    Six Flags - Investor Relations - Financial Release

    Six Flags Parks Introduce Slurpee® Drinks Availability Just in Time for Spring Break
    GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas, March 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Six Flags Entertainment Corporation (NYSE: SIX), the global leader in regional theme parks, today announced a new partnership with 7-Eleven, Inc., the largest chain in convenience retailing, for its Slurpee® drink to be the Official Frozen Carbonated Beverage of Six Flags.

    Slurpee fans can now enjoy their favorite frozen beverage at all 11 Six Flags U.S. theme parks, marking the first time in history the beverage has been widely distributed outside 7-Eleven retail stores. To celebrate, 7-Eleven and Six Flags will offer guests exclusive ride-time events at 7:11 p.m.during special nights at the parks, giveaways, games and other activities. In addition, an exclusive, refillable Slurpee souvenir cup will be available for purchase at all participating Six Flags parks starting Memorial Day weekend. Beginning June 1, guests may bring their 32-oz. Slurpee Six Flags Souvenir cup to a local 7-Eleven to refill their drink for only 99 cents.

    In June, participating 7-Eleven stores will kick off the Twister Cup Sweepstakes and award one grand prize winner a trip to Six Flags Great America, which includes the ultimate "twisting" experience on X-Flight—the ground-breaking new wing coaster opening this spring. 7-Eleven and Six Flags fans can enter the sweepstakes by registering for Slurpee Nation Rewards at www.slurpee.com and redeeming the sweepstakes entry in the rewards catalog.

    "Six Flags is an ideal destination for family and friends to join together and have fun, so we are thrilled to partner with 7-Eleven and provide our customers with a Slurpee drink to make their trip even more enjoyable," said
    Jeff Portugal, vice president of corporate alliances and partnership marketing at Six Flags. "Slurpee drinks will fit seamlessly into our beautiful theme park environment."
    "Enjoying Slurpee drinks while spending a day at Six Flags in the spring or summer is a real treat for families, kids and teens," said

    Laura Gordon, 7-Eleven vice president of brand innovation." At some park locations where 7-Eleven may not have stores nearby and Slurpee drinks aren't available, the opportunity to enjoy the frozen beverage at Six Flags may be a new treat. Bottom-line, Six Flags and Slurpee beverages are all about having fun, so it's an ideal fit to make Slurpee drinks even more convenient for our customers where they play."

    wow - I thought 7-11 was on it's knees after getting pummeled by the integrated gas/store concept.

    Did SixFlags sell Icee before? Thats generally a widespread theme park brand.

    I don't think they did Icee, I can't recall though. Perhaps they did.

    At Magic Mountain they have an Ice Stand in the park so I guess they'll be changing that to Slurpees now?

    Would have made more sense to go to Universal so they could be sold a the Simpsons store but guess not

    Everyone that visits Six Flags can buy a Slurpee for the premium price of $5.65...for a small.

    Having been to quite a few of the Six Flags parks, this is a VASTLY exaggerated view. Six Flags Over Texas and Six Flags Great America have been 2 of the cleanest parks I have been to, with great employees and guests.

    Beat me to it, too. I can't wait to see the cost of this when you can pick it up for 1.49 a few exits down the freeway.
