I decree this now officially seals it: The suck-factor will be going WAAAAY up on most SixFlags coasters. Pretty soon, you'll see the scramblers with ads on them, or River Rapids rides looking like LifeSavers candy.

 

It's bad enough they desecrated Whizzer and Mindbender... but how long will it be before Superman gets pudgy off of a Dove bar? Will Batman gain weight from his encounters with the Milky Way?

The company has said that they are decreasing the train wrapping. Sponsorship will now just focus on SFTV and all the little signs they have in the park. ^Plus DC themed coasters can't have any sponsorship on it whatsoever as part of the contract the two companies have.

Are you sure you don't already work for Six Flags Entertainment's advertising department? That sounds EXACTLY like something they'd do!

Back quite a while ago, I was part of a regional airline that decided to cover everything on a plane in advertising... I guess it comes naturally to me.

 

Future ad developments for SFInc:

Mylanta/Dramamine/Pepto Bismol wrapped spinning flats (Picture an Enterprise looking like an enormous Pepto tablet!)

Pampers/Huggies themed children's areas (Looney Toons World: Now 50% more leakproof!)

Wooden Coasters will be sponsored by Lowes's/Hopeless Depot (I see Bob Vila helping with the wraps on this...)

Steel coasters sponsored by Rust-O-Leum (Except Vekoma coasters: Sponsored by Advil/Aleve/Tylenol)

Water rides sponsored by Brita ("Kids, look out! It's the filtered spigot!")

Log flumes wrapped in DuraFlame wraps (Only burns when you WANT it to!)

Drop towers sponsored by Traveller's Insurance ("Is this trip REALLY necessary!")

 

It's coming folks... just wait for it.

Six Flags Parks Introduce Slurpee® Drinks Availability Just in Time for Spring Break

GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas, March 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Six Flags Entertainment Corporation (NYSE: SIX), the global leader in regional theme parks, today announced a new partnership with 7-Eleven, Inc., the largest chain in convenience retailing, for its Slurpee® drink to be the Official Frozen Carbonated Beverage of Six Flags.

Slurpee fans can now enjoy their favorite frozen beverage at all 11 Six Flags U.S. theme parks, marking the first time in history the beverage has been widely distributed outside 7-Eleven retail stores. To celebrate, 7-Eleven and Six Flags will offer guests exclusive ride-time events at 7:11 p.m. during special nights at the parks, giveaways, games and other activities. In addition, an exclusive, refillable Slurpee souvenir cup will be available for purchase at all participating Six Flags parks starting Memorial Day weekend. Beginning June 1, guests may bring their 32-oz. Slurpee Six Flags Souvenir cup to a local 7-Eleven to refill their drink for only 99 cents.

In June, participating 7-Eleven stores will kick off the Twister Cup Sweepstakes and award one grand prize winner a trip to Six Flags Great America, which includes the ultimate "twisting" experience on X-Flight—the ground-breaking new wing coaster opening this spring. 7-Eleven and Six Flags fans can enter the sweepstakes by registering for Slurpee Nation Rewards at www.slurpee.com and redeeming the sweepstakes entry in the rewards catalog.

"Six Flags is an ideal destination for family and friends to join together and have fun, so we are thrilled to partner with 7-Eleven and provide our customers with a Slurpee drink to make their trip even more enjoyable," said Jeff Portugal, vice president of corporate alliances and partnership marketing at Six Flags. "Slurpee drinks will fit seamlessly into our beautiful theme park environment."

"Enjoying Slurpee drinks while spending a day at Six Flags in the spring or summer is a real treat for families, kids and teens," said Laura Gordon, 7-Eleven vice president of brand innovation." At some park locations where 7-Eleven may not have stores nearby and Slurpee drinks aren't available, the opportunity to enjoy the frozen beverage at Six Flags may be a new treat. Bottom-line, Six Flags and Slurpee beverages are all about having fun, so it's an ideal fit to make Slurpee drinks even more convenient for our customers where they play."

I love how every company out there "Offers a premium line" of their product. Its like an advertising ploy so badly done. What ? is Red Gold going to say "As Red Gold we are pleased to offer you a trash heap of Red bloody goo and sloopy crap in a packet?"

 

Oh and offering guest a slurpee drink? Uh, most parks already have those Slush stations with like 30 flavors. So it sounds like a rebranding of those.
