In the 2014 Basketball Championship, The University of Kentucky Wildcats played the University of Connecticut Huskies.

The two family parks Quassy, and Beech Bend made a wager to their obvious allegiances. Whoever team won (Wildcats or Huskies) the teams championship flag would be flown atop the rivals wooden coaster (Wooden Warrior or Kentucky Rumbler) Of course Uconn won the championship, so the KY Rumbler will be sporting the Huskies flag.

Haha, that's some funny stuff. I reckon that the Bluegrass State folk aren't gonna appreciate some damn yankee flag atop their coaster. That was a fun bet. :)

That's pretty neat. Better than the standard mayoral bets for various pro sports championships. Good stuff, Chris. And I love both of those rides, although I haven't been on the Rumbler since 2007.

Here's a pic atop the Kentucky Rumbler with UConn flag along side the stars & stripes. :)

There was another coaster/sports related wager, this time in Major League Baseball. The Cards lost the division series to the Cubs, so the American Thunder coaster at Six Flags STL will be renamed 'Cubs Thunder' for the remainder of 2015.

SF Great America is now doing a similar wager with SF Great Adventure. The wager is the renaming of the park through the end of Fright Fest and renaming one coaster...apparently Kingda Ka and Goliath are the collateral. This wager is, of course, tied to the NLCS between my beloved Mets and the Small Bears that kicked off last night.
