GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Six Flags Entertainment Corporation (NYSE: SIX), the world’s largest regional theme park company, and Activision Publishing, Inc. announced today their partnership to support the upcoming release of the highly anticipated Call of Duty®: Black Ops III, launching worldwide on November 6, 2015, by re-naming the Apocalypse roller coaster at Six Flags Magic Mountain the “Shadows of Evil” The Ride for the entire run of Fright Fest®, September 26 - November 1.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III will descend on Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California, with a terrifying experience based on the game’s new Zombies mode, “Shadows of Evil.” For the first time in the park’s history, the wooden coaster Apocalypse will be transformed for Fright Fest, transporting guests to the 1940s Film Noir-inspired Morg City, including zombie encounters and more.
This marks the third year Six Flags and Activision’s Call of Duty are joining forces to support the Call of Duty® series, building off the success of the national pre-order program supported inside parks and at GameStop stores. Beginning September 1, 2015, any consumer, 17 years old or older, who pre-orders Call of Duty: Black Ops III at GameStop stores or GameStop.com will receive $10 off admission at Six Flags and a complimentary Fright Fest attraction wristband valued at up to $25.
