I like his strategy and I hope it works out. Being a former cast member, it breaks my heart to see what Six Flags Magic Mountain has become.
"If you have a theme park, about every two years, you have to put in a new ride. You have to find land," he said. "Parades are a lot easier to tweak. Just change the light bulbs and the costumes."
Maybe he's been consorting with Paul Pressler.
maybe the Six flags parks will each have a unique parade.. and every season it will go from one park to another.. and they will "tweek" the costumes and "change" the lughtbulbs then?? if not.. whatever.. I have yet been to GA (or i can remember)
The man who said that just SOOOOO doesn't get it!!!!!!Quote:

Well, if it's good enough for DCA ... it must be good enough for Six Flags. ;)
Everybody remembers when they built DCA there were (allegedly) those in Imagineering that had the idea that "If it's good enough for Six Flags, it's good enough for DCA".
Well, it looks like we have finally come full circle.
There are also rumors of a Block Party Bash type parade coming to Six Flags and that some people who designed BPB are helping design it.Quote:
VALENCIA - For Six Flags chief executive officer Mark Shapiro, the future of the theme park giant known for teenage thrill rides lies in parades, fireworks and other attractions to offer well-rounded family experience.
I think it's kind of funny really.
Could they get anymore obvious about who they are emmulating?Quote:
"We're ramping up our Main Street USA strategy," Shapiro said Tuesday during a visit to Six Flags California Magic Mountain
I love this line - "We're ramping up our Main Street USA strategy," Shapiro said Tuesday during a visit to Six Flags California Magic Mountain, a park now building its 17th roller coaster.
Does Main Street need a sea of coasters behind it?
Lmao...don't they need a clean park, friendly service, and to actually open thier rides before they worry about trying to emulate Disneyland anymore?
Ha ha ha I guess these announcements arn't helping the company though. :))Quote:
Shares of Six Flags were down 59 cents at $10.27 on the New York Stock Exchange.
Wow. It only took almost 35 years for Magic Mountain to get around to trying to be like Disneyland.
Nobody tell Six Flags about what goes on in Central Florida. They may have a heart attack if they find out.
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Disneyland should be sincerely flattered :DQuote:

The only downside to this is that without any significant challenge to Disney's originality and resources, the creative challenge may plateau.
and workers from BPB making a parade for them just like BPB? sounds like it will be a disneyland/california adventure for poor people or just a wannbe DL/DCA
Yeah, they really do need to work on that, along with the gang problems, and violence.Quote:
