Experience Wii at Six Flags!

UPDATE: This is also going to be appearing at YMCAs throughout the United States.

Yesterday, Six Flags theme parks across the USA opened yesterday morning. What wasn't expected was, at these theme parks there were Wii Experience centers, which contained 10 Wiis and 10 Nintendo DS Lite units. I happened to be at the parks opening and saw that they had the following games playable:

- Excite Truck
- WarioWare: Smooth Moves
- SSX Blur
- Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
- Super Paper Mario
- Wii Sports
- Wii Play
- Cooking Mama: Cook Off!
- Diddy Kong Racing DS
- Wario: Master of Disguise
- Custom Robo

Yes, you heard me correctly, Super Paper Mario is featured at these stations, but unfortunetely at my location, they hadn't realized that they forgot to put the disc in!!!! (AHHHHHH!!!) So, if anyone is in the area of a Six Flags theme park and can't wait until Monday to play the full version of Super Paper Mario, it's something worth checking out. Also, note that Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess was only a demo of fishing and a portion of the Goron Mines dungeons (with a slightly weakened version of the dungeon's boss). Each unit also houses either 1 or 2 Wii Remotes, only attached to Nunchuks on games in which they are required.

Here, no licenses are required to play, but the controllers have a thick string attaching them to the wii units, though the string is long enough so that it won't affect gameplay. Each television set is a Sharp Aquos, with a shield in front of it so they don't break! :D
And last, but not least. Each Wii is equipped with the earliest available firmware, but configured to component (480p) display.
