Are you sure you don't already work for Six Flags Entertainment's advertising department? That sounds EXACTLY like something they'd do!
Back quite a while ago, I was part of a regional airline that decided to cover everything on a plane in advertising... I guess it comes naturally to me.
Future ad developments for SFInc: Mylanta/Dramamine/Pepto Bismol wrapped spinning flats (Picture an Enterprise looking like an enormous Pepto tablet!) Pampers/Huggies themed children's areas (Looney Toons World: Now 50% more leakproof!) Wooden Coasters will be sponsored by Lowes's/Hopeless Depot (I see Bob Vila helping with the wraps on this...) Steel coasters sponsored by Rust-O-Leum (Except Vekoma coasters: Sponsored by Advil/Aleve/Tylenol) Water rides sponsored by Brita ("Kids, look out! It's the filtered spigot!") Log flumes wrapped in DuraFlame wraps (Only burns when you WANT it to!) Drop towers sponsored by Traveller's Insurance ("Is this trip REALLY necessary!")
It's coming folks... just wait for it.
I got more future ad devlopment idea for Six Flags Inc.
Pandemonium (SFNE, SFOT, SFStL, SFFT) being sponsored by Pepto Bismol (with the cars painted Pepto pink!) Toys "R" Us themed kiddie lands (with Geoffry Giraffe instead of Bugs Bunny) Superman Ultimate Flight (SFDK) being sponsored by American Airlines
Just you guys wait Six Flags has gone BIG with sponsorship!

Elwood, Ind. - Red Gold, one of the nation’s largest full-line tomato processing companies, announced today a new partnership to be the “Official Ketchup of Six Flags”. This multi-year relationship includes Red Gold branded condiment stations and a signature Red Gold meatball sandwich served at select food locations in all domestic Six Flags parks. Red Gold will also receive in-park brand messaging across the Six Flags digital networks.
“Red Gold is thrilled to introduce its premium line of tomato products to Six Flags,” said Colt Reichart, Red Gold’s Manager of New Media Communications. “It is rewarding to serve Six Flags guests the quality tomato products that we have been producing and harvesting in the Midwest from our own Indiana, Ohio and Michigan fields since 1942.”
“This initiative proves that partnering with the world leader in thrills provides a unique and fun platform for executing brand building programs,” said David McKillips, Six Flags Senior Vice President of Corporate Alliances. “We look forward to seeing our partnership bloom over the coming years.”
I love how every company out there "Offers a premium line" of their product. Its like an advertising ploy so badly done. What ? is Red Gold going to say "As Red Gold we are pleased to offer you a trash heap of Red bloody goo and sloopy crap in a packet?"
Oh and offering guest a slurpee drink? Uh, most parks already have those Slush stations with like 30 flavors. So it sounds like a rebranding of those.
