    Six Flags in New Jersey, Gurnee Make NLCS Bet
    Six Flags Great America

    Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois, has made another bet on the Cubs, this time with Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson Township, New Jersey.

    If the Cubs win the NLCS against the New York Mets, the New Jersey park will rename their record-breaking Kingda Ka roller coaster to "Kingda Cubs." They will also rename the entire park to "Six Flags Great Cubs." 

    If the Mets win, however, the Gurnee park will rename the famed Goliath roller coaster to "GoMets" and change the name of the park to "Six Flags Great Mets." 

    The name changes will take effect at the conclusion of the series, but the parks will return to their usual names when Fright Fest ends.

    During the NLDS, Six Flags Great America and Six Flags St. Louis also wagered a bet. When the Cubs won the series, the American Thunder roller coaster in St. Louis became the "Cubs Thunder." Six Flags St. Louis also had to send some Maull's BBQ sauce with pork steaks and some famous St. Louis toasted ravioli to Gurnee.
