Six Flags and Spike TV together?

Thursday, October 7, 2004 9:56 PM
Has Six Flags signed some sort of deal with Spike TV? I'm watching MXC and they mentioned that a guy worked at a Six Flags in Kennebunkport during the Bush/Kerry game, and then I just saw a Six Flags Fright Fest ad - even though the closest Six Flags to Pittsburgh is what, Great Adventure?

It didn't even mention a specific park (although I did notice a cool shot of Zonga and Nitro) but I just thought it was a little odd that I'd see a Six Flags ad in Pittsburgh on the same night as they make a Six Flags reference in an obviously recently-made MXC.

Anyone else notice this one?

Doubtful. I did see that SF mention though, and laughed my butt off :).

Spike TV is owned by Viacom, which owns Paramount Parks.

It's about 3.75 hours to Darien Lake, 4 hours to Six Flags America, and 5.5 hours to Great Adventure from Pittsburgh. While not a "Six Flags" parks, Wyandot Lake is about 3 hours away.

Right you are, Phantom.

I did see that reference a few nights ago, and I loved it! I was laughing my a** off! Indeed!

I think Six Flags is just paying for ads on Cable Channels where they get national coverage... I saw an ad for Fright Fest on Adult Swim, the late night line-up on Cartoon Network. (Cartoon Network is owned by Turner Cable Network, which in the past few years was bought by AOL Time Warner)

I'm also near pittsburgh so it doesn't make sense for them to be paying for local advertisments. (Although I saw an advertisment for GL on a Pittsburgh Channel) *** Edited 10/13/2004 3:21:47 AM UTC by UdoTch***
