Imagine chowing down on pizza and washing it down with a Slurpee, followed by a deep-fried Snickers and some funnel cake covered in crispy bacon and maple cream.
Now imagine finishing up the day by jumping on more than a dozen high-speed roller coasters.
For teenagers, this may sound like the makings of a great day. For most adults, it's a recipe for extreme nausea.
Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia is launching into this year's peak spring and summer seasons with several new menu items for guests, including Slurpees, the blended ice drinks that -- until now -- were sold exclusively at 7-Eleven convenient stores.
The new food items are an example of a nationwide trend among theme parks to boost food sales by expanding the menu. Food sales generate at least 17% of revenue at theme parks, according to the International Assn. of Amusement Parks and Attractions.
