Just saw an excellent commercial for SFNE with real footage of the greatest coaster on earth, Superman TM. There also was some visuals of Medusa at SFgav to represent B:TDK and the claim that it is a floorless coaster, I guess SF finally got it right. (Distinctly remembering the words "flying " coaster attached to some SF floorless beemers in advertisements and their web site.)
Anyways, I found it real interesting that the commercial concluded with the slogan "So big, so close". This was commonly used for the SF chain but years ago or at least I thought.....I feel it is another reflection of the uncreative nature of SF. I think they could have come up with something a little more snazzy, a little more piazzas (however you spell it).
What type of slogans would us CBers come up with for the SF chain? funny or creative, I'll accept anything.
confucius say:Show-off always shown up in showdown.
Best Fortune ever!!
we've got the best rides!
we've got the best shows!
we've got everything you could ever want!
we're sorry, we don't sell Steveweisers.
nah, I think that the slogan is just fine. its reminicent of other slogans, but I don't think its been used before. I think its a great way to close those great commercials (assuming everyone else's is the same quality as SFGA's)

I believe the "original" Six Flags slogan was "So big, so fast, so close."

SFNE drops the "floor" on SFNE for 2002! Visit my new site, www.geocities.com/sfneguide for some great pics of SFNE and lots of other info.!!!
SFKK had the slogan "So Big, So Fast, So Close" in 1999. I even still have a ticket stub with that on it to prove it!
Sounds to me like their taking advantage of the "sagging economy" by telling people "Hey, remember us? Yeah, we're Six Flags and we're still here! Now that your family is tight on money, don't go to Orlando for your vacation, visit us!"
At least, that was my take on it. Could be wrong. :)

Did SF Great Adventure used to claim that they were "Bigger than Disneyland, Closer to home". I might be imagining things as this is from when i was like 6, 7, or 8 years old, 9 years ago.
I remember hearing that on TV too.. I wonder was it ever true?
If the shoe fits, find another one.
I also know that the "So big, So Close" Phrase has been used before but oh well its a good phrase and descibes how a Six Flags is near you.
