Six Flags and Frito-Lay announced a seven-year, multi-million dollar sponsorship agreement. Frito-Lay will utilize the benefits of the partnership to access the millions of consumers who attend the 28 Six Flags properties across the United States. Frito-Lay will sponsor a major thrill-ride attraction at each of the 15 branded Six Flags theme parks in the United States. Frito-Lay will also have in-park television, publishing, and Internet marketing rights on www.sixflags.com.
Read the press release on Yahoo.
Does this mean that they'll rename the area for Raging Bull at SFGAm "Cool Ranch?"

This just in ... the new WoA hyper will be known as the "Dorito". The track and supports will be all orange with some yellow spots and the first hill will have a familiar triangular shape to it ...

Hmm, that's a good question. Since this deal seems to be specific about the convenience foods division of Pepsi, I wouldn't think so - but you never know, that might be part of the deal somehow.
We've already lost one classic ride name at Astroworld, Bamboo Shoot which has been in the park 30+ years is now the Ozarka Splash. I shudder to think what's going to get the Fritos treatment.

I still think the most obvious sponsership tie-in with SFWoA would be Twizzlers: Ultimate Escape. Ride first, eat later.
When i went to SFNE monday all the had was pepsi. I didnt see coca cola anywere (unfortuanatly) since i like it a lot.
Im the #1 Canobie Lake Park Fan!!!These are my top 3 coasters:
1. S:RoS @ SFNE 2. Yankee Cannonball 3. Cyclone
Can you image the RC Cola Georgia Cylone or the Canada Dry Rapids Ride? Better yet, Superman's Icehouse Escape.

Beware, you may lose your glasses to THE BEAST!
I just wish Frito Lay would sponsor my auto, somebody, not just Frito I'll take anybody. I need it more than Six Flags. I can see myself driving around in the Honda Honda Civic;). Or maybe my Civic, brought to you by GMAC or something.
