Will Six Flags Ride Out Tough Economy?

The Early Show series "Early Across America" highlights ways to have fun during these tough economic times.

High ticket prices are hurting some amusement parks, but Six Flags believes they are in a perfect position to ride out this rollercoaster economy, CBS News correspondent Mark Strassmann reports from Arlington, Texas.

Strassmann visited the original Six Flags amusement park outside of Dallas, which opened back in 1961.

Six Flags, which touts itself as "the world's largest regional theme park company," thinks that even in this down economy, it's doing okay. But at the same time, it's on a possible track for bankruptcy.

Strassmann highlighted the challenges Six Flags faces with 20 parks and 32,000 full and part-time employees.
