    Beginning with Disneyland in 1955, amusement parks shifted away from public or municipal spaces to privately owned, suburban parks, thereby reinforcing social, economic, and racial divisions. Scholars such as Victoria Wolcott argue that, rather than impose an official policy of segregation similar to other Texas parks, Six Flags supported racial exclusivity through its themed inclusion of a Confederacy section.
