Six Flags today launched "The Carrothead Club," its official club for kids aged four to ten. As members of the club, "Carrotheads" will receive special recognition during their park visit, exclusive opportunities to enter contests to win a variety of unique prizes and in park experiences, a monthly newsletter and an official "Carrothead Club" hat.
Membership in "The Carrothead Club" is free, and kids can join by attending Brunch With Bugs at any of the 13 Six Flags branded parks in the U.S. Brunch With Bugs is a special reservation-only meal for kids and their families with Bugs Bunny and his Looney Tunes pals; Bugs and his friends put on a show, pose for private photos, give out special prizes and of course serve up a delicious buffet meal.
"Carrotheads" will also receive a monthly newsletter - The Carrothead Club Courier -- that contains puzzles, photos, carrot recipes and interviews with Six Flags specialists who get to the root of questions kids REALLY want answered - like "how do roller coasters work?" - plus contests and the inside scoop on fun details about Six Flags parks, from new coasters to celebrity appearances.
"The Carrothead Club is the latest family-friendly enhancement to Six Flags' in-park experience, and a way to continue kids' connection with Six Flags after they leave the park," said Carol Silver, Six Flags Director of Entertainment and Marketing. "Enabling kids to take a piece of the park with them is a unique way for our guests to become Six Flags brand ambassadors in their individual communities."
It is just another cynical way for SF to gouge there guests by promoting something as "free and family friendly", but the reality is it isnt free at all as you are forced to over pay for a character breakfest, which isnt family friendly to the families wallet.
Now if they wanted this to be free and family friendly they would let guests become members via the internet or in-park free signup and not force several family members to pay for a breakfest!!
I think I am going to have to agree with Bob O on this one.
Just for the hell of it, I wanted to see how much it would cost for a family of four to attend a character lunch on Saturday.
You should have seen the look on my face when the lovely lady at the counter told me the price. $17.99 each for me, and my wife. $12.99 (I think) each, for my two kids. Almost near $60.00, for the four of us. For that, Bugs Bunny better have fed my kids, and Wonder Woman should be giving me a back massage while I ate my hamburger.
This is a cool promotion, but Six Flags should have done it differently.
If it walks like socialist, quacks like socialist, smells like a socialist, .... it's a socialist. Hope, and change we can believe in.
I think this is a good idea to bring family entertainment to the park. Kids can look back from their memories at SFGAm. Im not sure on this one but didnt like Disneyworld had like an autogrpah book where you can get autographs from all your employees. This can be like that but better. You get information on whats going on with the park and other special offers they give the kids. I think its a good idea espicially with the new gas deal. Smart move president.
No matter how hard it is...Never EVER give up. The real failure is those who dont try.
