City Paper is not for tourists
Dan Snyder’s bid to have theme park fans view Six Flags as they do Disney is taking another big hit this week. Six Flags Great Escape Lodge, a hotel owned by Snyder’s theme park chain, has apparently gone viral.
Not Soulja Boy viral. Legionnaires Disease viral.
New York health authorities now say at least 388 visitors to the wannabe Disney resort have come down with cases of something called Norovirus. Four of the sickees have already filed lawsuits against Six Flags.
From Newsday: “Norovirus is characterized by acute gastrointestinal pain, vomiting and diarrhea lasting one or two days. The illness is not considered dangerous to the general public.”
In other words, Norovirus is not to be confused with Norvovirus, an ailment which crippled Snyder’s team during the Norv Turner era and was characterized by malaise and an inability to win close games.
