includes the Wild One, a John Miller and Herbert Schmeck design that dates back to 1917 (it was moved from Paragon Park), Roar and the stellar Superman The Ride of Steel.
