The company says the sale is part of its strategy to reduce debt and enhance its operational and financial flexibility. Six Flags had total long-term debt of more than $2 billion of as last September, when it filed its most recent quarterly report.

Six Flags St. Louis annually draws hundreds of thousands of visitors.
