Thrill-ride amusement parks are always working to one-up each other by creating the biggest and baddest rides that they can imagine. Back in the day, roller coasters used to go straight with a few ups and downs in the mix. Then they started going straight down. Then they started going upside down, backwards, sideways and traveling through time (okay, so maybe that last one is a lie). The latest creation slated to hit Six Flags San Antonio, however, takes the entire thrill ride experience into the “fourth” dimension and uses the Batman franchise to do it. Check out this video and see what you think of the Batman 4D Roller Coaster madness. (more…)
Finally an Olympic game for people with no athletic skill whatsoever! Nintendo is set to host a tour of Wii Olympics at Six Flag theme parks and Malls around the country. It will kick off July 16 at Liberty State Park in New Jersey. Our assumption is that no one in Jersey has high standards, so it’s the perfect place to start and work out any kinks. (Suck it Jersey!). This all ages event will feature 5 games for the competition; Wii Sports Resort Bowling and Basketball, the Wii Fit Hula Hoop challenge, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and Mario Kart Wii. Qualifying winners will be flown to Los Angeles to duke it out with one another for a chance to win game systems, entertainment centers, a cruise, trophies,and the admiration of other fat kids. Have you got what it takes? If you think you might check out the official website for more details.
