Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom has a judge's okay to tear down the Superman Tower of Power ride upon which a girl lost her feet last summer.Six Flags Magic Mountain is offering free admission with a toy donation for Toys for Tots. Offer's good on Dec. 2 , 8 and 9 and you must bring a new, unwrapped toy worth at least $15. (We told you about a similar deal at Knott's earlier this week.)The Universal theme park in South Korea, reported here last spring, is a go. (Thanks to reader David Graham for the tip.)Finally, I couldn't let this go unnoticed: There's an entry in the French version of Wikipedia devoted to... the Theme Park Insider Awards. But no such article on the English Wikipedia. Can we get that fixed, TPI readers/Wikipedians?Update: Somewhat off-topic, but still... Evel Knievel died. If you were a boy in the 1970s (like me), Evel was a big, big, big deal. I remember my Evel Knievel action figure and begging, *begging* my parents to take me to Kings Island on my eighth birthday to watch Evel jump. (They didn't.) FWIW, there will be an Evel Knievel-themed roller coaster at Six Flags St. Louis this spring.
