Walmart announced Monday that it has bought the rights to roll out its new Roller Skates, a roller-sliding system that is expected to debut in stores sometime this summer.
The $80 Roller Skate will be a new version of the company’s popular RollerCoaster Tycoon series, which is a popular game in the video game industry.
Walmart is using the trademark to market its RollerCoastal Roller Skating System, which it has already licensed for use on roller skis in the U.S. and Europe.
Walmart will also offer a limited number of RollerCoasts in stores.
The company has long maintained that RollerCoasters were not its original invention.
But, Walmart said it was seeking to bring RollerCoades to the consumer market as a means to boost sales and increase its overall profits.
The announcement came just days after Disney, the Walt Disney Co. and the other companies announced plans to buy out the rights for RollerCoaces, and in addition to RollerCoaches, the three companies are also buying out rights for other popular brands like the Nintendo and PlayStation video game franchises.
“We’re proud of the innovation that our roller coaster companies have created over the years,” Disney spokeswoman Katie Schmoll said in a statement.
“They have brought excitement, excitement and excitement to families, communities and parks around the world.”
RollerCoach and RollerCoacademy were two of the first roller-coasters in the world that were made exclusively for children, and they’ve become household names.
Walmart has also licensed the RollerCoace Roller Coaster for use in parks around China, and RollerConcept has licensed the roller-track for use at Walt Disney World theme parks in the United States and Europe, according to Walmart.
In its announcement, Walmart described the RollerConceptor as a new RollerCoasting, with a “new-found sense of adventure and playfulness,” that “is uniquely Disney-inspired.”
The RollerConception RollerCoave was created by the Uptown Roller Coaches in Austin, Texas.
It has been sold to Walt Disney, and will be used in the new rollercoaster in Orlando, Florida, and the company will be making a limited run of RollerConceptions in stores later this summer, Walmart added.
