MGM Cuts Deal with Six Flags for 'Stargate'
MGM Studios has cut a two-year deal with Six Flags to open 'Stargate SG 3000' simulator rides at three parks this year.
MGM Studios has cut a two-year deal with Six Flags to open attractions based on MGM's syndicated TV series "Stargate SG-1" at Six Flags theme parks in three U.S. cities.
This marks the North American premiere of Stargate SG 3000, a simulation ride that debuted at Space Center Bremen in Germany late last year.
The Stargate attractions will open this season at Six Flags Marine World (Vallejo, Calif.), Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom (Louisville, Ky.) and Six Flags Great America (Chicago).
Almost anything that replaces Dino Island at SFGAM will be a big improvement. I havent watched the tv show at all,but i really liked the movie Stargate so hopefully this will be a good addition.

Something already replaced Dino Island. It's predecessor, Space Shuttle America, decided to make its way back to the building for the 2002 season.
I would appreciate it if the attraction got more than a new film. Perhaps the seats and the computer system itself would use an upgrade.
Goes any one know how far Holiday world is from SF in Louisville? I have convinced my husband that we have to ride Zinga(water ride at Holiday worlds waterpark). We figured we'd fly to Louisville and I forgot there is a SF there. I'm picking up my SF sp on Friday and riding Nitro. I haven't been on a coaster since 8/3/03
and I need my fix!
Its sad that last year SFGAM had to bring back a ride that sucked when it was new and has only gotten worse over time and was even worse than Dino Island.
These films made the Elvira film-Supersitions- look very good.

Funny, Rob. At one point, I thought Space Shuttle America's theming was more fit for the pavilion, and had a far better ride. Guess I was wrong.
Fright Fest is always a highlight, enabling me to actually get in line for GAm's motion sim, and not feel guilty for wasting time.
Superstition, flawed as it may be, had at least an eerie visual theme. SSA is a reeking piece of work that actually had me wishing I was on Body Wars instead. And that's bad...
They could spend money on something better then a simulator. I've never enjoyed them, except for Back To The Future.
I would agree about Superstituion. I was very happy to see it last year, as the year before they didnt play it and it is such a big improvement over SSA. I hope the new show is good.
