Wiggles Word hits two US parks

Six Flags Great Adventure, Jackson, New Jersey and Six Flags New England, Agawam, Massachusetts, will each introduce a range of family-friendly attractions in 2007 based around the The Wiggles TV franchise.

At Great Adventure, Wiggles World will represent the park’s fourth area offering pint-sized children’s adventures and will be located next door to Six Flags Wild Safari.

Specially themed Wiggles rides and attractions will include The Big Red Car ride, The Big Red Plane ride, Dorothy the Dinosaur’s Racing to the Rainbow balloon ride, Bouncin’ with Wags ride, all from Zamperla, and the SS Feathersword Pirate Ship from The Resource Factory. The area will also include retail locations selling Wiggles merchandise and a restaurant, the Yummy Yummy Café.

At Six Flags New England, Agawam, Massachusetts, its version of Wiggles World will include The Big Red Car Ride, Dorothy the Dinosaur's Rosy Teacup Ride and the SS Feathersword Pirate Ship.

Originating from Australia, the Wiggles are the most popular children’s entertainers in the world, and Wiggles World will be designed to leverage their vast recognition and status among children aged two to six.

Each Wiggles World will be populated by the Wiggles' cast of supporting characters: Dorothy the Dinosaur, Captain Feathersword, Wags the Dog and Henry the Octopus, who will pose for photos and perform in daily shows. The Wiggles themselves – Anthony, Sam, Jeff and Murray – will also make occasional appearances.
