After a successful first season since the transformation of Jazzland, Six Flags New Orleans wants to optimize its experience with a number of changes to its infrastructure. The park is also in the early planning stages of building a water park.

Six Flags changed the theme of the movie simulator ride from Cajun Pirates to SpongeBob SquarePants.

Isn't SpongeBob the property of Viacom which in turn owns the Paramount Parks? I have never heard of a Six Flags park with anything relating to Spongebob.

Hopefully they will start putting Spongebob in other SF parks. My daughter loves that cartoon.*** This post was edited by Chitown 3/17/2004 10:21:13 AM ***

SpongeBob is popping up all over, we are getting it in our simulator at SFOT, and I've seen that SFGAd announced they would be getting SB too.

I find it amazing that Six Flags, Cedar Fair and Paramount parks are all running the same simulator. Is no one else making simulator movies?

It's too bad about the one in Jazzland, that was a very unique attraction, specific to the New Orleans area.

I heard that if a Paramount park had the spongebob film it would be exclusive to that market. SFWoA was supposed to get the Stargate film this season to replace MBT, while most other SF parks are getting spongebob. Only because SFWoA was inthe same market as PKI.

Is it that or does it just attest to the wild popularity of Spongebob at this time? I have to think Spongebob is a hot commodity at this time and everybody wants in on it.

Is it the same SpongeBob simulator 3-D movie that is currently at PKI? If so, that was a pretty decent film.

I'm not sure... It's about spongebob making a hamburger, and the last slice of pickle gets away from him... Ring any bells?

Hmm, exact same movie. SF must be paying a pretty penny to get that from Paramount.

As long as SFNO keeps the Sally Dark Ride they have, they'll have enough New Orleans flavor. Not to mention that most of their coasters are Louisiana themed.

Six Flags is not paying Paramount anything. The company that created the motion sychronized film has exclusive rights to sell or do whatever they want with this film so I'm told. However, as previously mentioned the film will not be displayed at Six Flags parks that are in the same market as Paramount. Although I thought the film was getting to be just too tacky (seen it too many times) I will miss it. Wish I could get a copy of it ;) I've always had so much fun quoting parts of it and laughing at how silly it was.*** This post was edited by Cameraman 3/18/2004 6:32:02 PM ***

Well , if that's the case, and SFGAm isn't anywhere near the radar of a Paramount Park, bring that Spongebob movie into the motion simulator and get rid of Space Shuttle America.

From what I've heard, that may be happening.
