Six Flags drops marketing deals for popular brands

Posted Thursday, December 2, 2010 2:38 PM | Contributed by Jeff

Grand Prairie-based Six Flags Entertainment Corp. is ending licensing deals for some of its most popular rides as it continues a post-bankruptcy update of its 19 theme parks. The nation's largest regional theme park company is allowing deals to expire for attractions named after daredevil Evel Knievel, skateboard pro Tony Hawk and kid favorites Thomas the Tank Engine and the Wiggles, park spokeswoman Sandra Daniels said.

Sounds like we should have a contest here to come up with the best new name for Wiggles World.

what are they going to do now? i mean almost all, if not all, their parks include Wiggles World, Tony Hawk rides and or games, Thomas area, and Evel Knievel (in a few parks). I could see wiggles world turning into a genetic clown/circus/fair thing but as for the others they have to change the theming completely with all the Tony Hawk rides and Train themed areas.

Then again The Wiggles isn't as widly known in little kids anymore. Maybe they don't think Tony Hawk hasn't added any value to the parks so it would be better to have no theme or a different one. What ever the reason is I always think every time I am at six flags that the looney toons need to be incorperated in more of the park other than "hay look at me i'm welcoming you to Six flags bye enjoy your day without seeing me again." :) hahaha

Did I miss the memo? Are there attractions inspired by my childhood idol at parks OTHER than SFStL?

It could be decorated with huge murals of Jan Frederick's CoasterBuzz avatar/picture.
