     "Today's announcement represents Six Flags Great America's continued

 more than 1 million audience members a year. To date, they have sold more
 than 22 million DVDs and videos and more than 5 million albums worldwide,
 and The Wiggles' successful television show has been broadcast on Disney
 Channel's Playhouse Disney since 2002.
     "Wiggles World," the park's third area devoted exclusively to children,
 will feature specially-themed rides and attractions including The Big Red
 Car ride, The Big Red Plane ride, Dorothy's Rosy Tea cups, Bouncin' with
 Wags ride, Henry's Splash Fountain, the S.S. Feathersword Pirate Ship play
 area, and the "Get Ready To Wiggle" show featuring the Wiggles' friends.
 The area will also include retail locations selling Wiggles merchandise and
 the Yummy Yummy Cafe serving healthy meals.
     "Wiggles World" will be populated by The Wiggles' cast of supporting
 characters: Dorothy the Dinosaur, Captain Feathersword, Wags the Dog and
 Henry the Octopus, who will pose for photos and perform in daily shows. The
 Wiggles themselves - Anthony, Sam, Jeff and Murray - will make an
 appearance and perform at the park May 28, 2007.
