Volta Inc., a company focused upon commerce-centric electric vehicle (“EV”) charging networks, is partnering with Six Flags Entertainment Corporation, a world-leading regional theme park company and the largest operator of waterparks in North America, to make EV charging accessible to its guests at their parks across the United States.
Six Flags’ strategy centers around modernizing the guest experience through technology. Installing EV charging stations is the latest step towards the company’s vision and commitment to environmental sustainability. At the forefront of innovation in the industry, Six Flags is the first theme park company to have Volta charging stations available to its guests. The first charging stations will be installed at Six Flags America, just outside of Washington, D.C., with more parks to follow.
Stephanie Borges, Six Flags vice president of strategic marketing and partnerships, added, “Six Flags is committed to incorporating technology that elevates our guests’ experiences through innovation. The partnership with Volta will enable us to provide a unique offering for our guests, while also supporting our sustainability initiatives.”
Founded on the premise that the electrification of mobility is likely to be a transformational shift, Volta builds and operates a nationwide EV charging network that has among the best utilization per station in the EV charging industry for the United States. Centered around capturing new spending habits expected to result from the shift to electric vehicles, Volta seeks to transform the fueling industry by building charging stations in locations where drivers already spend their time and money, including grocery stores, pharmacies, retailers and other entertainment locations.
“We are thrilled to partner with a leader in theme parks and entertainment to fulfill their guests’ needs for EV charging and contribute to their sustainability goals,” said Scott Mercer, Founder and CEO of Volta. “We aim to provide easy, open and accessible EV charging stations where people already live, work, shop and play. Our Six Flags partnership illustrates just that.”
