Wizard of Oz, Harry Potter at SF?

Sunday, August 8, 2004 2:05 AM
Well, more specifically SFGAm, but I figure if it happens at this park, it's sure happening at other SF parks as well.

My daughter and I have seen clips of both of these on the monitors while waiting in line for rides. Did Six Flags reach an agreement to show these clips?

I also remember hearing the Titanic song somewhere in the park as well.

As long as I am on this subject, I also noticed Viacom merchandise being sold or won at games at SFGAm along with PKI selling Looney Tunes merchandise along with winning said stuff at their games.

Did Viacom (Owners of Paramount parks) along with Six Flags decide to license products to competitors to make a profit? I ask this because SF is presenting Spongebob 3D at some of their parks.

I know SF doesn't own the rights to the Looney Tunes brand but it just seems ironic that both amusement park companies are showcasing thier competitor's product.

I guess CF missed the boat with the Peanut's characters. :)

PKI also had Shrek, a Dreamworks film. But it seems Dreamworks and Paramount work alot together (Private Ryan, Series of Unfortunate Events...).

I guess as long as you are selling merchandise, competitors don't care who they get their cash from.

But the strangest thing @ PKI this week was hearing "We Like to Party"... I'm like, "Uh, wrong park!"

Everyone else mentioned it when it was on as well. But my entire time @ SFKK I never heard it. Only Country there, which should be banned @ parks. PKI played some country as well, come to think of it.

Wizard of OZ is now owned by WB.

WB owns Harry Potter.

The song that you heard at the Park that Sounds like Titanic is a song they always played but it's not the Titanic Song.

Merchandising for WB can be sold anywhere and I am assuming that is probably the same for Viacom there merchandise can be sold anywhere to any companies who wants to buy it. Also, when I went to MIA they were giving away Big Bugs Bunny’s as prizes so CF it doing it too. *** Edited 8/8/2004 6:36:31 AM UTC by carlo18***

Funny I heard the SF theme song all over SFKK back in May. I can't imagine it being played at PKI though.

As I'm sure +Danny and others will attest the "SF theme song" was being played in Action Zone. Its actually a song thats about 5 years old by a foreign group, and SFI dosen't own the song. THey may be using it in promos, but they don't have any say so as to who else can play it, so PKI or any park for that matter has the right to play it. But it was weird.

I'm guessing Six Flags parks just get a stuffed animal catalogue and buy the toys that would be most likely to entice kids into coughing over $$. SFMM had SpongeBob dolls as prizes in many of their games when I was there. No need for character rights or licenses - the manufacturer will hold a license for the various characters.

At SFGADV they were playing the Jurassic park Theme song. Isn't that owned by universal?

My thought on music is that any company that buys the CD should be able to play *any* song they want. I dont think there should be (or is) any restriction for an entity (individual or company) playing a record on their private property. Only if they are broadcasting it off their property (or in violation of FCC broadcasting rules) should their be any problem.

Right, jeremy. And as long as the park isn't making money off the song or using it for Promotion w/o permission, its a-ok.

I've heard from others that Disney Studios in France plays Back to the Future, Ghostbusters and Jurassic Park music on the speakers from around the park...
