ST LOUIS — Last week, Six Flags St. Louis and Six Flags Great America made a bet. The wager? The loser of the Major League Baseball’s National League Division Series had to rename one of its coasters after the winning team.

Since the Cubs beat the Cardinals, the St. Louis park renamed its American Thunder ride. It will be called “Cubs Thunder” for the remainder of the 2015 postseason.

Additionally, some St. Louis favorites including Mauls BBQ Sauce, pork steaks and toasted ravioli will be delivered to the Chicago area park on Friday to fulfill the lost bet.

If the Cubs had lost, Great America would have renamed its Raging Bull coaster “Raging Cardinals” and sent deep dish pizza and Old Style beer to the park.

That’s what you get when you taunt the Cubs!
