Scream! on Fox TV - 1:40pm CDT

Thursday, April 10, 2003 10:41 AM
The new ride @ SFMM will be on Fox TV's afternoon show w/ Jillian Anderson. It should be on in a few minutes. The promo just said they put the kids from the Bernie Mac show on the ride.

It is 1:40pm CDT right now, the promo for what is next after the commercials was on a minute ago

It was just on (1:45pm). The had cameras mounted on the front seats, 1 to look as a first person perspective, an the other was to watch the 2 kids from the Bernie Mac Show. They showed the whole run of the ride while the 3 hosts of the Fox show talked about non-scence.

Why would they broadcast the media day event nationwide? most people who watch it aren't going to just up & drop what they're doing to go to SFMM just to ride it(except enthusiasts maybe) so in a way it's a waste of time showing a ride to most people who are never going to ride it.

Yeah, and I don't really give that big of a damn about the war and cats that run up trees and keep fire fighters busy, but I suppose they think we'd be interested, right BATWINGFANSFA?

It's the damn media. They deliver NEWS. That's NEWS enough for them to air it.

Heck no! I want the Bernie Mac kids to be a part of my daily news! CNN should revolve around the Barnie Mac kids! ;)

Oh my dear BWFSFA, that's *exactly* why it's on nation wide. Preciisely *because* people *will* up and go to Six Flags.

Let me be more specific, people who are planning their vacations to so cal may end up adding SFMM to the agenda. You have to realize that So Cal is a HUGE tourist market, primarily because of Hollywood and Disneyland. But I'd be willing to bet you that the average Jane doesnt even know there is a Six Flags park out near LA. By having a promo like this, Magic Mountatin gets exposure and *may* even get those travelers to spend a day at the Mountain.

But the REAL benefit is that they get the SIX FLAGS name out nationwide. It is no accident that SFI is quickly re-branding their parks with the SIX FLAGS moniker. It's all about name recognition. Remember, just about every area in the USA is "a day's drive away" from an SF park. By showing footage of SIX FLAGS Magic Mountain nationwide, SFI gets their name out into the conciousness of a wide audience. And while it may not be *their* Six Flags on the tele, the name SIX FLAGS will still ring in their ears.

So, the best way to look at it is as a big commerical for the entire SIX FLAGS chain. Hell, they dont use commericals that *only* contain rides from the targeted park anyway, so this wouldnt be too much different. But I believe that Six Flags is trying to sell an "idea", not a specific park.
