Theme-park chain Six Flags announced Saturday, June 13, 2009 that it was filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy to shed $1.8 billion in debt. The filing will not affect the operation of the company's 20 parks, a spokeswoman said. President and CEO Mark Shapiro said the company actually performed well in 2008 (sure thing, buddy), attracting 25 million visitors and making $275 million.
