    NEW YORK, Oct 03, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Reinforcing the company's position as the premier family entertainment destination, Six Flags, Inc. announced today a sweeping capital expansion plan for the 2008 operating season, one of the largest capital investments in the company's 47-year history.

    As part of the company-wide program, Six Flags parks will introduce new thrill and family rides -- featuring the industry's most innovative and exciting attractions -- as well as new special events to offer guests of all ages world class entertainment and more reasons to make Six Flags part of their vacation or day trip plans.

In 2008, we round out the revitalization of the company with the unprecedented introduction of seven coasters and new thrill attractions that will equally appeal to teens and families."

    Glad to see something family oriented is going to Magic Mountain. But with recent issues with Thomas the Tank, I wonder if that's the best choice anymore.

    With the toys being recalled for lead paint ... TWICE.

    Thomas isn't exaclty the most popular toy with parents at the moment.

    So true! Now days toys are painted with lead paint. Back when I was a kid, they were painted with lead paint and fired projectiles!

    Back on topic, the Wildcatter rollercoaster at Six Flags over Texas was imploded the other day to make room for Tony Hawk's new ride.

    I thought they imploded the Intamin Drop Tower, not the coaster? Or did they do both? Either way, that would have been pretty neat to see!

    There was video on Fixed Noise, but it's not on YouTube.

    It's here on the KXAS NBC5 web pages.
