Six Flags Entertainment Corporation, the world's largest regional theme park company, has reported record revenues in the first quarter of 2013.

Revenues to the three months ending March 31 totalled $88m, up 32 per cent on the first quarter of 2012.

Attendance during the period was up 41 per cent to 1.8 million guests. Approximately half of the 525,000 attendance gain resulted from an operating calendar shift due to some schools scheduling their spring breaks in March this year versus April 2012.

"We delivered another record performance in attendance, revenue and cash flow thanks to strong execution by the entire Six Flags team," said Jim Reid-Anderson, chairman, president and CEO of the Texas-based group.

"We will continue to delight our guests with enhanced offerings across all of our parks as we focus on achieving our aspirational target of $500m of modified EBITDA or nearly $6 of cash earnings per share by 2015."
