SAN ANTONIO, TX, UNITED STATES, July 25, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — This summer Coca-Cola and Six Flags have partnered up to host one of the biggest gaming events ever held, a Summer Showdown gaming festival and tournament. The star-studded event will be led by renowned celebrity gamers, including Bugha, Sommerset, Zemie, and more.
The two-day tournament launches after a widely successful run of Six Flags Summer Gaming Houses. All season long Six Flags parks across the country have been transformed into havens for gaming enthusiasts with the introduction of Gaming Houses. These immersive experiences allow visitors to delve into the worlds of their favorite games like Fortnite, FIFA ‘23, and League of Legends, surrounded by cutting-edge equipment, futuristic designs, and a vibrant community of passionate players of all ages. Tickets to popular attractions can be purchased through the Six Flags app or won online at sixflags.com/gameon.
The action-packed tournament will commence on Labor Day weekend at Six Flags Fiesta in San Antonio, Texas at their world-class ESIX Arena which features stunning Razer gaming stations, and mesmerizing multicolored lighting, providing the perfect stage for the epic esports tournament. The fun starts on Saturday, September 2 at 12pm, as the creator talents take on a series of thrilling challenges in the Fortnite Park Challenge. Then on Sunday at midday, the adrenaline will surge as the four creators face off against 50 fans in a creator rumble, vying for the ultimate $30,000 prize and the prestigious trophy belt. Following both games, the park will host a creator meet-and-greet with fans, as well as competitions for guests to enter and claim their own prizes.
Six Flags Vice President Stephanie Borges shared, “We are thrilled to host the culmination of our summer esports activation at our state-of-the-art premier esports arena, eSix. This exciting weekend of competition offers an unparalleled opportunity for our guests both in-park and across the globe.”
