Tonight, the World Series begins between the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians and the bets have begun!
This includes theme parks.....
This year, we have two companies going head to head: Six Flags vs Cedar Fair
Six Flags Great America has wagered Cedar Point to the losing team singing the winning team's song. Cedar Point sweetened the wager by having the losing team having to name a roller coaster for opening weekend in honor of the winning team.
Here is the video courtesy of Cedar Point and Six Flags Great America:
“We are thrilled to be a part of this wager,” said Hank Salemi, park president of Six Flags Great America. “Our park is rallying around Chicago for a World Series win and can’t wait to hear ‘Go, Cubs, Go’ all the way from Sandusky.”
Jason McClure, vice president and general manager of Cedar Point added, “I think all of us in Ohio and Illinois are excited that our teams are playing October baseball. Our two parks are in the business of fun – so why not get into the spirit in our own unique way? We’re not going to lose, so they should probably get their video ready!”
I am not sure if I have seen two different theme park companies do this before. Its nice to see some dual marketing across the Great Lakes parks! Either way, this is going to be an exciting World Series. The last time the Indians won was in 1948. The Cubs won their last in 1908.
Oh, and go Cubs!Tweet
