Save Mr.Six & sign the petition.

Not gonna happen.

Someone needs to get over it.

Seriously, go read the petition. It's creepy.

The only thing sillier than trying to 'save' a coaster is trying to save an advertising tool.

If Dan Snyder or a board member actually reads the comments on the petition, they'll be convinced that removing Mr. Six was the correct thing to do, as the only people that seem to care are 12-year olds that think they know everything about the company and couldn't string a proper sentence together if their life depended on it. That's not exactly the audience Six Flags wants to advertise to.

I think it was the correct thing for Six Flags to do.

I do feel alone in that notion

I liked the little old man, and thought him to be a very cute advertising mascot, but I can't see how a petition that will get 1,000 (at best) signitures all of whome would be teenagers is going to do anything.

Thing is Six Flags has not even said that the Mr. Six campaign is going away. Snyder said that want he wanted to do. But will it happen? I doubt anything is going to change for the 2006 season. Way too late in the year to rethink of a whole new campaign.

I'm happy Six Flags is getting rid of Mr. Six. I've found that entire campaign to be annoying as hell.

I think Six Flags did fine back in the Time Warner days when the TV ads just featured the dancing mascots or anything. (Well, besides the Looney Tunes)

I would like to know if anything, EVER has ever changed due to an online petition. Other than positive cash flow of the sites that host them.

I'm glad Cypress Gardens and Knoebels don't seem to think like that, and by the way, a saved coaster is a great advertising tool. I hope the group working on saving Zippin Pippin is successful.

You'd just love this week's podcast. ;)

All of two coasters 'saved'. Look out! We're changing the world!

a saved coaster is a great advertising tool

I couldn't disagree more.

A saved coaster is great for advertising to tools. ;)

(winky face already! Harmless ribbing. I'm a coaster tool as much as anyone around here. :) )

Give that man a prize! :)

It's not about changing the world. It's about making it a little bit better place than it was before. I disagree with you as well...winky face.

I bet I could find more people willing to contribute to send a nice "thank you" gift basket to Dan Snyder.
Monday, December 12, 2005 9:09 PM
I signed it and am proud to say that I did.

Has any petition ever worked in the Amusement industry? The only thing I can think of is Whizzer at SFGAM but even then I don't think a petition was drawn up.
Monday, December 12, 2005 9:42 PM
I think it has already determined that the Whizzer was in no threat of being removed, and the "Save the Whizzer" campaign was actually a brilliant PR marketing campaign. When a park decides to remove a ride and purchases a new ride designed for that specific space, no amount of whining by enthusiasts is going to change the park's mind.

I gotta go with Gonch on this one. CREEEEEEPY! I go to Coaster-Net often, and I read that they were upset about the Mr. Six thing, but I didn't realize how caught up in it they were.

Wallpapers?? I had to get off that screen before my daughter saw it. She loves Mr. Six! And I don't want that face coming up every time I turn my computer on.

As far as the petition in's over. SF has made the decision!

LOL Dan Snyder is like the George Bush of Six Flags now, lots of people are starting to hate him.

In a word... no. *** Edited 12/13/2005 4:00:47 AM UTC by BBSpeed26***

I signed it just to be a dork...and because I'm gonna miss that old fart.

...Floorless Fan, We don't know for sure if they are going to get rid of Ol' Mr. Six or not. Six Flags haven't said that he is definitely going or not.

lol. What if this rumor was misinformation to make him even more iconic, like the Whizzer?
