Six Flags will bring back the Mr. Six ad campaign, building off of the wild popularity of the character last year. The new TV spot is paired with a promise to give guests an improved experience.
Read the press release and see the new TV spot from PR Newswire.

I'm not sure which of Coasterbuzz's creative genuises spiced up the Summary on the front page but thanks. I like the whole geriatric dancer thing.
The commerical is decent. I think the whole Mr. Six stuffed the bus in a barn and spent the winter in a retirement home thing awaiting for the arrival of spring. I see some resemblance between Mr. Six and myself. Can't stand winter two things I look foward to, first day of baseball spring training and the opening of the first park in the Mid-Atlantic. Signs that spring is around the corner.

Good commercial. How do you tactfully say, "We're finally aware that our customer service generally blows... please come back"?
I'm admittedly a cynic, but I doubt that a roving "Playtime Patrol" will make patrons as happy as simply keeping rides open, lines moving, and the parks clean.

I think these Mr. Six commercials are a good step toward improving the chain's image. Plus they are hilarious and memorable.

Does anyone know how old this guy really is? Or who
he is for that matter?

I don't think there was any doubt they planned to use him again this year, considering he is 1) on the season passes and 2) on a whole lot of merchandise in the parks. I saw Mr Six bobbleheads at Fiesta Texas two weeks ago.

^^Don't forget that they are actaully theming a coaster after "mr six" this year at SFNE, so they almost had to bring him back. Who wants to name a ride after something that doesn't exist anymore??
