The owners of the Great Escape have weighed in on Hoffman's Playland - they aren't interested.

The company's president tells the Capital District Business Review that despite hopeful reports to the contrary, Six Flags is not interested in buying and running the little amusement park on Route 9 in Latham. Hoffman's confirmed this week it will remain open at least through next summer. This year's season runs through Labor Day and then weekends only until the end of September.
