Six Flags America is located in Mitchellville, Maryland, close to Washington D.C. and just 30 miles from Baltimore. It features the Six Flags chain's standard array of intense roller coasters, thrilling flat rides and lightly-themed kids' attractions. Among its biggest draws are the towering Superman: Ride of Steel hypercoaster and the zombie-themed Apocalypse - The Last Stand coaster, while the majority of the children's rides are crammed into the Whistlestop Park and Looney Tunes Movie Town areas.

Park History

The park was first opened as the Largo Wildlife Preserve in July 1974, and was owned by ABC Television. Its opening few seasons proved to be disastrous, and it was closed in 1978. However, it was rescued by Wild Kingdom host Jim Fowler a year later, before a second sale to a local consortium in 1981 which saw it renamed as Wild World. This marked the start of its transformation into an amusement park, with a variety of midway rides and a small water park being added. The Wild One wooden coaster was moved to the park in 1986, and a series of new thrill rides were added over the proceeding decade. Premier Parks acquired it over in 1992, renaming it as Adventure World. The chain's subsequent takeover of Six Flags led to yet another rebranding in 1999 to its current name.
