SIX FLAGS AMERICA
Baltimore, Washington DC
Six Flags Theme Parks
Park News - (4/20/17) According to the local news, the inspection of the Joker's Jinx coaster that stranded riders last week has been finished and the ride cleared by the state to reopen for guests once again. According to the report and a statement from Six Flags America the problem was determined to be with one of the coaster wheels, which has now been solved. Joker's Jinx is now open once again.
(4/14/17) Six Flags America had some troubles with Joker's Jinx on Thursday evening, when the coaster apparently stalled out or valleyed near the top of the spaghetti bowl layout, stranding 24 riders to await rescue. As I'm writing this on Thursday evening, the riders are still on the coaster, awaiting rescue from the local fire department who has also arrived on site who has begun the process of removing any small children from the ride first via a ladder truck.
(3/27/17) Six Flags America is joining in the VR Coaster experience this year, launching their own version of Galactic Attack VR onto the park's Mind Eraser coaster starting on April 1st.
2017 - Wonder Woman: Lasso of Truth - (9/27/16)
A reader has confirmed that the new Wonder Woman ride will be located in the back of the park, just before you pass the train tracks on the way to the Superman coaster.
(9/1/16) Confusing things up a little bit this year Six Flags America has announced they are adding a 24-story tall SkyScreamer style Star Flyer ride... but instead of calling it SkyScreamer like the rest of the Six Flags parks across the country they are going to call this one Wonder Woman Lasso of Truth for some reason. The official announcement is below.
(8/31/16) What’s coming to Six Flags America in 2017? Unfortunately it won’t be a new coaster, despite a previous rumor claiming so. While I’m not sure exactly what it is just yet our spy network has uncovered the name for this new attraction:
Wonder Woman: Lasso of Truth
What is it? We’ll find out tomorrow.
2018- Launched Coaster - Rumor - (3/14/17) So what does 2018 have in store for Six Flags America? Unfortunately as the park is slowly getting a reputation for getting a lot of "hand me down" rides from other Six Flags parks, our rumor lies along those lines. In this case, our source tells us that a current whisper going around is that the park may be planning to receive a launched coaster to be removed from one of the other Six Flags parks for 2018.
The interesting thing is that back in January, we had also heard a rumor that Six Flags Great America may be considering retiring their own V2: Vertical Velocity (Intamin Impulse) coaster and that it would be sent off to another Six Flags park if they opt to close it down early in the later half of this season.
Just something to think about, but in the meantime, if anyone spots any unusual survey markings around Six Flags America when it opens for the season, please do report them in to us.
