Hoax: Six Flags park not opening in Florida

A story that's been shared thousands of times has fooled Floridians across the state, myself included, unfortunately.

No, Six Flags isn't coming to Florida. Yes, I feel silly for aggregating from a spoof site.

The satirical site SpringHillCourier.com wrote that ground would break this summer on a Six Flags park that would open in 2018, complete with fake quotes from made-up officials.

My apologies to readers and everyone who shared and/or believed the story. Seeing as theme park hoaxes tend to be par for the course around these parts, I should have heed the warning.
