Capcom and Six Flags partner up for attraction
+Six Flags Magic Mountain partners with Capcom to bring #MonsterHunter attraction to Goliath roller coaster.
"Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, announced a partnership with Six Flags Entertainment Corporation, the world’s largest regional theme park operator, to bring the Monster Hunter™ 4 Ultimate experience to guests at Six Flags Magic Mountain, the “Thrill Capital of the World.” As part of the campaign, the park’s Goliath roller coaster will be re-themed to Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate beginning March 28 and through August 10. To help kick off the opening weekend of the program, the national Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate traveling Caravan Tour will also be making a stop at Six Flags Magic Mountain for special event days on March 28 and 29.
With the Six Flags partnership, the game will come to life with one dedicated passenger train of the Goliath coaster custom-skinned to resemble the game’s flagship Gore Magala monster. The Goliath “coaster giant” is a metal monster with a staggering 255 foot drop taken at 85 mph, making this one of the longest and fastest drops in the world. Once riders conquer the thrilling high-speed banked turns, camelback hills, huge spiral curves and “zero gravity” drops of the Gore Magala themed Goliath coaster, they will have a chance to tackle the ferocious Gore Magala in game form as they test out the Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate demo at kiosks inside the Cyber Cafe. Special Monster Hunter merchandise will also be for sale in the park to commemorate this ultimate vertical adventure.
Fans who visit Six Flags Magic Mountain for the opening weekend of the Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate program can also attend the special Caravan event on March 28 or 29, where they will be immersed in the world of Monster Hunter with a custom setting that recreates the look and feel of the traveling Caravan from the game. They will also be able to meet up to play the game with fellow hunters and Capcom staff on those days." - Capcom
I kinda wished they did this a all +Six Flags locations especially +Six Flags Great Adventure instead of just the California location. Other than that I'm all for it. +Six Flags should do more Video Game partnerships IMO.
