The Los Angeles Dodgers are playing the Boston Red Sox in Major League Baseball's World Series this year, which provides another opportunity for two theme parks to get on board the hype train with a bet.
This time, it's Six Flags Magic Mountain wagering a temporary name change for The New Revolution against Six Flags New England offering the same for Thunderbolt. Props to Six Flags Magic Mountain's PR team for its press release, which noted the name change from Thunderbolt to Dodgers Thunderbolt will happen "when the Los Angeles Dodgers win the World Series title," and not "if."
Should the Red Sox do what Vegas and bettors across the country expect and beat LA, New Revolution becomes Red Sox Revolution for the opening weekend of Holiday in the Park. Magic Mountain also would fly a Red Sox flag in its entry plaza. If the Dodgers win, its flag flies from atop SFNE's Scream tower. The president of the losing community's park also will wear the winning team's jersey on opening night of their holiday event.
