SIX FLAGS AMERICA
Baltimore, Washington DC
Six Flags Theme Parks
Park News - (7/14/16) Six Flags America was closed shortly after 11am on Wednesday after the bomb squad was called in to investigate a suspicious package in the park. Shortly after the first package had been determined to be non-explosive, a second unknown package was also discovered in the park, which was also cleared by the bomb-squad as being harmless. The park was remained closed until just after 3pm to allow for investigators to conduct a thorough search of the entire theme park.
(6/17/16) The new VR Coaster version of Superman: Ride of Steel has opened at Six Flags America and unlike the New Revolution VR environment, the Superman one is much more story oriented, visually showing off a conflict between Superman and Lex Luthor that you get caught in the middle of, as each takes control of your journey for part of the ride experience through the busy landscape of metropolis. You can see the video with a reverse POV window embedded showing off the real coaster experience in the video below.
While I’ve yet to do this myself, and I never realized this before with the New Revolution video footage I saw, it seems there is no audio at all on these experiences at Six Flags which seems to be much more of a missing piece of the story when you have larger than life superheroes and villains right in your face and none of them are saying anything at all, when you know that Lex would be ranting and Supe’s would be saying heroic stuff like, “Don’t worry, I’ve got you” and so on. I love the way these look, but seriously, they need audio I think.
(2/19/16) During the conference call Jim Reid-Anderson confirmed that Holiday In The Park will be coming to two more new parks in late 2016: Six Flags St. Louis and Six Flags America.
2016 - Splashwater Falls - Confirmed - (9/3/15) A new interactive water play area is coming to the waterpark in 2016.
(5/28/15) For those wondering where the 2016 Waterpark teaser sign is in Six Flags America, I'm told that the fence is actually blocking off where Crocodile Cal's Outback Beach House used to be, as the park has removed it. This was an old style water fortress style attraction, complete with the obligatory huge dumping bucket of water on top that also contained a number of smaller kiddie slides.
As the waterpark is now without such a staple attraction, it would almost be safe to think that a much bigger and better water fortress concept might replace it in 2016.
(5/27/15) Looks like Six Flags America is already promoting some kind of expansion to the park's waterpark for 2016, by way of promotional graphics on a construction fence.
2017 - ROAR Revamp - Rumor - (8/15/16) It may be a little early for this rumor, but I'm hearing some early rumbling that Roar at Six Flags America may be given the same RMC transformation treatment for 2017 that was done to Roar at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom this year.
