Six Flags hops on the 'Dream' bandwagon

As Disney gears up for its Oct. 1 launch of a "Year of a Million Dreams," Six Flags has announced a "dream" giveaway of its own.

Six season passholders at each park will win a "Dream Night" private party at the park for up to 100 of their friends, according to a Six Flags press release.

They'll live out their theme park fantasies, from the world's best thrill and family rides to dining with the Looney Tunes and Justice League characters, riding in the Six Flags parade, watching their very own customized fireworks show and -- best of all -- no lines and completely free of charge.

You enter the contest by buying a 2007 Six Flags season pass before Memorial Day 2007. The drawing will take place next July, with the "dream nights" happening in September 2007.

One more very interesting point: "Dream Nights" will be awarded at 16 Six Flags parks, including Magic Mountain and Elitch Gardens, providing the clearest indication to date that those parks, up for sale, will not close after this season after all.

There has to be more to the contest rules than just buying a season pass. To be legal in most states, there must be a "no purchase necessary to play" option.

...Which I was just about to type in the main post, until I got to the park list, and realized the significance of that. Good catch, Darrell! Thanks!

I suspect that there will be an alternate means of entry buried somewhere in the rules when they are published on the SixFlags.com site. Get your stamped 3x5 cards ready, everyone!

So, we can rule out Magic Mountain and Elitch Gardens closing this year, correct?

Oh man, this is great!

yay....how many rides will be closed for the dream night.

Every ride except the Monorail.
