News & Rumors


Baltimore, Washington DC
Six Flags Theme Parks




icon_STOPPark News - (6/27/20) Six Flags America has announced that the park will reopen to Members and Season Passholders on July 1-2, and then to the public on July 3. Reservations are required through the Six Flags website to allow for reduced capacity in the park. Please note that the Hurricane Harbor waterpark will not be open at this time, with plans to open it at a later date.
    Remember all guests and employee are required to wear masks during your visit to the park and everyone will be required to pass a temperature screening before being allowed onto the property. Social distancing will be in enforced in the park and ride and show capacity will be limited because of this.
    (3/13/20) Six Flags has announced that they will delay the opening of Six Flags America through until sometime in April. The park will not open for the season on March 28 as originally intended.
    (1/27/20) According to a presentation made to an ACE convention last week, Six Flags America is planning on building a new DC Villains themed bar space in the Gotham City area, adding new Harley Quinn themed merchandise near Spinsanity when it opens around Memorial Day weekend, in addition to some new crowd control measures near the Stunt Arena and in the security pavilion as you enter the park. Other improvements you may notice this season will include some new LED lighting packages being added to certain attraction areas along with some new paint. You can watch a video of the presentation below for more details.



icon_STOP2021 - Harley Quinn Spinsanity - (7/3/20) A reader stopped by Six Flags America and sent back a photo of the current status of Spinsanity. Unfortunately, as you can see, it looks like work had stopped on the ride back in March or April and they still have several weeks to go before it could be finished. WIth that in mind, it seems a fairly safe bet that the new for 2020 attraction will be officially pushed back to open in 2021.  (Photo credit - Eric Stehmer)

    (5/20/20) A reader sent in a couple of pictures of Harley Quinn under construction at Six Flags America. Please note that these pictures were taken at least 6 weeks ago. While I’m not sure of what the current status of the project is right now, I figured SFA fans would still enjoy seeing some pictures of the park’s newest ride going up.
    (4/5/20) We’ve heard a little good news for Six Flags America this week. From what we are told, construction on the park’s new Harley Quinn Spinsanity ride is still under way and it appears they have the ride’s four-legged support structure in place at this point.
    (8/29/19) New for 2020 is Harley Quinn Spinsanity, a giant pendulum ride that will swing 40 riders at a time up to 15-stories tall at 120 and hit speeds up to 70mph.

    (8/21/19) A new construction wall with funny “keep out” style messages painted on it has appeared at Six Flags America, marking the site of where the park may be planning to add a new attraction for 2020. I’m told the site being blocked from view is the site of the former Skycoaster ride which would mean that it should have the clearance for just about any tall ride able to toss riders around in the air.
    (5/29/19) The SFA Fans page on Facebook uncovered an interesting document from the park that seems to indicate that they are doing some soil / core sampling all around the area in Gotham City where the former Skycoaster used to be. While the site isn’t the biggest in the world, the site itself would make a nearly perfect fit if they were thinking of adding their own version of Wonder Woman: Lasso of Truth (Zamperla Giant Discovery).
