Six Flags Entertainment and Samsung Mobile Collaborate on a Green** Initiative

NEW YORK and DALLAS, August 2, 2010 — Six Flags Entertainment Corporation (NYSE: SIX), the world’s largest regional theme park company, and Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile), the No. 1 mobile phone provider in the U.S,*are teaming up on a Go Green** program. The comprehensive program includes a tiered consumer sweepstakes promotion with multi-platform Six Flags Media Networks support, and national in-park activation of the Samsung Mobile Take-Back Program.

Starting July 30, 2010, guests can enter for a chance to win a VIP Trip for four to the Six Flags Wild Safari in Jackson, NJ, the largest drive through safari outside of Africa. The Grand Prize also includes admission tickets to the nearby theme park Six Flags Great Adventure. Over 100 lucky entrants will also win various Samsung Mobile phones or Samsung Prize Packs.. The program offers two eco-friendly** ways to enter – guests can enter by texting “GREEN” to 60600 or online at www.sixflags.com/greensweeps. The sweepstakes will be featured on sixflags.com and supported with full in-park media platforms via Six Flags Media Networks Television, Digital Menu Board, and Jumbotron networks.

The Samsung Mobile Take-Back Program will be activated nationwide across all Six Flags domestic theme parks. Guests can drop off old mobile phones in Samsung Recycling bins located in designated areas in the parks. Samsung Recycling bins will be available to guests on park operating days beginning July 30 and ending on September 30.

“We are thrilled to be working with Samsung Mobile on such a unique marketing program, driving awareness of Six Flags’ commitment to a greener and cleaner company while providing a once-in-a-lifetime sweepstakes opportunity to our Wild Safari park.” David McKillips, SVP of Corporate Alliances.

“Samsung Mobile has numerous eco-friendly initiatives in place, including our Mobile Take-Back program and the launch of two eco-friendly mobile phones, the Samsung Reclaim™ and Samsung Restore™,” said Paul Golden, Chief Marketing Officer, Samsung Mobile. “We are excited to expand our recycling program with Six Flags locations and encourage customers to bring in old mobile phones to the parks this summer.”
