Six Flags has been revamping its theme parks all around the country to help satisfy the gaming world. The theme park has been adding "Gaming Houses" to its sites. The new attractions feature state-of-the-art gaming equipment that can be used by visitors.

Games like Fortnite, FIFA 2023 and League of Legends are available for people who are attending the theme park to play. Assumably, Six Flags will probably be introducing quite a few other games throughout the rest of the season too.

To promote their new Gaming Houses, Six Flags and Coca-Cola are hosting a $30,000 Fortnite tournament over Labor Day weekend.

A trophy belt will also be awarded to the winners. This will give people quite the incentive to compete at their best ability.
