Six Flags Opens 2nd Rollercoaster Cuts

 

Unique Children's Salon Joins King of Prussia Mall in Pennsylvania

 

NEW YORK, July 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Six Flags, Inc., the world's largest regional theme park company, today opened its second Six Flags Rollercoaster Cuts -- the innovative children's boutique and hair salon that is revolutionizing the hair-cutting experience for kids and parents alike. The inaugural Rollercoaster Cuts opened this March, in West Hartford, CT to rave reviews. The second store is now open in King of Prussia Mall outside of Philadelphia in King of Prussia, PA.

 

Rollercoaster Cuts is like no other hair salon in the nation. Stepping inside, guests are immersed in an interactive, roller coaster spinning, Six Flags theme park experience. Each themed cutting station features custom-built coaster cars equipped with flat screen televisions that showcase exciting videos of Six Flags' adrenaline pumping rides and attractions, the latest from Six Flags TV, as well as a wide variety of child-friendly video games. At the Shampoof Theater, kids can choose to sit in a traditional chair or lie flat on their backs for a front row seat on some of Six Flags' biggest coasters with point-of-view camera angles offering a one-of-a-kind thrill. Rollercoaster Cuts is also home to lovable characters including The Wiggles and Mr. Six, who are always on hand to welcome every child every day.

 

For convenience, parents may book hair appointments online including customized kids salon packages like The Glammy, Zoink, Big Kapow and Blama Jama. By becoming CUTS CLUB members, families earn reward points each time they shop and every haircut comes complete with a FREE photo to capture the moment.

 

Specially priced one-day tickets and Season Passes to Six Flags Great Adventure, Six Flags New England, The Great Escape & Splashwater Kingdom and Six Flags Great Escape Lodge and Indoor Waterpark may be purchased at Rollercoaster Cuts. Current Six Flags Season Passholders enjoy additional savings in the salon.

 

"We are building on the success of our first store, launched in West Hartford, Connecticut just a little over three months ago," said Andrew Schleimer, Executive Vice President, Strategic Development and In-Park Services. "The concept has been met with overwhelming positive response and we look forward to entertaining and thrilling a whole new generation of Six Flags fans in Eastern Pennsylvania."

 

Six Flags Rollercoaster Cuts is the place for stylish kid's haircuts and family-friendly entertainment. Visit www.rollercoastercuts.com for more information.

Yeah Screamscape messed up with their report saying Philly doesn't have a Six Flags park, so what do you call GAdv then? Well GAdv is about half way between Philly and NYC but Philly is a little closer to GAdv.

I had a feeling someone here would take the ride out there when I heard this was opening. Do they have any Park Specific Merchandise there, or just the generic Six Flags stuff?

would be way cooler if they took the old cars from the real coasters and made you sit in them to get your hair cut

When were you there? Unfortunately the store looks completely empty.

 

We were there at an odd time on a weekday; the whole mall was experiencing a lull.

This is probably old news, but I was out at the King of Prussia mall today and Coaster Cuts is gone. This was an example of Shapiro's hair brain ideas. Did he really think unrelated diversification, an outdated and flawed 1970s business stratgy would help Six Flags?
