First-Ever Nationwide Wii Tournament Brings People Together with Active-Play
Video Games at Six Flags Magic Mountain
WHAT: Nintendo is hosting a series of special interactive events at Six Flags Magic Mountain as part of “Wii
Games: Summer 2010,” the first-ever nationwide Wii™ video game tournament. On Fridays, Saturdays and
Sundays through Aug. 15, people of all ages are invited to get off the couch and on their feet for a
chance to win great prizes while having fun playing Nintendo`s motion-control video games.
Wii Games: Summer 2010 events will also offer fun activities for consumers and families who aren`t
competing in tournament play. Attendees and spectators can participate in noncompetitive game play and
sample Nintendo`s Super Mario Galaxy™ 2 game for the Wii system. Similar events are being held
throughout the summer at select shopping malls and other Six Flags theme parks across the country.
Qualifying winners will compete in the Wii Games: Summer 2010 national championship in September. Full
