Six Flags announced plans to renew its partnership with Nintendo for the 2008
season. As part of the agreement, Six Flags will feature and operate the
Wii Experience in 10 of its theme parks across the country. Each Wii
Experience will house 10 consoles.

They should also sell Wii hardware and software in the park. Seems like a no brainer. Selling Wii hardware could possibly serve as a draw during the fall as the consoles go into sell out status.

And why would they have them stocked if stores did not?

The consoles have been in sold-out status for a long time. They're almost impossible to find! SFA had this last year, so it's good to know it'll be back.

During a rain period last year, the Wii area was mobbed with people. Quite often there was massive hogging of the remotes and it got a bit ugly in there.

I thought video games are exactly what Amusement Parks are in competition with? Kids see Wii, want Wii, and there is $250 of the families entertainment budget, then $50 each month. Seems pretty good on Nintendo's end(depending how much they are paying) because the Wii ends up in the hands of millions of their target audience.

I only saw 2 people all day on Sunday at the Wii Experience at SFoG... And they even had Smash Bros up and running ;)
