Jan. 18th, 2007 -- VIA PRESS RELEASE:
AGAWAM, MA — Six Flags New England announces a newly-themed area, "Wiggles World," the park's second area devoted to kids offering new pint-sized adventures designed just for them.
"Today's announcement represents Six Flags New England's continued focus on family entertainment," said Larry Litton, Six Flags New England's Park President. "In addition to our world-class coaster collection and unparalleled line-up of thrill rides including the #1 steel coaster SUPERMAN Ride of Steel, the park now features Wiggles World, a distinct area devoted to families with young children, offering entertainment and thrills for all ages."
The Wiggles are the most popular children's entertainers in the world, and "Wiggles World" will be designed to leverage their vast recognition and status among children ages 2-6. Since 1991, The Wiggles have performed to more than 1 million audience members a year. To date, they have sold more than 22 million DVDs and videos and more than
5 million albums worldwide, and The Wiggles' successful television show has been broadcast on Disney Channel's Playhouse Disney since 2002.
"Wiggles World," the park's second area devoted exclusively to children, will feature specially-themed rides and attractions including The Big Red Car ride, The Big Red Plane ride, Dorothy's Rosy Tea Cups, Wags Doggie-Copters and the S.S. Feathersword Pirate Ship just to name a few! The area will also include retail locations selling Wiggles merchandise and a restaurant, the Yummy Yummy Café, said Melissa Pinkerton Public Relations Manager.
"Wiggles World" will be populated by The Wiggles' cast of supporting characters: Dorothy the Dinosaur, Captain Feathersword, Wags the Dog and Henry the Octopus, who will pose for photos and perform in daily shows. The Wiggles themselves — Anthony, Sam, Jeff and Murray — will make an appearance and perform at the park in 2007.
The new Wiggles World is slated for a spring 2007 opening. Guests can receive up-to-the-minute park news on www.sixflags.com
